HI JOE, WOULD YOU NOT THINK  BEING IN THE SAME COUNTRY  THAT YOU COULD FIND THEM,  LOOK AT BEING HALF WAY ACROSS THE WORLD AND FINDING SOMEONE.  I WOULD LOVE  TO FIND MY COUSIN IN AUSTRALIA  BUT THAT'S A BIG COUNTRY AND I HAVE NO CLUE TO WHERE SHE IS.  OH WELL.  LIZ :-*

Please help.  I am a novice/newbie.  After some time away I am returning to renew contacts. The forum has been a terrific place to meet friends and learn about Belfast past, present, and family history as well.  Anyway I am having trouble responding to my messages.  I type the screen name or at least what I think is the screen name and it is always rejected.  Any advice?  Am I doing something wrong ? Thank you, Jim

Hello Jim,

Welcome to the Forum-nice to see you came back-we need new people!
Personally I cannot help with your query but other `au fait`Members will
hopefully assist you.

jilly :)
PS.Jim perhaps if you posted on the Genealogy Thread-as your queries were relating to Family
that would be more helpful

HI JIM,  WHEN I GET MY MAIL IT TELLS ME WHERE IT'S FROM, BF. AND WHAT THREAD  IT IS, I CLICK ON IT AND IT OPENS , IF I WANT TO ANSWER IT I CLICK ON THE WORD, "QUOTE" JUST ABOVE THE POST AND THE BOX COMES UP ON YOUR SCREEN WITH THE POST IN IT , THAT WAY I CAN ANSWER THE POST  AND YOU CAN SEE WHAT I'M ANSWERING TOO.  I HOPE THIS DOES NOT SOUND  TOO RAMBLEY.  LIZ :-*

Hi all newbie here, was born in malone place in sandyrow, lived in mayo street for 6yrs then moved to glencairn then highfield drive. We moved to scotland in 1971 at the height of the troubles. My mother was scottish and my dad was an ulsterman, his name was sammy gordon, he grew up down around tennant street and worked in henry taylors/mackies, he was a member of a few bands and lodges. My parents were married in st mathews church i was also christened there as well. I am married with 2 girls and a grandson, have been back over a good few times since leaving and i will always class belfast as my homeland. My dad passed away in 1999 and he wanted his ashes back home to belfast so we have his ashes in carnmoney cemetry. Glad to be part of the forum looking forward to having a good look on it .
