I think the Belmores were land owners , possibly in Fallaghearn, where my
McCANNs are from. I found listings of Belmore papers on the PRONI site. I
am trying to get more info about them. IF these papers are similar to

What are the "OS Memoirs of 1834?"
And who is the historian of Pomeroy?
I am getiing excited about your trip ...and what you may find.
