The Church in the 1880's picture of Enniskillen is St McCartin's Church of Ireland Cathedral. I wish I had a pound for every time I walked past it on my way to Portora School in the 1940s!

Fantastic site, have been researching my family tree both sides for couple of years now. My grandfather came from England and have gone back to my gggrandfather but could never find much on my mother's side who are from Randalstown/Larne, but through the 1911 census have now learnt my Grandmother's christain name so I have a something now to go on. Couldn't find my Grandfather or Grandmother anywhere on census even though on the Ulster Convenant have found Grandmother maybe the census have left out Cosgrave Street, Belfast! Looking for Poole and Nichol/Nicholl

My grandfather, John Musgrave, came to America in 1899. He was born in 1876 and was from Carrickfergus. We visited my Uncle William Musgrave in 1966. I am hoping to find information about my grandfather's family; father - John Musgrave and mother - Elizabeth Logan Musgrave and any descendants. My mother's name was Catherine.

just heard about your web page from a friend at work Kathleen mcCormick. I think my great grandmothers maiden name may have been Catherine Wylie?? My great grandfather was Henry Hughes from Glasgow born 1864. They lived in Belfast, have came to a dead end at the moment hopefully your records may help.

Just been told about your site - Brilliant!!!!! smile I have been able to find my Great Grandfather John Bucknell Cooper, on the pages I was told to look for 1907/1910: even better ALSO in the Belfast/Ulster 1880...... Just wonderful, as his time in Belfast had been so elusive to trace up to now. He was Manager for the Belfast Central in the 1880's; but returned to Belfast as I have a postcard dated 1907 from Ann St, when he would have been about 69 yrs old? You have really boosted my research, many thanks......

love logging on to your site. I found my grandfather on the 1911 census and discovered he had another brother, and also were they lived. The fact that he was born in belfast and not monaghan hopefully means that I can trace his birth.
keep up the good work Mary.

Am looking for information regarding James Smith b. about 1851/52 Ballyvenny, Cookstown, married Annie Ferguson at the Registry Office, Cookstown on 15.12.1874. Annie was born on 13.7.1855 Liscausy, Cookstown, Cty Tyrone. James also had a brother called Samuel.
James parents were supposedly John Smith or a Samuel Smith and a Jane Porter.
Annie's parents were William Hughie Smith and Matilda Grant or Harkness.

Further to my earlier message. This site is just brilliant.

I had the names of two individuals, one of whom was my Great Grandmother and the other I believed to be her brother. I had his parents names, but not hers, so I could not be sure that they were siblings.

By looking at the 1877 Directory, I found a person with the same name as the father of the person I believed to be my Great Grandmother's brother.

The address was the same as recorded on my Great Grandmother's Marriage Certificate when she got married in the same year, 1877. (Some of the Certificate was destroyed so it was not showing her parents names).

So I now know the name of my Great Great Grandfather and have confirmed that my Great Grandmother did have at least the one sibling.

As I said, this site is brilliant.

Hi Mary
I have just dipped my toe so far, but this looks like a superb site.
I am searching for any connections with DOLANS in particular
Michael Dolan, carpenter, son of Patrick Dolan, weaver, and Mary Dolan (Flynn). His wife Mary Dolan (Neill from Scotland) gave birth to his 5th child in Craig Street, Belfast in 1876. I have the birth certificate verifying this, the birth was registered three weeks later by his wife.
However I am finding it extremely difficult to find much more. Michael (father) had his address given as England.
So why was his young family in Belfast? If these names ring any bells I would love to hear from you.
Viv Rathbone (nee Morton, but should have been Dolan, my Dad changed his name!!!)

I am researching my paternal family tree. My family are Jamison's from Ardihannon, Parish of Billy, Bushmills. My Great Grandfather was William McDowell Jamison. He married an Annie Huer [Hewer]. They had 4 children, Oswald, William, Annie & Freddie [my Grandfather]. Oswald died at Dulisk on 10/11th November 1912 at age 17. Annie died at 22 and Willie at age 37! They attended the School at the Giants Causeway, now a Museum. Any stories, photographs etc., would mean the world to me.

I love the old photographs on this site, they are amazing and in very good condition.

Wonderful info on 1911 census pages, I have passed details of site to relatives across the world. Will other counties be added to the census pages?? Also I am trying to locate a memorial to Rifleman John (Jack)Walsh, killed 2nd July 1916 at Somme. He was from Co. Cavan but enlisted in Co.Down and was attached to 13th Bn. Royal Irish Rifles.Possibly in army before ww1???? He was about 35 yrs of age and a widower with 1 daughter. There is supposed to be a memorial plaque in a Church of Ireland Church in Co. Cavan, possibly Cloverhill area, which I would like to find. His parents were Thomas and Margaret Walsh of Farnham Co. Cavan.

My mother's family emigrated to Canada in 1912, from Belfast (Father: William Robert Hicks). I'm trying to trace a family portrait of a gentleman of which I have no information, but is possibly of my great-grandfather. Photographer's name is believed to be Hix.

This site has my grandfather's address, and ties him to the Belfast cotton thread business, which was a family business.

The information on this site is incredible, and I'm lucky to have found it.

Wonderful site! Definitely found one of my Great Grandparents, William McCORMICK, in the 1907 Index in Norfolk Drive off Glen Road at Iowa Villa.

I saw this property, which has 'Iowa Villa' above the door, on a visit to Belfast some years ago. The index confirms what I had been told.

Can't wait for the second half of Cavendish Street for 1910 to appear on this site, as I know William McCORMICK also lived there.

Have also have found my Grandfather in 1907 Index at 6 Dysart Street, which is consistent with birthplace in that year of his son (my uncle).

I'm also looking for CAMBRIDGE (from the Loney Area), MOORE and FENTON plus my Grandparents in Divis Street.

Thanks for the time and effort you have put into this. It is a marvelous resource.

Best wishes.
