Wonderful site. I was attracted due to your Keenan family tree. I had a hard time finding where your Keenan's originated. I have been trying to track my Keenan roots in County Down (Ards Penninsula) for quite some time. My ggg grandparents; Felix and Sarah (McQuoid) Keenan;b. 1814/1809;IRL had a son, John who was baptized in Kircubbin, Co. Down in 1835. Felix and family immigrated to the Dearham, Cumberland, ENG area about 1845.
If you see a connection, drop me a line. Keep up the good work.
Best regards,
Chuck Keenan

My husband's Caldwell Ancestors were brought to Toronto about 1866 reportedly by the Moses Staunton & Son - Wallpaper company from Belfast. His 3 X great grandfather went to Belfast from Glascow as a teenager to appretice in the trade. He and his family went to Toronto about 1866 and in 1870 the Robertson & Cooks Toronto City Directory showed him as "head block cutter & designer at M. Staunton & Son. Also listed working for the company were two sons listed as an "engineer" and "blockprinter." The family continued in the wallpaper business in Toronto, Buffalo, NY, New Brunswich, N.J. and through the early 1900'ds in York, PA.

You are a pedantic and patient person to take the time to do this.

This site is beyond excellent! I heard that the family owned a store in Belfast, but never had any proof of it until I found your site. They owned the McCartin Store on Smithfield. It was a hardware store. I hope you might be able to help me. My great-grandfather left Belfast in 1916 with his wife and grandfather. He left his mother and many siblings, but I can't locate them past the 1911 census. Would you mind looking to see if you have anything for a James or Patrick McCartin? Any Ann Jane, John or Vera Gallagher's? Thank you so much!! I keep thinking if I can see how long the store lasted, I might know how long they stayed in the area. I can't find any McCartin's in the directories for now. smile

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.
