We have found this to be a valuable tool for our members, therefore, we kept the old entries. With the creation of our New Guestbook, we continue to offer this long-standing service.

My gr grandmother Jane Anne Purvis born in Arboe Co Tyrone in 1856 to parents Samuel Purvis born 1833 and Nancy Ann McQuestion came to New Zealand in 1874.
Samuel Purvis parents were William and Mary Purvis from Arboe and I have been trying to link William Purvis into the various Purvis families I researched in the Arboe, co Tyrone area before after 25 years DNA linked me to Samuel and Nancy Purvis... Celebration.
I would appreciate if anyone has research on a William and Mary Purvis in the Arboe area 1833 when Samuel was born being in touch. Warmest regards, Faye

I am seeking information regarding by ancestry line which has hit a wall in Tyrone County, Ulster.

My Great (x6) Grandfather, Roger (maybe Rodger) McPike was born in Tyrone circa 1735. I have no information regarding his time in Ulster.

He relocated to the USA before 1765 and married a woman named Sarah Drake McPike in 1765 in or around the state of Virginia.

His place of death is listed as Natchitoches, Louisana, a state which is located in the southern part of the United States on the Gulf of Mexico.

If there are any sources which I could research or suggestions as to where to go for information, I would be very grateful.

I was once married to a many from Belfast and spent four years in your country and had the pleasure of visiting Tyrone on a couple of occasions. I wished I had known the information regarding my ancestors during that time.

Thank you!

This website is a great resource! I have been able to trace several of my ancestors back to Co. Tyrone. My evidence based records of those that emigrated to Victoria, Australia are from their adopted homeland and not Tyrone. If anyone has come across or has any information which can confirm these Australian records it would be greatly appreciated:

Robert ALEXANDER (Segully, Longfield East) b. ~1834, emigrated 1855 aboard the Victoria Regia. Parents John & Rebecca (TURNER).

Sarah BEATTY (Willmount, Longfield West) b. ~1838 emigrated with her Father 1856 aboard the Almora. Father Charles Beatty. Married Robert Alexander in Victoria 1857.

Alexander YOUNG (Edenafogry or Edenafogery, Donacavey) b. ~1834 Cannot find his emigration records however was married in Victoria in 1861. Parents: John YOUNG and Isabella (OSBORNE)

Thank You. Byron
