It's time to write another March issue of First Friday Genealogy with Sassy JaneThis is the 13th March issue in a row I've written and you've read, according to this highly accurate calendar from KQED

Another month staying safe at home, so what to do? There are always
genealogy projects, if you have a mind. I don't think I do anymore :) 

Instead, on this 13th March in a row, let's talk about
archival collections that have been digitized and are available from the comfort of home, aka international and US digital archives. Following are just a few examples. 
Between 1883 and 1908, at least 307,823 young Irish women emigrated from Ireland to New York City. Those were not met by family or friends were assisted by the Mission of Our Lady of the Rosary for the Protection of Irish Immigrant Girls, established in 1883 by a wealthy benefactress.

Today, the ledgers of the Irish Mission at Watson House have been
digitized and are searchable/browsable online. Entries, from 1883 through 1954, usually include the name of ship and arrival date, woman's name, age, county of origin, and destination address.

Vermont Historical Society genealogy portal offers indexes of original genealogical records at the Leahy Library at VHS in Barre, Vermont. VHS notes:

"These electronic resources are provided as a convenience to researchers who want to access primary source materials without making a trip to the library. A larger selection of materials are listed in our online catalog, and an even larger number of collections have been cataloged only with a card indexing system at the library. Be sure to visit our library to explore the broadest possible collection of resources."

Just a few of their online genealogical collections:
