« on: March 19, 2019, 01:32:51 PM »
I lost my nan 18 yrs ago and i am trying to trace any family she may still have in belfast. Her name was dorcas coyle and she had sisters kathleen ,peggy and a brother jimmy. Her dad was joseph and her mum mary. I know my great grandad served in the great war and that he was a plasterer. They lived in Rotterdam street and my nan worked at gallaghers tobacco company before marrying my grandad and moving to london.(john rayner).

Hi Michael72, just posting info to provide as many 'hooks' as possible to attract potential readers of your post, hope you don't mind... is this Dorcas' birth to Joseph Coyle and Mary Clarke in 1916?

OK, so just a couple of bits of information to trigger possible recognition by remaining family in Belfast ...

- Dorcas' younger brother James Coyle born 1919 married an Annie McMullan in St. Malachy's Belfast on 30 June 1943;
- Dorcas' younger sister Margaret Coyle born 1922 married a Norman Higgins in St Matthew's Belfast on 7 September 1940.
