National Family History Month

Week 1

For the first time, I am attempting to participate in the National Family History Month challenge.  As I’m also completing the free online course “Genealogy: Researching your family tree” from the University of Strathclyde; it will be a challenge.  BTW I am enjoying this course, it is excellent for beginners but for those of us who have been at this game for a long time, we can always do with a refresher.

I came across this interesting census record while searching for someone else and it piqued my interest. It was an ecumenical household living in Warrenpoint, Co Down in the 1901 Irish census which I thought would have been unusual in that period. I wonder what other people think of my assumption.

aaaa1911The owner of the property was listed as James SAVAGE who was a retired merchant and looking after this one man were two servants.  James was Church of Ireland, while his “lady Housekeeper” Sara McFADDEN was Methodist and the domestic servant was Ellen BLACK who was Roman Catholic.
