Belfast Genealogy / Re: French Family.
« Last post by wavey davey on Today at 12:59:52 PM »

Hi all
Just chanced upon this thread re French Surname. My grand mother was baptised Letitia French Waterworth. She was born on the 14 February 1895 to David Waterworth and Catherine Smeeth, at Valentine Street Belfast (under the shadow of Gallagher’s Tobacco Factory).
The Waterworth family group seemed to be in the habit of using surnames from other close family members but I have not found a union between a Waterworth and French Yet.
It took some time to find her in the Census of Ireland  as French had been misspelled.
All the best with your own research.
David

God save us. I know what goes on. I have heard stories from 'the girls' them selves.

See, if people would work as hard to eradicate modern day slavery as they do to the past it would be done away with completely!


You got that right belle,... I guess that it all comes down to what people and governments choose to prioritise,... being Belfast and Ireland though, should it not be surprising that the various churches/denominations don't seem to be as proactive in that regard as they perhaps could be,... and arguably should be.  ???


100 Percent right.  We could all do more to be fair. Rasing awareness is a good start. The so called Independent Hookers could start by not advertising and using the convicted pimp families website for a start. Its posts like this that make me wonder are they stupid or is it a pimp posing as a hooker posting this tripe.  I can not believe for one minute that a female would attack a organisation that helps females who have been abused.  Perhaps a member of the press could ask this individial the next time she tours in belfast which according to herself will be soon.  https://www.escort-ireland.com/boards/threads/198523-The-Irish-examiner?p=2029504#post2029504

JJ I know that they were wanted  but the victims ,the babies grew up not knowing the true circumstances of their adoptions  and probably thinking that they were not wanted . I didn't  mean to say they were not wanted . so sorry for any misunderstanding .  The Mothers were victims of the cruelty and uncaring institutions who made money out of their misery  and as we have said paperwork was falsified and the children were just taken away . how would anyone ever get over that?

You're absolutely right about all of that, but lets also remember, that they weren't unwanted, certainly not always by their birth mothers, even if perhaps by society, but with their mothers it was often the complete opposite, but they weren't able or allowed to do what they often probably would have wanted to do,... and they certainly were wanted by the families who adopted many of them.

Biased judgementalism caused all of that,... and that's not as prevalent about as many issues and situations as it used to be,... but we're still very far from being free of such attitudes about a range of issues and situations.

Flipping Heck i sincerely hope your aunt finds some closure and peace.. give her an extra hug. I had a similar situation with a dear friend but to no avail  as JJ said many records were falsified, hope you have better luck. my heart goes out to all involved who were put  in these homes, born in these homes. no words of comfort would be enough  just feeling love for them all..  hope many find peace.no one ever wants to feel that they are/ were unwanted.
