Burkes from Ireland (probably Galway)

Ireland Reaching Out's picture

Our family is definitely from Ireland, and supposedly from Galway (My maiden name was Burke).

On my grandfather's death certificate, it is stated he was born in Ireland, but I'm fairly sure he wasn't. Possibly his father was.

Is there any way to learn anything?

We live in the US now, and our older relatives have all passed away. Seems like a pretty cold trail.

Re Burkes from Ireland (probably Galway)

Anne,

You need to give names and dates and any information that you have, so that someone may be able to help you. It is possible to find information depending on what you know. Also are you a beginner, intermediate or advance researcher?

I have Burkes in my ancestry also, from North Clare and Galway, going back to the 1700s.  I am willing to help you, but Burke is a really common name.

Can you check my specific information on the tail end of Martin Burke.  Is there a connection to some of your information as noted above?

I am interested in your

I am interested in your responses, as I have Burkes from Galway City also. John Burke (1804-1864) lived in Galway on Williams Street. His children emigrated. I may also connect to Burkes in Parkmore. I am especially interested in learning more about Burkes from Galway City, and Burkes who were pub owners or brewers.

Anne M. and Anne W., I would love to hear more about your Burkes. Ralph, how do we see the information about Martin Burke that you mention? Martin is a name in my Burke family.

If you search for Martin in Co Clare then read down the dialogue and you should fine what you are looking for.  If you need further info just write back.

There was a Nicholas Burke in Galway City in the mid-1800s. What time frame and location was your Nicholas from?
