I have some registers but not this one. Lurgan Model is in Brownlow Terrace in Lurgan and as far as I am aware has always been there. Your Mary Fleming was probably from that part of Lurgan. The local churches will place a notice about this free in their weekly bullitins  as will the local paper the Lurgan Mail on their family search section. I have checked the census for Lurgan and nearby Brownlows Derry the only likely suspects are Church of Ireland families in Union St (which probably would have gone to St Johns Sch) and Market St. Shankill Parish has a newsheet called "Focus" I am sure they would be happy to assist Otherwise you can email PRONI during their closure and ask if one of their staff might do you a favour and check theschool register. Good luck!

Hello Doylers
That is a very good idea - I will wait and see whether Aljepeka's parents know anything about their neighbour and then I will contact the school with your suggestion and see what we can sort out.

I have been having a look at the Proni site and I will try and contact them.

Thank you again very much for all you help.

Hi Tilly

My gg grandfather, George Porter, was the headmaster at Lurgan Model in 1880.  So I've done some research into the school.  I also have many family, Porter & Livingston, who attended the school over the years.  They would have been at school with your Mary Fleming probably.

Anyway, Family Search (latter day saints church) has the school registers on microfilm, I've researched them many times. The films have come from PRONI.

Hope that helps!

You could get in touch with the local paper in Lurgan.

Hello Leanne and Rathmore

Thank you very much for your messages.

I have now sent the book back to the school and they were going to put it on show with various other school memerobilia!

I haven't closed the thread, as you see, because we still don't know who Mary was.  The school was going to put something in the local paper - I will write to them and see if they have done so and if anything (or anyone) has turned up. 

I didn't know that the school registers were on Family Search.... how do I get onto the list ???

thank you for your help

The school registers are not online. The LDS have microfilmed them (from the details posted) and you can order the microfilm from your local LDS library for a small fee to be viewed there.
Please do NOT ask for lookups by Personal Message.

Hello Tilly56, I found your enquiry last evening while idly investigating my ancestors. It would appear to be seven years ago but you may be interested to know that Mary Fleming, daughter of John Fleming and Mary McCann of Lurgan, Co. Armagh was my great-grandmother. She was born in 1870/71. She married James Jordan, also of Lurgan, and her daughter Charity Margaret was my grandmother. Mary Fleming-Jordan died in the early 1940s in Donegal while visiting her daughter. She may be the schoolgirl you seek!

Hello Piba,
That's very interesting!  I am still hoping that, one day, Mary Fleming will be found and her descendants can at least go and see the book at the school.  So maybe it is your Mary, that would be lovely. If you live anywhere near Lurgan - pop in and have a look.... maybe they have found out some more about Mary since I sent the book.
