History of 24 Bluevale Street
From 1871, my ancestors, Thomas and Elizabeth Wallace Family and a George William and Elizabeth Rawles, lived at 24 Bluevale Street and had moved around the corner to 464 Duke Street by 1872. I was told there may have been a fire that may have killed some of my ancestors. I was wondering if anyone can tell me if there was a fire in or around 25 Bluevale Street. And some details about the fire. In any of the papers back then? Suggest where I can locate the information by a phone call or on the internet, since I am from the States. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Henry Walsh/Welsh
I am looking for a record of immigration for my 3rd great grandfather, Henry Walsh, sometimes spelled, Welsh. He was said to have migrated to America before his family to look for work but I cannot find this. He had his third child, Ellen, born in 1880 so he would have had to be around for the birth Margaret, June 1st, 1882. So I am thinking June, July of 1882 he leaves and returns by July 1885 to gave his son Henry born April 24th, 1886. He says in an 1901 census he was in America in 1884. But like I said, I can't find a record of him there or back and then back again because Elizabeth and all the children come over in 1888 - 89. So if anyone has any help I would appreciate that. And to see anything about him his parents names where James Walsh and Helen McGlasky? spelling?. Said to be from Ireland, Belfast he writes.
Hi I have been looking for the birth certificate of Robert Miller born about 1850 but have had no luck.

I have found his death certificate and it has he died April 1887 aged 31. Thanks

John Rawles and Mary Ellen Rawles
I am looking for two people, brother and sister, children of my 3rd great grandmother, Elizabeth Wallace Welsh. She gave birth to Mary Ellen Rawles for her first husband, George Willliam Rawles, I am presuming he died but no death certificate. She was with the children living with her mother, also Elizabeth Wallace in the Scotland Census of 1871. She and the children's name is spelled Baules but I know it is them. She was a cotton yarn winder in 1871-1879 and lived at 302 Garngadhill with Henry Welsh her second husband. But in the 1881 Census John and Mary Ellen are not with her. I am astonished to find this and can only assume they are in an orphanage. I don't know if there are any records to look into on this but John reunites with Elizabeth and Henry and moves to America in 1888-89. He is about 20 at this time. Still uses the name Rawles and he and Mary Ellen still have the name Elizabeth and George Rawles. So with that can anyone help me or suggest where I may continue my search??????

red mail Bennett/Donnelly/MacIntyre/McGill/Brolls
I am looking for any members of Alexander Bennett, probably born around 1880+, at some stage in his life he had a relationship with Annie MacIntyre nee Donnelly, daughter of Michael and Catherine Donnelly. Alexander and Annie who never married had two children John born 1925 and Ann, 1925. Annie died in 1926. I have no information on Alexander and believe his son and daughter were raised by a family called Brolls originally from Sorbie, Wigtownshire who moved to Harlow, Essex. I have been searching for a number of years and have found members of the Donnelly family, who have been unable to fill in the gaps from 1926. Ann Bennett was my Grandmother but she died quite young at only 30 leaving behind a son and daughter my mother. If anyone knows anything about John and Ann Bennett, the Brolls, I believe there may have been a John Brolls, Alexander Bennett. Or Annie's first born Mary MacIntyre, married name McGill, father Gilbert Duncan MacIntyre please get in touch. I have been researching for 10 years now. Kerry

I am looking for information about Cornelius BONAR, who was a sponsor at the catholic baptism of my ancestor, Sarah LAW, on 11/11/1832 at Glasgow St. Andrews Cathedral.

I am hoping the BONAR connection may throw some light on it.

red mail Johnston / Anderson mid 1800s parentage?
I've been told that a James Anderson, who certainly later moved to Wales and was a miner, lived somewhere in Glasgow in around 1865/6, when he married a Mary Johnston. The families may have been Roman Catholic, but I'm not at all sure. I've not been ably to find them on any 1871 census, but at least one child was born in Wales in 1867, a James Henry Anderson. He's the only child I know of. Now I know that searching for an Anderson in Scotland is ... a bit like looking for a Jones in Wales! Can anyone help with ideas for finding James and Henry's parents and families at about that time? I've no idea of their ages, either, sadly, and simply cannot find this pair on any census. (I even wonder if, as mining was such a hazardous occuptaion, James may not have lived very long? And Mary may have re-married, probably the most sensible option for security.) So it may be hopeless, but - any ideas?

red mail James Morris (morrison) Fulcher
Im am trying to find any info on my 3x great grandfather James Morris Fulcher. There is only one record I can find of him, on his sons birth cert, he states that he (james morris fulcher) was born in Lanarkshire, Galsgow, I put the year to be around 1808-1810. I can find absolutely no record of such a birth in Glasgow, or any record even in the entire u.k. The first time he appears anywhere is on his sons birth cert , in Australia in 1864. That same son lists his father on his marriage cert as "James Morrison Fulcher". Both names Morris/Morrison sound more like surnames, and I am curious that "morris fulcher' could be a hyphenated name, and he was perhpas born just James Morris (or Morrison) and Fulcher came later. Maybe through a parent dying, remarrying a Fulcher and adding the name. The only other thing I know about him is he was a bricklayer, and appears on record in australia first in 1864 at the age of about 54. If anyone can shed some light or help in anyway I would be most grateful, Thank you.
