BELFAST
« on: March 01, 2011, 05:25:25 AM »
This is a new thread I'm putting together. It will cover the greater Belfast area from the 1800's to about 1970. Plus some other material. I hope members find some memories in the photo's. If members post photographs to this thread. I ask only one thing, please tell the members about the photo.
Memories are history. Your Personsal history. Never lose them.

                                               Will start with my favourite. St Patricks Church. Corner of Newtownards Road and Church Street East. I was born in Church Street East and all the Stewart's came from that area Church Street East, Saunders Street and Templemore Ave.

Great stuff SAS 2347.
 
Suggest that you "modify" your posting heading to Belfast 1800's to 1970 - otherwise you will get lost of stuff outside those dates posted, especially as the topic gets longer.

ps knew a Stewart Salmon from Susan St area (now Dec'd) - didn't know there were lots of Stewarts in the area - perhaps a story there.
 
also have you had a trawl through here?

Genealogy is like my sock drawer - you find one and its ages before the other turns up!
