Found my Great Grandfather as coastguard in Whiteabbey and confirmed in the nationalarchives.ie search. This is a great cross reference. More digging required now as I note that earlier children were born in Derry. Thanks for a really useful service.

Thank you so much for all your hard work. I have managed to locate the street address where my Great Grandfather lived in Belfast in 1877. He must have moved to the UK between 1878 - 1880. He shows up in the UK Census for 1881. I was born in Manchester,England. smile Amazing.

This is fascinating stuff and I am thrilled to find it. However, I am confused. I have the 1901 and 1911 census returns but the street numbers don't seem to correspond with the street records here and some names simply aren't there.
Has anyone else experienced this?

My grandfather fought in Burma with the 8th HAA, you have him in a picture as Jimmy Strachin on an AA gun but he was John Stranaghan from 57 Joseph St. He didn't talk much about the war and had only two photographs, one of the gun he named after my mother (Myrtle) and the other of group photo of the 22nd battery.

I've learned a lot from this site about the achievements of the 8th HAA and have something to pass on to my grandchildren.

Keep up this good work.

I would like to know how to find out about my grandfather, who was in the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers. I heard him talking about the Boer war, Alexandria, the Khyber Pass, when I was young. I have a photo of him in a sergeant's uniform with my Granny and my Mother as a young girl. I have a notion that he might have enlisted twice. He also would seem to have had some connection with the 87th Royal Irish Fusiliers, as I have a Christmas Card from 'somewhere in France' from Major Ivan Dullaghan (I am not sure of the writing) to Lt. Col. Madden & officers 4th Royal Irish ????. On the other page is a photo of George R. I (Capital letter I not figure 1) Colonel-in-chief of the 87th Royal Irish Fusiliers.

Loved reading my granda D J Bailie's diary - my daddy is "wee curly top." He looks a lot like my daddy. I can see where the writers in our family come from, such a descriptive account of war from a man desperately missing the family he loved. He died the year after I was born, I'm glad we got to meet. x

This site is just great.. What would cause an entire family such as Weekly on the 1901 census to change their name to Wicklow on the 1911 census. I am having a tough time tracking my family tree.

Informative site. Still trying to finds clues to my ancestor James T. Denison who apparently was born in 1792 and left Belfast in 1807 for Boston and settled in W. Virginia. Our family line is supposedly related to the Hertfordshire Denisons who served as deputy governor(s) in Cork, Ireland and/or Dublin during the 1600s. Help!

Your site is marveleous, the first person was Adair, Henry Drummond who I was looking for, I was actually looking for his father.
When someone is not on the 1901 or 1911 census but does not appear to be dead where would I look.
Are there death records. Dr Thomas McC Adair and his wife Eliza jane.
