Angus (Forfarshire) / Dundee in the 1930`s
« on: Thursday 20 May 10 14:16 BST (UK)  »
Hi , can anyone please help me find information about my dads side of the family . My dad Ronald James Middleton Gunn was born 1934 Dundee , address on his birth certificate is St Ronans , Dalkeith Road,  Dundee . I have found out St Ronans was a home for unmarried mothers . My dad has no knowledge of Dundee or his mother or the first 5 years of his life and I woulk like to find out something for him . I do know his mother did not bring my dad up and I think my dad has a sister XXX Gunn born 1932 Lochee . The address on her birth certificate is 2 Liff Road Lochee but there were no Gunn`s at that address .
I did find out from Dundee council that my dad was registered at Hill street School Dundee 1939 and he stayed 108 Rosebank Street Dundee . There were no Gunn`s at 108 Rosebank Street . My dad was evacuated from Dundee 1939 to Banchory . I do have information from banchory 1939 onwards and this my dad remembers .
New information I have just received from Dundee council is that my dads mum Isabella MacDonald Gunn went to St Ronans 1st feb 1934 , Isabella came from c/o Middleton at 41 Cowgate Dundee . Isabella had my dad 13th feb 1934 and she left St Ronans 16th march 1934 . The reason why she left was GOT A SITUATION  (which could mean anything) . There is NO mention of 1st child XXX at St Ronans .
My dad left St Ronans 7th april 1934 and was fostered to GEDDES at 108 Rosebank Street Dundee this would have been a private agreement . Would this be a private agreement from St Ronans or my dads mum ? Could XXX have been fostered before Isabella went to the Middleton`s 41 Cowgate Dundee .

Can anyone give me info on   
1/ XXX Gunn born 1932 Lochee .
2/ The Geddes Family from 108 Rosebank Street Dundee .
3/ The Middleton`s from 41 Cowgate . Is my  2+2=5 when it comes to my dads middle names. Ronald JAMES MIDDLETON Gunn .
I hope this makes sense as I am a newdie to Rootchat any info or ideas would be very much appreciated . Thanks Rhona
