Welcome to the Forum Patmon.

Les, you'll have to cut back on the wine :D You'll be seeing pink elephants next. Sure everyone knows there
are no dragons these days. Like St Patrick driving the snakes out of Ireland, St George slew the dragon.
By the way does anyone know what type of motor St Patrick drove ???

Hi My Name is Paula M. Shannon I live in Seaford, Delaware in the US. Thank you Christopher for directing me to this froum. I have found it quite interesting. I am planning to take a trip to Belfast and England possibly next June. This is atrip my Mom and I have been planning on for some time. I the information on the Hotels and the B&B's will be very helpful. My Grandparents were married at St Malachy's churh on Alfred St. My mom and her family lived at 26 Stanfield St., Which is no longer there. My brother and his wife went to Belfast 2 years ago, they said the area where Mom lived has all been rebuilt. I want to go to St Malachy's to see if I can find  family records. Anyway thanks again I will post to the proper boards in the future.

Thanks,
Paula

Hi I'm greyghost (Dorothy) grew up in Belfast, left in February 1968 when I was 16.
It's nice to sit here and read all your posts and remember the oh so many things I thought I had buried forever.
I can almost hear the voices. I guess you can take the girl out of Ireland but never the Ireland out of the girl.
I haven't been back, and I doubt that I ever will. Since reading here, my head is filled with memories.

Hi All

My folks and I left in 1959 when I was 5. We lived in Sunnyhill Park, Dunmurry. Great to find this site and to meet you all.

Dorothy, I hope you get to go back one day. I went back for the first time in 2003. It was magical.

Best wishes

Hello Christopher,

This is Dawn. The Agnew girl. I guess I should do an official post here.   I live in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, USA.   My grandmother, her 2 brothers, her mother and father and her mother's sister and family left Ireland from 1920-1926.  All were born in or near Strandtown and Ashfield in Nothern Ireland.  At this point, all have passed on except Gram's 2 brothers.

I am here to find the missing pieces of my family history, meet folkes who may remember those times or know family relatives that were still in Belfast and learn about Ireland.

My mother would like to visit someday as would I and see the places we heard about all our lives.

Thank you for welcoming me here and all the help you have already given me.

Dawn

Hi Everyone,
I'm just a newbie and trying to get to grips with using this great 'Belfast Forum', have had so much help already from evrybody, and it's much appreciated. I discovered this great site quite by accident, and I'm so glad I did. I myself am not from Belfast, but trying to make a stab at tracing my family history. My name is Brenda (nickname Big 'B') (and by the way, in case ur all wondering, I didn't get that nickname from being BIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIG this way, it's cos I was tall for my age at that time) haha.(and I still am - tall that is). Both my parents were born in Belfast, so I'm sure this site will be of immense help. I come from a wee place called Kilwaughter, in the townland of Ballykeel, Co Antrim. I was brought up on a farm there, and have many precious memories of those days, a lot of hard graft, but sure hard work never hurt anyone. I'm married and now live in Larne, most of my working life has been spent within the healhcare sector, within N. Ireland, apart from a 3yr period, when both myself and my hubby were living and working in Zimbabwe (ex Rhodesia). Well that's enough about me, hope to see postings from u all real soon. Good luck in all ur searching, cheers for now. Big 'B'. :-*
