Question from Catherine Quinn:
Robert McHenry (or McKendry) from Ballycastle, Co. Antrim, was my great-grandfather. On his daughter's death certificate and his son's marriage certificate his occupation is shown as Coast Guard. What would he have been doing and where could I find out about it? (I can't find any reference to him at all in searches of databases on the internet so far.) I believe the family had some connection to Rathlin Island, but can't find any evidence of this except for family stories. Any ideas on how to pursue this?

Answer:
Have you accessed any potentially relevant records on the PRONI website? It may be worth checking out the national archives website at Kew, UK; they have certain records relating to the establishment and maintenance of Coast Guard services in Ireland - they may also have some pension records available.
