I am trying to get the words to a comical poem a friend of the family used to recite at parties etc. I think it was called 'when my dividend comes oot'. I am also trying to track down members of my extended family. My great grand parents were Thomas Snedden and Elizabeth King who came from Carriden near Boness. My maternal grandmother was their daughter Elizabeth who was born in Kirkliston. Would love to hear from anyone who could be related.

I am trying to trace my mothers family. I know that Mother, Margaret Noble Gormley, was born in Port Glasgow on March 20, 1905. She had a sister Annie whose husband was Charlie Mulholland, a brother John who left home at a tender age to join the Navy, and later emigrated to New York, USA. There was also a brother Hugh, who was later in the Royal Air Force. My mother's mothers name was Maryann Doherty, and her father was John (Jock) Gormley. Mother was baptized in St. John's church in Port Glasgow. Any information will be much appreciated. Sincerely, Ann Woods

I learned of this site three days ago and I'm now addicted to it. I found connections to several people and have communicated with them. I left Glasgow in 1959 to live in London, before coming to the USA in 1961. I didn't return to Glasgow for 20 years and the change was mind boggling. My brother Jack and I went for a stroll down some of the old streets which were still there but it had changed so much I didn't recognize where I was at times. When we turned onto Oxford street I saw that most of the buildings from the past were gone but, lo and behold, the Oxford Street library was still standing. It was closed but we climbed the stairs and peered through the windows with tears streaming down our 50+years cheeks. We used to frequent that library almost every day where we found an escape from a miserable homelife by losing ourselves in books. I wonder if anyone else rememnbers that library and me. I was born in 1939 on Buchan Street...across from the Gorbals school and have two brothers Matthew and Jack. My maiden nname is Rollins and both my father and uncle had dance studios where they taught ballroom dancing. Feel free to use my e-mail address if you recognize my name. Thanks.

As a 17 year old I sold the evening papers, times & citizen on the corner, I remember there was a mum and dad, son and daughter. The son was tragicly killed in a motercycle accident around 1952/53.

Enquiry submitted by Lauren USA 23/10/06. Just a loose possibility that Mochan's that lived next door to me when I was young could be related to her mums cousins. They lived next door to 761 Boydstone Road, Carnwadric, Glasgow. The parents were Harry and Sissy and the children were Harry, Molly, Steven, and Angela. I left in the late 70's and they still lived there then, all the children would be in their 50's now.
