Hi. Belfast Forum.
Could someone help me pass on my thanks to James James for supplying information on relatives I have lost contact with.  They lived at 43 Susan Street. Although I responded  with a thank.you I'm not sure my messages was delivered.
I find the site a little difficult to navigate as im not that IT literate.
Many thanks
Raymond Coyle

Hello Raymond,
James James will see your post as you replied to him on a Thread he was posting on and he will no doubt be looking in to see how his posts have been received.
In future,however,I would suggest any enquiries you may have, with regard to family etcetera,you post them on the Belfast Genealogy Thread where there are many experts who are very helpful to people like yourself.
Welcome to the Forum, and one does not have to have great IT knowledge to enjoy the Forum.If that were the case I would be lost!!! :D

Yep,... and multiple dittos to that message and comments,... and thankyou Raymond, glad to be of any small help, as are many others on here,... and once someone like yourself gets a bit of practice and experience and help with sources for such personal enquiries, it can get a lot easier the more one progresses, and even a small detail can be a vital clue,... such as for example an age or approximate year of birth, a religion, a hobby.

The forum is indeed basically simple to use and to navigates, BUT, some parts and features of it can be a tad quirky and nebulous to use until one has got a bit if experience with how it's various features work,... just ask for help if stuck or puzzled and many will try to assist you.

This is the forum Belfast genealogy section link,...
http://www.belfastforum.co.uk/index.php/board,20.0.html

For enquiries about looking for more recent Old friends or family members this is the most relevant and potentially useful section on the link below, because someone who knew them personally might see your enquiry message/messages,... and an appropriately worded and informative message title can be helpful and useful with such enquiry message posts,... http://www.belfastforum.co.uk/index.php/board,93.0.html

This,... is the link to your current lists of various posts, which includes your enquiry message posts and the names of the people in them,...

Hello birdfancier,

Welcome to the Forum.
Oxford is a beautiful City.
You would see a lot of changes in both Lisburn and Belfast I am sure if you came for a visit.
Feel welcome to join in any of the Treads-we are always happy to hear from people like yourself.
