Alistair McCartney has send more burial and plot transcriptions.  At the right you will now find – Kirkinriola plot owners updated, New Connor Presbyterian Graveyard Internments, Ballyclug (Ballylesson) Graveyard Internments and the Kells Graveyard plot owners c1875.  Thank you so much to Alistair for all this hard work.  I believe the Braid Museum in Ballymena will soon have all these transcriptions on their website.  They are working to update their genealogy section.  Work continues to photograph, transcribe and post the remainder of the burial books as Alistair works with Shirin at the Braid.  Great progress has been made!
I will shortly have the rest of the Clough internments uploaded.  Kate Connolly has transcribed the later years and I am working on getting them ready to post on the blog.

    We are still working to get more transcribed. I am not going to post any more records until the Braid gets our transcriptions onto their site. Should be soon I hope and I have been having some computer problems so haven’t gotten the rest of Clough that Kate Connolly transcribed organized.

    What Lintons are you looking for? I have a small amount of Linton info -at least the ones that were associated with the Adams family.

    I am getting ready for a trip to Northern Ireland in March. My ancestry will take me Ballymena. Family name is Toland. John Toland born 1824 was born there and then moved to the US. I am looking to find places connected with him. Do you know anything about the Toland’s and if the museum would have anything on that family name? Thanks!

    Hi there, How wonderful that you are doing this. I believe my Great Grandfather, James King, born round about 1856, would have been buried in Kirkinriola cemetery. My Grandmother, Annie Farr, nee King, is also buried there, as is her sister (married name McQuillen) It would be wonderful if you have found any information on the family. I am trying to find the names of the parents of James King.
