In Reply to: Can anyone trace me back? by James Heslin of 212

Social Security Death Index
Michael J Heslin b. 22 Feb 1934 d. 28 Sep 1998 in Green Valley Pima AZ SS#issued in NY

If this is your dad then if you order his SS application it will list his parents names and possible location of birth.

Here is the link to the SS-5 letter ordering the SS application:
http://ssdi.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/ssdi.cgi?letter=y&lastname=HESLIN&firstname=MICHAEL&ssn=084-26-7880&birth=22+Feb+1934&death=28+Sep+1998&middlename=J&namesiffix=

Once you find out his father's exact name I can check the census for you again to see if I can find him.

This might be your Regina Cooney:
1930 NY NY Manhattan
Cooney John head 30 married at 20 NY IRE IRE dock builder
Cooney Caroline wife 37 married at 18 NY NY NY
Cooney Regina dau 18 NY NY NY tel operator
Cooney Florence dau 17 NY NY NY cashier
Cooney John son 15 NY NY NY
Cooney Helen dau 13 NY NY NY
Cooney James son 8 NY NY NY
McCave Mary motherinlaw 74 married NY NY NY

There are 2 John Heslin's in Manhattan in 1930 census
John M Heslin b. 1893
John Heslin b. 1908

no John Heslin listed on SS Death index dying in 1948.

I hope this is helpful. This is not my family. Let me know if you have any questions.
