Hi everyone, 
                  Glad to hear from you all, nice to see a family member.
                  The story was sad to read, I was moved when he returned
                   home on a cold Christmas Eve all them years ago.

                   Hello Harbottle23 hope this starts your search into Robertís live.
                    Best regards to everyone,
                                                            Billy.

hi everyone,

                looking for help and information on the family of William Reid from Belfast
                William Alfred Robert Reid was born in Cawnpore, India in 1869. 

                he married Margaret Ballance in Belfast 24 December 1903, son James Cecil
                was born June 1905.  William was discharged from the army October 1905.
                 Sgt Reid, 4676.  Royal Irish Rifles.  believe he died c1909.

                all that I can find on the short time spend in Canada, is when Margaret returns
                a widow with a family of three young children.
                sailed from Montrťal, Quebec. returned to  Glasgow on the SS Ionian. 12 June 1910.

                Harold born Canada, c1907 and Vera born Canada, c1910.
                 Vera is down age 1, Belfast 1911 census.

                James Cecil died 21 January 1971, Roselawn Cemetery, Belfast.
                they are living in Belfast in the 1911 census with Margaretís father.
                if anyone could help me with anything, thank you very much.

                     Billy.

The Common Room / Re: Why were people given birth certificates?
« on: Tuesday 24 April 18 16:11 BST (UK)  »
hi everyone,
                   I found it useful carrying my small birth certificate with me
                   at the time. I was tall for my age, getting half fares on the
                   train or bus. still at school then. the uniform was left
                   at home, at weekends.

                   never had trouble being under age getting a beer. cheerís !!!!!

                        Billy.
