During my visit to Ireland last month I managed to copy all the Cree entries from the birth and marriage indexes at the General Register Office, Belfast (GRONI), which took me almost two full 6-hour days. I have now typed these into spreadsheets which I have uploaded to the Datasets section of the Cree Surname web site at http://www.cree.name/indexes/ire.htm alongside the Cree marriages which I extracted last year. This will hopefully give a further boost to the construction of family trees which Trevor Cee, Adam Trevor Cree, Leonard Cree and others are actively engaged in at the moment. It was good to meet both Leonard and Adam while I was in Ireland, We had some good discussions and both agreed to take the Genealogy DNA test to see if we can link their Northern Ireland ancestry to other lines, whether in County Down, the USA or Scotland. We all await the results with interest.
