New York Researcher, vol. 25, no. 1: 22 has this to say: This excellent book provides a comprehensive overview of Irish immigration to New York City and methods of finding the place of origin for Irish ancestors. The author, a native-born Irishman, a sociologist, and a professional genealogist, covers the relevant record groups and publications, offers research strategies, and provides a list of every Catholic parish that has existed in each of the five boroughs of New York City. Catholic, non-Catholic, and public cemeteries are covered. The bibliography includes books, online sources, and articles in periodicals, and is comprehensive. This is a reference book that belongs on the shelf of all New York City researchers. A full review will appear in a future edition of The NYG&B Record.
