New York City’s Department of Correction has started a free online database of New York City’s Potter’s Field on Hart Island. The database currently includes 65,000 names, mostly of those buried after 1977, of the more than one million people buried there.  More names will be added to the database as they become available.  To see the database, visit: http://www.nyc.gov/html/doc/html/hart_island/hart_island.shtml
