is it possible to know what it says on michael burke passenger list in 1884 to new york


Geraldine Report 13 May 2012 08:44

does it mention a town or city where he lived

Marie celeste

any idea what town land he came from in ireland on the passanger list .

Geraldine, I've yet to find a shipping entry that I can definitely say is him.

A better bet might be to find his mother and two siblings - it looks as though they would have arrived together and presumably they would all have been from the same place. Will look up when I have time.

You're welcome.

EDIT: You can browse images of New York arrivals on FamilySearch

Hello Geraldine, where did you get that info? I'm not finding their arrival in New York.

As you can see at the above URL, in addition to the US federal census, there are also some state censuses online.

Here's MC's NY 1905 Burkes, and, I think, Hannah:
[423 10th Ave]
[142 W 80th Ave]

US 1910 - magnify 4 clicks, then save image:

Some of the headers are quite faint - for details, see the blanks at:
