Title: Grandfather
Post by: gw0pzugw4raf on Thursday 15 March 18 13:20 GMT (UK)
Looking for any traces of my grandfather Michael Ward, born in Ireland and was a builder in Tollcross between 1900 and 1925, reputed to have had contract at Clyde Iron Works regarding re-lining of the ovens

Welcome to Rootschat  :)

What sort of information are you looking for? If you want to trace him, or his family, in Ireland you'll need to give us an idea of when he was born.

Hi and welcome to rootschat ;D

Maybe you can start with searching the Irish census http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/search/

Hi and welcome to rootschat ;D

Maybe you can start with searching the Irish 1901 and 1911 census http://www.census.nationalarchives.ie/search/

More likely to have been in Scotland? Scotland's People will have 1911 and 1901 census recods (some pay sites also have 1901 but not 1911)

a quick potter onto Ancestry gave me 3 possibilities plus a further less likely one on the 1901 census, but nothing on 1911. This was making some fairly wild assumptions. You need to give more information for anyone to turn up something useful.

Which is exactly why I immediately removed the 1901/1911 and there are some remnants of 1821/31/41/51 census and 333 Micheal Wards in the 1911 Irish census worth checking if not in Scotland... but of course maybe also worth looking at in England
