the Ulster man
Politically I've always felt my grandmother's lineage was on the "wrong" side of The Troubles. But it was an odd delight to read The Covenant's emotive language, though it could done with a darn good edit.
I hadn't intended to search family history but in a day I've found my grandmother's home town was spelt wrong on her reissued birth certificate and once that was unlocked a whole heap of information came tumbling down including The Covenant, 1901 census and 1909 census*. Along with it came three great uncles I never knew existed, her mother's date of death (at a mere 33 years old) and sundry information about the number of cow sheds on their farm.
Now if only I can find out more about my great grandmother Martha Jane McCullough?
* is the plural censi, censuses?
