I would appreciate help with my Gt Grandfather . His name is Charles Mayne, but when he ran away to NZ he took his mothers maiden name "Reid" thats what he was known as in NZ and that is what is on his profile, but won't work for looking up births in Ireland. I am pretty certain he was born in Belfast as it was written on one of his sons Military records under "where were your parents born". His middle name might have been "Henry" He lived with his Family on a farm in "Sion Mills" near Strabane in County Tyrone..He must have ran away about the age of 14 ? The only other name I can include is that of an Aunt Janet Mayne who had written "Ireland, Jan 7th 1950, Belfast, Aunt Janet Mayne" in a book that she gave to my Grandmother (Charles Daughter) when she visited Belfast in Jan 1950. My grandmother visited Sion Mills and saw that the old Homestead was still in good condition. I don't know the first names of his parents unfortunately. I am at a loss..and would very much appreciate some leads. Since solved this puzzle, thanks to all who commented..
