County Antrim coat of arms

This, the most populous county in Northern Ireland is also home to its capital city, Belfast, the second-largest city on the island. Most people know Belfast thanks to The Troubles, especially the Falls and Shankhill Roads, which have always been parallel bastions of the two opposing sides. Even more than a decade after the Good Friday Agreement of 1998, which brought peace to Northern Ireland, the two roads remain adorned with fascinating murals that depict the colourful, graphic and sometimes-violent images painted by Republicans and Loyalists.

Belfast City Hall, Belfast, Co. antrim

Despite all that, Belfast is really just a bustling U.K. city, with high street shops, modern restaurants and a fair smattering of historical sites. Among them, the grand Baroque Revival City Hall building marks the centre of the city in Donegall Square, while spreading to the north is the Cathedral Quarter, a booming cultural district centred on St. Anne's Cathedral. The massive, Greek-inspired white Stormont Parliament Buildings in the far north part of the city are also well worth a look.

Writer C.S. Lewis (Chronicles of Narnia) was from Belfast, and his childhood home, known as "Little Lea" is located in the Strandtown area in the east part of the city. Likewise, few people realise that the doomed ship, Titanic, was actually crafted in Belfast, and today there is a wonderful exhibit on the city's shipbuilding trade at Titanic's Dock and Pump House. This portion of Belfast, known as the "Titanic Quarter", is also one of the most rapidly developing areas of the city, with new offices and condos going up regularly.

Though the weight of Belfast's immense history could easily keep you occupied for days, getting out of the city is a must in Antrim. For starters, Giant's Causeway, a 15,000-year-old stone pillar formation along the north coast, is one of Ireland's top tourist attractions. Not far from here, the Dunluce Castle are medieval ruins perched atop a rocky coastal outcropping, creating one of the most scenic castle sites you're likely to run into in this lifetime. Castle hunters will also want to make a stop at Carrickfergus Castle on the north shore of Belfast Lough, which includes a very well-preserved outer stone wall and tower keep.

The outstandingly beautiful Glens of Antrim are a series of nine valleys that delve into the heart of Co. Antrim, offering a place to go hiking, view waterfalls and take in some of Northern Ireland's true natural splendour.

According to the Book "History of Alabama and Her People" by Albert Burton Moore, my 4th Great Grandfather, James M. Smith had origins in Ireland. Unfortunately, the book never clearly states where from. He was born c. 1778, but isn't clear on the place. His first born, Daniel Ulysses Smith was born in Georgia,USA while all other children were born in Alabama, USA. Is anyone familiar with this family?

(Part 1 of 3) The Smith name has a long history in the British Isles, but now DNA and some recorded history says one of its origins is from the north-west region of the Emerald Island. The Smith’s of Cavan story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup D2] can trace their beginnings to the Finn Valley in Donegal, Ireland from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. This Smith surname origin is from the Cenél Conaill [R1b-L513, Subgroup D] who found the Dál Fiatach.

(Part 2 of 3) A group will also found the Kingdom of Ercing in Wales as trade with Romans will become essential around 300 CE. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Smith story begins in pre-history Ireland but this line and many of his kin will move to Wales, then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

My 2nd great grandparents came from Ireland to the USA. do not know when/what port they immigrated to or when/where they were married, but the first census I find them in is as Thomas Williams and Mrs. 1860 Leavenworth Kansas. The Mrs. is Mary Fling b. 1825, 1830 or 1835 varies on census' and Thomas Williams either 1830 or 1834. First son was James born in 1855 Bloomington, Ill, Daughter Winifred b. 1857 and Charles Arthur my great grandfather 1858. The census' list them both as from Ireland, until 1930 my great grandfather lists his parents as from Northern Ireland. The only thing I know about Thomas Williams comes from the 1860 Federal Census taken in Leavenworth Kansas and the 1865 State Census taken in Leavenworth Kansas, I never find him again after that date. I have not located his immigration information or marrige information. Coincidentally there is a Thomas Williams and Anne Eliza Fling Williams in 1860 Bloomington, Illnois Census, they have a son Charles Edward, but dates and ages Do Not match and can't be in two places at one time. would love to learn where they were both from in Ireland.

Sally Tarasoff

My name is Sally and I am looking for James Wilson. Actually the first Wilson in Ireland of our family came from Scotland about 1590 or so. I have a letter from a relative who says that in 1600 the Wilson in Ireland lost all three sons to drowning in the well on the farm in County Longford – just south of County Cavan. His first name is not known but the letter said that after those deaths, he moved north to County Cavan. Clearly the family remained in County Cavan for over 200 years. The earliest documented Wilson was John Wilson who was born about 1760 in County Cavan, Ireland. He had two sons - including William Wilson who was born in County Cavan, Ireland in 1790. He married Esther Coote (also from County Cavan) and they had 7 of their children born in Ireland. The nine of them then they made their way to Canada from Ireland – quite a trip. That was about 1840. (Their last child born in Ireland was born in October of 1839 and their next child was born in Ontario in 1843.) William and Esther settled in Cobourg, Ontario and then commenced to have 5 more kids – for a total of 12

Robert Wilson

This was written by my father beginning with his Grandfather Alexander: Alexander Wilson was brought up somewhere in the parish of Redrock, Market Hill, Armagh and it would seem that he married sometime between 1840-50. He and his wife set up home in a small farm in the town land of Lisbane, Armagh (this farm is now owned by the Carmichael family). He also had a leather business and manufactured boots at the lower end of Thomas Street, Armagh. Alexander Wilson and his wife, Margaret, had six of a family, William, James, Alexander, Margaret, Eliza and Joseph. William emigrated to the Americas in his youth and was very little heard off. James carried on his fathers business and it would appear, was very successful He later owned the Mancheste

Martin

My 5th great grandfather George Martin reportedly sailed to Chester, PA in America from Ireland some time in the mid-1700s, before marrying Annah Cloud in Wilmington, DE in 1761 and settling on a farm in Hampshire County, WVA where he lived and raised a family until his death in 1806. I have not been able to trace his country of origin or parents across the pond and was hoping somebody on this site may have information on George Martin to share. My family lore says our Martin line were Scotch-Irish, which I take to mean a family from Northern Ireland that originally came from England or Scotland. My ancestry goal has been to trace each branch of my tree back to their country of origin. I have done that for all the women who married into my Martin line, but not yet for my Martins. Hoping somebody here can help!

Hi Anthony, Would it be possible to trace the gaelic name or clan name associated with the surname Scott? I took the DNA test and found that it was entirely traced to ireland, specifically northern Ireland. We know that Scott was a latin name given by the Romans to define an Irishman or gael, however, the scottish border clan Scott also adopted the name which raises the question to those that have the name - are we irish or scottish? The DNA test in my case, revealed the former only, so again, how exactly did northen irish clans take on this non-gaelic name, what was their original clan name?

The name makes no sense if it comes from villages in England called Hamildon etc why is there no one or little to no one with the correct spellings for there surnames. There are people however with the surname Hambleton and there are places in Yorkshire possibly more called this. I can believe some Hamilton’s came from Hambleton but not Hambledon because of this. There are other things about the name like it originating in Leicester which I will leave for another day.

As far as the where the name originated nothing proves it came from anywhere as of now. University of Strathclyde tested the Decleration of Arbroath for Boyd dna . None was found. It was interesting though. Be nice if the could do that with the 1718 Ulster Scot petition to Gov. Shute lol I been wondering if there is a connection with my line but have no clue how my Boyd ancestors came to The US.

I would love to know where the Enniscorthy Quinns lived prior to Enniscorthy and 1800’s but have already been told it is impossible to trace my Quinn family - yet Ive been able to get back further than a lot of people researching Irish ancestry. . My Quinns are from Enniscorthy, County Wexford, today and back to early 1800 John Quinn. Johns son James Q married Bridget Redmond (1825bn) c1844 NLI - daughter of James Redmond and Kitty Kavanagh married Enniscorthy 1811 (NLI) Their son Thomas Quinn c1850-1939 married Elizabeth Brien Thomas daughter Mary Eliza Quinn, my Grandmother 15/1/1897 Enniscorthy, (family in 1901/1911 Census Shannon Hill Urban) married England 20/12/1923, died Slough England 1988 . Thomas son Francis known as Frank married Annie Dixon - fought wars in many places overseas and their descendants still live Enniscorthy today Thomas son James bn 1886, started as a cleaner and was in the Irish Guards went to war - was wounded (shell shot) in France and returned to either England or Enniscorthy. He did definitely return to Enniscorthy soon after and then left again (family said to America? Never to be heard from again - his Uncle Patrick Ann Quinn is still alive but a very sick man who would love to know what really happened to James. Patrick has just done DNA testing in an effort to try to find descendants of James. My Mother only knew her Mother and Frank but had no other information on the Irish family at all. Unfortunately mum passed away 4 years ago age 91 and I only found my Enniscorthy family in June this year. My brother and I have also done DNA testing so I know where we connect up with the other Quinn strands in Enniscorthy and have shared this information with my family connection. 23andme say my famous ancestor is Benjamin Franklin and Bono lol. FTDNA dont offer this. I tested at both sites. Kind regards Carol

(Part 1 of 3) The Quinn name has a long history in Ireland, but now DNA and some recorded history says its origin is from the south-west region of the Emerald Island. The Quinn story [dominated by DNA tribal marker R1b-L513, Subgroup O2] can trace their beginnings to what is now County Kerry from 50 BCE. Perhaps the journey begins with the Clanna Dedad; Deda, son of Sen or Deda Mac Sin. The Quinn surname origin is possibly a branch of what will become the Dáirine [R1b-L513] who are found in south Ireland around 300 CE.

(Part 2 of 3) According to research, the Dáirine will join with the Dál Riata of north-east Ireland and invade Scotland around 500 CE. But how could this be? Recent discoveries from DNA testing are unlocking the migration patterns of Celtic tribes as late as 800 CE to 1200 CE. The Quinn story begins in pre-history Ireland but many of his descendants will then move to Kintyre, Scotland where they and other R1b-L513 members will form the Dalriada. This line and many of his kin will then travel to Brittany, France during the Dark Ages.

Lyng

Dear "Lucisfillii," I am working on my father in law's ancestry. His name is Ralph Senior Lyng (1927-), and he was the son of Ralph Valentine Lyng (1902-1981), and grandson of William Senior Lyng (1873-?). His mother was Sarah Ann "Daisy" Bean (1905-1993, and I have been able to trace her family back to England. His grandparents on his mother's side were Thomas Bean (1873-) and Florence Ellis Hunter (1875-1930). On his father's side his grandfather William Senior Lyng was first married to Nettie Valentine (1881-1915) who died in childbirth with their fourth child. He later remarried, and his wife was Lena L. Dotterweich (1870-1935). Once I attempt to go further I reach a deadend at William Senior Lyng's parents, Wm Lyng and A
