Hi, You are near  to it.....
from Lanark take the A73 south, you will come to a fork, go left and you will be in Biggar.

I am trying to find the name Inglis or Wardrop, her last know address was Bigger, so I was just wondering what forum to go on, that would cover Biggar.
Thank You for any help

You need to be on the Lanarkshire board which covers the whole of Lanarkshire.

If you use the Report to Moderator on your thread you can ask them to move your thread to the Lanarkshire board.
