My grandfather Michael Burns was born on June 29, 1885 in Knock, County Carlow. He came to the United States, settled in NY and was naturalized on March 16, 1913 in Sothern District Court, NY.
His father's name was Michael Byrne and mother was Maria (no maiden name yet!) My grandfather and his brother changed their spelling to Burns while the family was in reality Byrne.
His brothers and sisters were:
Martin Burns - born 1874 died March 28 1928 New York Patrick Byrne- born 1876 Knockmulgurry, Carlow died 6/9/37 in Ireland John J. Byrns- born 1877 Knockmulgurry, Carlow died 1944 in Bronx, NY Hannah Byrne- born 1880, died 1957 in Drummond St. Mullins, Carlow Catherine Byrne- born 1881, died 1936 in Chicago married Larry Fogarty Minnie Byrne- born 1900 in Knock, Ballymurphy, Carlow died 1985 married R.Furlong Jeremiah Byrne-married Elizabeth Bridget Brigid Byrne- married Michael Fogarty, died in Ireland Annie Byrne ?

I have just started researching and I'm not sure how to go about finding more information on my ancestors but I'm working at it!!
