      Hello,

      I'm searching the roots of my g-grandfather, Michael J. Burke. He
      was born in Dublin circa 1810-1815. I have an article from the
      Johnson County, KS librarian that states, M. J. relocated to Iowa in
      1848, and then to Kansas in 1858. The article doesn't say what city
      in Dublin, Ireland M.J. was born, but it doesn't list the county
      either, so I'm assuming it's Dublin City, County of Dublin. I'm not
      sure when he came to America. And I'm not sure of the port of
      entry.

      The article also stated that M.J. was a graduate of Trinity College
      in the field of Civil Engineering. He was employed in Iowa and
      Kansas as a Government Surveyor. He was one of several surveyors
      who worked on the plans for the Sante Fe Railroad.

      My question is this: Can I search Trinity College, Dublin for the
      records of his graduation? Is there a searchable website online for
      early graduates of this college? I'm not sure of the year of his
      birth, therefore, I not sure when he graduated.

      What I'm trying to do is locate the names of his parents, and to
      find out if they came to America with him. I'm hoping his college
      records will give the names of his parents. Or I'm hoping to find
      an article in a Catholic journal or local newspaper for the
      timeframe. Did Trinity College have their own newspaper c. 1830-
      1846? It's my understanding that Trinity College was basically
      established as a Protestant school, but I could be wrong.

      Thank you for any sugggestion you may have. And I really enjoy
      reading through the articles, especially the style of writing. I
      find it enchanting.
