For anyone who is researching a family group from Portavogie, Northern Ireland, I recommend trying to obtain a copy of, "Portavogie, a History, Portavogie as I knew It," by Captain James Moore. This is a very creative and wonderful book about an area of which very little recorded historical information remains. It would be of interest to anyone who has ancestors who lived on the Antirm Coast of Northern Ireland, because it descibes a way of life, as well as specific information. Captain Moore also provided photographs of some of the people who lived in Portavogie. I am researching ourWarnock, Clint, Curran, and Thompson family lines, amongst others, from that area. In Captain Moore's book, there is a photograph of a "Johnny Warnock," from Portavogie, and I swear to you, he looks exactly like our family members here in California. Captain Moore also shares some of his own watercolor paintings that he created showing the fishing boats of the area, and he shares some of his wonderful poems that he wrote about Portavogie. The book may be out of print, but I bought a used copy from a dealer at antiquesireland.com. It is not a lenthy book, but it is a real gem. If I ever get a chance to communicate with Captain Moore, I will thank him heartily.
