    3. Manty of you have probably heard, Rootsweb is closing down all the lists on March 2, March 1 is the last date to post. The archives will be there but no mails will show. I'm so sad. I've been sick or you would have heard from me earlier. I want to thank Deb for the awesome job she did as admin and when her health was rough she gave me the list. The 2 times we ran into some trouble on the list the on list and off list messages of support meant the world to me. I I could do 1 list on google groups this one would be it. I just don't trust my heath to keep it going. If you want to post your lines so it's in the archives add your email in the post so it will show up. I hope to add some of mine. A few came with the Gov. in 1800. Both my grandparents were born there. If an experienced admin want to try to make a new group, I'm open to it. I heard from someone who wanted to take my DC-Memories group I didn't respond. There were posts for a for weeks and they stopped. Again Thank you for all your support. I'm going to concentrate on my genealogy. I wish all of you the best as you have been to me. Margy [email protected] [email protected]

    3. I'm glad you found something useful. I get their newsletter every month (it could be weekly), but I usually don't pay much attention to it. I also forgot why I signed up for it. Anyway, when I saw the African American links I thought about your post and decided to send it along in case you or others might be interested. Actually the link didn't show up until after I sent it which is why I mentioned that. It wouldn't let me do it manually in Outlook 2016 which I'm just getting used to and it has its quirks.

    3. Michael, I found Irish immigrants entering New York enroute DC, but they could come through Canada or Boston, or Baltimore or Etc. I found them in DC newspapers on LOC site and Ancestry.com, and Naturalization records. BELOW is a quote from a message I saved some years back about DC archives. Ali Rahamann was very helpful. I don't know it he's still there.

Thanks! Bill Branch ARCHIVIST Office of Public Records/DC Archives 1300 Naylor Court, NW Washington, DC 20001 202-671-1116 direct 202-671-1105 main 202-727-6076 fax From: Angela Gabbard [mailto:[email protected]] Sent: Friday, May 01, 2009 11:00 AM To: Branch, William (EOM) Subject: RE: Archives Request Hello, Thank you for your message. I am very much looking forward to receiving the will so you have made my week!!!! I had a couple of quick questions about making requests from the archives that I am hoping you might be able to answer. I belong to the Rootsweb Washington DC e-mail list. Over the past several years there have been mixed messages about making requests from the archives. I was hoping you might outline how you like requests to be submitted. We all very much appreciate the service you offer and want to make life as easy as possible for Archive staff. So. Do you have a request form that you wish to be completed? It really depends on the what you're seeking. There are different forms and different procedures depending on the type of information being sought, and whether you are local or out of town. Building permits, plats and plans must be requested through the Dept. of Consumer & Regulatory Affairs (DCRA) Construction Permits Division; requests for incorporation documents must also be submitted to DCRA to its Corporation Division. Wills, death certificates, birth certificates, and marriage records requests should be submitted to the DC Archives, by regular mail, email, fax or telephone. Email however, is preferred. All telephone requests should be followed up with a fax or email, thus providing official documentation of your request. If so, is it available online? I 'm knowledgeable enough to respond to the procedures required by DCRA for submitting requests, but you can get more information via their internet website. Just go to www.dc.gov and then scroll down to agencies, hit the drop link and then click DCRA. At our site under the Office of the Secretary, [email protected] , there is a form which you can print and fax or scan for genealogy requests. The key though is to provide as much information as possible for genealogy requests. Do you want all requests submitted in writing? Our preference is to have all requests in writing, and for the research/requestor to provide as much detailed information as possible on the subject matter to assist in locating the requested records. It is advisable also to include a contact number where you can be reached during business hours inc-case we need to consult with you. Can we call or e-mail? You can do either, however we prefer email. If you call, however, please follow-up with an email request for official documentation. If you do accept e-mailed requests what address should they be submitted to? As stated earlier we actually prefer email, but you can use regular mail as well. Please mail to Research Request, DC Archives, 1300 Naylor Court, NW, Washington, DC 20001 Do you want a stamped returned address submitted with each request? No! In most cases, a regular envelope is not large enough to hold the documents being sent. We will mail the documents free of copy costs and mailing costs. There is a limit per request, so we ask you to use discretion when making your requests. Do you need the Box number to request wills or is the individuals name and date of death sufficient? Again, we ask that you provide as much information as you can when submitting requests. Having a year and box number to go with the name expedites the process but is not a requirement. However, having only the name and year of death only puts us in the ballpark, but not on the playing field. Is there a list online or a brochure, etc that lists the items that the DC archives has that would be of interest to genealogists and or the dates of the documents that you have (i.e. death certificates from ____-____) Yes there is and we're working now to get on our website. It is called the DC Archives Registry and is a list of all the holdings in the DC Archives. It is up0dated on a regular basis, and will provide the researcher with invaluable information for doing research at the DC Archives. What is the general turn-around time for requests? The current turn -around- time for processing requests generally speaking is 48 to 72 hours, depending on the volume of requests. We are currently also short of staff and this is also a factor. Is the a maximum number of requests we can make at one time? Yes! We ask that researchers submit no more than 5 items for research per week and 10 per month due to the large volume of requests received. I'd appreciate any guidance and guidelines you can provide and will pass them along to the Washington DC rootsweb list as well. Mr. Ali Rahmaan is actually the archivist who handles most of the genealogy research requests. He can be reached at 202-671-1107 and [email protected] Between the 2 of us, and there are only 3 people on staff now, we'll do our best to assist you in any way we can. We truly understand the importance of genealogy research. Thanks again for all that you do! I really appreciate it. You're quite welcomed. Please feel free to contact me anytime !

Just wanted to let you know that we have not forgotten you and in fact, the item you requested, a copy of the will of James Fraser, Sr. (1865) box 33, has already been mailed to the address you provided. Normally I would've emailed the copy to you, however, once scanned the document's poor resolution made it extremely hard to read and not feasible to email. Hopefully, you'll have a hard copy in a few days. If I can be of further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me. Thank you!

    3. Just a few questions for Irish immigrants to Washington, D. C. Prior to 1880. What port or ports of entry would they have used? What documents exists for Immigrants to the District of Columbia and where would they be stored? Is there any databases online for immigration to the District of Columbia? Any other suggestion for researching Irish immigration to the District of Columbia? Cheers, Michael A Fitzpatrick Descendant from County Wicklow
