Hello,

I am interested in chatting with anyone that has knowledge about Hugh Pollock who was Minister of Finance in Northern Ireland in 1921.

Thank you,

Michael.

No knowledge of him other than using google, where I came across:

Are you hoping to find others researching his family history or his political career? If the latter, have you checked documents at PRONI or The Stormont Papers?

Hello Scotmum,

Thank you very much for your reply.

Yes, as you correctly saw from other postings it is his family history I am interested in. I would certainly love to hear from anyone that has knowledge of his family tree.

My main interest is his daughter Adelaide that earned a pilots licence and did some incredible flying afterwards.

Thank you very much for the link to rootsweb. I was unaware of that site so that should give me some leads.

I appreciate your interest and reply.

Regards,

Michael.
