Hi, Great website and info. I am 72 and living in east of England and am researching my family who I believe came from Dromara. My great great Grandfather was William Henry ADAMS born 1831 who emigrated to England before 1853 and married an Ann Jane McKEE, His father William ADAMS also emigrated and was a soldier and probably with the later named Royal Artilleryas they were living in Woolwich in the arsenal. I would be interested to hear from any namesakes with a view to confirming that I have the correct birthplace. Congratulations on a super website.

Hi there, I from Downpatrick, I'm doing my family tree. I'm connected to the McAlister family of Munninabane, my great grandmother is buried in Finnis grave yard. She was Mary McCormick nee McAlister, her father was John. I've been talking to Colum O'Hare who is visited your page on April of last year. I'm still trying to find the connection between his family and mine. Would love to hear from anyone who would know more about the Family. Keep up the good work on your page

My father (Jimmy Lowry) was born in Dromara and came to Canada in 1952. Both sides of his family lived in the Dromara Parish forever (Gormans also). I spent every childhood summer there . My husband and I are coming in the fall so perhaps we can attend a meeting. Regards, Deniece Coffey

My Corbett/Corbit ancestors were from Dromara. Several brothers, James. Samuel and David, immigrated to Canada. I was so thrilled to "meet" a living, Irish cousin today. Would love to hear from any other Corbett/Corbit relatives. Wondering if any Cunningham, Speers, Agar or Pearson relatives are from that area?

Hello, this is a great website !. I came upon it by sheer luck ! I was born on the Rathfriland Road the son of James O'Hare who operated a shop and petrol station until 1961. I emigrated to California in the 80's and have recently been piecing together the family tree. All four of my grandparents are from Dromara...Mooney, McKay and McAlister as well as O'Hare. I have a few photos and bits of history that I'd love to share. Congratulations on such a great looking website, Colum

My name is Cyril Hunter and my son Glenn has just posted a message today mentioning Jack and Vera Kerr (nee Hunter) among other things. I was born in their large house on the Hillsborough Road, next door to the Orange hall, on 24th May 1944. This house was originally owned by Lord Downshire and was inhabited by one of his agents, I believe in the 18th century. My GrandfatherJames Hunter purchased this house in 1930's. He was a small builder and could also be called a small farmer.the cattle byre still exists and unchanged. My father Samuel after the second world war started a building company and many of his buildings still exist. The Christian workers hall was constructed in 1948, the Church of Ireland Hall he designed and constructed and completed in the the 1950's costing around £3000.00. The large extension to the Primary School was another one of his many constructions in and around the village. Directly opposite our house in under the existing archway was one of the three blacksmiths in Dromara, this was owned by John Spence. I remember at least six/seven Clydesdale horse waiting to be re-shood, a beautiful sight. I have many other stories I could tell if time would allow. A letter from Bill Hutcheson appeared in your post, he as a good school friend of mine and have not heard from since he left for America, could you please forward his email to me if he accepts. I will attend one of your meetings in the near future.
