Townlands of Drumderg, Dunmurry and Glebe in the Parish of Ballynascreen
This material was produced for a talk that I gave to Ballynascreen Historical Society in 2009 on researching townlands in Ballynascreen parish. The townlands of Drumderg, Dunmurry and Glebe were chosen as exemplars.
Below you will find links to a number of sources relating to the three townlands in the parish. These sources should enable you to trace families and properties within each of these townlands from the 1830s to the early twentieth century.
I also used civil and church records to research some of the families in Drumderg and Dunmurry. See the paper on Researching Families in Drumderg and Dunmurry before 1922. See also - some Drumderg Marriages 1857-1899 and some Dunmurry Marriages 1854-1890.
