Grand Central Terminal In New York City Turns 100
Officially opened February 2, 1913. The terminal and the surrounding neighborhood thrived -- by 1947, 65 million people a year were traveling through the building. The latter half of the 20th century, rail travel declined sharply, and Grand Central Terminal fell into disrepair, threatened several times with demolition. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority was able to undertake a huge restoration in the 1990s, and Grand Central remains a New York City icon today, 100 years after it first opened.

GEN-OBIT. If you are searching for descendants of a particular family group this is the exchange group you want. It's easy (and quite addictive!) to do an index of your local paper, and you then have access to newspaper obituaries from across the world. If you become a contributor, you can request information look-up for a listed obituary. It's like receiving numerous newspapers a day to shuffle through the obituaries. You can also become a subscriber without contributing, but you don't get the frills. If you want to become a contributor, send a message stating so or asking for more information to email@example.com. To subscribe send the following to firstname.lastname@example.org: subscribe
