For those who are interested in Military History then the Commonwealth War Graves Commission site has a "Debt of Honour Register" which, is the Commission's database listing the 1.7 million men and women of the Commonwealth forces who died during the two world wars and the 23,000 cemeteries, memorials and other locations world-wide where they are commemorated. This is a free search and there are 5 McIlrees' listed on the site:

Alexander McIlree - Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers (My Great Uncle)
H McIlree - Royal Irish Rifles
J W McIlree - Canadian Infantry (Central Ontario Regt.)
Richard McIlree - Seaforth Highlanders
William McIlree - Naval Auxiliary Personnel (M.N.) - this is an interesting one as William was a Second Baker on the H.M.S. Transylvania, which was sunk by a U-Boat of the North West Coast of Ireland.

The site also has details of the cemeteries and memorials. It can be found at:


The Social Security Death Index Interactive Search at Roots Web has in excess of 71 million records and on my last search (October 2007) produced 70 entries for McIlree in the USA. The site can be found at: and searches are free.


The Ulster Covenant The archive of the Ulster Unionist Council, held by the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland (PRONI), contains just under half a million original signatures and addresses of the men who, on 28 September 1912, signed the Ulster Covenant, and of the women who signed the parallel Declaration. In total, the Covenant was signed by 237,368 men, and the Declaration by 234,046 women. The names and signatures have been scanned and digitised and can be searched at

There are 32 McIlree signatures to be found along with addresses (some addresses are vague).


Cyndi's List An excellent site linking to virtually every other major genealogy site.

The Townland Database
This will help you to find towns, baroneys and parishes in Ireland.

County Tyrone My latest find is this fine site by Linda Bailey with lots of good information and a most extensive surname log. Included on the site are photographs, church records, Parish information and many other interesting features. Well worth a visit but don't be surprised if you end up spending a few hours looking at it.

Medals This link is to the National Archive site, which allows a search for soldiers who have been awarded medals. The initial search is free but payment is needed to see the medal record details. The link below is a search for all McIlrees' with medals.

Emigration This is an interesting site with many good features on emigration. and a lot of links to worthwhile information on using Ships Passenger Lists and finding out what records are available and where to find them.
