silly ;D bad punctuation on my part, No Ash's, Bern, etc etc
I should have said Bern. ..there are no Ash's in Hamill Street in the 1910 Street Directory.

Bern.   ::) I also checked the 1919 and 1923, sorry none there either, unless she was living with relatives at the time of her death, any other names I might look for?


Mary, I'm having problems trying to look over your shoulder as we are miles apart, but who was at 48, Hamill Street in 1919 and 1923?

I'm doing my best to keep up Mary. I only have a 1960 and a 1987 Street Directory at the moment. I'm doing my best to find others .. any idea where I might look. As I thought though, Bernie has confirmed that Thomas Martin, chauffeur, may be related to the Ash family.

Christopher.....My brother got these street directories from Auctions and the like, he hasn't found any new ones recently. I remember him telling me he missed a big lot of them a few years back and they sold for a few pounds  :o
People now realise the value of these forms of information so if you do find anything with personal information pre 1900, it soon gets snaffled up, especially since someone thought it was a good ides to pulp the census' for 1870/80/90.
I keep promising myself to go to our local auction but I have a school age son and its not easy,  I can see him standing still for a few hours at auction.....NOT

Hi, do the Street Directories cover Larne?

If they do I'm looking for a Margaret Maxwell
of Sunnyside, Larne around 1914.

Its not a present day road and it wasn't there in 1903, possibly a house name which probably isn't easily traceable.

I tried google (just get some junior football league but it doesn't say where they are) and postcodefinder.

Thanks for the tip Mary. I'll have to check auctions then. I was trying local charity shops. I did get the Spectator ones for Bangor through that source. I was told yesterday that it would be better to go to Belfast to look for the directories than trying around Ballynahinch. The local library board HQ is just around the corner but they do not have a computer I can use the way that the Central Library in Royal Avenue have one. I can use the computers in the branch library but they only have the last edition of the directory.

Teresa, unless you are looking for a local trades person in Larne the directories are no help. I'm not sure if the local paper in Larne published a directory at some stage... if they did it would possibly show residents like the ones I have for Bangor. Sometimes you'll find tha the local Chamber of Trade in a town has produced a directory but these ones tend to show trades people only.

Teresa. .There are 7 pages for Larne in the 1910/1918 Sd's. on quick inspection there is only one Maxwell, John., in both, a sanitary inspector, Curran Street, I will read through the directories later and see if there is any mention of 'Sunnyside', right now, I need to earn some money:) later all ::)
