Definitely more info is needed on this one. There are so many Michael Burkes from Ireland in New York City. If you can't tell us when he was born at least give us the name of the cousin who arrived in 1903, It might help us to find Michael.

Hello Geraldine - but WHEN and WHERE in Ireland was he born? There are far too many there so it needs to be narrowed down - I gave up after counting 76 arrivals for that name in the timescale. (I guess the name is the Irish equivalent of John Smith).

Was he married? If so, before or after emigration? Did he have children? Again, before or after? What was his occupation?

Who was the cousin he was meeting? If Michael's mentioned on the immigration record then we might get an address.
