look up request; immigration into Boston USA 1948
« on: Thursday 21 February 13 12:47 GMT (UK) »
Would anyone be able to look up the immigration records for me for Diane De Ganay, age about 28, I think came to the USA via Boston 1948 from either France or England.
I would  like to know if anyone travelled with her, also looking for Eleanor Hill Irving coming in at the same time from either England or France could have been travelling either as her companion or as nurse.

Thank you for help

Thank you for this, I had hoped Eleanor had accomapined her. I have a missing 14 years 1940 to 1954, I can only presume she went back to France after the war and was a nanny for other family members.

Thank you for all your help

Now this is really interesting, I had found the later shipping dates for Eleanor but not the 1948. I wonder what Diane was doing in USA in 1947? I am pretty sure that Dianes birth name was de Ganay as it ties up with the records I have found in France, I wonder if her previous marriage was to an American or a Frenchman?

Unfortunately in europe the post war records are such a mess, or were destroyed.

Thank you for this, I have written to Dianes son so who knows I may be able to fill in some gaps.

Thank you
