Good morning everyone. I just want to introduce myself to you all. I am Polly. I am 63 years old and live in Liverpool.

I am looking into my Maternal Grandmothers line and she was born in Warrenpoint. She was Mary Pauline Smith (R.I.P) also known as Polly.I have found my Great Uncle who many of you seem to know. He was Joe Smith (R.I.P) the Postman. It really touched me to see so much written about him


I have taken a couple of days to have a good look around the site, before I posted but it is vast. I have learned a lot but also a lot of confusion has set in as I was trying to digest everything and it's impossible. ;--) I won't ramble on too much here as I need to find the right section to post in.

I would like to thank everyone for the wealth of information that is on this site, and thanks for letting me peek into your family history. I am looking forward to finding relatives old and new.

Welcome aboard Polly, you have come to the right place to search for your ancestors. Yes there is quite a lote of stuff about the late Joe Smith, he was one of Warrenpoint's true gentlemen.
His niece and nephew Brenda and Patsy Smith live here in the town on Sprinffield Road. Sadly their other brother Peter died some years ago.
:-):-) >:d< :dance3:

Many thanks dukestreet, particulary for the information on Brenda & Patsy. I am sorry to hear that they have lost their brother Peter (RIP), he sounded like quite a character. I am still wondering where to post next as I have a couple of photos and some other family info and I am still haven't found my way all around the site yet. ~x(

Generaly dont worry about that as I can move anythng that is in the wrong place. :D



But as a rough guide:

Point people is for pictures of people from the town - if a date is known when the picture was taken it can go into the appropriate section within.

Down memory lane is for stories and memory's with photos that maybe do not fit into the point people section

Trains Planes and automobiles
pretty much anything transport related

where and how we used to live
houses streets, photos and stories etc

the rest are pretty much self explanatory - I tend to prefer all modern photos to be kept in the more modern times section towards the bottom, the top sections are pretty much for historical stuff only.

Yes this place is pretty big now but there is plenty of room for new pictures to keep the readers happy :D
