I am trying to trace Jessie Marrow who lived at 25 Linnhead Drive Priesthill. I have a photo of my half sister Joan Whyte who immigrated to Australia with our gran in the late 60s. Jessie's details are written on the back of the photo.

Ultimately trading to trace any relatives of my mother Francis McCaskill Whyte who married Bill Buddie lived in Govan area.

Many thanks

I was born in 40 Aboyne Streetr (Teucharhll) 1942 then when approx 10 we moved to 7 SKENE RD,(lower right flat) but did, for many years, longed to immigrate to AMERICA which I finally did at AGE 18, on my own, in APRIL 20 1960. I have wonderful memories of attending Ibrox elementary and then on to Lambill Street school which I believe is now a retirement facility. Prior to immigrating in 1960 I worked at BRITISH POLAR ENGINES on Helen Street in the Typing Pool. Stayed in NY for 2 yrs but then moved to Caifornia in '63. Married with 1 adult son who lives in Hawaii. I now reside in SUNCITY ROSEVILLE, a retirement community.

I doubt any one will remember me but the wonderful Business skills I learned at Lambhill St from Mr. Lithgow (shorthand/typing) enabled me to have some wonderful jobs over my business career: Anaconda Wire & Cable, Hastings-on-the-Hudson, NY, Mutual Benefit Insurance in Los Angeles, and spending 30 yrs at IBM CORP in San JOSE, CA, retiring in 1996 & then moving to Roseville, California. Now at 78 I tend to look back at my early life in Scotland with great fondness. And my long life in AMERICA has also been very too but I do credit my success to the wonderful skills I learned at LAMBHILL STREET.

Hello,
I'm wondering if anyone here knows if there is an archive for St.Joseph's RC school (boys) for the years 1905-07? I'm trying to trace my grandad's steps when he lived at 62 Woodside Road as a wee boy, possibly from 1902-08.
Any info would be much appreciated.

The Everton Heritage Society and attempting to contact any decedents of Robert Parker who was born - 1896 - at Denmark Street in Possil Park. He is lying in an unmarked grave at Lamb Hill Cemetery and we are planning to erect a headstone on the lair. We have permission from Glasgow Council to do so and would like any of his relations to attend.

I noticed pictures of old Whiteinch and there was one taken in a back of 1170 Dumbarton Road. The closes there were known as "The gangway because each landing had a row of flats and the picture I seen next the stairway showed a woman's dress hanging over the railings and a tartan shirt. Was back in the fifties and those two items were my mother and father's items. Felt stunned seeing that and recalled them being hung up to dry.As a boy up to the age of 11 when we moved before the three gangway closes were demolished I loved Whiteinch to bits. Was in the 234rg Glasgow Life Boys at nearby Gordon park church but as moved when I finished I at 12 had to join a BB company nearer yy new home. In July 2018 walking along near Bellahouston park for an event a man stopped me and asked if my name was Bobby Howie and had I went to Whiteinch Primary!

I loved the trams (my mother had been a conductress during the war) and several years ago using a brilliant railway simulator programme I built the whole of the old Glasgow tramway and actually walked every former route at nearly 140 miles. I was also proud of my uncle Tom as he was a tram driver back then. Thought it a great place to live and a compact population and for all that there were slums in parts as I grew I had to watch my Whiteinch gradually diminish. My longest job was in the Education Dept and one of the longest "school boards" in the city! Also served as a JP in the District Court. Lived now in Knightswood for decades but every time I pass along Dumbarton Rd reminds e of a great place to live.

I researching my family tree from both sides of my parents, my father was Thomas Bell and lived at 92 arnprior road Castlemilk, with his rather large family 9 brothers and 1 sister. any photos memories would be fab.

My mum on the other hand is not as easy, i have managed to get as far as my great grandfather but then they all seem to vanish off the face of the earth.
Her name was Lowrie McClymont and had 1 sister and two brothers, Ann, John and Thomas.

i am not sure where they grew up but i will not give up until i do.

Looking for any info on the following: Mother and Baby Home, Atholl House, Partickhill Road, Glasgow - specifically any info from anyone who stayed there; worked there; or was born there - between 31 May 1952 and 21 July 1952. My own mum was born 31 May 1952, to birth mother called: Jessie Muirhead Deans Gardner (poss. address, at some point: 15 Margaret St, Whifflet, Coatbridge). Then, either just after, or just prior to, my mum's birth, she and Jessie (her birth mother) stayed in Atholl House - until my mum was officially adopted on 21 July 1952. Other info I have been able to source so far is: Jessie Gardner was a housemaid at time of pregnancy; she was born 24/06/1926; Jessie's parents were: George Gardner and Sarah Hassell; her paternal grandparents were: John Gardner and Jessie Muirhead; and her maternal grandparents were: John Hassell and Rebecca Adams. After giving birth on 31/05/1952, she gave my mum the name: Josephine Gardner. No biological father's details listed on any paperwork sourced up to now. Few other addresses listed within paperwork incl., 51 Cobden St, Glasgow; 253 Duke St, Glasgow; 3 In....(?) St, Lauriston. But, I've now found myself at a 'dead-end' reg. any other available registered info/details. My interest in this story is purely out of curiosity and my 'family tree' which has some, potentially, really interesting, but still v much, unknown, 'story-branches' on it...currently missing some info. And I would absolutely love to hear from anyone who may be able to fill in some of the 'blanks' to this part of my 'family tree'. x
