Family History Beginners Board / First Bangor Presbyterian Church
« on: Thursday 07 February 19 15:45 GMT (UK)  »
I've found out that the Marriage Registers for the First Bangor Church are on microfilm at Irelands Public Record Office.  Will that be the only place that has a copy?

Can anybody improve this?

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Residence of Informant
« on: Wednesday 08 May 13 05:14 BST (UK)  »
On my great grandmothers death record, the first line of the residence of the informant (her husband), "if out of the house in which the death occurred", is obviously the name of the registrar (Wm Ganick?), which I thought unusual but I can't make out the next two lines.
She died some distance from where I thought they were living.  As she died in 1886 at a place near to the main road, and according to the census the family arrived in England between then and 1891, is it possible that they had started their journey, and therefore didn't have a "residence" when she died?
I thought the other two words might give me a clue, if I knew what they were.

I'm having trouble making out some of the words.
The most intersesting parts for me would be her mothers maiden name, and "residence if out of the house where death occurred".  She died in Cults, Inch Parish, but 6 months previously she had given birth to my grand father in Auchnotteroch, Leswalt Parish, and we thought that was the last place the family lived before moving to England.
The other things I can't make out are the time of her death (? ho 0m AM), and the medical attendant by whom certified (___ by Hugh Cochrane ___ & ___ Stranraer (?))

Wigtownshire / Loch Ryan Cemetery
« on: Thursday 18 April 13 20:48 BST (UK)  »
Before she died, an aunt of mine wrote a simple family tree.  She said that her grandparents were living on a farm in Leswalt, and that her grandmother, Jane Cunningham (nee Murdoch), died between 1897 and 1901, and was buried in "... the cemetery beside Loch Ryan (Stranraer) ..."
Can't seem to find a cemetery near Leswalt AND Loch Ryan.  Any ideas?

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Rergister of Corected Entries
« on: Tuesday 27 December 11 08:39 GMT (UK)  »
My great grandfather had his name changed when he was baptised, and I have obtained an image of the entry in the "Register of Corrected Entries", dated September 15th 1873.
There is a note at the top of the page which I cannot read, and which appears to be dated 6 February 1874.  Any ideas?
