Im trying to trace my gggrandad. He emigrated to States between 1905 and 1910. 1910 census record for an Edward Harvey 1870, Brooklyn Ward 31, Kings New York. He was single.A lodger. Although some of the details are incorrect. Says he was born in USA. When infact he was born in Ireland. He listed he worked as a Waiter. He arrived back in Ireland in 1920/1921 and told the family he was working as a Waiter in New York. Im sure this is our Edward Joseph Harvey b1870 in Ireland.
We dont know what happened to him - he simply disappeared and it would be fantastic if we could solve the mystery. When people were entering the US between 1910 and 1930 would photos have been taken? If so, is it possible to get a copy? If he was employed as a waiter in a hotel in New York would he have needed a Social Security No. The last was heard of Edward Harvey was in he late 1920s when he wrote to his family in Ireland from the States.
ANY HELP ON THIS MATTER WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!!!
