I believe my grandparents were William and Josephine McBrinn (Nee Hannan), married in Belfast in 1921. I have been unable to discover any information after that date. I am looking for names of their children and where they may have lived.  Any leads would be gratefully received. William was the son of William McBrinn and Helena McIlvenny, and Josephine was the daughter of William Hannan and Mary Anne McCann.

Here’s a link to your grandparents marriage:

Birth records for children born in the past 100 years are not on-line.  They are open to the public just not on-line. You can either make an appointment with GRONI in Belfast and search there, or get them to search for the birth records for you.

Contact details for ringing or e-mailing GRONI:

This may be William in 1911:

Thank you! I appreciate the information! I will give that a try. I am in Canada but will email and see if I can get anywhere with that. Thanks again. It has been so heartwarming to have people support and help me in my search!
