Any ideas on how to track the following missing relative would be appreciated. This is my first veture into American records.
I am currently researching my fathers family from Rathkeale, Limerick, Ireland and would appreciate any input anyone may have regarding this name or any associated names to help build a fuller picture. Family names through marriage are Kiely/Sullivan/Markham/Madigan/Harrington. A GGUncle, Daniel Scanlan, born 1886 in Rathkeale, emigrated to New York, we believe with, or to meet, his older brother Bartholomew probably in the early part of the 1900`s. He married whilst in America a Harrington who was also from Rathkeale we believe. My father remembers being told he had died in a heatwave in New York in the early 30`s if not 1930 itself. He had a son (we believe Daniel)who was in the army in WW2 and arrived in Northern Ireland before being posted to Germany during the war. At this point we know nothing about Batholomew born approx 1867. We are currently back to 1837 and stuck at present. We have quite a few gaps with family that possibly went to America or Australia. If you have any useful info reply here or email me privately on firstname.lastname@example.org
