Great site. Some info on Roseland Place, which I was searching for. If anyone can help me further, greatly appreciated.
I am looking for old photos of Roseland Place, off Donegal Road. My GGrandparents, David and Harriet Hastings lived at #17, they left in 1874. I don't think the Carnegie Library was built yet, Griffiths lists it as "22 small houses". I don't know why a photographer would take a photo there but if one did I would love to see it. Thanks.

Where to begin. My Grandfather Samuel Scott, (who later lived in Sandy Row)served in the Great War and then again in WWII. He was an orphan so I don't know much about him other than he fought in Italy. somewhere. My Grandfather on my father's side, Thompson was in the fuseliiers. I do have some medals of my Granda Thompson who fought in the Great War. He was one of the first to fight in the Battle of the Somme on his birthday July 1st. I think he was 17 at the time of enlisting as was my Granda Scott.

Hi there,

Thanks for the great site. I'm researching the old Arts Theatre and checking out the details of the buildings it was in before Botanic Avenue. I've found several addresses from BSD on your site but wondered if you could look up the last couple for me as the years aren't published yet?

The Mask Theatre at 33 Linenhall Street from the early 1940s
Arts Theatre Studio at 153 Upper North Street from sometime about 1947

If you could look up and confirm the address and first year it appears at each it would be great!

Thanks again.

John Riddell

Congratulations on a brilliant and well prepared site.I'm not much on my ancestry but just looking up my street back in 1943 brought back loads of memories and reminders of names I had forgotten. Keep up the good work.
I have recommended the site to friends who are into ancestry or the two world wars.

I have been on this site for years and have enjoyed it very much. I can't seem to be able to send an email to you so will post it here. A few years ago I sent a picture of someone in my family who we can't identify. It was a picture of a young man in a kilt and holding bagpipes. I believe it to be in N.I. The only name on the picture was WILL. I have found relatives now who can probably identify him but I can't find the picture on your site now. help please. smile

I reference this site as part of my research for my family tree. I have been able to use the the addresses, names and occupations to validate other records. I have also been able to theroize on how my grandparents met. One lived on Cultra, the other on Cosgrave. I believe this is Tigers Bay. My great grandfather is noted on this sites files as a master painter. Was able to validate on government documents he was a master painter.
Great site! thanks for your dedication

Awesome information here !!!

We play a massive Napoleonic Wars multiplayer game. And that community has people portraying their group as a regiment.

Our group is the 87th Royal Irish Fusiliers! :)
and everytime we capture an eagle we shout out the magic words :)

"By jaysus boys i got the cuckoo!" :p

We don't just play we are very interested in the history of this regiment. To the point where one of our members contacted someone in the royal archives.If you want we can provide said information to you ;)


Friendly Greetz ;)

Great information source. I am related to John and Elizabeth Robinson who came out to New Zealand from Belfast in 1866 on the Mermaid settling in Lyttleton, Christchurch. I can see on the site John was a sail-maker in Belfast. I am looking for information on any family still in Ireland, they came from Antrim. My email is (email Mary at meems@marylennon.co.uk and I'll forward your email to David) if you can help.

Wonderful site, great to see the places my parents grew up in. Just one thing, on Newport Street, you have it listed as:"45. McFarlane, J., plater" the spelling is McFarland. It may seem like a little thing, but it was where my grandfather, my nannie, Dad, aunts all lived and I'm proud to be a McFarland. Thank you.

Born in Belfast 1942 and emigrated to Brisbane Feb 1974 with my husband and 2 children. First heard of you through Exiles. Have been trying to find info on my great Grandfather Johnston (think could be any of following christain names e.g. Charles, Henry, or William) who came to Ulster from Scotland in 1800's and opened up a scutching mill in I think Kells Co. Antrim. He married a lady with same surname (Johnston). My grandfather was Charles Johnston think born approx 1881 married to Margaret McShane (from Co., Cavan) and my father was Charles Johnston married to Sarah Jane Walker 1939.
