Welcome to rootschat, Sean.

It is highly unlikely that anyone reading these boards will know your parents.

However, just for extra information, do you know how long they lived in Scotia Street, and did you have any aunts or uncles?

My great-grandmother Agnes Pentland and her daughter (also called Agnes) lived at 27 Scotia Street (I'm not sure about the 1950s, but they certainly would have been there in the 1960s). Her other daughter Margaret Morris lived upstairs at number 25 with her husband (they were cottage flats). I visited there myself a few times in the 1970s but the only neighbour I remember was the next door neighbour who was around 104 years old! I was quite young at the time.

My great-grandmother lived there until she died in 1979 aged 91.

I'll ask some of my relatives if they remember your family  :)
