My father's war records show he was attached to 8th Hy AA Regiment as an Ammunition Examiner, RASC on 15 May 1942 and with them in India on 29 May 1942. A year later he was attached to 1544 Light Anti-Aircraft. If anybody can add any more details I would much appreciate the information.

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.

Thank you so much for posting this information. It has been hard finding information on my Irish ancestors. It has been hard finding information on my Irish ancestors so I treasure anytime I come across something new.

I was interested in finding out if you had anymore information on the Bailie Family Bible: LostFamilyBibleInscriptions.htm#Bailie

The John Bailie listed as being born in 1833 was my Great Great Grandfather and he was the John Bailie that was drowned in the boating accident in Ballyhalbert Bay. His daughter Sarah came to the United States and was my Great Grandmother.

Wow wow wow, what a shed load of info to digest and very well done, I know how time consuming it can be. Why is it that we take a keen interest in family history so late in life? I have a lot of catching up to do with my own and really need to get into the war stuff as I have quite a few bits and pieces to tie down and put in order. I really gotta go to bed now as its 5.30 am and I just cannot leave here, thanks, brilliant work, keep it up and I'll be back lol thumbup

Hello,
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.

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!
