What we do
- Ireland Project - County Teams
- A PDF file giving an introduction to inform you of the role of the county teams, to explain the structure of the teams and to let you know what is expected of you as a member. This PDF is hosted on the Google Drive of David Loring so if you have any problems accessing it please contact him. The PDF is downloadable from the viewer.
- Whilst familiarizing ourselves with Styles and Standards and 'standard' Wikitree 'best practice' goals such as merging duplicate profiles, sourcing, cleaning and adding biographies, linking profiles to the wider family tree and general Profile Improvement, as a member of the Ulster Team you will be assisting in helping people locate their ancestors in counties of the Province of Ulster. There are various ways in which we can do this, some through the sub-projects of the Ulster counties and some by providing the framework whereby records are grouped together, categorized, under various aspects such as towns, townlands, parishes, electoral districts and census records etc.
- Please remember Communication Before Editing.
Helping as a member
- A part of being a member of the Ireland Project and of the Ulster Province Team is giving a little bit of your time if possible to tidying up the profiles we oversee as the team. Some of these profiles such as the Unknown Locations and Unsourced need a bit of TLC from the Team members. In particular those that have been orphaned for what ever reason and no longer have a profile manager to watch over them need our attention. Any little bit of time you can spare will be appreciated you may be assured. Resolving sources for unsourced profiles and determining locations of birth and / or death where such information does not currently exist will benefit the whole WikiTree community.
- See the Profiles Needing Work link below in the status section for details of what is needing to be done.
- For other Sub-Categories for Ulster see the main County category for each of the Ulster counties. Some examples of the sub-Categories are:
- See Ireland Sub-Projects for other Irish projects you might be interested in.
- It is highly recommended that you start a One Name Study or more for your surnames. It is a great place to store your research notes, sources such as web sites, books, etc. and a place to connect to other genealogists who are working on that name.
Ulster Province Status Pages
- Go to the Parishes of Ulster (Status) page which displays the progress of parish CIB and Space pages and the current version number. This also just happens to be a useful list of every civil parish in Ulster Province.
- This free space page show the profiles, by county in Ulster province, that are in need of some TLC from the team. Ulster Profiles Needing Work (Status)
- Elements of these categories may also be connected to Ulster province:
- Ireland Unsourced Profiles
- Category: Ireland, Needs Biography
- Category: Ireland Project Needs GEDCOM Cleanup
- Data Doctor's Ireland error list
Your own Profiles that need work
- To add your problem profiles or brick walls here leave a message below and we'll enter it.
- A considerable amount has gone into and is still on going on the determination of the correct townland names and locations and the categorization of these. In order that we present a uniform format for location categories please visit this page for help with creating Geographic Categories for Ireland
- Building upon a sound framework of locations we aim to provide as comprehensive as possible a list of resources on the each main County page. Please add any sources for Counties on the main page for the County.
- Irish Roots has a Google Forum
- Irish Roots also has a Discord server. Discord is a chat room as as such is the preferred method of speedy communication. Please ask Jen Hutton, Rich Devlin or David Loring for an invitation link.

Of interest to people who have ancestors in this area - I've found records both in Enniskillen (county seat) and in Ballyshannon in Co. Donegal, as that was considered the area's legal regional center (for instance on census records).
I'm very interested to check out those Ballyshannon Estate records!
Yes in the listing townlands. Thank you! Now I will update my Hamilton family profiles for 19th century who were all from that townland - the only thing I was able to enter previously was Garrison, the closest town (and where many of my family married) but inaccurate.
Can you also direct me to the Islandmagee project group as I don't seem t be able to find it. Many thanks Alice

He married a Gillespie-which is a pretty common name in County Tyrone. I think that there has to be some kind of connection between the Gillespies and Nelson's in County Tyrone as to why he settled in Pymatuning Twp,Mercer County,Pennsylvania. It's just a long process of elimination!

Should I add all the people who were born/married at Drumquin to a Townland category, or is it only for people meeting certain criteria?

PS Drumquin is also a population centre. So I will create the town category for that as well.
PPS Drumquin village category should you need it.

On my father's side, my various lines peter out in County Tyrone at Robert Graham (b 1800 - Graham 21631) and Isabella Wilson (b.1801 - Wilson 72603), James Mathewson (b1727 - Mathewson-278) and Rose Kerr (b1740 - Kerr-1048), Martha Patton (b1768 - patton-6254) , and John Adams (b1733 - adams-46738), and Martha Smith (b1734 - smith-214658). I'd love some help to extend these further.
I would love to support the County Down Sub Project. Some of the surnames that I'm researching include:
McLeavy, Scandrett, Stannus, Titterington, Frackleton, McCready, Gilmore, McCartney, McKitrick, Herron and more.
My grandfather's (DeVilling) line descends from Co. Tyrone. I'd like to add all I am able to uncover to this worthy project.
One line of my maternal great grandparents are from County Tyrone. Surnames Buchanan and Quinn from the areas around Fivemiletown including Corcreevy and Gortmore. My 2xGGF James Buchanan emigrated to the US in Nov 1883 with his sister and five children. His wife Sarah Jane (Quinn) Buchanan was recently deceased, possibly in Gortmore in early 1883.
I am really happy to see Donegal, specifically, as part of a Wiki tree project. My ancestors hailed from that part of Ireland (Hugh Montgomery) and I have'nt been able to go any further back. Please count me in.
I am so excited to see this project. My 3rd great grandparents were Thomas Blain and Mary McGroarty of Killybegs. Thomas was of a family of Scottish origin, and Mary of Catholic background from an Inver family. He converted to Catholicism in order to marry her, and it is my understanding that the Blains in Kilkybegs today are all descended from him.
I am happy to help in any way I can
