I am searching for relatives of mine long lost but not forgotten. My father James married English lass Madge during ww2 & remained in UK after the war. Had four children following one infancy death: Trisha/Carol/Lyne (me) Stuart. I only recall auntie Jeannie & auntie Agnes, one of whose surname would have been Bell. They had sons only one of whose name I remember was Ronald. Uncle Willie wore a leather corset type garment due to a back injury. We visited Glasgow one time only that I remember & dad's family members lived in the tenements there but sadly I have no address detail. Any information gratefully received, Lyne x

Hello Louis

If you go on the Glasgow Story website (via Google) you will see the Glasgow Evaluation Roll for 1911. Follow the instructions and you will get details of every householder in Commerce street at that time.

Regards

Hello Louis

I have been on the Glasgow Story website (via Google) and looked up the Valuation Roll for Glasgow for the year 1913-14. I found the names and occupations of all the residents at that address.

When you log on you will see a table on the top right . Click on Valuation Roll. A new screen will appear. Just follow the instructions. I found the address you are looking for in Ward 20, page 018.

Hope you get this reply.

All the best

I was born Sept.19, 1951 at 12 Sawmillfield Street Maryhill Glasgow with the surname Leask. Related to Jackson and Kirkwood families. I'd love to have any photos or information that are available. Left Scotland in 1965 and have been in Canada since then. I have no idea how this site works. Here's hoping someone responds. Jennifer.

Looking for relatives of Jeanie Maclean, 2 Parker street, Whiteinch, Glasgow. James Hynman had her down as next of kin when he emigrated to Canada in 1925. Her maiden name was Granger and she was born in Govan. If you have any info on her, Grangers, Hynman or Hyndman please get in touch. Annie (Granger) Hyndman died in 1904 aged 27 at 30 Victoria street, Govan. She left 4 kids Hugh, Thomas, Bridget and James. The story goes the oldest went into care and James a baby to his aunt. There name was misspelt to Hynman

Hi all, im trying to trace my past, bad memory these days, ok here goes, i stayed in drumchapel pilton road as a kid(im no that auld, i was born in 1966). surname then was McFarlane,my cousins stayed across from the school,and also in kinfaunce. wrong spelling me thinks. We then moved to Warrington,then to kirknewton,then to Castlemilk,went to glenwood secondry school.i have 3 sisters.Im wondering if anyone has any school photos of me from summerhill primary(the wee red headed one. name then Christina McFarlane. i also remember doing country dancing for lord provost can i find the paper it was in naw. i was the sporty one always doing sports represented the school at a sports day. someone has gotta have a pic or two. Ok now i also wanna find my kids Father (well she wants to find him) so im helping, His name is John Mitchell, he stayed in bankhead rutherglen when he was younger, then moved down south somewheres, he then came up to Glasgow to visit his friends in castlemilk, and low and behold i met him. my daughter is now 27yr old and has 3 kids of her own, so they have a right to see him, and being a parent ya gotta do what ya gotta do. So im hoping someone somewhere sees this, (he goes by Mitch) and his feet dont av stink i one time threw his smelly shoes outa the window from way up in a high flat.

cheers all.

Hi Christina, look up school photos on the net. I went to Summerhill primary as a kid and I found some photos of my class. The name McFarlane rings a bell, as I grew up in Drumchapel 323 Kinfaunse drive across from the community centre. I was born 1954 and went to Waverley school after leaving Summerhill primary. Sorry cant help you with the person your looking for, anyway good luck. I have been in Australia for nearly 35 years.I used to hang around with the O;Donnells from Pilton area. Billy O'Donnell. Anyway good Luck. Cheers Davy Nicol.

Hi, I am researching the men from the Gorbals who fought in the Spanish Civil War and have so far identified around 14 of them. Does anyone have any information or pictures of these men. My own great uncle John Lynch was one of them.
Thanks
