Hi my partner's late father was admitted to Monsall isolation hospital around the late
50's early 60's. He doesn't know why he went in there so wondered if anyone knew what diseases they would have been treated for and are there any records available. He also served abroad during WW2 so I wondered if he had malaria

Unfortunately not, my grandma lived at home when pregnant and she was hidden away until she had the baby then my great grandparents brought her up and my grandma later married and had my mum . There was always talk about Spanish in the family hence the tanned skin but it looks like it could be Greek now.

Hi thanks for the replies, unfortunately we don't know the father's name, we are clutching at straws basically. The only other thing we have got is my aunty's DNA which shows her being as 97% Scottish and 3% Greek. My aunty had a nice tanned skin and we never knew where it had come from but it looks like her father could have been half Greek. Were there Greek people living in Scotland around this time, who knows

Sutherland / Sailing ships to Canada 1910

Hi does anyone know what sailing ships sailed to Canada around 1910 from Scotland and where in Scotland would they have sailed from if they lived in the Sutherland area. When my aunty was born out of wedlock in Bonar in 1911 the father had sailed off to Canada but later sent tickets for my grandma and baby to join them but alas they were never given the tickets so remained in Sutherland.
Would be have gone to Canada with the forces around that time or maybe a different job or was there a migration thing going on. Any info would be good.
