Event Note

I am pretty sure this is Selina "Lena" Rodgers' marriage. Her father's name on the record is Patrick, but there were no Patrick Rodgers in Ballymadurphy. Nor any Patrick Rogers anywhere in Down old enough to be her father with a daughter Selina in his household in 1911. Her brother's name was Patrick.
She was called Lena when listed as a witness on her sister Mary's marriage record in 1912.
