Hi. Found your site while doing some research on the McNeill family tree. Was looking for my grandfather who survived both world wars. (James Bristow McNeill) Born in Bushmills and lived in Sherwood street Belfast before marrying and moving to Ballyclare. I have no idea which regiment he was in. Possibly the same as his brother. I found his brother Robert Boyd McNeill who, according to your statistics, died on 1st July 1917. We always thought he died on 1st July 1916. I will have to try and find out more unless you can shed more light on it.
Very well done.
Hill.

Hi
I often dip into your website. Our family used to holiday in Bangor in the sixties when it was a proper seaside resort, I have magical memories if it then. I was delighted to com across your Bangor Street Directory of 1965, it listed two of the places we used to stay in.
Best regards and good luck with the site

Hi Mary, I have used your wonderful site before researching on behalf of my now deceased sister, it was so helpful to find out where he was commemorated -before she died we to her to see the memorial in Surrey.

Trying to trace my great, great grandfather Daniel Russell married to Sarah Wilkinson in 1844. We know from marriage certs that he was deceased by Aug 1871. He was a seaman/ sailor and am well and truly stuck any help, pointers would be gratefully accepted.

Keep up the excellent work

Our Caldwells were Presb.in Belfast, skilled Wallpaper craftsmen for the Moses Staunton Co. who paid their passage to Toronto, in 1866 to work in a branch there. George Caldwell and wife Sarah Eliza (nee Thompson) were m.in Belfast, and George had been bapt. at The Rosemary St. Church there in 1825.

George's father was John Calwell Caldwell was a tailor from Millfield; his wife was Rachel Walker, dau. of Hugh a weaver from Dorchester England.

I have only found the one marriage record of George and Sarah Elizabeth and their children's baptism. I am looking for more information.

Hi there,

Just a request for 45 newport street you have misspelled our families last name. It's spelled McFarland, any chance of a correction? Thank you in advance.


Reply: Hi Liz, it is quite possible I have misspelled your family name and I will gladly change it, it is also possible that the name was spelled differently in the directory or even misspelled by the transcriber, I can't know which is the case as you haven't told me which year, I could look through every year I have online but with over 200 emails in my inbox I just don't have the time, the problem is you haven't given me an email address so I can't contact you, if you read this please email me again please with your own email address this time, thank you :)

Researching the Townawilly evictions and the Royal Free School Raphoe, James Wilson Tops Raphoe brought me to your site. In the Boards Report of 1909 James Wilson has carried out his intention of providing for Scholarship to be competed for by the pupils of the School, as stated in last year’s report, by handing to the Board the sum £200 to be invested by them for this purpose. It was to be known as Wilson (Tops) Scholarship; £5 to be awarded to boys and the remainder to girls in accordance with rules to be adopted by the Board. smile

Researching name of church for CAIRNS marriage. On their Certificate it says: Solemnized in the "Luther Church", Parish of Shankill, City of Belfast. Married by Rector ???? (can't read his name) of Shankill Rectory, Belfast May 1943. That is all I can read.
Do you know a "Luther Church" in the Parish of Shankill in 1943 and why is it put with Church of Ireland. We all are Church of Ireland. Also name of Rector of Shankill Rectory in 1943. Is "Luther" the name of the church of ireland and where is it located. I do know it is definitely not a "Lutheran" religious church. Hope you can help.

I have managed to find his parents, married in St Finbarr's RC Church, South Parish, Cork on 30 Apr 1876.

So glad your site is continuing to add valuable information for researchers. I will make a donation today to help you continue. I hope other people who use this site will also remember to donate.
