Great site my friend, who I think you know, has 1917 directory this would add greatly to a wonderful local resource as we have relatively little in comparison with the mainland.

Keep up the good work.

My mother-in-law gave me some jewellery purchased from Rankin Bros in Belfast (case included the name and address) so your site has let me date when the business operated from the said premises. I can now try and work out the family connection.

Thank you for all of your efforts. It must have been a tremendous amount of work.

I appreciate the tremendous effort you have made in bringing all the directory, links and history information to people like me, especially those of us so far away.

Thanks to Jack on Jean McCarthy's website I now know that my great great grandfather William BELL of Templepatrick married Eve HILL in St Anne's in 1830. Their son Robert (my GGF) was also baptised in the same ch in 1833. I have no knowledge of where Wm and Eve were born or are buried.

I have found your site search facility of great help in allowing me to find what you do have on your site and recommend it's use to other viewers.

Cheers and Thanks again from the other side of the world.

This is a great site which has helped me follow my relatives movements using the street directories. Through Eddies extracts I discovered an uncle who died of the flu in 1918. I am looking for information on Coopers who may have come from Rostrevor and a Father Peter McPolin who was my father's cousin.

My grandfather was a gunner in the 23rd Battery.
Sadly he passed away a long time ago but the memories of the stories he told me have come flooding back since finding this fantastic site.
His name was Leonard C Cain & he lived in Hertfordshire after returning from Burma. He lived there with his wife Ellen who was originally from Oldham, Lancashire.
He would often mention his best friend Brownie (GNR A Brown) who I believe was from the Essex area. If anyone reading this knows of any relatives of 'Brownie', I would love to hear from them.
Thanks for creating such a fab website!!

Was interested to note in Islandmagee entries for Robert Houston and Samuel Houston, farmers, Cloughfin. These are my forefathers. Am trying to make some sort of order in geanology, as there are so many Roberts, Williams, Samuels, James and Thomas Houstons. Was delighted to see their names. I have the feeling This Robert Houston may have been my grandfather's grandfather. Well I will keep trying. What year was this list of names in Islandmagee for?? Thanks. Theresa Angel (nee Houston)

Not sure what to put in 'where I come from' field! I was born in England, of Belfast born parents and have lived in Australia for past 37 yrs so Australia wins as being the place I've lived the longest! This is a lovely site and will pass the link onto my parents, I'm sure they will find it interesting. I can't find my Granda's name listed here - Christopher Russell - he fought in Battle of the Somme and suffered mustard gas poisoning but lived till approx 73/74. also my Uncle [his son] who was a Dunkirk veteran and served with Royal Enniskillen Fusiliers - he passed away on 4th June 2006 - have a copy of his obit for anyone interested plus fotos.
The Russell family used to live in Wesley Street, off the Donegall Road near Sandy Row.

I have just found the site and having hit a brick wall with other sites I have at last located my grandfather Thomas Russell, of Portland St, Belfast. I am interested in any info that can be gleaned about the family- he married a Nora Flynn from a long line of them her father was Patrick and she had a twin called Michael.

Grandfather Thomas Russell worked on the building of the City Hall- the dome in particular, as family lore has it and his son Robert, my father, worked as a steel erector- no fear of heights he was nicknamed 'Digger'.
As previously said any info would be gratefully received.

Do you have any idea where I can find this out. Now I know more of my family history, so far I am the third generation to serve in the Army and I am proud it and my family history.

Your name caught my eye. My ancestor was John Wylie, born in 1712 in Ballymena, Antrim, Ireland. He came to America, probably with a group of Presbyterians led by Rev. Martin, around 1767. Just wondered if we were kin.

Excellent site but a little complex and frustrating for me.

QUESTION I hope somebody can give me some help.

How do I find the name of the family who lived in 19 Wellington Park Belfast in 1945/46./47.48. The older gentleman was I believe the Dean of Methodist College at that time, There were 2 daughters or, grand daughters Jane and Rosemary (Ages 18 & 15 ) around that time. Is anyone from that area at that time who might have the answer????

Many thanks

Terrific site with lots of information. I was disappointed that I couldn't find the Aug 5, 1927 Belfast Telegraph article outlining Clyde Kirkwood Weldon's life and his death. It has a pic with it. The only thing I have is a very poor photocopy that was taken from an equally poor copy of the article.

Also in "January 1887 - Jane McTier and Clyde Kirkwood Weldon were charged with firing a loaded revolver at the dwelling house of Bridget Fearon of Saunderson St. They were both returned to trial at the Assizes."

What was the outcome of this trial?

I am researching the Weldon's and would be very interested in whatever else you have.

I see I will be spending a lot of time trawling your site.
Thank you for such great work!
