McConville's in Belfast
« on: January 26, 2019, 04:18:28 PM »
Trying to locate any McConville's in Belfast.  My grandfather was James P. McConville.  He came from a large family....siblings were Samuel, Bernard, Edward, John, Elizabeth.  My great grandfather was John McConville, he married Annie Mulholland.  They lived on old Hornidge Street and later Chemical Street.  Thank you.
