red mail Looking for Margarita Renni Gilchrist
I would like to trace any living members of the Gilchrist family who lived at 19 Glasgow Road Blantyre in 1953. Thomas Maitland Gilchrist and Margarita Renni Gilchrist married in 1941 and divorced around 1953. They both subsequently remarried. Thomas was born in Rothesay on the Isle of Bute in 1913 but I can find no records of Margarita's birth or birth place. Margarita married William Gardiner in 1959 and I can find no record of either of their deaths. Thomas married Catherine Mary Kerr in 1961 and they both died in the Isle of Bute Thomas in 1983 and Catherine in 2006. If anyone has any information as to their children or knowledge of them as a married couple I would love to hear about it. Thank you.
red mail Lynch
Peter and Isabella Lynch(maiden surname Sadler or Saddler) were my great grandparents. Peter was born 1939 and died in 1875. The family lived in Shuttle Row, Blantyre (no longer anyone's address)and their children included John (my grandfather), Janet, Thomas, Robert, Elizabeth and Peter. Peter's parents were Robert and Janet Lynch (maiden surname Wallace). My problem is that though I know that Peter came from Ireland, I have no idea where, or even which county so I can't research his family further. Can anyone help?
