Hi all,

I am hoping that someone can help me I am looking for more details of these two people as they were cousins of my great aunt.

GARDNER, WILLIAM   16 Aug 1896   Nov 1975   79   04106 (South Portland, Cumberland, ME)
(none specified)   Maine

GARDINER, GEORGE   28 Apr 1895   Apr 1980   84-85   11210 (Brooklyn, Kings, NY)
11375 (Forest Hills, Queens, NY)

I would be very grateful of any help with this as I know nothing about them except that there mother was possibly Anna McKernan and possibly related.

Thanks for all your help

Kieran

Hi Sandra,

Thanks for all your help.  Is it possible to get Mary McKernans passport application or William and Anna's marriage details.

Thanks for all your help

Sorry, I haven't come across either of those so far.

You could try http://www.italiangen.org/VRECLIST.stm for the marriage - with variations on the surnames.

Howard Gardiner. Born 30th August 1896 and died November 1978
Last Residence -   11238  Brooklyn, Kings, New York,
and Last Benefit -   11210  Brooklyn, Kings, New York,
SSN was issued in New York (Before 1951)

Hi Sandra,

I have had a check for the marriage but nothing seems to come up.  Are you able to find any passport applications for any of them such as Mary or William to see if I am able to confirm that this is my great aunt Mary. 

Thanks for all your help as always it is very much appreciated

Kieran

PS Can you find them travelling on a boat from Ireland or Scotland to America?

No sorry - no passport applications.I don't think passports were required for entry into the USA until about  World War I. - someone will correct if that is wrong.

The history of the United States Passport

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_passport

William Gardiner's immigration date was not very clear and I saw nothing to positively identify him or Mary in 1896.
