Frequently I respond to questions on Mailing Lists. I often spend a few hours researching for subscriber's ancestors. I thought it might be helpful to other descendants and researchers to see what I've found, so am posting bits of the original question, and my research into the family genealogy on Olive Tree Genealogy

The question below on the Fitzsimmons family was asked on a popular mailing list. I took several hours to research. I found some interesting facts about the family but Dan of Pennsylvania who asked the original question never responded to my findings. So, here' s hoping another descendant or two will find my research helpful.

QUESTION ASKED ON MAILING LIST FEBRUARY 2007

I am looking for the birth record and ancestors of: Margaret FITZSIMMONS, believed to have been born in London, Middlesex, Ontario, Canada ca 1847. Her father FITZSIMMONS was born ca 1913 in Ireland.(First name unknown) Her mother was Harriet Eliza BARNES was born 1818 on the Isle of Wight, England. She emigrated to the US sometime before 1864, where she married Michael DOUGHERTY in Manhattan, New York, US, 1864.

MY ANSWER

Marg has already found the family's arrival in New Yorkon the ship Gideon arriving Mar 22, 1848 . The family group was Thomas Fitzsimmons 33, Harriet Fitzsimmons 29, Harriet Fitzsimmons 7, and Margaret Fitzsimmons 2

I had a look in the census records for USA for 1850, and thefamily is there in New York specifically New York Ward 1Western Division.

The family consist of Thomas FITZSIMMONS, 43 born Ireland; Harriet FITZSIMMONS, 31 bornEngland; Harriet FITZSIMMONS 10 born England and Margaret FITZSIMMONS 5 born New York.

You might want to view the image for yourself, and searchother census years. Right now Ancestry is having a price cutwith over 30% off membership so that might be an option youwant. Or you could order the census on microfilm

See AllCensusRecords for help with census andfor a link to the ancestry specials.

I also found the family in the 1860 census forNew York Ward 1 District 1, New York, New York. LittleHarriet is now missing and Thomas FITZSIMMONS age 10 has joined thefamily.
