Mary disappeared to Ireland. I knew aunties Jessie and Nancy. Know NOTHING about granny Patterson except she went to the 'mission hut'. My family was Catholic therefore cut off from her.

Went to Victoria primary, then onto Queen's Park Senior Secondary in 1948 thru 51 or 52. Looking for people who may know me. For instance Mary MacGown, of Clyde Valley Stompers lived across the street from me in Priesthill.

I am researching my family tree and I believe my grandfathers family came from the Gorbals area. My grandfather was Patrick Holland (as was his father) and came out to Australia in 1926 (his leaving address was 339 South Wellington Street, Glasgow, which I believe became 339 Lawmoor Street). He had two brothers, James and John Campbell. James died in 1946 and was married to Mary Coulter. John I believe was married to Elizabeth and he died in 1990. My auntie used to correspond with my great grandfather Patrick Holland (who died in 1960), and from photos he sent we know there was a Rena, Betty, Josephine and Patricia in the family. We would really like to find any living relatives, and also complete our family tree. If anyone has any information could you please e-mail me. Many thanks, in anticipation. Gillian Holland.

To Irene Muir Yes, I remember you although I am 6 years older than you and that is a lot when you are a wean. I think 30 Hayfield St was opposite the Pig and Whistle Lounge door entrance around from McNeil St. You used to stay in the low down house in the close. Your mother was always so neat and tidy. I went to Hayfield School then John St in Bridgeton. I remember you because we used to play "Film Stars", "Statues" "Chases" and Rounders in Hayfield St. Run a few names past you-do you remember Janet Moffat my sister, Helen Moffat or Betty Webster, Billy and Jamsie Hawkins? The latter were all cousins. I lived in 66 McNeil St right next to the Pig and Whistle-our room window faced on to Hayfield st and your close. Does May Kerr/May Gullen ring any bells? She became May Monday when she married and lived in the close opposite yours. This would be about 1964 You might have moved to Castlemilk by then. Run a few names past me to see if I remember any your pals. Cheers Rita, Is one of your brothers a taxi driver?

I used to visit my aunty Mary now and again as I had a good friend called Johnny Adams who lived on the top floor of your close in Rosyth street So if you are my cousin please write and let me know what you've been doing all these years as I'm trying to find out about my family who are left in Scotland .I've lived in Canada for the last 40 years,got home a lot but may not be able to make it again Yours Tommy Kearney.

Re Stevie Donachy and Crossroads Youth Club with Geoff Shaw: hello Stevie, yes I'm the same John Stark that was 'involved' at the Barras. I was there with probably Wasso and someone else when we were recognised by the Calton Tongs. We were set about and I still have the scar on my face. That's incredible to know that there are still people out there who remember. I must confess that I can only vaguely picture the names that you mention. I have a number of photographs taken at the time and you may be among them. But you're right, where did all these phenominal fitba players go!

Was Pattersons Bakery around the corner from Portugal St and at the corner of Warwick St.? Gosh, I still remember the wonderful smell of the scones, treacle, butter, soda, when I walked past there on my way to school every morning. I attended Tradeston, then Holyrood. Nothing matches the taste of those scones today. Everything is processed. I think they use the same formula for bread, cakes..whatever. Then that little crisp shop in South Portland St. After school we'd go there, and then the great library across the street. When I'm in Manhattan, the 5th ave. of the NYPL is a magnificent building, but I always remember my happy days in the Gorbals St. Library. Jings..those were innocent days.

Looking for my BOYLE family.....Patrick James Boyle was my grandfather, born 1908 in Glasgow although I cant find a birth record for Glasgow or Ireland. He died aged 38 at Eglinton Lane in 1946. His wife was Mary Boyle maiden name Kilkie, his parents were Rose Boyle maiden name Montford or Mountford and Francis Boyle who were married at St Johns church Portugal St Gorbals in 1901, living at 94 King St Tradeston. People might not make the connection as Patrick apeared to have no children but he had 8 who were taken into care at a young age and 1 dying at birth. Ruckhill Camp (check spelling)appears on some birth certs and my grandmother Mary re married in the early 50s havin 2 other children who I am intouch with but they have no knowledge of Patrick or his family. I think I have a brother and sister for Patrick who are...Agnes Boyle born 1901 at what looks like 29 Queen Mary St Bridgeton and John Boyle born 1904 at what looks like 213 London Road Camlachie Glasgow. It would be good to know of any other relatives and has anyone seen a grave for any of the above names? Will it be the Southern Necropolis?

To answer Anne suggestion that government programmes should be helping raise the life expectancy of the poorer areas of Glasgow- there are many initiatives available- including the free health care you dont get in the US- free will and a culture of heavy drinking, drug use and unhealthy lifestyles are more poweful than the government suggestions to live better, so we have the lowest life expectancy in the developed world. There does seem to have been some change in recent years though

However, I found two web sites, one from 2008, and one as recent as Sept. 2009 giving the same info. Unlike the U.S.A. you have such easy access to health care I would think there would be government programs to help these kids.
