Hi Leagan
Welcome!!

Are you able to be more specific about what you would like to find?

Census records, shipping records or ??

First names, ages, and places you expect to find your families would also be helpful.

Seek info on a John Jenkins (b) anytime from 1797 to 1817, and wife Mary Salmon Dwyer Jenkins (b between 1804 and 1816.  She prob. (m) to a Dwyer first. All (b) Ire. and family says County Cork.  Kids: John (Maybe actually son of Dwyer but went by Jenkins) (b) 1832 to 1837, Ralph (b) 1838 to 1842, Charles (b) 1839/40 or thereabouts, Eliza (b) 1842/43.  Other kids (b) in U.S. were Mary 1850/51 and William 1854/55 who died young we think.  Need ANY and ALL info on these people as have Nothing on them before they show up in Chateaugay, Franklin County, New York, U.S.A. in 1850 census.  May have gone to Canada first but haven't found any info there or on Ships Lists yet.  Their dau. Mary later (m) as a Catholic but father or  brother John was witness to Father John's great-grand dau. bapt. in Church of England in Canada later so religon unsure.  Father John (d) July 24, 1893 says age 95, Mother Mary (d) 1881 says age 76.  Ages changed a lot so unsure of birth years.  Mother and Father both died area of Malone/Chateaugay, N.Y..  Any help appreciated as I have found research in Ire. is very hard, records online are few.  Thank you. Leagen in Ct. U.S.A..   God Bless Our Troops and bring them All home safe and Soon!
