Keep checking your information

Fifteen years ago I started family history and in the last five years so much information has become available, it is worthwhile rereading and rechecking your information. the subject of women not being named on historical file is a big bone of contention, even modern historians forget to give their female relatives their maiden names using only their married names and yet it is one of the most helpful ways of knowing you are following the correct line, it really becomes easier when the female maiden name is introduced to the childrens line.

I have been researching McKittrick, McKitterick family and I have come to a brick wall with William McKittrick, I cannot find his birth, or marriage, he died in 1870 aged 64 making his birth approx 1806. He probably was born in Ireland in Co Down, he died in Dundonald, Co. Down, his father was probably John McKittrick but I have no evidence to support this, if any one is researching McKittrick in Down I would be pleased to hear from them.

I can offer extensive research material of McKittricks in Tyrone, Armagh, Antrim, Belfast area,also England happy to pass information that can help.
