red mail Time is running out....Joseph McBride born Dennistoun 1930
Hello, I am hoping there is someone out there who can help me. My Dad is 79 yrs old and has been diagnosed with Alzheimers. He immigrated with his family to Australia when he was a teenager in the 1940's. It's my Dad's 80th Birthday on October 23rd and I am hoping to put together some memories about his childhood and make a scrapbook for him. My Dad grew up in tenement housing in Coventry Drive and went to St Thomas Catholic school. I was wondering if anyone out there could please help me? I would like to collect any information/photo's from my Dad's childhood. My Dad has always missed his home country. As a child, I remember my Dad drinking every night and listening to Scottish records - I belong to Scotland, Roamin in the Gloamin etc. I just want to bring back some childhood memories for my Dad before he loses his memory for good. My Dad's name is Joseph McBride and his dad was Charles and his mum was Millicent Elizabeth. They had 3 boys - Charles, Joseph and John. I know everyone has busy lives, but any help or advice would mean alot to me and my Dad. Thank you and Regards Beth
red mail dunlop
I am looking for information on Alexander DUNLOP and his brother David DUNLOP (Born Nov. 1895). Their father's name was also Alexander. They all were in Scots Greys in about 1910?? Their mother's name may be Sarah (not sure) who died shortly after David was born. He was sent to Ireland to be raised by the CHAMBERS family but came back to Scotland in his teens. Dunfermline may be the area they lived in. Any information would be appreciated or direction I should look in would be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

red mail Jack,James and Mary DUFF born Dennistoun early 1900's
We believe James Duff was born here in 1902 and that Mary was born later. At sometime in the early l900's they were orphaned their parents JAMES DUFF AND MARY JEFFREYS are listed as dead in 1920 on Jame's marriage certificate. The three children were "Glasgow Orphans" and fostered on a farm in Beauly, Invernesshire. What or who was the organisation? We have no birth details of James. Has anyone any knowledge or hints on how to find James Duff junior before the 1911 census becomes available? Christine
