Hi folks, brick wall. In the 1911 census For Kilmallie, address Corpach Canal Cottage, was the residence of my wife forebear, Peter Macpherson, his wife and children specifically Margaret aged 14.
 We know of three children born to her Moira, John and William. Sometime after the census we believe she moved to the Glasgow area, where she married ? Have searched Scotland`s people but no luck identifying husband or marriage. Any ideas welcome. Thanks.

Hi folks,

Wondered if someone could point me in the right direction. My estranged brother was found dead on 19th. Mar 1997. Apparently there was an appeal in a Glasgow newspaper, perhaps more than one. There was a picture I am informed of him. I wondered how I could discover which paper.
Thanks for time taken to read.

Lanarkshire / Which School near Whitevale St. ??

Hi Folks,

I moved to Glasgow from Aberdeen in or about 1961/62. Initially I stayed in Annbank Street and can recall I went to a school near Whitevale St. ?? Cannot recall the name of the school. After a period of time I moved to Acorn street and seem to recall moving school but cannot recall that either. Any help greatly appreciated, also hoping to find school pictures more especially of my two brothers who stayed in Glasgow and have both now passed away.

Hi folks,

Trying to get information on the above Geo. Mitchell I believe he went to USA in 1910 from Aberdeen, Scotland. Described as a blacksmith. horse shoer or similar. May have settled in Minnesota ? I think I know there is a 2xgrandson Douglas Mitchell, same name as my father.
