Elder Graves

Elder Graveyards – Co. Antrim

Recently a gentleman tracked me down through the Elder DNA project. He needs help tracking down graveyards or cemeteries near Belfast International Airport and Lough Neagh. If anyone can help he’d be extremely grateful. He plans to visit Northern Ireland near the end of February. Below is part of his email.

I know that a branch of my Family was in Antrim about 1700 before one of them went to America. I am visiting Antrim next month and was wondering if you had any clues about Cemeteries, Graveyards in the area between Belfast International Airport and Lough Neagh? My “Relations” lived in Artemore which I am told by Belfast University is now Ardmore Townland.
