In Reply to: Finlay's from Belfast Ireland by Ed Finlay of 389

I also have Finlay relatives who came from a town near Belfast to Toronto Canada and then into the US in the early 1900's. My grandfather's name was Adam Finlay and he came from a town called Ballynahinch near Belfast. He came to Canada and the US around 1903-1907. I haven't been able to pinpoint the exact year. He settled in Pittsburgh PA area and married Mary Jane Greer around 1911. He had the following siblings that I am aware of: William, still living in Belfast in 1948, the year of Adam's death, Agnes married Harry Edgar, Eleanor James, David, Robert, Annie married to a Robert Wilson. Do any of these names sound familiar. This is truly a shot in the dark but you never know.
