I recently published a book, 'Green Pastures' about the childhood memories of Maggie Welsh, born 1906 at the Gobbins, Islandmagee. Her mother ran tearooms there and many tourists came to visit the spectacular Gobbins Marine Walk. Your guest, Caroline Rankin of New Zealand, was looking for info about the Rankins, jewellers in Belfast from the early 1900s. The Rankin family feature in my book as they stayed near the Gobbins. 'Green Pastures' is available from Amazon and http://www.pmacdeepublishing.com.

Tracing the origins of the Anzac Pub in Ballycastle, which I discovered thanks to your site, was established by John Delagy who served in the Derby Yeomanry. I am now trying to establish the connection, if there was one, between the Australian Forces AIF and John Delagy's unit, there has to be some significance for choosing that name. Of special interest is that the bar staff of the current owners were aware of the history of the name but only in general terms but how many staff of pubs in the UK would be aware of the origin of the pub's name.

Hi there
Found your website very helpful with some research about my grandfather (Tommy Kinnon) and his brother (Albert Kinnon) who both served in the 8 Belfast Heavy AA Regiment in WW II.
Found an extract about my great uncle in the link to Coralie Kinahan's book - it made me smile as he seems to have been a bit of a character.
I have some photos if you would like me to scan and send them to you.

Dear Mary,

Thank you so much for all your work making this information available to us around the world.

I have found my great-grandfather, Fred Llewellyn Turner, in your transcriptions of the Belfast street directory of 1910, which has confirmed that some patent documents which I have bought online at Amazon are indeed written by him!

You are a blessing to amateur family history researchers like me!

Mary, you helped me in the past with my search for George ALLEN, 6 White Street, Belfast. Today I have found him in the 1943 Directory at 56 Moira St, a tailor. I have his marriage in Belfast to Mary Logue, 11 Apr 1911. He was in the 1Bn, 1st Cheshire regiment No.8850, at Victoria Barracks, Belfast. He was 25 & I don't know if he served in WW1.
So glad your site is continuing to add valuable information for researchers. I will make another donation today to help you continue. I hope other people who use this site will also remember to donate.
Thanks and best wishes, Yvonne thumbup thumbup thumbup thumbup
