Re: [IrelandOldNews] Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland/Burke, M.J., c. 1830-1846
- Hi Maureen,
The answer to your question below is, "No." I've never been to New York.
Are you Carol Burke originally from Queens NY, and with two sisters, Maureen
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
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.
