A most clear and useful source material for investigation work into the Victorian period. Sources such as yours are invaluable to children building a picture of the past and the way people lived. We are now able to construct a Victorian Street with the trades and occupations accurately represented. Naturally the so called experts in the various Departments of Education would never dream of providing such a useful resource as it might actually enable children to develop the kind of skills they keep rabbiting on about in their efforts to tell professional teachers how to do their jobs. thumbup

thumbup What a treasure this site truly is. You must love genealogy, as do I. My husband's Fulton family from Ligoneil, left Ireland around the famine. It is hard to find records but this site brought up a few Fultons from that time period. Kudos to you!

A very interesting site.The photographs are especially evocative.
I recently was given photographs of my grandfather and his brothers from 1916.The look in their eyes says it all! I have always had a passionate interest in the first world war and was deeply gratified to find a site as interesting as this one.I am amazed that such facinating material has survived---a few lines in an old register paints such vivid pictures of daily life in the battery---laconically recorded,but this is the very stuff of living history.

First class site. My parents had one of these yearbooks at home and it used to fascinate me as a child. I used to wonder at the efforts made to record everything and some of the occupations. Now trying to piece together my family history the whole thing makes historical sense. Well done! thumbup

First view of your wonderful website. Looking for record of my g-g-grandfather Thomas Miller, born in/near Belfast ca 1790, ropemaker, came to US abt 1830 with wife Mary Burton & two daughters to maintain ropes for new gravity rr hauling coal at Carbondale, PA. Could he have been son of ropemaker George Miller in 1806-1819 Belfast City Directories?

I was delighted to find your interesting site. My father, Sidney Ernest Wright served with 8th (CoB) HAA Regiment in India. He was a Leicester man and was Assistant Adjutant and later a Battery Commander. I think I could pick him out on one of your photographs, also his very good friend Frank Waterton. My father passed away a few years ago now and Frank Waterton CBE died last year. Both had long retirements. I have my father's very personal War Diary ( a precious memento) from setting sail on the Brittanic and quite a collection of photographs and other documents.

I have been researching my Wylie family for some time and at last found most of them. They came from Loughgall Armagh.I believe the Allens family took over when William Wylie died.in 1900 or there abouts.I am still looking for my the whereabouts of my Grandfather William George Wylie he sailed to Toronto in 1906 and I cannot find where he went to after that.He left a wife and four children back in Sligo. Anyone out there have any information on my Wylie family I would be so greatfull to hear it.Thank you all.

Excellent site. The Computer searching makes researching so much easier. Thanks for all the hard work. Do you know if anyone has computerised the 1901 Belfast Street Directory (assuming there is one). It would tie in so well with the 1901 Census.

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?

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.

Thanks again. You are doing a wonderful job!
