Currently tracing my family tree - quite straight forward until about 1840, then things become rather difficult. Anyone that can shed a little light on tracing people further back than that - please speak up!
Great web site - will send some information regarding two of my Great Uncles who fought in WW1.

Hi

Re: McCartney Family Tree

Very interesting site.

This is a message for User 474.

My name is Carmel McCartney.
I am a native of Gortnaghey, Dungiven, County Derry.
There was a post on a Gortnaghey Website stating that your Grandfather, Henry was born in 1894 in Gortnaghey, Dungiven.
Since Gortnaghey is only a wee hamlet, I feel that your Grandfather must be related to my Grandfather, Michael McCartney, whose Father was Charles McCartney.
Any information you can give me would be very much appreciated. Many thanks. Carmel

Hi there, was told about this site particularly the Biddy Taylor page. Biddy was my father's first cousin and there are pictures of Biddy's mother and my father's mother (my granny obviously!) swimming in Portrush harbour. Where did the information come from? I remember Mossy the horse very well, he lived to the great old age of 29 I think it was!

Have a suitcase belonging to my deceased father, A J Andews 5121773. He was known as Jimmy rather than Arthur.
Searched for his regiment and found this wonderful website.
Used his release certificate as a starting point. There are lots of photographs from his India and Burma spell of duty.
How do I find out about any medals he may have had?
Any help would be much appreciated. A Happy New Year to you all and good look with your researching!

Delighted to find your website. I found reference to Samuel May on the Memorial in Garvagh. He was my husband's great Uncle who had moved to Canada in 1910. In 1918 he,with his wife and daughter, moved to Cedar Falls,Washington. I have been doing family research and have found that he died in 1985 at the age of 92. He was the youngest son of Robert May. My husband's grandfather,John, was the 6th of 9 children Robert and Ellen Sarah had and he moved to S.Rhodesia around the time of the 2nd Boer War.
We visited Ireland and Garvagh for the first time in Sept this year and saw the Memorial. My husband was delighted to visit the home of his forefathers. Has anyone any further information about the Mays of Garvagh/Bellury and the McCookes who seem to be related.

Does anyone know the name or whereabouts of J.C.K., the writer of the poem "Indian Twilight" on this site.
We met in a village called Comilla in India during WW II. He was in the Army and i was in the R.A.F.
I remember that we sat together whilst we refined his poem.
I still have a copy of it as it was then.
A memory of "ships that pass in the night", and it would be wonderful to make contact with him after all these years.

Your web site has been invaluable to me in finding my grandfathers family in Belfast and I really appreciate all your hard and enduring work. A labour of love. Thank You.

Would like to point out a slight information error in your WW1 Section under Fitzroy Presbyterian Church. Service and Sacrifice, Three Belfast Congregations. The great work done by Nigel Henderson list personal information on a solider named Samuel Hayes, Service # 10/14867. His PreWar Addresses have been identified as 5 Jerusalem (1901) and 23 Hatfield (1909). The 5 Jerusalem address was not the home of this solider Samuel Hayes but that of my grandfather, his sister and his father as shown in the 1901 Irish Census Records. Going by the second address, 23 Hatfield, in the 1911 Irish Census this Solider Samuel Hayes does appear at that address with his mother Agnes and stepfather Charles Collins. Taking a second look at the 1901 Irish Census, you will actually find Solider Samuel Hayes living with his mother (and same listing of brothers and sisters) at 169 Vernon St. Belfast.

This has been a fun little family research project for me today in thinking that my Grandfather had 2 half brothers and 2 half sisters that he never told us about. His father was actually widowed about 1882 and never remarried.

Excellent reading. Found my grandfather and great uncle on roll of honour, Henry and Joseph Hamilton,from Portstewart. They both fought at the Somme, my grandfather was approx. 21yrs. He was wounded twice and returned to The Front. Near the end of the war he was taken prisoner. They returned from the Great War and suffered ill health the rest of their lives due to gas at the front, the two of them died on the same day, my grandfather was 48 he had went on to be the station master at Magilligan station and father ten children! The youngest being 3 when he died.
