I am looking for any leads about ARCHIBALD GLASS b.Abt 1822 from BELFAST.
He married MARGARET TAYLOR
His son ARCHIBALD b.Abt 1843 Belfast went to New Zealand in 1860's. I'm
looking for the Irish connections. I have info on the NZ side to share.
I believe that St Annes's Cathedral Shankill Belfast was the nearest
. Is there any one who can check the parish records for me?? Please......We
have tried writing to them but have had no response..
THANKS A LOT
Does anyone know about the GLASS of BELFAST connection??? They may have
been originally Scottish as apparently he was often heard to speak of "a
wee dram" and other expressions.
When was the GLASS name first found in Belfast?
