angelcalm, JJ44 was looking for relatives called Murray. I did ask around but none of my contacts new of them.  I would still see Jean Lindsay, her mum owned the Fish Shop on the Ravenhill Road.  The Street has been demolished.

Thanks for that Angelcalm.  There were  Murray's who lived at the top end of Shamrock St, all ladies according to the 1911 census.  My cousin lived joined to the Mission Hall, Ravenhill Road/Glentoran Street untill she married in 1963. She did[nt know of the Murray family either. I know what it is like to hit a brick wall when looking for ancestors, very frustrating.  Thanks again.

Angelcalm,
The family I found on the 1911 census  is Number 8 Shamrock Street
 
Patrick Murray  Father
Maggie Murray mother aged 40
Maggie Murray daughter aged 24
 
They had probably moved away before you lived there.
 
regards

Angelcalm. Have just had an email from JJ, he hasn't been in touch, his wife is ill. Here are the details.
 
His grandfather lived in No. 23 Shamrock Street he was Living/married to a lady called Maggie or Sally and she had a daughter called Laura who married and lived in East Belfast.
 
1940 to 1950, Murray John.  Dealer
1951 to 1959, Murray John.  Seaman
1960 to 1962  Same
1963 Occupied which means that there is a new tenant.
 
Street directories might be a help,  I will maybe go to PRONI on Friday or if you have any suggestions.  I will go into Family Search now and see what can be found.

I have been emailing jj44 with information regarding his grandfather as he lived my nan and my  mum. But it thought it be usual to post a little  more detail in case anyone else can give him more information.

His grandfather was John Murray he lived with my grandmother who was called Sarah Harkness (big sally ) she was divorced and had two children William and Lucy (Laura), only Laura resided with her, they lived in Shamrock street for many years
