The birth is too recent to find online via any official source ...


Such a constraint wouldn't apply if you were able to personally attend GRONI (or PRONI) premises and search directly using  their computers.

In the absence of being able to do that, you could contact GRONI and ask them to do the search, but there would be limits on the extent of their search and it would incur a search fee. If she wasn't registered as Alfreda Wilson born in 1929, that could be problematic.

Son of a gun there must have been a stack of bumptious wee men around! But we can't discriminate and leave out the big ones. If anyone knows a tale about bumptious big men from the Shore Road the platform's here and now.  :hi:
  hi dargan, does this qualify?   we are standing on the corner of dandy street ,( i grew up there)  outside franky magees chippy,  it was about ten at night and there were four or five of us,  young blokes boys really, i was fourteen and had started work ,  along came two of belfasts finest:  two LARGE  r u c men all shiney  leather and impressive, 'right boys time yez were home now,'  me being now a working man and knowing my 'rights' i pipe up:  'we are causing no trouble,   we live here and have every right to stand here'    ah, said one of the large ones,   young crawford,  haven't seen your father for a while,  how is he?  and that was the end of me, off i crept,  big they were and bumptious with it.   roy  c.

mankind does not need religion to fight over we can find a million reasons without it, race ethnic differences, you name it, as the dalai llama says the "problem? the problem is you and me" we are divided within ourselves, so we project it outwards onto an "enemy"  i watched an elderly couple go insane with anger at their next door neighbour , the cause? a child of about 3 or 4 was pushing sand through their fence" i watched in disbelief as the man screamed and actually tried to swing a punch at the young woman on the other side trying to remove the child,,,this maybe the reason the aliens havent shown up yet, we are not fully evolved, is that what jesus is reported to have said from the cross "forgive them father they know not what they do"northern ireland is not a religious conflict, most of the combatants probably do not attend a place of worship i reckon, the issue is not dogma or creeds? it is "them and us" the old ploy of divide and rule works every time, and many can see through that yet many cant......

Here is the 1913 marriage of Alfred Purvis and Mary Wilson, Mary was recorded as 19 years old and living at 7 Carlisle Street, the daughter of Alfred Wilson a cutter:

Which reads across to this family in the 1911 Ireland census living at 7 Carlisle Street:

Here is the 1910 birth registration for 1 year old 'Evlin' in the above census return:

CmcG thank you so much for your help and taking time to search records for me.I'm wondering if girl 1877 must of died at birth maybe.

Best regards
Graham


Very possibly, there was a death registered in Belfast for a female Armstrong with no forename, 0 years old, who died on 25 May 1877 (the same date as the birth posted at reply #2). The image has not yet been digitised on the 'irishgenealogy' website, but GRONI online has it available on a 'pay to view' basis.
