Grimshaw Articles from the New York Times, 1851 to 1980

(Note: Webpage in preparation)

The New York Times website includes a search function for back issues for the period 1851 to 1980. A search for “Grimshaw” yielded 822 results, which are included on this webpage, along with 11 additional “hits” for other spellings of Grimshaw. The order of the results appears to be somewhat random, with a possible bias to decreasing relevance of the article to the search term. The New York Times website is at:

www.nytimes.com

The articles comprise a vast resource for information on Grimshaw immigrants and their descendants in America as well as other Grimshaws throughout the world. Copies of the articles can be obtained in PDF format for an individual fee or for a reasonable “TimesSelect” monthly charge. Additions are being made to this webpage as the articles are explored on the Times website.

General Observations

Robert Grimshaw wrote many letters to the Times; needs a webpage corollary to his

John Grimshaw, bankruptcy judge, had a lot articles. Needs his own webpage corollary to the Paterson, NJ Grimshaw webpage
