John HARKIN (S) (Donegal)
« on: Friday 12 November 10 22:32 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for infomation on Micheal or John Harkin, i believe they both entered America via Canada.
Michael entered Canada 24/8/1923 one of them was killed not to sure which side of the boarder riding the trains i think it was America.
My uncle in Derry came across one of the sons during WW2 in Derry i think he was in the US Navy.
One of them came over in the fifties or (sixties) with there son. I think they lived around the East coast New York area

Do you have a date of birth for either of them?

Michael's date of birth is shown as 25th March 1895, born Derry, on the registration card. There is at least one possible match on the 1901 & 1911 censuses but no sign of a brother John.

www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1901/Londonderry/No__4_Urban__West_Ward/Nelson_Street/1537562/

www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Londonderry/Londonderry_Urban__4_/Wellington_Street/604303/

Not sure therefore if itís the correct family.

That's why I asked for the dates of birth - I'm not sure if the registration card is for the right guy (and it will probably be removed by the copyright editors anyway.)  Also, Annie, if you have the name of the ship he came over on, that might help.  I couldn't find him on a passenger list for the date you give, and a manifest might say where his final destination was.
