Looking for possible relatives across the Atlantic

The information I currently have is my Great Grandmother was born in Belfast, her name was Margaret Archer. She immigrated to the US in the early 1900's. Unfortunately she passed away before I was born so I couldn't ask her if she had any living relative back in Belfast or the surrounding area's. My Great Grandfather, from what I've been told, was born in the County of Thomas. His name was Thomas Steele. He also immigrated to the US in the early 1900's. Most records I've found point to the year 1905 for his signing in Ellis Island but I'm not 100% sure. Again he passed away before I was born so I could not find out if he had any relatives either.
I'm extremely interested to find out if I have existing family in either Ireland or possibly Scotland or the UK. If anyone is out there that might of heard stories pertaining to family members of these names and locations I would greatly appreciate any information. Only two of their 7 children are still living, one being my grandmother. Please feel free to email me directly if you would rather not respond on a public forum.
Look forward to hearing from you!
Thanks!
