Ships to Ireland from Glasgow

Hello, my grandfather, John Hannigan, who was born in Glasgow, was taken to Letterkenny as a little boy to live with his mother's family. The family name is Rodden. I have him with the family on the 1901 and 1911 census. I'm trying to find out about the ship that he would have travelled out on and b...

Re: Searching for Italian name

Hi Missie, I've just picked up your information on the family on this site. It's really great to have the have all of this information, and to know where they came from.

Glasgow Burial Request

Hi,

I had e-mailed Trongate offices yesterday to ask for help with information of family burials. I've had an e-mail back from them this afternoon to say that all burial information has been digitised and is available at the Mitchell Library.

Re: Searching for Italian name

Hi, My thanks to Lesley B, and to Alan. I had seen the Pinterest page, but it doesn't belong to me :-). Thank you Alan for the story on John. That was one I had missed, from everything I've read on them so far, I really like them. I've tried all of the websites on Italian surnames, but no joy so far...

Re: Searching for Marriage Banns GG Grandaparents

Hi BJ, I had thought about the 1841 Census, but had dismissed it, as logic insisted that the children would be grown and married by that time. Probably the wrong way to think about it, but also knowing that Thomas's son, David, wandered all over the country, Kirkconnell, Douglas, Killin, Luing, and ...
