WHAT HAPPENED TO THE FORUM

These are the ashes of the now gone Forum, it is not all of the forum, I have 3 sections and even then there is a lot missing

eamped links are all inactive

external links can be copy and pasted into your browser and should work fine

remember THIS IS NOT AN ACTIVE FORUM ANYMORE

this information is what was left of the forum that was cached in Google, in most cases I do not have the peoples email addresses
but email me and ask anyway if you see someone post and you would like to contact them

FOR EX MEMBERS:-

if you are an ex member of the forum could you please email me with your user name so I can forward any replies to you
also - if you had a query outstanding, could you please email it to me and if you find that query here could you let me know so I can add the reply here also

Thank you !

 Mary you kindly did some searching on this chap back in March. If you remember he was the Jeweller in My Ladys Road who moved from 35 to 170 and married a relative Sarah M J Scott. Well it turns out that he was married before and was a "widower" in 1915. He married 1st wife in June 1896 and gave his address as 20 Gloucester Street. I looked at the 1901 SD in PRONI and it is shown vacant, I know he was at 35 My Ladys Road then and have him in the 1901 Census. In 1880 SD Gloucester St is a lodging house (Carlisle). His job at the time of the marriage was "baker". Would you please see when Gloucester Street changed from lodgings to vacant if you have the books between 1880 and 1901.
His 1st wife Mary Anne McQuade gave her address as 51 Chichester St which also turns out to be a boarding house in 1880 and the Chester Restaurant in 1901....her father is given as George McQuade - tailor but no sign of him in 1880/1901, would you please have a wee look around to see if he's about. 
very many thanks
Peter

Hi Pete, You're going great guns with your lot 

I don't have any directories between 1880 and 1907, sorry, May has 1901 but you've seen that already at Proni and if George McQuade is about 1907 or prior you'll find him on my site using the Google onsite search box., sorry I can't really help with this one Pete.

Mary

ps here's a list of the directories available

Great stuff Anthony,(and Mary) this gives me another bit for the "jigsaw". It started as a 100 piecer but is going to end up somthing a lot bigger!
I am thinking could the lodgings be above the Tailors shop? and he lives at Erin St and the Daughter above the business?

I was at the Ulster American Folk Park in 02. I was probably in the library too, but don't remember it as well as the park itself. It was very well put together and I'd recommend it even for non-Americans.

Hiya Mary,Just a note to say that King`s county and Queen`s county have been known as Laois and offaly since the Republic of Ireland started!
Also Londonderry is the city title but County Derry.

Hi Cos

Not to be picky here but... as the Slaters was written in 1846 they would still have been known and referred to as King's and Queen's Counties.

Mary... perhaps in the list you gave you could and Laios and Offaly in brackets.

and... officially... it is still Co. Londonderry...

Cheers Mary & Eddie,
Its a good idea to bracket the modern names of the counties.As regards Derry-stroke-Londonderry Gerry Anderson might have the best solution!

Would anyone out there have a photo of a Royal Irish Fusilier. Not wishing to narrow the field too much, the soldier should have a moustache. A group photo would also be good so that I could lift the head and shoulders out from the group. The identity is not important, in fact I would prefer no identity.
Fingers are X'ed
Thanks

slight problem, my camera is poo, well I'm poo at using it, Eddie is going to see if he can help me sort it out, it won't be the directories though, at least not the Belfast ones, hopefully if we (Eddie) that is, can sort out my camera, it will be the info at the front of the Derry and Antrim Year Books, its great, there is a section for each month, Jan thru Dec, in each book and it gives like a 'this date in history' which includes local details, I put a few in here
http://lookups.eamped.com/topic112.html

but the print is small and I'm not that good with the camera, I'm sure amongst the many options and twiddly things on my digcam, there will be settings that will hopefully let me photo these so you can transcribe them.

I was in an old graveyard today and it was a disgrace, a crypt was accessible, not by humans though and skulls were clearly visible through the bars and bones outside, my son was horrified that we treat our dead so disrespectfully, a handful of strong men could clean that graveyard in a couple of days, head stones had fallen, facedown and couldn't be read, some had fallen and were smashed, others leaning so badly you were afraid to walk past them and cause a draught, graves were smashed and overgrown and slate headstones crumbling and flaking and it was small, very small, hardly bigger than my garden, not a huge task, is there no authority that can do anything? I know some of the bigger graveyards are a mess also but are huge, this one is small and some of the dates go back to early 1700's, what a shame

That's very sad Mary. Perhaps the local council could tell you who is responsible for maintenance, if anyone. I guess in many cases it is left to volunteers to maintain graveyards.
MaryLennon

Posted: Fri Apr 13, 2007 9:54 pm   Post subject:
 
we went first to a small graveyard in Killyleagh, no church near it, a long sloping hill, with a small parking area, a tap for water, spare plastic containers for flowers, a skip, grass beautifully cut and when you walked to the very top it was a beautiful view for anyone there visiting or tending a grave, what a contrast.

One grave my son and I both stood over for a wee while was for a Katie, our wee daughter and it had teddy bears and lots of flowers 2003, very sad.

A lot of the smaller graveyards are left to go to rack and ruin because there is no one to look after them... many councils do not accept responsibility. I remember contacting a council several years ago to ask about a graveyard in which I knew ancestors were buried and which was total overgrown... they new nothing about the graveyard, who was buried there or took responsibility for its upkeep... it was left to locals etc getting together every so often to clear it out... although the last time seems to have been many years ago. If its attached to a Church it may be looked after or one set up by a council... but others go by the by...
MaryLennon

Posted: Sat Apr 14, 2007 10:08 am   Post subject:
 
there's a beautiful wee church attached but according to other people we spoke to it has no minister at the moment, and cleaning up would be a delicate operation as there's alot of information in the bits and pieces lying around the ground, would take brains, brawn and common sense to sort it all out...

McConville

I also have the details for another McConville, Joseph, who may also be a Great Uncle of mine as I was told my Joseph also died in WWI. I'd be happy to give you that record too, although I could not state 100% that he is one and the same. One thing I can say is that the place he was born, Shankill, is where my Joseph's Grandmother, Susan McMorran (nee Pepper) originally came from, so there is a good possibility that it's him. Please let me know if you want me to send the record.

Ancestry.com is a pain like that but you can set up a free account which will give you basic access to Ancestry.com and associated sites... it has proven useful in the past when they've had days were access was free to certain parts of their info.

Been there, done that Eddie. Ancestry.com is up there with UHF and Scotland's people. Their meanings of free and mine are a wee bit differet. Nuff said.

Hi 'eastender'
Thank u firstly for the interest shown in my family tree, i appreciate it and then please accept my apologies - i am not very 'clued up' on the workings of the internet but am learning. I would like to add that after reading your posting, i have to agree with u in that ancestry is rather a pain in the...ummm, arm and most certainly is not free (except the 14 day trial) but hey, when u're just starting out, u get kinda 'suckered'. Anyway, enough rambling - wanted to let u know that im currently designing a site (if anyone has webdesign instructions...4 blondes - please don't hold back ) to display my tree and will let you know the minute its ready

No problems coogirlc.

I look forward to seeing the finished product.

Maybe eddiec has some tips about web page design programs

What you want is a genealogy program rather than a web design program. These progams allow you to collate and store all your info.

Most of the half decent ones will come with an option to export the data as a set of html files which you can put on a website or you can use something like GenesReunited which allows you to build a site directly on the web.

Theres a thread in the Family Trees board giving some suggestions (including one from eastender )

Have a look at my own genealogy site(i really have to get round to doing some work on it) click the link to trees in the menu on the left. These trees were created by my genealogy program and are an example of what you can do.

As far as I was aware FTM had an online site where you could upload your tree so I checked their web site

Heres what they say:

<snip> or through a free Internet homepage.
Submitting your family tree to MyFamily.comís collection of user-submitted trees lets you share your discoveries with the entire genealogy community. <snip>eastender

Hi Alison, I will keep you in mind, I'm not getting an awful lot done at the moment with my mum but I think there's a light at the end of the tunnel so hopefully I'll get a chance to sort myself and the site out a bit soon.
The streets directories I have to do myself as I do them into a template from jpg and no matter what programme I try to transfer them from, the layout always gets messed up and it takes nearly as much time to correct that and proof read the whole thing as it does to just type it myself but I have other things here waiting to be done and I need to get my ass into gear and get them sorted.
Thank you for the offer, I'll be in touch asap.
Mary

They've changed the site a bit and updated the look since my last visit but if I recall they only set out to do the West Belfast info...

It would be nice if they got the funding to expand into the rest... 

One caveat though... some of the info I found was slightly out... houses had been mixed up... I did email them at the time and just checked and see it is still wrong

Got a reply, very nice man 

Yes, indeed, we are expanding outwards all the time (but it is
slow digitising and then checking each census document), and we
will upload new materials at irregular intervals.

Do you an online site or a standalone program. Let us know?

It might be useful to those just starting to have some recommendations and tips.

I'll start the ball rolling...

I use Macs... After a good look at the programs available I went for GEDitCOM It is highly customisable but even 'out of the box' it did just what I wanted.

ok when it says Macintosh (including MacOS X) what does that mean? Does it work on xp or am I way off course and its something else?

btw I didn't even know you could get Programs for Family Trees

OK... there are two main types of PC those running Windoze and those running Mac OS. Programs written for Windows don't run under Mac OSX and vice versa. (although with the latest Apple computers you can run both using virtualisation software)

At a meeting of the Corporation, on the 1st February, 1877, an influential deputation waited on the Council to request
permission to have a portrait of Sir Robert Boag placed in the Council Hall. The permission was readily granted and
subsequently a life size painting of Sir Robert - a splendid work of art from the atelier of Mr. (now Sir T. A.) Jones, President
of the Royal Hibernian Academy - was suspended to the immediate left of the main entrance. It is an admirable likeness,
portraying Sir Robert with remarkable fidelity and accuracy in form and features. The figure is represented in court dress,
the left hand bearing a glove and resting on his side, while the right carries his hat. The posing is natural and graceful, and
pervaded by the ease and freedom in the lining which characterise all Sir T. A. Jones' works. The portrait is enclosed in a
massive gilt frame, at the base of which appears the following inscription :-
"Alderman Sir Robert Boag, Knt.,
Mayor, 1876.
Presented to the Municipality by his fellow citizens."
Painted by T. A. Jones, P.R.H.A.

Posted: Sun Apr 01, 2007 4:45 pm   Post subject: McGifford surname in Belfast and areas
 
Hi ,
My name that I am having a difficult time in locating stems from the lower Ards and around the Strang Lough upwards to Killyleag including Portaferry and Downpatrick and Saul.
The man was James McGiffert and his wife was Mary Carson. He was born around the 1810 timeframe and was classed as a ploughman on some estate. He had eleven children according to an obituary of one of his sons [ William ] from Ohio. My line stems from another son Arthur who married one Margaret O,Hara from Belfast [ Shankill ] area.
There must be records of deaths someplace. His death seems to have occured around 1860 give or take several years.
This reasoning is from a certificate from another of his sons who immigrated to Scotland and on his death certificate it shows his father as being diseased in 1863. But an earlier certificate showed him as being an estate worker.
Not sure if this means anything.
The question...
How would I go about locating the death of this James McGiffert and or Mary Carson.
Or his marriage for that matter. Something to help in proving the name of his father.
Anything will probably help as I have nothing to go on.
Thanks.
Redwillow

Hi Redwillow

Welcome to the forum. Hopefully someone will be able to give you a lead.

For my tuppence worth...

You probably already know that official registration for births began in 1864, before that there are few places you could find the information.

If he was a regular churchgoer it is possible (but not always so) that his burial was recorded in the church records.

The other is if he was lucky enough to have a notice or mention in the local paper - unfortunately here I can find no local paper for the area for that time frame (all started after the early 1870s)

Maybe Mary can find a reference in the Directories.

You don't mention the death date for his wife...

Hello Redwillow
have you had a look at the www.caora.net site ?
there's a link on there to the Ros Davies site (youll find it under the heading of DOWN on the top bar i can't post the actual link at the moment as my key board is playing up and i cant get the squiggley line to work )
Anyhow on there is a surnames list and McGifford/Mcgiffert figures quite a bit so prehaps worth a look if you haven't already.
Kind regards
Meg

Slaters 1846
checked Newtownards, Killyleagh
Portaferry only thing close is

Milliners & Dressmakers
McGifford, Isabella, Portaferry (she's also listed in the 1861 online)

sorry nothing else even remotely close, I used the Ulster Covenant as a guide to that area and checked any that were listed in the Index.

Posted: Mon Apr 02, 2007 1:56 pm   Post subject: McGifford and McGiffert
 
Thanks all for the info ,
I guess I should have notified as to what I have already done in regards to my research.
Yes , I have been to CAORA and Davis as well as almost every site that mentions Ireland. Like looking for the small stone in a feild of small stones. They are all there but which one is the right one.
I have a copy of all deaths , marriages and births of every McGiffert / McGifford and their variables from the Mormon Library film records which shows all from 1863 onward to 1920 something. I have a group of gravestones which mention several McGifford families but does not mention the James or Mary Carson I need. Unfortunately I do not know the exact dates of their demise , only that James was gone by 1863. Not much to go on. I am wondering if he may have gone to scotland to be with the several of the family who emmigrated there. But Scotlands people do not have any record of this.
But then if he did go their in his old age and was not ever shown on any record he would still be listed as a death. Or would he. Was there private burials on private land that was secret from the government eyes?
Not likely but I am grasping at straws.
It is my assumption that he was an employee on either the Montgomery estate or a close proximity. Methinks maybe there could be records from these estate s in PRONI. Could this be?
The surname shows up on Valuation records going back to the mid 1700 era in this area and not elseware.
There is an Australian site that also mentions the McGifford family but as usual they only mention ''from Ireland" in the place of birth.
There was a John McGiffert from Killyleagh who was deeply involved in McGiffert genealogy...? He died three years ago willing his papers to PRONI The McGiffert Letters , A group of thirty letters written to the McGiffert family who owned a plantation in Alabama. I have a copy of these and they in themselves do show a couple of the families and relatives. The only problem with these letters is that they do not show who is who..just cousin this and cousin that. Portaferry is where this family originated and the milner was the sister to the James who went to America in 1819, There were two other sisters who opened a hotel for women in Belfast.
Dr McGiffert is listed as an uncle. All I need to do is find ..WALDO..

If anyone from the KILLYLEAGH area ever gets to the main library I wonder if you could inquire for me as to the whereabouts of the main family genealogy that this 'John McGiffert ' had so extensivly done. It appears that he did not deposit this aspect of his papers into PRONI.
I have written to the library but did not ever receive a reply.
This could answer me questions. Maybe the road has indeed reached an end with no further truth or proof.
Thanks again all for your intrest

A check of PRONI shows quite a number of "Montgomery papers" but not much detail. A phone call should clarify if they might have what you are looking for.

As you seem to have covered most of the bases already, have you tried contacting the local paper and seeing if they will put in a notice in asking if anyone has any information on John McGiffert and/or his history files. Maybe if he was married there might be an in-law or two.

I emailed Killyleagh today, if they don't answer by Wednesday morning, I'll ring them and kick some hiney, only kidding but I'd like to know why they plaster their email all over the internet and don't answer it, even if they answer mine, there's no excuse for not answering your letter.

Hopefully they'll get back to me and then we can see what they have, I fancy a wee toot to Killyleagh, no ferry though, uhuh no way, me and water, in a bath only with bubbles...will let you know what happens.

Hi all ,
Still winter here in Canada this morning. 50 mph winds blowing from the n w but nothing like the three feet of snow just south of us. A nice day to go over the genealogy I have and don,t have.
Did not have much luck with Killyleagh and Mary taking the time to go for me. A great horaaaaaw to her for being so kind.
But then,,,,if this great hobby was to easy nobody would be at it. Everyone would be done , so I guess a few dire moments are worth it as it gives one the attitude to do further searching through history , publications of news events and lets one know and understand the lifestyles portrayed by such events and why these people did as they did.
Thanks again Mary and everyone else who showed an intrest in my search.
Redwillow

I don't know who was more disappointed 

The info at Killyleagh is fine if you're looking for marriages and baptisms as its photocopies of church entries but for what we were hoping to find, personal research or family trees by John McGiffert, unfortunately there were none, still, the only way is up (famous words by Yazz) 

I think Killyleagh should have those records online....they would be invaluable to many people.

Hi all ,
Now there is a brilliant idea. As I was led to beleive there is a family historical group centered at the Killyleagh Library. Maybe all one needs to do is put a bee in their bonnets and see what happens. Those records would indeed be invaluable to others seeking ancesters within that area.
Some year we are going to huff and puff and finally save enough for an Irish vacation. Not sure when though. In the realm of life genealogy is far from number one in the need to do bracket. But one can hope.
We have on word the on line history of Ireland with no punches witheld concerning what England was about and the deliberate hardship they placed upon the people of Ireland/Ulster in the name of profit for arrogant and greedy landlords. Really good read. It is under ' Gutenberg e books ' if anyone be interested. Free to download at will.
We are getting well informed on the plantation period as well and are still searching for the surname McGifford which is a branch of the Giffard family who came to England with William the Conqueror and fought in the battle of hastings and as a reward ware granted confiscated lands in various areas of Britian. The Low Land Scots area was one of the areas though the name is not that prominent and seems to have died out in the sixteen hundreds with the last being two daughters . So it is baffling to say the least when t it is stated in the plantation of Ulster within Down , one of the names is McGifford , from Scotland [ low land scots ]
Methinks that somewhere there is a Baillie connection . Ringdufferin. This seems to be the area where the Baillies did get land and began the draining of the bogs of Ards. There is also a reference to a showing at a marriage of Ringdufferin by one Ballie as well as one McGiffert.
It is just figuring the connection..
This is going to be quite an accomplishment ... me with my two fingered typing methods and no speed reading skill. But then the boys are all grown up and we just replaced the rugs with laminated flooring so the housework is at a minimal. My hubby does all the cooking and seems to love it with all his new recipes from different areas of the world. Loves his many virisions of Chicken or chops.
He keeps wanting to show off his lamb recipes as he grew up on a large sheep farm in Northern Alberta where his father immigrated to in 1928.
But I have never had the taste for mutton. Maybe at sometime later.
Anyways I have learned more in this last three years of genealogy than my entire schooling ever taught me.
The cruelities that one group of people can place upon another in the name of family and stature and not ever have a smidgin of guilt. Makes one wish they could have a machine gun and a time machine. Things would be different then.. eh?
To me I assume that these McGiffords did indeed originate somewhere in the southern Ards around Ballyphilip and spread around the Lough.
I have traced one from Carnreaggh , Hillsborough area back to 176o and onwards to one John in Toronto. I have traced a Thomas McGiffert of Antrim all the way through Scotland and on to Winnipeg Manitoba where she is a MPP represenative for the last ten years or more...Dianne McGifford.
I have traced Arthur Cushman McGiffert from Ireland , Down to Ashtaboola Ohio where he was a Minister.
I have traced one James McGiffert from County Down , portaferry to Green Co Alabama where he had extensive holdings until the civil war broke the plantation and the slaves were all freed.

These akll originate in County Down Ireland and seem to get lost around the early 1800 or if one follows any grave inscription and trace the births then the mid 1700. I have nias yet found a McGifford into 1600. This leads me to beleive they did not come until very close to 1700. But then I could be wrong. I was once before... 
I better close this disclosure but not the search.
Thanks again all for any help . Keep your eyes out for anything that may help.

don't worry red, our springs tend to come early and we've been known to have snow in May so we ain't out of the woods yet.
Its the NIFHS that have a branch meeting in the library first Monday (I think) of every month, Northern Ireland Family Historical Society of which John McGiffert was a founder member, they might be the ones to approach about getting the church records online, something to keep in mind for the not too distant future, maybe we can get Eddie and his cam on the job sometime if they permit it, we'll see, won't be immediate though, we both have projects lined up and waiting... 

I will keep my eyes peeled

its the bestest thing ever but I'm sorely disappointed in the quality, so much info is missing by the poor scanning

I'll lend them my book scanner, if they ask nicely 

I started the 1944 and 1952 and have already put a few pages of the 1944 online but I'm trying tp get the right balance between size and quality, I did this a few months back but it's on hold now until I get my Mum organised

anyway, this is where they will be eventually

http://www.lennonwylie.co.uk/1944STREETS1.htm

the images there now are too blurry and I'm rescanning those pages but it will have to wait another wee while

Looking through the Directories though you need to be very very specific in your search criteria... as you know not everybody... well... you know what I mean Smile

One street search I did gave me 692 returns... i gave up at the 40th image listing from the Alpha section - some of which didn't actually have the name of the Street!!... I did a quick selection of other links and only got Alpha section.

Narrowing the search using the options to ask for only pages from the Street section and exact words brought the number down to 218 but still listed many images from the alpha section but now I was able to see the Street listings.

Also important to point out... when you are viewing an image from a search... if you look to the right below the arrows listing the number of the image in the search you will find two other arrows unnamed that will allow you to view the next image in that directory allowing you to continue looking through that particular directory if you wanted (although that would be a very tedious way to do it Smile but does allow you to see the next page if the street runs over.

Do you know if they are going to do the Belfast Directories that are missing from their list? And... are they going to do after 1900?

What date are the street directories available to online? And also what date is the latest census? Where can the 1901/1911 census be viewed online (other than belfastfamilyhistory.com)?

Thanks

Proni have put up to 1900 online, see first post but I have heard they have sent many for rescanning, fingers crossed that's not just a rumour, now we need to get them together with GoogleBooks so they can see a real search work.
Google Books search shows highlighted your search results on each page, no need to read the whole thing to find the one word you are looking for like the Proni search.
the other question Eddie will answer, I'm useless

Unfortunately the 1901/1911 census (censii?) are NOT available online YET!

An agreement to digitalize the 1901 and 1911 census for Ireland was signed in December 2005 between the National Archives of Ireland and Library and Archives Canada. The project has been divided into sections, the first being County Dublin for 1911 which it is hoped will be available online by the end of 2007. It is hoped that the entire project will be completed over the next 3 years.

The digitization of the microfilms is nearly all completed, and work is ongoing to link the images to the appropriate geographic descriptions. In addition to the census research tool, the National Archives of Ireland is also creating a variety of essays with complimentary digitized photographs to better contextualize Dublin and Ireland as a whole in 1911 and 1901. There are 1209 reels of microfilm for 1901 and 3281 for 1911 - films of the actual householders returns. The backs of the householder returns were filmed for 1911 but not for 1901. The project is commencing with 1911 as the quality of the films is better in 19911 than 1901.

Posted: Fri Mar 09, 2007 6:23 pm   Post subject: Jane Frances FETHERSTONHAUGH
 
Mary, its me AGAIN , The last Will left by Aunt Lallie (SMJ McCorriston/nee Scott) mentions a cousin Jane Frances Fetherstonhaugh (correct spelling -although there is several varations I have seen) of 106 North Parade Belfast. The Ulster Covenant 1912 throws up A M Fetherstonhaugh (wrongly transcribed). The Will would have been written around 1941. Any information on the Fetherstonhaugh's times at 106 North Parade and any jobs noted would be interesting. I think there is a link to a Rev Fetherstonhaugh of Knockbreda Parish Church who died around 1800.
Very many thanks 
Peter

108. Fetherstonhaugh, Mrs. Mary

1918 has her at number 106 but that's a domino effect from a wrong number earlier in the street

1968 the house may be in flats or flats built in place of it, she's not there anyway

 Another sucess Mary. The Will had 108 typed in but it had been scored out in pencil and 106 entered, and as you say some confusion from numbering elsewere in the street. A lot of the houses in this street have been sub-divided into bed sits and flats hence after 1968 no record further. 
Thanks again for all the very quick responses. All this is building up a good foundation for further research. 
I assume Rupert John - Solicitor - Mountmellick - was under the "names" section for 1913 SD. Spooky as I have living relatives from a completely different side of the family who lived and worked in Mountmellick and have just now bought a plot of land there to build a retirement home Mountmellick is not that a big place but there appears to be Fetherstonhaughs in Dublin not that far away

it is the 1913 Telephone Directory I can give you the phone number too 

there were a couple of other Fetherstonhaugh's, will get them tomorrow if you like....not many mind you but I did notice 2 others throughout the directories and 1 may be connected as he was a linen merchant.

Don't ignore coincidences, you just never know

If I get it right ,you were typing up "Fetherstonhaugh" before my request?? if you are looking for Fetherstonhaughs or Fetherstons here is a good website I came accross. Along the scroll bar to the left to "the house of Fetherstonhaugh" plus "wills" etc has good references to both and several ways of spelling the names. The site has lots on Irish connections, North and South. Hope this helps you, and thanks again for all the effort.

I was transcribing the 1913 phone book the night before your query and was surprised to see the name again as it certainly isn't a common one
btw The phone books finished yay 

but I wasn't looking for the name at all but all links are good to have here as you never know who else will toddle along researching that name

Hi Mary,
This is a new Fetherstonhaugh to me and may be connected. My Fetherstonhaugh married James Scott in 1866 at "Alfred St Presbyterian Church" .....there is none....it was a "meeting house" that in time became/moved to become Fitzroy Presbyterian Church. The area of Belfast is right and my James Vance Scott is recorded as being born in Catherine Street in 1867. I think they lived nearby and the Birth happened at Catherine St....can't find Scotts there in or around 1867.
Will check out this new Fetherstonhaugh.
thanks
Peter

Ha ha very funny Mary I should have put Mr Kipling. Anyway I know there is a gap in SDs. There are Canavans living in Baker St in the 1901 census so I was trying to trace back to when they first appeared.They are very elusive these Canavans.

have you checked all of the 1880's for Canavans?
use the Google search at the top of the page to search the whole site 

Anthony and Maggie May have directories for

1884 Anthony

Belfast Fire Brigade
MaryLennon

Posted: Fri Mar 16, 2007 9:16 am   Post subject: Belfast Fire Brigade
 
http://homepage.ntlworld.com/bill.broadhurst/index.htm

Bill Broadhurst retired on 24th October 2003 from the Northern Ireland Fire Brigade while Harry Welsh officially retired on the 1st June 2003. Initially they became friends during their service together on White Watch at Central Fire Station Chichester street Belfast, when they discussed the history of the Belfast Brigade and where it could be found. Shortly afterwards as a search began it quickly became apparent that all or most of the records kept by the brigade had been destroyed or re-cycled during the Second World War to assist with paper shortages.
The first part of their journey took them to The Linenhall Library in Belfast renound for its historical archives, and at first not knowing exactly what they were seeking their search seemed to be one of folly. It was only as they became more familiar with the services provided by the library that they began to put together the first snippets of references to the fire brigade from different sources such as. The Water Service, The Police Service, Early leglislation, Old maps and Newspapers.

In December 1904 the Bangor Urban District Council met and decided to go ahead with preparations to provide a fire brigade for the town, and Samuel T. Coulter was appointed as Chief Officer of the new Bangor fire brigade which was officially inaugurated on 1 January 1905.

Hi i am new to this but i am trying to locate information on my Grandfather's Military Background. His name Was William Craig Gray and he was a private in the 1st Bat. Seaforth Highlanders between 1914 and 1920. His Regt No 10289. He was apparently originally from Scotland but Lived in Belfast after he left the Army and married my Grandmother in 1920. This is all the info i have so if anyone can help it wud be great

Hello nicapri Welcome to the Forum

Do you have the details of the marriage, like the certificate or anything? the church whereabouts may give you a clue to the area they lived in, I'm away from my street directories at the moment but I will check them later for any William Grays and let you know.

Would 1907 have been too early? its online now anyway
http://www.lennonwylie.co.uk/BSD1907_Streets_Start.htm

I will check the 1918-23 and onwards later today.

Mary

Yep they were Married at Knockbreda C.O.I, Belfast on the 9th Oct 1920, I know that they lived at 131 Avoneil Road, Belfast and that my Grandfather's Birth Certificate has him listed at 40 Trillick Street at the time of their Marriage (Wifes Name Olive Mary Bosomworth) His Dad is listed as James Gray and his dad apparently Catherine Gray (Maiden Name Unknown)

This is were my problem starts I don't know his mums maiden name and apparently they came from Scotland so i don't know when they arrived in Ireland were they were living in Scotland, or were my Grandfather was born

Were Do i Start i am signed up with Ancestry.co.uk but there are loads of William Grays in Scotland what do i need to narrow this down. I thought army services record might hold some clues but as i don't have any yet and don't know if i'll be able to get any i am at a lose.

Sorry but im confused with that statement... ... do you mean the marriage certificate?

Anyway... the birth certificate should give the mothers maiden name...

You should be able to estimate his age which will give you the year... hopefully you wont have to look for too many records... cross reference that with the Fathers name

IF he was born in Scotland you should really look at www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk

Oops your right should have been Marriage Certificate sorry. ok here is what i Know for definite:

William Craig Gray born 1888 / 89 Scotland

Joined the first Battalion the Seaforth Highlanders 1914 and entered the war in France Aug 1915. he Served until 1920

William Craig Gray Married Olive Mary Bosomworth 9th October 1920 at Knockbreda COI, Belfast.

I Know he died when my Father was 2 and my Father was Born 13 Aug 1939 so i am estimating that he died in around 1941 and may be buried at Knockbreda Church Cemetry am going there to find out

On the Marriage Certificate his father is listed as a James Gray and that they lived at 40 Trillick Street, Belfast

Between 1918 to 1931 Street directories show a Jas Gray, Labourer living at 40 Trillick St and Directories from 1940 to 1950 show a Mrs Catherine Gray at 40 Trillick St Could this be his mother?? who knows

Hope this now makes a bit more sense instead of the wild rambling i was doing before
eddiec

Posted: Tue Aug 21, 2007 10:40 pm   Post subject:
 
makes a lot more sense 

I would agree it looks like his mother... and if she was in the 1940 directory chances are thats when James died.

If he was born in Scotland then Scotlandspeople.gov.uk is the way to go to find his birth... you may need to check a few records out but they are not prohibitively expensive... and Scottish records will give you a lot more info than the Irish ones such as the parents marriage details... they also have all the census data on line.

nicapri, are you in contact with Jackie who is also researching Bosomworth/Gray?
I've exchanged several emails with her in the recent past, I did try to email her this morning but the email bounced?

unfortunately that means I would probably have exhausted my resources, the street directories, with Jackie

Hopefully Eddie's advice with prove fruitful, hope so 

If you uncover any new leads regarding streets and addresses, just shout.

I don't think your work is quite over yet Mary there are still a lot of blanks and dates need confirming so i am sure myself or Jackie will be in contact agian.

infact i have a question for yourself or Eddie now

Are there any records of Scots/English coming to Ireland i.e. Ship records like you have with those who immagrated to foriegn lands. Would like to know when and how my ancestors came to Ireland.

Also i have been able to get back to 1847 with another branch of my family who were from Strabane and Lifford. But i am now at a stand still because i can't locate any more records

Can either of you shed any light on these Queries and point me in the right direction

Cheers
nicapri

Would also like to find out more about my Grandfather William Gray's Military years, Have been in contact with the National Archives Kew and they tell me it will cost £60 to do a search (less document Copies) on the burnt Records and there is no Garantee that his Service record survived the bombing in 1940 as only 25 to 30% of the records survived. so they may get nothing

So really don't know wether it's worth spending £60

I have his rank, Number and regt. and also a medal card that i paid £3.50 for showing him entering the Theatre of War in France 9th August 1915

What do you think? Is it worth a try?

Unless you are lucky and the log book of the ship survives somewhere the answer is probably no!

There would have been hundreds of ships trading back and forward between here and Scotland (not all passenger ships obviously) and if you had the money you could purchase passage and not every instance would have been recorded. Although if coming as a family passage on one of the steamers would probably have been booked.

I could equate it to the Stranraer ferry... purchase a ticket as a foot-passenger get on and off at the other side... except today a record of your name would be on the passenger list... I wonder if the ferry line keep those records? In 150 years will people be asking when did my ancestors come over from Scotland/Ireland...? and will they be able to check the manifest?

I'm afraid thats a question only you can answer... is it worth £60 to you for the attempt?

Have you tried the Great War Forum? I know a few people who have had a very postive experience and a lot of help on their forums.

Hi,

My ancestor Samuel McCULLY, was born 20 Sep 1819, Edenderry, Belfast,
to Robert McCULLY and Jane BAILEY (aka WALLACE).

There are several Edenderrys in Ireland however the one just out of Belfast on the Shankill Road seems to be right place.

Can't find a whole lot on the web about it, appreciate any information about the place.

Cheers

Jim

I thought it best to email them and ask, here's the reply, hope it helps 

Mary

Dear Mary

Further to your query re above, a number of graveyards are comprised within Belfast parish, and the index to these is contained within our gravestone inscription records. For the adjacent parish of Shankill we have only one graveyard surveyed - Shankill Interdenominational - but there is no index for this and so the records do not appear on our databases. Any references to Shankill in the context of Belfast refer to Belfast City Cemetery.

Our apologies for any confusion and we do hope that we will be able to assist with any further information requirements that you may have.

All best wishes

Willie O'Kane

Think they are trying to say there is a graveyard in Shankill but we dont have the records, so if we do have records it must be City Cemetery (I think) 
MaryLennon

So their records say they have Shankill burials but they don't?
I wonder at what stage in the payment process do they tell you that?

I'm sure they wouldn't risk their business by doing that but I think they should amend their records to avoid confusion.

anyway go to bed I think I might take my own advise, its a lousy old wet night, perfect for a warm bed and a good book

Hi I am looking for any link to my Grandmother Elizabeth Hamilton born in Hillsborough circa 1901 but can find no birth record. I beleive she lived in Virginia Street at the time of my mother's birth in 1941 with her older sister Sarah Jane Sparrow nee Hamilton. I am not sure how the forum works or what information I can get by requesting a look up for this address. Can anyone help or point me in the right direction? Many thanks.
MaryLennon

Hello Blackcornish, Welcome to the Forum 

first of all - I laughed out loud at the description in your profile for interests 

you're in good company, we are all lost to genealogy, well, I am anyway

Do you have Elizabeth's fathers name?, his trade?

1940
Virginia Street
22. Vacant

1941-42-43-44-45-48-49-50-51-52-53-54-59-60-61-65
Virginia Street
22. Sparrow, Gerald (1949-50 stoker) (1951-52-53-54-59-60-61-65 no trade) (gone 1968)

nb there's an Alex. Hamilton, fitter at no. 41? in 1940-41-42-43-44-45 (1948-49-50-51-52-53-54-59-60-61-65-68 Mrs. I. Hamilton)-(Isabella)

Hi Mary, yes my daughter thinks I am very sad, she comes back from 'clubbing' in the early hours and I am still searching websites...it is a curse!

As you may have gathered from my other posting, Elizabeth's father is John Hamilton the Pork Cutter. The Gerald Sparrow you found is my Grandmothers sister's husband. Living there until 1968 would make sense as I am told that Sarah Jane Sparrow died around that time. I will have to look into the Alex Hamilton and Isabella Hamilton, I have no idea who they could be.

Thanks again Mary

Hi Carole, Yes I know, I sit here until my feet go numb then I do a wee dance under the desk and type in time, and you're daughter thinks you are sad 

I love the name Sparrow, wish I'd been called that Mary Sparrow, has a ring

Hi Mary, yes it's quite unusual isn't it. My family name is Mannix (which my Dad is researching at the moment) it apparantly means mad Monk or something, which would be quite appropriate for us.

I have found some great info on Samuel Hamilton who died in WW1, there are some very useful sites out there. Unfortunately I don't know what relation to my Great Grandfather he was. He could have been his brother or his son but can find nothing else at the moment.

I may have to cancel Christmas at this rate!!

How long have you been researching and how well are you doing?
MaryLennon

Posted: Thu Nov 08, 2007 7:19 pm   Post subject:
 
Hi Carole, I'm with you on cancelling Christmas, save me giving the house its annual clean 

My dad got me started about 4 years ago, he actually did all the foot work, I just searched online but I didn't find an awful lot, a few bits and pieces but it was still nice to find them anyway, today is the first big break I've had, I found what I think is my great great granda (I hope) in the 1852 Street Directory, which, by the way I've just put on the site.

lol@mad monk

btw have you any Nutters in your family seeing as you corner the market on unusual names, I just got WW1 medals for an H. Nutter, *rolls eyes

Mary

added November 2008

"Although not one of my lines, I do happen to have some research on the Nutter family in Ireland/Northern Ireland and would be happy to share this with any fellow researcher who may find it of help to them. Starting from Samuel Nutter who married in Belfast in mid 1800's and following through his son Thomas Nutter, who married in Belfast then moved to Londonderry. I also have some details of a John Nutter from the same timescale as Thomas, albeit haven't yet proven a link to him and Samuel. I can be contacted via scotmum on www.rootschat.com

Hi, does anyone know where I can get records online of births in Co. Tyrone. My great grandfather Peter McLoughlin was born there around 1870 ish could be up to 1872, his father was Andrew McLoughlin and his Mother Catherine, but I dont know anything else. I have looked on Emerald and Ulster Ancestry sites but they dont have the records. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Mary.

As it was after 1864 there should be a civil registration.

If you contact GRONI... www.groni.gov.uk ... they can do a search for you. Obviously there is a charge for this but i think they will search one or two years either side of the date you give them. Fuller information should be on the site.

As it was before partition the information will also be available from the GRO in Dublin... www.groireland.ie/

Hi all I have found this great website which is a free and searchable database of all who perished in WW1 who lived in the Lisburn Area (this includes areas of Down and Antrim) There is a short piece on each casualty which tells you something of the soldier and how he died. Hope it proves useful to someone.
