Website Review:

A review based on:

Description is a website dedicated to the history of Catholics in the United States. It features not only links to existing online resources in American Catholic history such as organizations, archives, and articles on people, places, and events in Catholic history, but also original content in the form of bibliographies and special features.

This site is an excellent resource for researchers in American Catholic history. As such, it contains links to secular sources as well as questionable Catholic sources. This does not detract from its usefulness, but it does require users to be cautious and discerning when following off-site links to further information.
