Can You Help?

Because of certain laws, I can only access New York City records up to 1910 for birth and the early 1930s for marriages and deaths. Consequently, I can only track the children of Joseph Walsh and Maggie Langan so far. Complicating this problem is the fact that Walsh was a very common name in the city.
