Lisburn Exiles Forum

(Site is no longer operational pending a major long overdue overhaul of the entire website. Thank you for your patience. Site should still be visible and searchable for old posts.)

The Lisburn Exiles Forum is dedicated to the memory of James Goddard Collins (The Boss) who single-handedly built LISBURN.COM (with a lot of help from many contributors) from 1996 to 29th November 2012. This website was his passion and helping people with a common interest in the City of Lisburn around the world is his lasting legacy.

Hallo out there
Can anyone tell me more about a lady who lived at the top of Victory St called Alice Goodman I think. A very quiet lady ,a widow as far as I can remember, worked in the examining in Hilden mill and of German origan. Looking back it could have possible she married a British soldier stationed in Germany after the war and returned with him to Northern Ireland. In the fifties it was unusual for foreign citizens to " emigrate " to Lisburn with the exception of Italians of course.
