Family research

Primarily searching James Alexander King born 1900 117 Nelson St. Next record in Belfast Workhouse 1911, then sent as Home Child to Canada 1911. Parents, James Alexander King, carpenter, born 1869, Antrim. His father James King between 1834-6 Antrim, death abt 1911 138 Earl St (same address as wife Mary Anne Douglass 1910).
Any information of JAK, 1869 or JK born 1834-6 strongly appreciated.
Secondarily JAK, born 1900, mother was Emily Ellen Mageean born 1874 Downpatrick, her mother Mary Jane Boyd was born Newry, father John Mageean was born Downpatrick. MJBoyd Mageeean and Emily once lived at 20 Trafalgar St.
I have records of JAK and EEM, birth JAK, 1900 and other census records 1901, etc.
JAK was my grandfather who emigrated to Quebec Canada.
My GGF and 2nd GGF worked as shipwrights, shipsmith or carpenters. EEM workers as flax-spreader.
I have hit a "brick wall" with my GGF, 2nd GGF and EEM.
Thanks in advance
