Lindsay Family Publican
« on: November 01, 2019, 12:33:49 PM »
I am trying to find out any info on a relative who was a publican in Belfast. Is there any way to find out the name of the pub?

If you know the street and no. (in order to facilitate newspaper searches), there's the possibility that the pub name cropped up in a story or in an official notice (eg. sale, bankruptcy).

If there are any images posted above that are important to you, take your own copy - I cannot guarantee they will appear indefinitely.

The only information I have is that Mr. Lindsey‘s pub was referenced in the letter to relatives in Canada.
