I'm wondering if James Shaw Patton (Ballymacarrett) or his family could get in touch with me. My dad's Aunt Sarah Dunlop married a James Shaw 1875 . I have lots of info on them, they had a grocery store 392 Newtownards Rd and I would like to know if there is any connection. Thank you. Irene Cunningham

I have 4-5 uncles who served in WW1 in Irish Rifles and Machine Gun Corps, but cannot find them listed on your site. They received medals, but don’t know what happened to them. I did locate on your site another person who referenced the Kenolty men and David Carlisle as relatives. (Cathy Brumage, great niece.). If you could assist with any information and or pass along my email to Ms Brumage I would appreciate it. Thank you. My mum has enjoyed seeing and remembering all the names listed on her family’s addresses.

Lovely to find my ancestors on here. The Cochranes of Castle st, Rathfriland. I must have cousins still in Ireland somewhere. I couldn't find the Gracey name anywhere though.

Hello. I’ve just found a letter that has both surprised and excited me. The letter is from the sister of a housekeeper/nanny who came from Belfast in the early-mid ‘60’s to Mannheim Germany to help my Army father with me. I was ten years old when Theresa Rafferty and her friend Margaret (?) came to stay with us after my mother left my father and me. Theresa and Margaret were an integral part of a tumultuous time for me, but for Theresa as well, as far as my memory serves and certainly confirmed by this letter. The letter is from Theresa’s sister, Patricia Conkey, written to

Hello: Haven't visited the site for a time. I am really impressed and congratulate you on all the effort and time you have spent.
I see two entries in the WW1 section for my two great uncles Robert and James Dickson which I would like to correct. In the case of Robert
10/14369 10Bn, 107 Brigade R.I.R. all entries are ok except for the DoB which should be 1897. In the case of James Dickson his army number was 1/14370 10Bn 107 Brigade.R.I.R. He died on 1st July 1916 Battle of the Somme. And is remembered on the Thiepval Memorial to the missing Pier and Face 15Aand15B. Thanks

I often asked my Mother about her relatives but she didn't say much. Years later I found the story of a young boy who joined the Royal Marines and lost his life in battle in 1918. Also his brother who lived on after 4 years service. These were my grandfather's brothers.

"the pity of war".

Due to the information on this website i was able to find the young man's (my great uncle's ) grave and pay respects. Thank you for the work you have done.

Hi, just to let you know that your Ernest Smith and Col. Beech Death Pennies are modern resin reproductions. You can find numerous copies of them online. They are cast in one piece and then the frame and "bronze" medal are painted the appropriate colours.

Can you confirm any of the men in the 70 battalion boxing winners picture. I'm near positive the man with dark parted hair bottom row second from left is my Granda and boxer from Belfast. Henry (Harry) Elwood. He served in 6th Battalion Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers and fought in Italy. Was rescued winter of 43 by Italian Partisans after being lost on patrol in mountains. Thanks

Hello, I am convinced that a photograph on your website on Park Street, Coleraine has my late Grandma Doherty, her mother and grandmother in it. I have a very similar photograph of this image on which looks like on the same day/time. However they are stood differently. My grandma is the girl on the far left, holding her dress out - next to (whom I believe to be her mother and grandma). I would love to have a copy of this photograph and frame it for my mum. Please could you advise me where I would be able to buy a copy?
Kindest Regards

Hi Mary
I am looking for Belfast Street Directory for 1940. My Grandmother was living at 43 Agincourt Avenue Belfast she had mother 22nd July 1940 and my Mum was then adopted. I would like to see who was living at that address at this time. I have checked 1939 Directory on your site and it says "Brelsford, J." was living there. I am just wondering if there was any change of name in 1940.
Your site is great and very helpful.

Thank you

My great grandparents were from County Down (g grandfather, Robert Cromie) from Rathfriland). I have a great uncle who fought in the war with CEF forces somehow. I have no official records, only family lore about him being gassed, and newspaper accounts of him being in US Army in 1914 (but we have found no other records), and his obit, which indicates he fought the duration of the war (1914-1919) with CEF, and spent a year with Canadian occupation forces. The big question is why did he possibly go AWOL from US Army to serve in Canada? Might he have somehow joined relatives fr?

Dad was a volunteer from London (a bit clever really) who became Major Waterton in the 8th Belfast. He fought through several campaigns but never really talked much about it. I would like to hear from anybody who met him and hopefully have fond memories of him.
