Singer's Sewing Machines factory used to be in Bridgeton so Dalmarnock Road would be nearby, it later moved to a much bigger factory in Clydebank, I worked there myself for a time!  ;D

Thank you Sandra and Skoosh for your wonderful replies. As you may know I am very new to RootsChat and am learning how to navigate the site. Is there some way I can contact either of you via email? I guess you both live in Scotland so telephone would be difficult. I am curious how you were able to find out this information and have access to it so quickly. Looking forward to your reply.

Hi,

I purchased the death and marriage certificates for you from Scotlands people. 

https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/

The census came from a subscription site.

The guidelines for posting advise us not to post our personal email addresses, postal addresses, telephone numbers on the site because of scammers etc., so you will need to remove it.  You can contact anyone thru the personal message system - click on the name in the left hand margin which takes you to a new screen.  Under the name on the next screen it says "send pm" - this will take you to the next screen where you can send a private message.  Hope this helps.

I contacted RootsChat and asked them to remove the unwanted personal information, name and email. Hope that takes care of it.

You can do it yourself in the first 24 hours of posting.  Just press the modify button on that post and then delete your email.  After 24 hours we don't have the option to modify.
