Re: Bankruptcies

Hello Doddie, Try the Edinburgh Gazette, search for person’s name, or company name, or an address, or whatever.

Re: Midwife in Belfast

Hello Ailsa,

Re: What software to choose

Hello Ann, When I started fiddling with family history on a computer I downloaded a program called Personal Ancestral File (PAF5) for free from the LDS church. That was over 15 years ago and it must be good because I still use it and have used no other. It would fall into the KISS (Keep It Simple St...

The 1941/42 Glasgow Directory has a W. Thomson at 5 Harmony Row.
