Adding 'Ireland' to your title would attract the attention of people who can help with that country's records

What is the 1936 document?

How is she related to you?

The document was Her sons birth certificate and she is my cousins grandmother. It says Margaret Kennedy A Servant, Formerly Ruskenain, Rufenan, or Rushenan Florencecourt. Would this be a Place or her Maiden name? It doesnt state MRS


Flick Report 2 Sep 2011 13:32

Who is the child's father?

What was the address at which the child was born?


Maura Report 2 Sep 2011 13:53

This is the 3rd thread you've started on this Lady, you deleted the 1st one,her surname was Kennedy, as was the child.

Townland Rossdanean parish of Kinawley division Florence Court,


Flick Report 2 Sep 2011 14:06

So the unknown 'name' is a location - as in formerly that correct, Maura?


Maura Report 2 Sep 2011 14:12

Yes Flick, the child was born in Belfast, mother formerly of rus???? Florence court. Florence court is in Co Fermanagh.


sharonrose Report 28 Sep 2011 00:09

Does anyone know were I can find records of the Kennedy family who lived in Rossdanean florencecourt in 1936 or about that time please, thankyou

Hi everyone, Im in Belfast at the moment and trying to look for my ancestor who stayed in Belfast in the December 1936. She was formerly from Florence Court Fermanagh and she work as a servant. Im finding it hard to trace her and would be grateful for azny direction in helping me to do so. Ive searched Street Directories in Belfast but unsure what to look up in Fermanagh.

Go to PRONI, they may have records for Florence courts employee

Florence Court is easy enough to find ....Florence Court is a truly welcoming home, around 8 miles from Enniskillen, Co. Fermanagh. The house, formerly the home of the Cole family, Earls of Enniskillen, is surrounded by a large area of parkland, garden and woodland, with breathtaking views to Benaughlin and the Cuilcagh Mountains. Discover many serene and beautiful corners by exploring the Pleasure Grounds and the Walled Garden in this magnificent demesne.

If Margaret worked for the Coles then you would be needing to find any of their Household Staff Documents...
These are held (at least some of them) at the PRONI under Enniskillen Papers.

Margaret Kennedy aka Sayers in 1939 unsure if married now lived at eglantine ave. born 20.11.1911, think she married in 1939 to sayers plz held trace were gone to by 40s


Reggie Report 25 Oct 2012 09:05

First move......make certain that she married SAYERS..............'thinking' isn't a good basis for research


Reggie Report 25 Oct 2012 09:08

I find, on checking, that you have now deleted the post to which attention was drawn by Flick last year.............having already deleted another thread.

I wonder how much relevant info you have destroyed by doing so.............


sharonrose Report 25 Oct 2012 17:13

Hi reggie i never deleted it, I was told to join to threds together so I copied and pasted them all into one as I still dont understand how to work this site in messaging. I requested freedom to information to the ration application in 1939 and it shows that Margaret Kennedy then had surname lined through and Sayer put above as the surname dated 23.9.1939 her DOB as 20.11.11 thanks for your help :-)


Maura Report 25 Oct 2012 19:12

You didn't copy & paste all the information from the threads, only 2 entry from 1 thread

These are 2 remaining thread on Margaret Kennedy

How do you know the Margaret Kennedy in Eglantine Ave is the one you after, I know you found a Margaret Kennedy in an electoral roll at that address, but that doesn't prove she yours. Plus Sharonrose you know you can't get BMD's online after 1922 for N.Ireland


sharonrose Report 27 Oct 2012 03:26

Hi Maura I done the freedom of imformation act on the 1939 national registrar after watching who do you think you are as it stated that in ww2 everyone had to fill in the registrar and i recieved it yesterday which it shows Margaret DOB 20 nov 1911 and married name Sayers, she married Joseph Argyle Sayers 1945 Belfast but I cant seem to get the certificate details nor her birth one.

Her mum maiden name is Kenney and her dad Joseph Kennedy. She then had moved to USA Los Angeles so im that far at moment but cant find the certs for the marriage birth and told she buried in Inglewood cementry in Hollywood Los Angeles where the famous stars are buried.


Maura Report 27 Oct 2012 12:53

But what proof have you got that she the right one?, and you know where to get her marriage & birth records


sharonrose Report 28 Oct 2012 22:03

The Address on the National Register 1939 it gave her married name updation. I have checked the Births at gro, and on UHF, Emerald.ancestry but cant find her birth and marriage records


Maura Report 29 Oct 2012 11:20

Your still not answering my question, how did you get from Margaret Kennedy in Malone place to Margaret Kennedy in Eglantine Ave, how do you know they are the same person? The national registry does not give parents names on it. You know you can't get her marriage online, you've been told many times that BMD's stop for N.Ireland in 1921
