There are still ghettos that donít want anyone except their own kind. However itís not all like that and there are areas which are very mixed and welcoming to all.

Belfast Genealogy / Help finding Belfast marriage records?
« Last post by emilykiny62 on Today at 06:48:19 AM »


Iím trying to find the parents of a woman from Belfast, Northern Ireland and am hoping a marriage record might help. Does anyone know of a way to find a marriage certificate from 1915? I found an index transcription but thatís it so far.
More specifically, Iím looking for a Sarah Kearney who married a Michael OíLenny or Lenney in early 1915 in Belfast.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello all,
As a foreigner living in Belfast, I found its people quite aggressive, rude and not polite. Suffered racist abuse by some locals. I haven't had a good experience so far with locals, I am not trying to start a riot over this, what is your perception of the locals? Thanks.

Barefoot Bowls still being strongly promoted here in Australia, was wondering if it is being promoted in other countries, maybe north America, Britain and Ireland?



It's a great way to promote your bowls club and bring in some revenue.

My late father, Jack Shaw [1912-1993] served his time as a ship's fitter in Belfast with Workman & Clarke [1932 P/L] He worked on the original, purpose built whaling vessels, Cosmos I and Cosmos II. When Workman & Clarke merged with Harland and Wolff in 1932 young Jack went with them. Served during WWII on merchant ships during the Atlantic Convoy period. We migrated to Brisbane Australia in 1951 and dad found work with a local ship builder at Kangaroo Point Brisbane. Balfor.

Bit difficult to visualise Sammy as Marie Antoinette!😜

He has inherited her brain but not her good looks. :)   He is so unlucky - if he WAS reincarnated he would probably come back as himself.

Going hungry? Not a bit of it. I follow Sammy's advice and go to to the chippy. Wise words from a wise man. Ain't that the naked truth.

Sammy is the reincarnation of Marie Antoinette - "Let them eat chips"  :)
