I just found your Web page while surfing for "Springburn, Glasgow"
articles/websites. I have held a longing to find out a bit more of my 'family history' only to be thwarted by "Time Limitations" 'buying search time, etc., and getting nowhere.
I will search your site for 'Springburn' threads and I thank you for being here for us 'need to knows'

I have a wee website called "Springburn Place" and if any of your searchers are interested? they may find a 'name' they have on their search list on our pages.
http//springburnplace.proboards50.com/index.cgi  forum no longer exists 2013
Looking forward to some reveals, if you don't mind, I'll post a 'Link' of this site on my website, thank you.

I have just come across a relative who resided in Scotland. Rootschat seems to be the only forum that has any effective connection with Scotland. Fortunately I have found the site and hope to become involved.

The 1st place to start is with your own birth certificate. This will you your mother's name. If you don't have it you can order a copy from the Government Recordsd Office. http://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/

You can do the same for your father.
