Hi

Johnston Stores were taken over by William Low & Sons, which is now part of Tesco.

Hi all
Yet another branch of Johnstone's Stores was located on the corner of Ellen Street and Alexander Street.  I remember this from the 50's.  Alas, long gone now, demolished in the early 60's to make way for the inevitable multi story blocks.   :(  Jenc

Glasgow - Fitzgerald, Campbell, McInnis, Sheriff, (Smith, Chambers.) maybe Ireland
Angus - Saunders, McGregor Richardson  Moore.
Inverness-shire - McLean (I hope)

Jenc,

Thanks for the information.  It's been an interesting search regarding this branch of the family and their stores.

Hi Kathleen
Just had another thought about where you might locate a photo of one of the stores.  The local paper 'Dundee Courier' has a column which often features memories of old Dundee and roundabout, the e-mail address is craigie[at]thecourier.co.uk. (replace [at] with @)   Their archives might have something interesting.  No doubt many Dundonians of a ' certain age ' would be happy to be reminded of their popular Johnston's Stores.

Hi Jenc,

Thanks for your idea which I will check into.  On another of my postings -- Johnston, Rae, Ramsay, etc., someone posted a picture of one of the stores, but I'm interested in learning more, so will continue.

Are you, by chance, a member of the Johnston family?

Hi Kathleen
Not a family member i'm afraid, just got caught up in your story, which  stirred up happy memories of a Dundee long past :'(  Good luck with your research.
Regards Jenni.

       Hi Kathleen,
           
            I'm hoping that you're still researching the Johnston family of Dundee Angus( Scotland )
            I've read all the messages that were sent to you, but didn't come across one with Catherine Johnston who married John Drummond . They were born in the late 1700s and early 1800s.
             Their children were :
                 William Drummond. b. about 1820s
                 John Drummond.    b. about 1830s
                 Jane Drummond.  b. about   1833
                 George Drummond b. about 1845

  Would greatly appreciate any help from you or anyone who has information on this family.
             Thank you,
                        Dru.

Hello Dru,

I hope there was some helpful information in the Johnston threads on here.

I do not have any records related to the Drummond family.

Do you know who Catherine's parents were?
