The Wrindex on CD -  Access® version

The 560,000 + line item Wrindex in Microsoft Access ® database format. You must have Microsoft Access® database version 7 or later, and Microsoft Windows  95® or later. The Access version is designed for printing in a landscape format on 8 1/2" x 14" (legal size) paper, enabling printing an entire item on a single line. This facilitates rapid analysis of lengthy printouts. There are six sorts of the main database, and the user can design additional custom queries, if desired. $ 39.95, including shipping. (First Class Mail)


The Early San Francisco Newspaper Index 

The Early San Francisco Newspaper Index is a version of The Wrindex developed to run independently of Access®, and it can be used on any PC. This allows researchers who do not have Access® to benefit from the vast amount of data in The Wrindex. Very simple to install and operate, it features a single screen for searching and printing. Pulling from the same 560,000 line item database as The Wrindex, you can sort by name or society quickly and easily, and output the same listing information.  The ESFNI  also retains the database on the CD during operation, so the huge database does not take up space on your hard drive. $ 29.95, including shipping. (First Class Mail)


Researching is often like looking for the needle in a haystack. But when you use The Wrindex or the ESFNI, you already know where the “needle” is!

Over 150 “Needles” Found!

We ordered the Early San Francisco Newspaper Index because several people had contacted us looking for information on Irish ancestors in early SF. We were delighted when the very first search yielded over 150 listings for relatives of the researcher - and so was she!

Voluntarism Big Time: An Action Adventure Chronology Following the Arrivals in Early San Francisco of a Devout Young Painter and a Devout Young Blacksmith

By Thomas J. Wrin, 92 pages, softbound.   ©2004, ISBN 0-9771500-0-3

The Irish residents of early San Francisco established over 2000 societies to give themselves the strength in numbers to accomplish major objectives for the improvement of their lives. This book documents the roles of James R. Kelly and Michael J. Wrin in the organizing of many of those Irish societies and causes in early San Francisco. From 1855 to the early 1900s, these two men were truly voluntarism in action. Together, and separately, they organized hundreds of benevolent societies and actions.  This chronology of their actions is a unique record of the successful voluntarism movement on the West Coast in that era. The chronology was compiled using The Wrindex database, and is extensively footnoted with source data.  $ 24.95, including shipping. (Book Rate Mail)
