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 !

I have to admit, I haven't gone through this site thoroughly but I use it regularly for checking the WW1 Medals Cards, I found my Grandfathers there, even though the middle name was Wrong, as with the Ulster Covenant, allow for spelling variations.

Here is a sample of what you get if you pay for a Card 3.50

I assume they all come in 6's???

Hi Mary

May I ask for a look up, I understand that you will need to contact another person on this one. I am trying to find the address for my grandfather Alexander/Alex Moore, so that I can order the 1901 census, the last address I have for 1899 is 38 Roslyn Street. the next is for 1903 at 36 Mount Street, His occupation is either Clerk or Foreman. he seems to wear two hats. Thank you

Regards

Richard

Hi Mary

After all these months I finally had a chance to view the 1901 census for Mount St, not there, a man on the move. However, I have just received his death cert. he is listed as being at 32 Lawther Street, his wife died in 1918. Would you be kind enough to look at a circa 1919 directory to see if he was there then.

Thank you so much

regards

Richard

Just a little aside... Clerk could stand for Clerk of Works... they made sure work carried out on a building site followed the construction plans and met quality and safety standards and checked job progress to make sure the project was delivered on schedule.

Thank you for the info on A.Moores abode, also, to Eddie for his imput on Clerk. from what I understand he was the Clerk at John Milligen's Coal yard for many years. The family story goes that he was friends with either the son or nephew of Millgan and he was offered the job on his return to ireland. he had been living in Troon, Ayr with relatives as his parents had died when he was young (another family story). On the census for Troon plus his marriage cert he puts down the relative Patrick Moore as his father, as yet have still to find his birth circa 1851 belfast.

Hi Mary,

How are you Keeping....

Could you possibly check your directories between 1912 and 1946 for a Robert Henry Close 23 Humber Way....this is the address on his death certificate, the last address I have for him is 74 NewCastle street in 1912 at the signing of the Ulster Covenant.

As well, the informant on his death Cert is listed as Mr. Kernin, 24 Symons Street, however, I'm thinking may be "William McKernin" who was married to his daughter Nellie.

Any consideration would be greatly appreciated.....Thanking you in Advance for all your hard work.

All the Best
Wendy

Hi Wendy
I'm good thanks

1918 to 1945
Humber Street (there is no Way)
23. Close, Robt., blacksmith (gone 1948)

no sign of Kernin or variants at 24 Symons Street, there's a David, Low, mechanic there in 1910 to 1931 so he may have been staying with friends or boarding at that address?

aha
1940-41-42-43-44-45-48-49-50
Symons Street
24. McKernin, William, labourer

1951-52
Symons Street
24. McKernin, Wm., plumber

1953-54
Symons Street
24. McKernin, Wm., plumber's helper (gone 1959)

Mary
