Good morning
I am looking information about my Grandfather and Grandmother John McFarlane and Isabella Carmichel.
1911 Census my granddad aged 6 lived 16 Ballyclare Street Belfast.
His father John Blair McFarlane lived in Scotland Polockshaw died in the 1WW December 1914.

Isabella Carmicheal I think she was born 1907 lived in Montreal Street Belfast.
John was the brother of Hugh Hill McFarlane and sister in law Madeline Brickley.

HELLO EVERYONE!

I am just researching my family tree after losing my own Mother last October at the age of 58. Sadly - she never knew many details, neither do her living brothers & sisters. What I really wanted to know to get any further was my Great GrandMother's maiden name, so I applied for a duplicate birth certificate for my Grandmother which arrived this morning. Teresa McCann... her Mother was Ellen Bradley who married Thomas McCann and they were from Belfast. When my Grandmother Teresa was born, they lived at 5 Baker Street according to the birth certificate...

I'm struggling to get any further... I've googled and come across a few Thomas McCanns. Which brings me to this forum. I'm a member of Ancestry.co.uk but I can't seem to get any further - when I think I've found aa match for Ellen McCann (nee Bradley) and Thomas McCann having children on a census - two of which match names of the siblings of my GrandMother the dates don't add up as her parents would be late 50's by the time they had her in 1927? I'm so confused...

If anyone can shed any light on Thomas McCann & Ellen McCann (Bradley), 5 Baker Street around 1927? Apparently my Great Grandma McCann was illiterate, worked in a linen factory after leaving school at 8 years old and that factory may have supplied the Titanic (this is what my Uncle thinks?)

Hi Sheryl

You can pick up some information at irishgenealogy.ie for free.  Thomas and Ellen were married in St Peters Belfast on 29th September 1920 they both lived in Baker Street at the time.  Her father's name was Richard and he was a labourer.  Thomas dad was a butcher but had passed when they married.  You will be able to find any births and deaths of the family on this site.

You can also search for Baker Street on the Lennon Wylie site which has a good few street directories again for free.

Best wishes on your search.

Hi Sheryl

Yes I found the marriage on the Irish Genealogy site but you can search for more records easily there.  You should also look for them in the 1901 and 1911 census on the National Archives of Ireland site.  I believe the joy to researching your family history is in finding new discoveries so happy hunting. 

However if you require some more advice or help don't be afraid to ask.

Regards

Jim

Add some dates/ages/addresses,... from the information and documents that you already have,... and religious denominations if you know them.
