Surnames: McQuillan McKee
Am searching for members of my family - my ancestors were John McQuillan and Martha McKee of Falls Antrim 1901 Census Ireland. Children Mary, Ellen, Andrew, John, Alexander, Albert (16 in all only 8 lived). Mary was my grandmother she married Joseph Dixon (Jarrow UK) and they lived in Barrow-in-Furness. I am interested in the other children Ellen, Andrew etc. and their descendants. Can anyone help with any information please. I live in Australia.

40 McQuillans in the current british telephone book for
Belfast, one is named Andrew - its a long shot but might be worth a letter, addresses come with postal code's.
McKee's over 100.

A letter to the local paper with a few details or an ad
'looking for'.

It is harder to find people in the 1900's than previous, so hopefully some one related comes along.

Hello Jim

I contacted you a couple of years ago. I am now back searching for more of the McQuillans.

My question for you is... what great website are you talking about.... you mention a free BMDS .... can you possibly give me a link to it.

Kind regards

Bernadette
