Irish Immigrants of the Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank

Kevin J. Rich (with the assistance of Marilyn Sieberman) recently completed "Irish Immigrants of the Emigrant Industrial Savings Bank." This limited edition lists the actual banking data of mostly Irish immigrants whose account numbers were 2501 to 7500. This might seem dull but many of these entries reveal fascinating details about how and why the Irish came to New York, where they came from and where they settled. ($29.99 / 382 pages / Broadway-Manhattan)
