County Down Genealogy Group now on Facebook

Do you like to collaborate with people researching in the same areas your ancestors came from? Are you ancestors from County Down Ireland? Then come and join our Facebook community, County Down Genealogy where you will be able to interact with others researching their ancestors in County Down as well.

The groups mission and guidelines are as follows:

Mission: The goal of this group is to bring together genealogists researching in this specific county of Ireland. It should be utilized as another resource; a place to go to when you run out of ideas or a place to come together and see if your family is being researched by another person that you might be able to collaborate with.

Guidelines: We ask that all posts stay on topic to the county. It is understandable if you need to discuss a neighboring county; but topics such as DNA should be saved for the groups that are focused strictly on that.

When posting queries about your ancestors, please be specific with the question you are asking. Also, please give detailed information on them. The more information you post originally will hopefully keep the threads shorter. If possible, please include the date and place of birth (even if it is an estimate), any marriage information, their children (include as many as you know) and death specific information as well.

  1. Hello, I have hit a road block in my family research. My GGrandmother’s marriage certificate states she was born in County Down in 1861. She, Jane, was the daughter of Richard and Charlotte (Agnew) Trimble. I have not been able to find out information on the Trimbles at all….any help would be appreciated.Thank You!

    1. Christine, not sure what records you have searched so far. Here is a link for the death of a Richard Trimble in County Armagh (which is next to Down)
      Do you happen to know what their religion was? Have you tried finding baptismal records for Jane?

      I hope the link might be one you are looking for, but you might have to know a bit more about the family make up before you can tell for certain.

  2. Would this have been the Richard Trimble that died at age 55 in 1900. ( if so would not be the one as his daughter was born in 1861)

    1. I really do not know, I did not do a lot of research on him or the family. Just looked quickly to see what popped up since I did not have a lot of information on him.
