Subject: Ireland to Chicago?
Date: Wed, 17 May 2006 14:39:52 -0400
If a person came to America (specifically Chicago) from Ireland in 1880,
which city would have been the most likely arriving destination? Would they
have traversed by train or horse and buggy to Chicago?
MY GG Grandmother had such a common name (Bridget Breen), that even if I
found a Bridget Breen on a ships manifest, what criteria is available to
make sure it is the right Bridget?
