  1. I work as a private archivist and your best practices I use as a GPS to set my course. This latest newsletter I plan to forward to my clients. It’s full of great information. Thank you so much.

    I noted that you contributed to my family archives on I also did a family tree on

    My great great great grandfather Michael Conway fought on the side of the Yankees in the Civil War under the 69 Irish Brigade. He was honored for his service and promoted to Lieutenant after his death. He was from my mother’s side of the family. On my father’s side you contributed to my grandfather’s employment at the Dime Savings Bank in Brooklyn, Ny. He used to take a trolley to the bank from his home in Brooklyn. His wif (my grandmother Florence Kane Mackey was a cousin to the founders Charles Carroll, Daniel Carroll and Bishop John Carroll (founder of Georgetown University). How can I get more info on my direct link to these men? My great grandfather Thomas Kane who was a shipwright was a foreman during the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge. His address was 205 Ovington Avenue, Bayridge. And Carroll gardens nearby was named after our known relative Charles Carroll, signet of the Declaration of Independence. Thank you for all the great work you do for American families. Maureen Mackey Dolan
