Thank you, James for the above information.  Just so that I am clear, is Henry B., the sword owner, is the son of Samuel of Newtonards?

Sorting out the Irish ancestors is always a challenge.  To many important documents were burnt during the uprising.

Welcome to our group, James.

Was 'your' Samuel husband of Agnes Johnston ; father of Henery b. 28 Sep & bpt. 29 Oct 1844 & Hugh b. 15 Nov & bpt. 28 Dec 1845 at 1st Newtownards Presbyterian Church?
I regret that is all I have.

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
