G'day Ginger. I was a while before your time. I left St. Marks in 1952, and left Ballysillan in 1954, and have been in Australia ever since.

Hi, Ginger. I knew your brothers very well. For a time we were in the same class. Back then they lived in one of the white washed cottages in Harmony. I also worked with your father, Billy! in Glenbank.  What a small world we live in.  Thanks for contacting me .I would be pleased to hear from you anytime.
keep smiling.
Mick.

Hi, Ginger, I note in a past post, you mentioned Charlie McAleer, I knew him. He was a local butcher. His sons names are Bobby and Wilson. They were two or three years younger than me. We often played in the street together, and went swimming in the old dam in the Glenn at the back of the park. (much against our mothers' wishes) Can you tell me if they are still around??????????????????????????.
It is nice to hear about the people from way back then.
Keep smiling.
Mick. (Norman)

For reasons far beyond my comprehension I found myself browsing this forum last night and it looks like I have stumbled across a family mystery which I knew nothing about.

My grandfather whom I was named after, was Bobby Todd and my grandmother was Frances Todd better known as Lalla and they also lived in Lavens drive so it looks like I am related to Udini and Jacquismith87. Maybe 2nd cousins.

At this stage I have no answers to the Smith/Todd mystery but I know my sister has done extensive research with the family tree and managed to go back quite a few generations.

I am currently back in N.I. visiting family and will take the opportunity to speak to my uncle Jack and aunt Roberta (Bobby's son and daughter) to see if they can shed some light on the subject. Unfortunately my father Howard passed away last year and this sort of thing would have been right up his street.

Jacquismith87 please feel free to pm me, I will put you in touch with my sister who has all the info on the family tree
Robert  I have sent you a PM

Hello everyone,

Just enquiring if anyone knew an Andrew Todd from Abbeydale crescent, Crumlin road facing the Ballysillan road.

Andrew was also called Andy.

I've lost contact this past 40 years and I haven't a clue where he lives now.

Any help appreciated.

Hi, I hope someone can help.
I am trying to find my grandfathers family history.
We believe that his mother and father Mary and John Coyle lived in the Ligoniel area.
My Aunt remembers going to visit sometime around the 1950s.
I cannot find any record of them in the ancestry website.
