red mail Looking for birth father
Looking for birth father My name is Ammanda Sturges ( Ferguson ) my mother Janette Forbes and my birth father James Ferguson were married in 1971 ( the year of my birth 11/01/1971 ) James worked in the kilt industry I believe as a kilt maker in that year. My mother is from Kirkintilloch and I believe they were married there. I was born in Southampton, but raised in Kirkintilloch. I now live in California, USA. I have waited 47 years to begin this search, but I know I have siblings. If anyone has any information it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Elizabeth Little b 1857
Would be interested to hear from any descendants of Elizabeth Little born in 1857 in Kirkintilloch and who married William Reid. Died in 1940 in New Zealand.
red mail John Mclaren (1840-1898)
Seeking information on the above, his death record records him born at Kirkintilloch in 1840. He married Ellen Mullan in 1864 in Greenock at Patrick Street and migrated to New Zealand in 1875. The couple had ten children, some born in Scotland and other in Dunedin, New Zealand. John died in Dunedin in 1898 aged 58. One family history suggested his parents were James and Agnes (Murray) from Ireland but I can find nothing to support this data. He is more likely to have come from Scottish parents. A number of birth records/date/location match in certain criteria but not in others, so it remains a mystery. Any pointers or information welcomed.

I'm researching the maternal side of my family who came from Kirkintilloch. I have my great great Grandparents as Charles Cassels marrying Janet McLaren in 1866. They lived in Townhead and both were cotton weavers. It's difficult to decipher the writing but I think the church they were married in may be St John Legart?. I know there are no churches matching this now however I see there is a Baptist Church at Townhead built after 1866 and a Church of Scotland at Cowgate. Does anyone have any information about churches now gone or renamed in that area?
