Hi, I'm trying to trace my family history. I wonder if there is anyone that knows anything about the Wedgeworth family. Thomas, Caroline and children, Thomas, James (his boat was torpedoed in world war 2) and John. They lived at Cedar Place Glasgow. Many thanks.

Hi everyone,
Just joined today. I used to live at 73 Nethan Street/Hamilton Street. Doing my Family History and searched everywhere for a photo.sketch etc, of top end of Nethan Street near the St.Anthony's League Hall. I've got a couple from Galbraiths end, from The Mitchell Li brary, but stuck for the moment. I didn't know FR. had closed down. Can anyone remember a site to do with areas of people where you could get in touch with them. I've forgotten, but maybe ring a bell with someone I'm just away to Google it. If I find I'll pop back and let you all know.

Hi. I am searching - on behalf of my father William (Bill) Gorman - for anyone who attended St Mungo's Academy circa 1946-1948. I would love to surprise him with names and photos from his time at the school.

Hi, I have been trying to trace 2 ancestors in the 1911 census. One died in 1940s and the other 1951. They married in 1909 in Glasgow, and died in Glasgow. During WW1 they were living in Ronald Street. They were William and Margaret Salmond (nee McKerrall). Also known as Bill and Maggie I believe. Would Ronald Street have had a different name in 1911 or does any of those names ring bells? I was hoping the 1911 census may have told me if they had had any children. Another ancestor died in 1913 at 495 St Vincents Street. She was Jane Boak Gartshore/Aitken/Salmond. She was William's stepmother and was living with her daughter's family - the McIntyres.

Hello Anne

If you Google, The Glasgow Story, you will be able to see the name of every Tenant who lived in Ronald Street, during 1913-14. They have a record of the Glasgow Valuation Roll for that period.

I have had a look but couldn't find any Salmonds listed.

G'day, I was in Glasgow in April 2016, didn't get much time to look around, my great great grandfather was Campbell Roy, born in 1808, lived in Gallowgate Rd, Glasgow with his grandmother Mary Roy, around 14yrs old worked with his uncle William ROY as a housepainter ...
Got in a bit of trouble at 14yrs old & spent a couple of month in goal, when he was 16yrs old got in a bit more trouble for stealing wet clothes off a line, in the company of James Bell & another boy (but can't think of his name atm) Campbell got transported for life to Australia in 1824 on Sir Charles Forbes ship ... we don't have a name for his mum ... his dad could have been Charles Roy who died in the West African Wars 1819 .... been looking to find some family for years but can't find any, his trial paper just have his grandmother & uncle, there is 8 - 9 generations of us in Australia ... would just love to find our Scottish roots ... he & his wife only had 1 child Timothy Charles Roy ... his mum Anne Honeyman died in child birth at 17 yrs old, she came from Fife .... her dad was a convict, William Honeyman but her mum Jean (Ogilvie) Honeyman came out as free settlers to join William when he had finished his time ... while they were on there way to Australia, William died ... so if anyone can help us find our ROY family that belongs to Campbell ROY, we would be over the moon

I'm a Product Design student at the Glasgow School of Art, and at the moment I'm working on a project in the East End of Glasgow. I feel the East End is given a really bad reputation in the media, yet when I've been speaking to locals they are actually very proud people, and have a great sense of community.

When I've been researching I noticed extensive use of buses in the area, and so I though I could somehow use this in my design, maybe as form of transportation of news or local stories. Essentially I want to give more power to locals and give them more of a voice.

It would be great if people could tell me a story, an experience, a thought, and opinion or some news. Even one or two sentences would be very helpful! I want to know more about the East End!

Does anyone know what happened to my old school on Friends-reunited website?... Our Lady & St. Margarets on Stanley Street, Kinning Park.

The actual school no longer exists.

The FR page was once a thriving , with a great history, and hundreds of former students listed, but alas it is no longer on Friends-reunited. Enquiries to the Friends-reunited Help site have drawn a blank. Thanks for any information.

I was born in Kenmore St, Shettleston in 1949 and attended Wellshot Rd Primary School until 1957 when we moved to East Kilbride. I don't really recall much about Kenmore St save for the 'bottle works' which was located at the top end of the street near to Old Shettleston Road. My uncle, John Taylor worked there. When I 'grew up' I joined the police and luckily for me I was posted to the east end of Glasgow. As happy as a pig in s**t. I spoke the language and knew exactly what the bad guys were all about. There were so many really decent folk there and they greatly outnumbered the dross. East end folk were simply the best. I retired a few years ago and wrote some books about my life as a cop back then. If I had the opportunity I'd go back and do it all over again. Glasgow can be a bit 'rough and ready' but nowhere I've ever been matches it, the people have made it what it still is. The finest.

I am looking for a family that lived on Carillon Road in 1955. The family used to look after my mum. They were known as Aunty Peggy & Uncle Bob. I think they had children Don and Ann. I guess it was that street because there was an accident outside their house where a man was struck by a slate from the roof in Feb 1955, which my mum recalls. If anyone can help, please get in touch. Thanks
