hi there

hoping to find some living relations to the Harlands of Belfast.

The males Harlands married into a family called Bain from Scotland and then moved to the Newcastle area.

Have you tried a search on this site,


Flick Report 29 Aug 2011 16:35

Try using search trees

And no-one can begin to help without forenames and dates

How much research have you managed to do?


Deborah Report 29 Aug 2011 16:37

ive got a few harlands and bains on my tree but nonoe has replied to my searches with the names i have.

im looking for bain and harlands themselves as much as descendants


Petef Report 29 Aug 2011 16:40

margaret harland born 1897
samuel 1899
mary 1910
sarah 1911

i dont know when they moved from belfast to newcastle but janet 1901 has a son 1941 still living and was her only son

he doesnt know when they left or if the above brothers and sisters are stil alive or have any children themselves

please bare with me still trying to get the hang of this so no sarcasm or criticism needed


Flick Report 29 Aug 2011 17:09

Where were the above-named born?

Janet - surname? Birthplace?

I thought you'd been around for a while, mistake.....or GR's, perhaps

Can we assume that the 1941 birth was in England?

And was the mother married?
