Does anyone remember anyone with the surname Farrell who lived in Florence Street? This could be as far back as the 1930's and up to the 50's or 60's. My sister and I are trying to trace our dad's family. It's not much to go on, but its all we have. Thanks.

Like to add more details to my search request for my close friend Jimmy Burns who lived south side of glasgow - I was born l932 at 371 Caledonia rd till early 50s. Jimmy lived in Clydebank with his wife Mary and 2 baby sons in the late 50's, he worked for Stevens shipyard as a cabinet maker and may have become a prison guard at Barlinnie Prison in the 60's. His brother Malcolm Burns was an optican in Glasgow. We have tried every way to find him without success and hope this site will be successful - he will be 69 or 70 now. Thank you for any information you may be able to give us. We have been in the U.S.A. since l958 but my memories of my childhood in the Gorbals are strong. Gerry Burke
