Puerto Rico Relief Collection by Lin-Manuel – One of the things that struck me as I looked at this – the lyrics to Lin-Manuel Miranda’s lyrics to “Almost Like Praying” (love the “West Side Story” inspiration!) is how many of these town’s records I’ve had cause to delve into. Occasionally for a celeb’s roots – like those of LMM himself – but far more often for military heroes who sacrificed their lives for America in WWII, Korea, etc.
Reclaim The Records is proud to announce the free public availability of the NEW JERSEY MARRIAGE INDEX, 1901-2016 – In case you haven’t heard, exciting news for those with NJ roots! I’ll be sharing my own experience shortly.
