The Wrindex                

Source Material in Library Collections

Special Note:  January 2009

You can now visit the Patrick J. Dowling Library at the Irish Cultural Center in San Francisco (web site:  www.irishcentersf.org/library ) and access the actual microfilm collection that was used to create our database. This extensive collection of early San Francisco newspaper microfilms was donated to the Patrick J. Dowling library by Thomas Wrin, creator of The Wrindex. 

You can look up a name or an Irish society on the library's copy of our database, note the publication and date of any mentions in a newspaper, go to the newspaper microfilms, and read and print the article. No tracking down the source articles in other archives or libraries - the microfilm is right there for you! Please note that the library is open on a limited schedule and you should call before making plans to visit.

The Patrick J. Dowling's Library holdings also include the San Francisco Leader (LED) ,Pat Dowling's books "California, the Irish Dream" and "Irish Californians,Historic, Benevolent, Romantic" (PJD# 1 and PJD# 2),and R. A. Burchell's book "The San Francisco Irish, 1848-1880" (RAB) and it also has The Wrindex, Access (R) version.

You can go directly to these libraries and look up the complete articles referenced in The Wrindex. Some of the materials may also be available through the InterLibrary Loan System.
