Searching for member of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers in WW I

I have in my possession a certificate printed by the Organization Of Recruiting In Ireland for a Private Robert Wallace of the 109th Brigade/36th Ulster Division 9th Battalion of the Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers. It states he was wounded twice in action in July 1916. By your records he was killed in action at the Battle Of The Somme on 1 July 1916, age 17. I found it in an estate sale locally and felt it should be returned to his relatives or to the museum. No one here has any knowledge of it or what to do with it. Do you have any suggestions?

I am trying to trace some information on a son born to my parents before I was born. His name was Peter Harper and I believe he is buried in \"old\" Carmoney. He died during an operation in the Children\'s Hospital, Belfast when he was 15 months old. I think it would have been late 1941 or so. My father was David Harper and my mother, Rhoda Harper. We lived in Skegoniel Drive.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your site.I discovered two uncles on the Roll of Honour for WW1 in the Clifton Street Presbyterian Church . Grateful.

I am looking for help on my GGF, his name was William Carruthers. He lived at 27 Klondyke Street and from what i can tell was a solider. He married Eliza Jane Estler (my GGM) and had 2 boys. My last trace of him was the 1911 census. I know he was from Belfast and have a photo of him in uniform. We believe he survived the war. What is a good way to research records post 1911 census? I know he is not buried with Eliza as I have visited her grave in Carmoney. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Geoff.

Hello. I\'ve been searching for information on the surname \'Magouirk\', but I cannot find much in all of the resources I\'ve checked over the years. It\'s funny. There are too many Magouirks over here that I\'m not related to, and nothing overseas.

I have been trying to find out more about granda, David Crilly, on my dad\'s side. He was from newry. He married my gran, in Scotland, in 1922, at age 21. He was a great character, and I\'d love to know more about his life in Ireland, before he came to Scotland. I have tried groni, and proni sites, but not really getting anywhere. This is a great wee site, and really interesting, and I would be so grateful if anyone on here could help me. Thank you.

Interested in your \"finding Aunt Mary\" . I have McCawleys- from Co Cavan- William and Margaret of Drumbullion bc 1770\'s (in 1841 census) son William, Daughters Elizabeth and Ann (not in census) . Ann married George Reilly and emigrated to the US. Elizabeth married William Biggs and had a number of children (I am descended from Margaret Biggs). William died c 1834 and Elizabeth later livd in England with son John and died there. margaret Biggs married George Lovett of Kiltrasna (b Belturbet) and emigrated to NZ in 1847.

I don\'t have any other info on the McCawleys :-( (William Jun is on the Griffiths valuation list). Family was protestant- George Lovett appears to be CoI Margaret Biggs may have been presbyterian (in early NZ celebrants were so few on the ground that people tended to use any passing holy man to baptise their children etc)

Any way- I wondered if you were able to blow up some of the cards in the background of Aunt Mary- there is some writing visible on at least one of them that might perhaps hold some clues?
