I have been unable to reply to three people who have
asked for information, replies I sent were bounced by
their ISP. If you have not had a reply from me and you
asked for assistance, then please let me have an
address where you can be contacted.

Marriages in Linenhall Presbyterian Church, Belfast.
All are of full age, Bachelor or Spinster unless it
says otherwise. A lot of text was illegible and where
there is a “?” it indicates that it was my
interpretation of the text. When Robert Knox was the
minister the text became very difficult to read. * =
not legible.

I have again recorded townlands I wasn’t sure of,
rather than ignore them.
