Refer to people searching for family members of the Polly family. I'm from Scotland and my nana is Ellen Jane Polly, the daughter of Walter Polly and Nellie.
I'm also doing a family tree and trying to find out more about the Polly side. Can you help?

Thanks

My mum remembers the McShanes of east bread street as her grandmother Minnie Whitten lived in 20 East Bread street. She lived on one end of Ashdale Street and Vance's shop was on the other side. A lot of the names on this post ring a bell with my mum such as the Parkers and the Mitchells. She said it was nice to hear all these names again.

With respect to the Mcshanes who lived on East Bread street.   Davey emigrated to Toronto.  I knew him well.   He had a sister I think that her name was Eileen.  I replied to this query earlier today while I was having a coffee in a local Tim Horton's here in Toronto    I was using wifi at the time, and I'm not quite sure if that message went out.  I lived at #11 East bread street until I emigrated to Canada in 1957.  Despite being 86 I still remember quite a few of the names from East bread street.  I remember a few names from Bloomfield street and some of the names from the two streets that ran off East bread street I think that they were both called Abetta something like Parade and Gardens..   Anyhow I hope this gives you some information.  To the best of my knowledge Davey passed away a number of years ago.  I didn't know that this link existed until today.  A friend of mine was asking about Belfast and I looked it up on my phone and while doing so came upon this website.  Good morning from a hot steamy Toronto.  Temperature was 33 Celsius or around 91 Fahrenheit
yesterday.  William Shaw.  By the way I went to Bloomfield P.E.S on East Bread Street

I believe they are two different streets in two different areas of Belfast.  Bread Street I have seen on older maps of Belfast whereas East Bread Street was no where to be seen at that time.  I am sure someone in the Forum is more of an expert on this topic.  It would be interesting to find out.
