Hello Don.  Thank you for replying.  I tried the Glasgow Herald before and had a hard time maneuvering the site but I will attempt checking the names and links you gave me.  Thanks.

Hi chempat!  Thank you for replying.  I am on ancestry and my heritage and have searched other sites for the Harris family but have not found much of anything.  Yesterday I did learn my fatherís first cousin in Canada who I recently found had contact with William at least 10 years ago.  Will keep trying!  Regards.

Scotland / HARRIS family from Glasgow and Dundee

Hello!  First timer here from the US so open to all suggestions please!  My sister in Canada and I are seeking information on our paternal grandmother who died in Dundee in 1983.  Any information would be helpful in doing our family tree but in particular, we are looking for obituaries.

Our grandmother was born Margaret McNally McKay on Aug. 29, 1899 in Pollokshaws to Maggie McNally and William McKay.  They did not marry. 

Our grandmother gave birth to our father, Alexander Reid McKay in Glasgow on Feb. 7, 1923.  We have his BC but no fatherís name was listed.  Our father immigrated to Canada in 1948 and died in 2008 in Niagara Falls where most of our family now still live. 

Back to Scotland.  In 1926 in Glasgow, when our father was 3, Margaret married John James Harris (born 1898, died Feb. 1, 1941 in a drowning accident in Rosyth Dockyard, Dunfermline).  Margaret died at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee on July 17, 1983.

Margaret and John had 6 children born in Glasgow and Dundee between 1928-1939.  John Thomson Harris, James Harris, William McKay Harris, John Henry Harris, Margaret Harris and David Elder Harris.  We know 2 children passed away, John Thomson Harris (born 1928 Glasgow/died 1929 Glasgow) and John Henry Harris (born 1933 Glasgow/died 1996 Dundee).  We are hoping to find some of our fatherís half-siblings still living. 

Any help in finding obituaries or other directories would be very much appreciated. 

Kind regards,
KBurke23
