Using Genealogy to Tell the Story of Irish Famine Immigrants
Historian Tyler Anbinder will discuss using genealogical research to tell the story of Irish immigration to New York City during the Great Famine. In collaboration with a genealogist, he has tracked down thousands of famine immigrants and is now compiling their stories into a Famine Generation group biography. Anbinder is professor of History at George Washington University and the author of City of Dreams: The 400-Year Epic History of Immigrant New York. He also served as a consultant to Martin Scorsese’s The Gangs of New York.
