Hi, I found this site more by luck than judgement! What a brilliant site. I've found the area where my Grandparents grew up and maybe my Great Grandfather. I'll definately be visiting again.
Keep up the good work.

Congratulations on a great site. I've been in touch with you before; my family doesn't have many links to Belfast, but my work in the Dictionary of Irish Biography turns up queries about Belfast people quite often, so I expect I'll be posting occasionally hereafter. I registered today and I hope to make use of your forum.

Have you any plans to scan in any more of the wonderful vintage Derry and Antrim Yearbooks?

smile Excellent website, full of interesting leads for me. Looking for leads on my paternal grandfather Joseph Henry Johnston - born 29 Dec 1879. Lived in his early yrs in Disraeli St., Shankhill, reputedly being brought up by an aunt and uncle. He left Belfast in his teens, put on his age, and joined the British Army, serving in the Boer War.

What a great site you have.
I am researching Robert Samuel Stevens Royal Sussex Regt. Marr 1907 to Eliza McLauchlin in Belfast. Robert then joined Royal Irish Rifles in WW1. Received Military Cross in 1917.
Also his brother in law Frederick Samuel Guntley Royal Irish Rifles killed 01/07/1916 Battle of the Somme.
Other family is McAdams & Crothers. Stevens & Guntley families lived Harrisburg St, Belfast from about 1915 to 1926 until Stevens & Guntley & McLaughlin familes emigrated to New Zealand.
Would be interested to hear from anyone related.

Great site. Well done to all concerned. Presently tracking a Bethel family who owned a public house (appears to have been 7 hemsworth Street in Belfast in 1880 directory) - joseph Bethel(junior) married Margaret anne Gilroy from Monaghan in 1878. Their daughter Sarah, born 1879, married a wesley anderson from somewhere about Belfast about 1900 before emigrating to New york about 1902. Any help appreciated from fellow researchers.

I can't thank you enough for all the dedication that has so obviously gone into this site. I have reams of info I have collected about my family, the NEILLs, while they were in Scotland and London but have found virtually nothing on them in Ireland until I found your site.

I am trying to track down Ancestors from Belfast. My Grandmother (Jane HICKEY) was born there. Her parents were Margaret BRANNEY and Samuel HICKEY. Samuel was baptised at St. Malachy's Belfast. Margarets parents were George BRANNEY/BRANEY and Sarah STARKEY.
Jane came out to Australia, so have no real knowledge of the family back in Ireland. Lived in KILLOUGH. I will be visiting Belfast in October.

This is a very interesting site. I am back to looking for info on Belfast relatives. Grandmother, Rebecca Barr, and brother John Barr came thru Ellis Island in 1900. I have for a great source in Ireland, some time back, that she was from #4Cavour Street. Would love to hear if place still stands, any Barr's still around and whatever else I can learn. Thanks to all, especially the Webmaster of this site.

wonderful site, have had some success, locating family who live in Belfast.
Though a lot of my family initially came from just outside Belfast.
Though as i search more in my history, will undoubtly find more listed in the Belfast street directory, which is an invaluable source

Great work

Absolutley fantastic site, well done!
Have hit a brick wall. My great uncle is a Henry Carney born circa 1919 (dont know where as I cannot find his birth record although I have found all his younger siblings and his death certificate) His father was also called Henry Carney and there is a rumour that he was from scotland and was possibly in the Black Watch or the Scottish Cameronians - as identified by a supposed photo of him - although its not definate that it is the Scottish Cameronians as the cap badge is not completely visible. Anway Henry senior married a Margaret Ogilby and they lived in the Shankill area of Belfast. Henry senior was born circa 1893 (from his death certificate) To complcate matters further his dad waas also a Henry Carney although I know even less about him and his possible wife/mother of the chidren died a Mary Cotter!!!! If ANYONE out there has ANY info whatsoever on my Carneys, I would love to hear from you, this is driving me crazy!

Keep up the great work Mary!!! thumbup

Gary smile
