Hi, I was born and lived in Glasgow until I was married.(1967 - 1993) Moved around a bit as a child but lived longest in a tenement in Woodlands Dive in the West End. Fond memories of walking to the university cafe in Byres road for an ice cream.
Looking for help in finding a photo (if one exists) My stepmum's parents recently passed away. They worked in a sub post office in Viewmount Drive, Gilshochill, Maryhill. Billy Connolly lived above the shop. Does anyone have a photo of the shop? I think they were there late 60's to 70's. I have searched online for days but no luck so far.

Born in the Gorbals in 59, went to Buchan St school, Wolseley St and Adelphi Secondary terrace.

Lived in Cramond St for most of the time, remember being part of the fitba team for Wolseley St which beat St Bonaventures in the final, we met Jim Baxter at the school and I still have the picture to prove it!

Hello Colin,
Sorry I can't help you re your query however seeing that address just made me feel homesick as I was born in 210 Kelvinhaugh Street and lived in Kelvinhaugh until coming to Australia. The only thing I could say is maybe you should try the Valuation Roles as I think they start around 1830 and tell who lived at that address.

Good Luck

Hello, I am trying to trace the McManus ancestry. I know that I am a decendent of 1 of 7 brothers that came to Pennsylvania from Ireland. I have found that there are 2 McManus lineages in Ireland, one decending from Manus McGuire, the other decending from Magnus Chonchobair. The McManus name appears from the 1200's to 1600 in association with Colquhouns in the area of Luss. Did the McManus' move into Scotland from Ireland, then back to Ireland? Possibly with Parane MacWalter, a Scottish undertaker in Donegal. I would appreciate any thoughts. Thanks. David

I am trying to find family for a friend. His uncle was Ronald Bailey and the family lived at 52 Jedworth Avenue, Drumchapel. I have looked at all the videos on youtube hoping to see something about the family. I think his wife's name was Catherine, I would love to trace his cousins. So if anyone has any information I would really appreciate it.

I am hopeful that someone may be able to assist me.

My mother (Mary Sheridan - maiden name Dicks) was born in 1932 and lived for most of here adult life in the Gallowgate and Bridgeton area prior to immigrating to the USA with her family. She is now 85 years old and has spoken about a past love she had for a Jimmy Scott who was 10 years older than her when they met. She was 15yrs and he approx 25yrs. Her father forbid her from seeing him, but through the years, she has thought about him on and off, and spoke of him for the first time some years after my father passed away. The last time she saw him was probably in 1957 when she was attending a doctor's appointment heavily pregnant and they ran into one another.

She named my younger brother after him 'Scott' I am wondering if anyone would have known him? If he is still alive he would be around 95yrs or so, and if not, then it would be interesting to hear his story.

I think my mom would have been at that time c 1947/8 living in Law Street/Camlachie/Gallowgate or thereabouts. Welcome any info as it is such a sweet memory.

I would like to try and trace a person from Crown Street, Gorbals. his name is Charlie Foy. Charlie was an evacuee and for the duration of the war he was living in an Ayrshire village called Drumley, just outside Ayr. He lived with the Hodge family. My mother (Ellen Hodge) often spoke about Charlie and would like to get in touch. this may be a long shot but if anyone knows of Charlie's whereabouts, please get in touch. Thank you.

My name is Dave Park and I grew up in the Springburn area, specifically old Balornock and Barmulloch for the most part.

I would be interested to hear anything of Ruby Smith (as was), Robert Robb, Brian and Sandra Dunham, Isabel McPhee, Cathy McLennan or indeed anyone who attended Albert Primary or Secondary in the late 1950s or early 1960s.

I left Glasgow for good in 1971.

Any information about those people who meant something to me in my childhood and youth would be gratefully received.

Thank you, Dave.

My father was Radnor Porter and he lived in Maryhill the Milton area. He was born in 1947. Apparently, he was a bit of a wee rascal and accidentally set a brewery on fire when he was on 9 ... oops.. and ended up inside for his deeds. Does anyone have any memory of a brewery fire - around 1955/56 in Maryhill or Milton area. The place burnt to the ground but I can't find anything in old newspapers ...I'm in Sydney now so it makes it tricky to research and I'm keen to know more to add to my family tree.

I lived in Maryhill my mother was born there she was a Selkirk. Sorry I haven't heard about the fire which was shortly before we immigrated to Canada in 1957. My Granddad worked in a Brewery I think he was a salesman. I did go back to Maryhill twice but apparently it has changed a lot and a lot of the old tenements are gone. Sorry I couldn't help but it was nice to see a post from someone from Maryhill.

Hi All,
I just registered 2 days ago and can't post in the "Lost friends/Family' forum yet, so I'll throw this out here.

I am looking for information on Catherine (Cathy) Collins. In 1947 her family lived at 37 Tharsis St. The only documents I can find are the marriage certificate of her sister Elizabeth Hannah Collins to Francis Earl Pearson (a Canadian Merchant Seaman). It shows Father as Owen Nugent Collins and Mother as Annie (Jamieson) Collins with Catherine as a witness. Marriage was at Martyr's Parish and registration at Townhead.

Elizabeth (my Aunt) passed away December 19th, 2016 and we are trying to locate her sister Catherine. As they were estranged for the last 50 years,there are no details other than she may have moved to Ontario Canada. We do not know if she married in Glasgow or Canada, or her spouse's surname.

Any help is appreciated. The only other detail we have is that her mother.

Annie Collins may have passed away in 1960 in Dennistoun.

Looking for any members of the Currie family of Howwood St, Kinning Park. Father, Matthew, Mother Mary, kids, Matthew, Mary, Helen, Violet, James, Anna, Jennifer. Any info. would be appreciated. Matthew had a daughter, Mary died young around 20'ish Helen (Nellie) had two girls and a boy and lived in Govan, Violett died very young of the fever. James died in Canada at an early age, Anna had at least a couple of young boys and may have moved to Ayrshire? Jennifer moved to Australia and had two girls and a boy, Margorie Francis and Matt?? Marg eventually moved back to Scotland but Francis stayed in Australia but I believe their Dad moved to NZ with young Matt Australia is really the last place I believe they were all together. A very good friend of James also moved to NZ or Aust, John Sinclair. He returned to Scotland after some years I believe.
