I am researching my ansestors from Ireland to New York. Bernard McKenna married Ellen Kelly. John Joseph McKenna, and John James McKenna. Families also in this line Carty, Fitzpatrick, Dodge, any one else researching anyone here? I have the 1870 & 1888 directories for NYC if any one needs information off them, E-mail me. The directories list residents address in the city and sometimes their trade. I will be making a trip back to NYC to research McKenna birth. marriage and death certificates, anyone interested in obtaining information from the Archives in NYC. E-mail me
Anyone researching the McKenna Family that arrived in New York aboard the SS Elsinora on May 1, 1847? I am researching my Grandparents and beleive this is the ship they arrived on. Thanks in advance, steve

Then let's look at the Savings Emigrant Bank records in NYC for a John b abt 1807: There is a Bernard,married to a Carolyn, same age range,from Co Monaghan.A couple of John's - none match with the 1847 arrival.
Where does the reference to Kerry come from?Do you have his obit?Any McKenna immigrant sibs acting as godparents out in SF or in NY?Who were the witnesses to the SF marriage?(Every sibling is another papertrail .... to a townland).
Okay Bernard reports arriving between 1841-1843!!That means he came with his family!!!!
Okay, no sibling witnesses - so did Bernard go out to CA by himself from the east coast?
