love logging on to your site. I found my grandfather on the 1911 census and discovered he had another brother, and also were they lived. The fact that he was born in belfast and not monaghan hopefully means that I can trace his birth.
keep up the good work Mary.

Am looking for information regarding James Smith b. about 1851/52 Ballyvenny, Cookstown, married Annie Ferguson at the Registry Office, Cookstown on 15.12.1874. Annie was born on 13.7.1855 Liscausy, Cookstown, Cty Tyrone. James also had a brother called Samuel.
James parents were supposedly John Smith or a Samuel Smith and a Jane Porter.
Annie's parents were William Hughie Smith and Matilda Grant or Harkness.

Further to my earlier message. This site is just brilliant.

I had the names of two individuals, one of whom was my Great Grandmother and the other I believed to be her brother. I had his parents names, but not hers, so I could not be sure that they were siblings.

By looking at the 1877 Directory, I found a person with the same name as the father of the person I believed to be my Great Grandmother's brother.

The address was the same as recorded on my Great Grandmother's Marriage Certificate when she got married in the same year, 1877. (Some of the Certificate was destroyed so it was not showing her parents names).

So I now know the name of my Great Great Grandfather and have confirmed that my Great Grandmother did have at least the one sibling.

As I said, this site is brilliant.

Hi Mary
I have just dipped my toe so far, but this looks like a superb site.
I am searching for any connections with DOLANS in particular
Michael Dolan, carpenter, son of Patrick Dolan, weaver, and Mary Dolan (Flynn). His wife Mary Dolan (Neill from Scotland) gave birth to his 5th child in Craig Street, Belfast in 1876. I have the birth certificate verifying this, the birth was registered three weeks later by his wife.
However I am finding it extremely difficult to find much more. Michael (father) had his address given as England.
So why was his young family in Belfast? If these names ring any bells I would love to hear from you.
Viv Rathbone (nee Morton, but should have been Dolan, my Dad changed his name!!!)

I found he was there between 1890 1895 but don't know if he was there before them dates or after. Would be grateful for any information. My grandmothers name was Roseanna and she married Hugh Farnon.

I am researching my paternal family tree. My family are Jamison's from Ardihannon, Parish of Billy, Bushmills. My Great Grandfather was William McDowell Jamison. He married an Annie Huer [Hewer]. They had 4 children, Oswald, William, Annie & Freddie [my Grandfather]. Oswald died at Dulisk on 10/11th November 1912 at age 17. Annie died at 22 and Willie at age 37! They attended the School at the Giants Causeway, now a Museum. Any stories, photographs etc., would mean the world to me.

I love the old photographs on this site, they are amazing and in very good condition.

Wonderful info on 1911 census pages, I have passed details of site to relatives across the world. Will other counties be added to the census pages?? Also I am trying to locate a memorial to Rifleman John (Jack)Walsh, killed 2nd July 1916 at Somme. He was from Co. Cavan but enlisted in Co.Down and was attached to 13th Bn. Royal Irish Rifles.Possibly in army before ww1???? He was about 35 yrs of age and a widower with 1 daughter. There is supposed to be a memorial plaque in a Church of Ireland Church in Co. Cavan, possibly Cloverhill area, which I would like to find. His parents were Thomas and Margaret Walsh of Farnham Co. Cavan.

My mother's family emigrated to Canada in 1912, from Belfast (Father: William Robert Hicks). I'm trying to trace a family portrait of a gentleman of which I have no information, but is possibly of my great-grandfather. Photographer's name is believed to be Hix.

This site has my grandfather's address, and ties him to the Belfast cotton thread business, which was a family business.

The information on this site is incredible, and I'm lucky to have found it.

Wonderful site! Definitely found one of my Great Grandparents, William McCORMICK, in the 1907 Index in Norfolk Drive off Glen Road at Iowa Villa.

I saw this property, which has 'Iowa Villa' above the door, on a visit to Belfast some years ago. The index confirms what I had been told.

Can't wait for the second half of Cavendish Street for 1910 to appear on this site, as I know William McCORMICK also lived there.

Have also have found my Grandfather in 1907 Index at 6 Dysart Street, which is consistent with birthplace in that year of his son (my uncle).

I'm also looking for CAMBRIDGE (from the Loney Area), MOORE and FENTON plus my Grandparents in Divis Street.

Thanks for the time and effort you have put into this. It is a marvelous resource.

Best wishes.

Very interesting..among my grandmothers effects was a cutting announcing the death of colonel John Haughton on the N W frontier.

Her mother was married to a William Haughton, chandler of Birkenhead. Have never been able to establish a link but assume there must have been one.

Only info on William that born in Ireland father a farmer.

Any leads would be welcome.

Dear Mary, Could you please tell me how to get the O,NEILL and other Os,on the COMMONWEALTH WAR GRAVES RECORDS SEARCH .I have been unable to access the name.Since I started my family genealogy,I have found your site and street directories most rewarding.As I have worked in the BELFAST POST OFFICE from 1960 [now retired]I knew where the streets were,but it was great after using your site ,I discovered my ancestors were from sailortown and Union /Kent Streets and it was later on that they moved to the Fall,s/Springfield/Grosvenor areas.I have found further names in my research and it,s A BIG THANK YOU,TO YOU AND YOUR GREAT SITE. I have also seen you giving help to others on BELFAST FORUM.

Stumbled across your site looking for info on my great grandfather. My grandfather, Powell Cheveral Foxall emmigrated to Australia around 1845-47. I have traced a Powell Foxall who was the owner of Killevy Castle, Co. Armagh, but have so far yet been unable to form any link between the two. I found your site most interesting, and hopefully will one day unlock the links of my early family.

Hi wink

What a wonderful research site, it has been a great asset in finding some members of our family.

I have one query though would you have any idea where I could find records on those who worked at Hillsborough Castle in the late 1800s. My great Grandfather and great Grandmother supposedly worked there as a stable hand and a cook. Any information at all would be great.

Thanks again for all your hard work in such an informative site.

Good site !
Don't suppose you have come across ....
Robert & Margaret Garvey ( both born around 1860 ) in 1911 census they are listed at 9 Malvern street .

But in your 1910 list they are not there , do you know was the house rented to them or others ?

Cheers
