Calling All Relatives of Cornelius J Harte!

Friday, May 14th, 2010 at 5:29 pm . By Dr Joy .

Here is a letter I recently got, and I want to do what I can to help.

“Dear Dr Joy

I have never heard your radio show as I live in Ireland so I do not know if you will be able to help me or not. My name is Frances McGlynn and I live in Cork, Ireland. I am at present researching my family tree – on my mother’s side and her name was Harte. The Harte family came from Castletownkenna Co. Cork.My great-great grandfather was Jeremiah Harte who was born on 28th May 1863 and I believe he had a brother who would have been the father of Cornelius J Harte, who was Chief of Police of Teaneck until he retired in 1966. I understand that he had one son and two daughters and in 1953 he lived in 710 John Street, Teaneck, NJ.

 As I said above I have never heard your radio show and do not know if you have requests on it or not but I would really appreciate if at all possible you could perhaps through your show make a request for any of Cornelius’ relatives to contact you and then in turn ask them to e-mail me at

Dr Joy, your help in this matter would be very much appreciated.

 Every good wish,

 Frances McGlynn”
