I understand, I was referring to my initial research as to why I had thought that. But thank you!

If one lot were in Belfast, for example, then just select Belfast from list on Left....same for the other ones!

Belfast probably nothing to do with the family.

Census records indicate Mary Woods & husband Thomas J. Larkin arrived in US in 1903. Her brother James J. Woods gave her as contact in U.S. when he arrived in U.S. in 1921 and gave father as Samuel Woods, Gulladuff.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/3:1:S7WF-9CT6-89?i=3759&cc=1921483

Which leads to this family in Dreenan townland- all the children, including Mary & her parents born Co.Derry NOT Belfast-

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

Probably not but the O.P. knows the GG Grandmother was named Mary Elizabeth Woods (26 NOV 1885 Belfast, Antrim, Ireland.......

As you rightly advised..."You really do need to go back and do your family tree checking actual records.".....


Checking the actual records will prove or disprove if she was born Belfast or not etc!! Much better than relying on an online tree that grows apples on one branch and oranges on another.

I make it to be Magherafelt District.... which can be selected from list on Left!
