You are making an inquiry about Massachusett's does this family have any connection to Cork Ireland? if not you should post on a US message board by State.

I should of read the memorial first.

Michael Burke born 21 Sept 1869 #589 Drimoleague, Cork

Fa: Timothy Burke Mo: Mary Hayes LDS FHL Film #101194

I tried to find siblings but he was the only one on an old CD set of Civil Registrations from 1864-1875

You can try www.familysearch.org for children born after 1875, children born before 1864 would be parish records.

You can apply for a copy of a birth certificate from the
General Registry Office: www.groireland.ie (#589 Drimoleague)and you have both parents names so they will do
a bit of research as well and maybe come up with siblings
after 1864. The Euro exchange rate for the US is pretty low at the moment so a good time if you want get a copy.


Some Cork church records are on the website:
www.irishgenalogy.ie

The genealogy of Cork is divided into two 1/2's either
South West or North East.

The North East records are located on an Irish History Foundation website. However, usually these genealogy records only go to 1900, only a few later. You should be able to find the whole family as you have both names of the parents, so don't need any more information for a good search. They will have Parish records as Civil Registrations so if born after 1864 you will get 2 per person.

www.familysearch.org has civil registrations from 1864 bmd
to about 1950.

I did see a 17 year old Timothy from Drinagh in the 1901
Census, so probably a son's children. There were 18 Timothy
Burke's but none in the age range of 70 in that area. The closest was a 66 year old widower.

www.askaboutireland.ie (Griffith Valuation 1853)
There are 23 Timothy's (not sure if this is the father or possibly grandfather as usually a man was married before
occupying land.

Timothy Burke, Parish of Drinagh (Part of) Townland of Drinagh W. Poor Law Union Dunmanway, tenant of Denis Regan

Hi Annette,

THANKS.

You may find the CENSUS part (for Ireland) of my website of use for DED and Townland comparisons between 1901 and 1911 Census.

Cheers
