The Sarah Jane Edgar born 5.1.1908 had parents named William John Edgar and Eleanor Jane Stevenson.

https://civilrecords.irishgenealogy...s/birth_returns/births_1908/01670/1665228.pdf


Here’s that family with Sarah Jane Edgar in 1911:

Her parents in 1901:
http://www.census.nationalarchives....wtownards_Urban/Mill_Street_Part_of_/1260548/


There was a marriage between a Sarah Edgar and Thomas White registered in Newtownards 10.3.1933. Could that be Whitla mistranscribed? You can view the original certificate on-line on the GRONI website, using the “search registrations” option:

https://geni.nidirect.gov.uk

You will need to open an account and buy some credits. It costs £2.50 (sterling) to a view a certificate.

Births within the past 100 years in Northern Ireland are not available on-line. You can search for them in PRONI & GRONI in Belfast. Otherwise you need to pay GRONI to look for them. So can’t help with Samuel’s birth in 1933. Likewise deaths within 50 years are not on-line so can’t confirm Sarah Jane’s death in 1988. If she left a will it should be in PRONI but records for the 1980s are not on-line. You either need to get someone to go to PRONI and search the will calendars, or pay PRONI to do it for you. Any will for Samuel who died in 2009 is probably still with the probate office in Belfast. They get sent over to PRONI after about 10 years. You can ask the probate office for a copy but there may be a fee.

Most of the other information you have asked about isn’t openly on-line, let alone on-line free. It's too recent. So you may need to part with a few bawbees to get that.
