James O'Hara - Baker
« on: Wednesday 08 February 06 02:56 GMT (UK) »
James O'Hara was the brother of my gg Grandmother Sarah. He started a bakery about 1890's with a brother.  I took some notes when I was over in Belfast last october but now can't find them. Can someone lookup and find me the name of his brother and just when the bakery was started?
Thanks

Hi,
I am still trying to plot a course through history for the O'Hara's of the Bakery in Belfast. I have had a measure of success with the SD's of PRONI and Mary Lennon Wylie.

I still would like some gaps filled (wouldn't we all!)

The specifics are Thomas, James & William James O'Hara in Sd's from 1902 - 1909 incl and after 1911. They are all listed as being Bakers of course
 I have a gap from 1877 - 1884 as well and a Sarah or sarah Jane O'Hara from 1870 - 1875.

Thanks in advance

Going through older posts and came across this one. By now you might have been able to find more information but if you haven't done so the following might be of interest.

PRONI has Will Extracts online which list address, date of death and occupation in most cases. Searching for O'Hara with baker in full extracts box brings up one entry- "O'Hara Jessie P. of 551 Springfield Road Belfast died 23 June 1941 Administration Belfast 23 September to William James O'Hara baker the husband. Effects 270 19s." You could try searching for other relatives just by using names, addresses, etc.

The civil registration index is now also online- goes up to 1921 for Northern Ireland counties:

Belfast City Council has just launched a database of searchable burial records from some of their cemeteries which might be worth checking-

Away sorting out DNA matches... I may be gone for some time many years!
