Billy and Jim Rea
« on: January 24, 2020, 06:08:17 PM »
hi hopefully someone can help looking for a Billy and Jim Rea who lived in Mount merrion Belfast their mother was a Jane "jean" mccourtney Rea and father Walter Rea he died from what I can tell when the boys were young  in 1955.

 My husbands grandmother would have been their mothers cousin by her mother who was a Bertha mccourtney janes father Edward and Bertha were brother and sister. Would love to make contact with the family as doing the family tree and trying to get photos and stores together.

I've also found relatives in USA and would love to see if they have contact at all with them

I know this could be a coincedience that we are talking about the same name, could be someone different, do you think she moved from mount merrion in 80's or 90's?

was it the yellow pages or old phone books used to have peoples phone numbers and addresses in them? I wonder if there is a website where we could check, I asked my sister who definitely remembers a Jean Rea who lived in Woodlee Street who lived on her own.  Could be the same one
