Geraldine, I just saw your posting. Since you live in Brooklyn, I would
recommend going to the Brooklyn Public Library or the New York Public
Library to check whether they have a copy of the Troy
City directory for the years you need. You might also get in touch with the
Troy Public Library to ask their Reference Librarian to help you. I have
used their copies of the city directory to check on my own family's
residences. If you know where your grandfather lived, I could tell you in
which parish he had lived.
As a retired Senior Librarian in the New York State Library who worked many
years with their genealogical resources, I most heartily recommend you
contact them to help, also. Good luck.

gr. grandfather was an iron moulder and I imagine as Irish immigrants
they would have been living in a poor part of town.
What churches should I start again with.
