Joseph Adams Family Tree
« on: Sunday 04 October 20 20:58 BST (UK) »
Hi there,

My name is Bryan and I'm trying to locate my family tree. My great great grandfather's name was Joseph Adams and he lived in Shettleston Scotland in the mid 1920s. His child Robert Adams (great grandfather) and wife Mary came to Canada in 1926 on the SS Baltic. Robert and Mary and 7 children (Joseph, James, John, Susan, Jean, May, and Ruby) were listed as being born in Coatbridge. Can you help me to locate any info that helps me explore further back. Thanks

Sorry - were Robert and Mary's children born in Coatbridge?

Have you found the family in the American censuses, and so an approximate birth date for any of them?

You need to use scotlands people for birth certificates, 1911 census, etc

Cannot see Ruby, wonder if that was her birth name?

His death in Canada in 1946 gives his wife as Mary Lawson, his Father as Joseph Adams and his Mother as Jean Davidson.

There is a marriage on scotlandspeople for Robert Adams and Mary W Lawson in 1901 in Blythswood.

Suggest you purchase some credits from them so you can find the details'

I was able to trace back the documents from when my family settled in Canada in 1926 and have documents from then, All the way up to their move to British Columbia.

On their original ship documents it lists my great great grandfather, Joseph Adams (54 Budhill Ave Shettleston Glasgow) as the contact back home. The only one I have a birthdate for is for James Lawson Adams (Robert and Mary's son- my grandfather) and that's June 6, 1906. I've tried using Scotland's people and without paying money, I can't see any that I know for sure are my relatives.
