description Belfast is a quiet place, blessed with rich farmland and a citizenry proud of its Scottish essence. Neighbours are congenial and warm; they speak well of one another and reach out to help when they are needed. Many of the people claim some connection to the Selkirk settlers who opened the land after arriving from Scotland in 1803. The Belfast Historical Society provides an opportunity for them to study their past and reawaken pride in their ancestry. From the energies of the Belfast Historical Society came the notion of a book of area history in the words of its residents, an oral history. Taped interviews collecting memories of early 20th century life were done by Society member and lifelong area resident Mary Ross—except the one that is the basis for this article. I interviewed George Young of Douse Road and prepared the transcription. It affords an introduction to the Belfast history now being prepared.
