Re: Mystery badge

After looking at many badges and pins I'm thinking it may have belonged to a motorcycle driver.

Re: Marriage of foreign national couple in Scotland

Re: Annie Hodge married to Edmond Overend (Overn or Nerend)

Like Wilma said if you download the death entry for Annie it will give her parents names. According to census records she was born at Bellshill around 1873. Looks like her parents were James Hodge born Stirling and Margaret Whyte born Leith but marriage and death entries should verify that. From the...

Re: searching for Archie McFarlane

I wonder if his mother married and changed his name?

What year was Jessie born and what were her parents' names?

Re: James Gillespie - 344 Holmhead St, Glasgow

Hi Daryl,

Not much help in finding James but if you look at H 12 on this map https://maps.nls.uk/view/117744087 you will find Holmhead St.

Are you sure it was number 344 as the street seems a bit short for that?

Re: Kerr/Scott family Tailors from Glasgow

If you think that could be him then you can view the extract at The Mitchell Library Genealogy Centre. From there you can see if he married and hopefully find any c...
