Thomas Lannigan
Australia
N/A My name is Tommy Lannigan. I was born in the Linthouse Building in Govan on 12/9/21. Married Mary McNaulty of Helen Street, Govan. Had 8 children altogether (2 died), worked in the Scottish Cables in Renfrew until 1976 when I emigrated to Sydney, Australia. I now live in Queensland and have recently been back to Scotland, I have been back 3 times since emigrating. My last trip was something I will always remember as I had many happy outings and visits with family members, especially Theresa and Mary Lannigan who gave me a really good time. I would like to hear from anyone who lived in Govan or the Linthouse buildings or any family members in Scotland. Also I would like to contact an old friend who went to Canada just after the war by the name of Willie (or Bill) Donnigan.

Connie (nee Campbell) Shearer

N/A Emigrated to Canada Nov. 1946, age 3-1/2. Have lots of memories of walking with my Mum in Botanic Gardens I believe, holding on to the side of the pram. Wrote poetry about some of the memories from the viewpoint of a child of 3. "Glimpses of a Glasgow Girl". Someone in Ireland put it to music and they sing about it in the pubs. Anyway we live in the Thousand Islands area of Canada. Are coming to Glasgow in May (an entire month, 2 weeks in Ireland, 2 in Scotland to trace roots.) A one-time trip for us. Ross has spinal cord injury from a train derailment near Toronto. We are bringing our youngest son and wife, in thirties. Looking for family and friends of my parents. John Eadie Campbell (Larbert) and Violet Bygroves, Glasgow/Dublin, who nursed at Belvedere Hospital (1939-40). I was born in the Mary Hill, Hillhead area. Have fond memories of those years.Looking for relatives. Does anyone know a Tom Campbell, Roy Campbell, Willie Campbell, or Margaret Campbell Galbraith? From the Larbert area. Most relatives Dad knew are deceased but we are looking the kin. Warm Regards, Connie Campbell Shearer

John Cameron Ward
Australia
Genealogy, with emphasis on McGregors I spent some time in the Clyde during the war on MV Miralda, a MAC-ship, or Merchant Aircraft Carrier. Since then I have done lots of things but finished up researching my Scottish ancestry. I descend from the marriage of John Cameron and Elizabeth McDougal in Glasgow on 1 August 1834. If anyone else can make the same claim I should be very glad to hear from them. The couple must have migrated to Manchester soon after marriage.
