burke family fitchburg mass
« on: Wednesday 03 January 18 22:00 GMT (UK) »
would it be possible for some kind Roots Chat collague to have a look and see if they can find the marriage of a member of Burke family from Fitchburg Mass.? Their father was named Michael Burke and mother named Nora Welsh. I know that two of the family namely Bernard age 26 (born 1914) and Paul born 1915 are still residing at home with their father Michael and mother Nora in the 1940 census for Fitchburg. The other members of family who will possibly have marriage record if found by a search will be Mary margaret (B) 1905 possible marriage 1919 1930/George Michael (B) 1907 possible Marriage 1919-1930. John E (B) 1911 possible Marriage 1930/40. The remaining family members of Michael Burke & Nora Welsh being Bernard & Paul with the stated details. Thanks for any help. much appreciated. Regards
