I am looking for a Jules / Julian Duhamel born in Belgium in 1870 and immigrated to the States in 1906.  On the ship he listed his destination as Kansas City (Armourdale) but few records after that are found.

Richard, welcome to G2G.

I assume your Jules Duhamel is the one in line No. 6 in the following list:

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3Q9M-C9PT-XX4P?i=343&cc=1368704

This Jules Duhamel was 35  on 1906 (b. ab. 1871), married, his last residence was in Ingelmunster, Belgium.


The Jules Duhamel in Terry's answer is listed with his two older sons George and Jules in the following list (Group XIII; Nos. 13, 14 and 15):

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QSQ-G9LW-G943-N?i=257&cc=2299396

This Jules Duhamel was 43 on 1913, so he was born about 1870, very close to your Jules.

His wife Julia and their younger children are listed here (Right hand side page. Group 22; Nos. 19 to 25):

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:3QSQ-G9LW-G9W5-N?i=1006&cc=2299396

The "Destination" of the whole family was Christopher, IL. Jules Duhamel died there on 1933. He was born in Marles les Mines, France according to the death record.

There is a great chance that both Jules are the same person. Ingelmunster is just 91.3 km from Marles les Mines according to this map:

Hope this information helps in your search.
