N/A Born in Stobhill Hospital 40 years ago yesterday, I first lived at Ripon Drive, not far from Anniesland, where I later learned to drive (good old BSM - thanks Rene). We then lived at 76 Sprinboig Road in a house called Hunthill, where my younger brother Jim was born. Went briefly to Budhill Primary School (sadly since demolished) before my father's job took us to Hong Kong, where I lived until 1989. Dad (Jimmy) was with the GPO, as my grandfather (also Tommy) before him. We used to come back every couple of years for a few months holiday, and stayed with our Aunt and Uncle in Bearsden, where I briefly went to school. I have many relatives on my father's side in the LA area.

N/A Born in Glesca, 1956. My dad was a Merchant Marine Officer, so he traveled all over the world. He decided, when we, my older brother and I, that we must move into the world, and make our life. When I was two years auld it was Africa. NO GO! When I was Five. it was Australia, that was not OK with the family either. My dad tried his best to convince my family that we could do beter elsewhere, he won. We came to the States in 1969, and have been here ever since, 30 years this year.
We are from Penilee, Glasgow. My fathers family is the McGowans of Peneld Rd. My mothers family were the Correls of Inkerman Rd, then, 66 Ranfurley Rd. where I was born, and went to St. Georges Primary. We moved to Dormandside Rd in Pollok, in 67, and I went to Braidcraft or St. Convals. Whatever your choice was then.

N/A Hi, I am a 29 year old single mother. I am currently living in the US and I am attending University. I would love to hear from some people from Glasgow. I have been away from Glasgow for 7 years but got home for lots of visits. Unfortunately, I haven't been home for the last two years and I am very homesick. I lived most my life in Springburn and I can't believe how much it has changed.
