Records for Northern Ireland
« on: Sunday 22 August 10 18:50 BST (UK) »
Hi All,

I'm coming back to working through my family tree (I'd only just started!) and am looking down the "Black" side which leads me to a Mary Anne Andrews - she was born I believe in Kilrea?, Ballymoney, Londonderry in 1889 and died in Coatbridge, Scotland.  Are there records for this area of Northern Ireland?  I believe her husband John Henry Black was born in the same area in 1979 - do I have any hope of tracing them?

Thanks in advance.

Joe

I've moved your post to Derry/Londonderry board since Kilrea is there. (Ballymoney, Co.Antrim, is the registration district for part of area around Kilrea)

Where did Mary Anne and John Henry marry? and do you know what religion they both were?

Added- have a baptism for a John Henry Black 2 Oct.1878 son of John Black and Mary Henry this is not correct person

Thanks for the reply - the couple of times I have posted I've been amazed by the quick and helpful replies.

I've turned the computer off but from memory they were both living in Scotland (I think Coatbridge) and went back to the Coleraine area for their wedding. Any more than that though I'll have to look on the computer!

If it's the correct John Henry Black then I have details of lots of siblings, parents and grandparents. May have found your Mary Anne Andrews but will wait until you check your notes before posting any more details.

Hi,
   John Black married Mary Annie Andrews on 31 Dec 1912 in Garvagh 2nd Presbyterian Church, Coleraine District. Should Aghadowey's suggestion be correct then John Black married Mary Henry on 11 Dec 1862 in Coleraine Civil Registrar's office.

Thanks again.

I have John Henry Blacks parents as Hugh Lyle black and Mary Jane Wilson and hers as being Joseph and Margaret Andrews.

Looking forward to getting to look at all this again. I'll go mad if I start again now!

To be a bit cheeky - could you tell me where you are finding this information?

I am registered on a well known and advertised website for searching and recording but getting nowhere fast!
