The link Reggie found is for this, but there are further links from this to Ireland births as well, so not sure if it is related as Martin was 2 months old on the 1911 census this one would only be a week old:

Last Residence: 02127 Boston, Suffolk, Massachusetts, United States of America
Born: 26 Mar 1911
Died: Aug 1977
State (Year) SSN issued: New York (Before 1951)

Ancestry links Martin's birth to may, of course, be a 'red herring'

Any idea of birth years for any of them?

Were they of Irish origin?

How are you connected?


Mary Report 1 Dec 2012 23:24

Thanks for suggestions, as you can probably tell I am not very experienced in this kind of reseach, and am obviously quite niave. I will follow suggestions and see what I can find.



+++DetEcTive+++ Report 1 Dec 2012 11:48

Could you give some years of birth please? You may be to identify them on especially if you can find a marriage between Mr Joyce and Mary. That would give her maiden name which you can cross reference for the births.

Middle initials would help, to be found on the birth index.

Have you searched trees to see if anyone has them listed??


brummiejan Report 1 Dec 2012 11:47

Mary, 2 things!
Firstly check for matches with other members by using 'search all trees' - found in search box above.
Secondly, specify what you mean by 'any information'.


Mary Report 1 Dec 2012 11:43

I am looking for information/relatives of the Joyce family who lived at Willington Quay, Newcastle until approximately 1950.

Mother was Mary, daughters Catherine and Margaret, sons Thomas, Patrick, Martin, John and maybe others.
