my 2 aunts were farmed out to Mary Hutchinson (poss. a church boarding school) in Banbridge. they appear on the 1911 census living with 4 other girl boarders.aged 8 years old. but where did they go when they left Ma Hutchinson ? they didn't return to the family home in Bangor as their mother had died in 1905 and their father Eddie Burns couldn't cope.
Passenger sailing lists finds them crossing to America in 1923. but the trail runs cold as to where they settled. their elder sister Eleanor had also emigrated and was living in Yonkers. but no sign of the girls in N.Y.
any suggestions/help in solving the mystery would be very much appreciated. with thanks sarah
