Trying to find some info on my husband's great grandfather  - John Douglas Mansfield apparently born in Belfast Ireland  -  would assume born around 1875 or just before.  Not sure who he married but know that he had a son called Harold Douglas Mansfield born in Feb 1895  and not sure if in Ireland or South Africa.  not sure how many siblings there were either

so basically any info on John Douglas Mansfield  father to son Harold

thanks in advance

regards

After searching using everthing geneology wise in Ireland.Of course Ireland

Government during WW1 destroyed a lot of paper records too make paper

pulp,during a paper shortage.The only thing i found was a John Mansfield

age 23 born 1877 travelled too Cape South Africa in 1900.Ship

Aotea,Maybe he went too visit his son.Saw several Family Trees

but they all have the basic info you have ,with no proof.I have Find My

Past,an excellent research site they show nothing.I did see a photograph of Harold Douglas,a dapper young man,in a suit his hair

parted in the middle.nice looking man.By the way John in early Ireland

was Joannes.Sorry Carol but you have a tough road to travel.
