I am researching my grandmother's family roots from County Antrim in Northern Ireland.My GGGGGrandfather Joseph Service was born in 1798 at Ballyeston to Thomas Service (a farmer) Agnes Bonner. Thomas had a brother named Robert, but that is as far back as I go. My GGGGGrandfather Joseph had 2 other brothers John born 1800 and James born 1815. Joseph married Mary Smyth Williams in 1830 and they had 7 children all born in Ireland. Joseph and Mary came to Australia in 1867, following their children out here. If there are any links out there please contact me as I have an elderly aunt who is "the mad family genie" and I would love to surprise her with some links to her Service family. Thanks in anticipation.
