Walking the land of my ancestors
A one day tour of the highways and byways of the land border region of County Fermanagh in search of landmarks identifying the old homestead, graveyards, lanes and locals.
This will be a full 8 hour day and maybe more if we get into interesting places along the way!
9 am I suggest you catch a train from Belfast Great Victoria Street to Portadown Station from where we can start our journey. This will save time.
Our travels will take us through Armagh city and into the rural area of County Monaghan an and many more small town enroute to Enniskillen town. Enniskillen is a market town set on a island within Upper Lough Erne in County Fermanagh.
The history of this region is very colourful with much of its present villages, period homes, castles based around the 17 century plantation of Ulster and Fermanagh was part of this.
Based on what genealogy information is available we will travel the townlands, villages, graveyards, homesteads of this rough rugged landscape in search of an answer as to why your ancestors emigrated

A wonderful tour and can't say enough about my tour guide Barbara Ferguson! She went above and beyond to locate family information and local village people to help make the tour so worthwhile and informative. Also with her background and roots in the area I was able to get a much better understanding of the history of Fermanagh county. Thanks so much Barbara!!
