     Births within the past 100 years arenít on-line on the GRONI website. If you want them you either have to go to GRONI or PRONI in person (where they have special terminals for those searches) or you can contact GRONI up and get them to search for you. There may be a fee. Contact details for ringing or e-mailing GRONI:

Marriages over 75 years old are on the GRONI site. So you can view David Mateerís marriage to Mary Armstrong. It was in Belfast on 21.3.1942.

Good to have an opinion from outside of Northern Ireland.  ::)

I agree. There's nothing like objectivity.  :D

I can do look ups for Carnmoney cemetery.  I have the book and 2 discs.  Didn't find what I was looking for.  This is for the The church of holy evangelists in Newtownabbey.

Belfast History and Memories / Re: remembering wee mcdonnell street

Remember a story about 141 where when rent was demanded old Mrs Ralph used to respond with the cry from the collector "Rent " she would reply "Spent"and I remember a Mr Allen who used to collect insurance money.  Wore a distinctive insurance outfit e.g. shirt tie raincoat and very 50s  hat. Have vague memories of street parties but what we celebrating remains obscure. Think that there was a lot of street competition between kids from local area e.g. lots of yard brush waving at each other. But best of all is is the memories of kids games where it was a question of for girls skipping songs (sometimes boys joined in) Hi lo dolly pepper etc. We had KDRF kick door run fast and kick the can (popular now politically) and favourite was scotch where you threw a tennis ball at each other in a game of tag. Not many street games played today.

Hi there Wilma! I just noticed your post, a blast from the past 😁. You probably remember me, I lived across from you in Orby Road and was your sister's best friend. How is Lorraine doing?
