... I have no info on a death for Thomas Wood


Do you mean junior, as in this one?
http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/pages/1911/Antrim/Shankill/Woodvale_Street/177940/

If so, he died (without a will) in 1924 according to the PRONI Will Calendars index:

Wood Thomas of 54 Woodvale Street Belfast insurance agent died 26 May 1924 Administration Belfast 14 October to Mary Jane Wood widow. Effects 375 2s. 8d.

GRONI has a reported age at death of 67.

Yes thanks CMcG - that's the one. There's me thinking he was a bachelor -  when he was married and had 6 children! Quite fancy names the children had too.  I'll pass it on to my new member of my family tree.

Hi everyone - I've just signed up to this site. I'm Australian and my ancestors came from various parts of what is now Northern Ireland. My great uncle visited Belfast in late 1919, after having fought at Gallipoli, in Egypt, and France during WW1. It was the end of WW1, and he was checking out an alleged family inheritance on possibly Shankill Road. His father had emigrated from Belfast in 1881. I've done quite a bit of genealogy but am a bit stumped as to where he would have gone in 1919 to check out this claim. Or if records exist as to property records at that time. Family legend is, that the property involved a hotel and some houses on or around Shankill Road. Could, of course, be just family legend. But worth checking out. Many thanks for any tips, bye
