Ms Lavery
England
N/A Hi, I was born in Glasgow in the Southern General Hospital new years day 1972. I am the only daughter of Mary Martin born 1952(bridgeton)and William Lavery born 1954. I lived in James Street in Bridgeton until I was around 3 and can vividly remember creeping into the kitchen in the middle of the night to feed the mice that had climbed out of their little holes, and seemed to over run the house at that hour. My mother was horrified when she caught me. We moved when they were pulling the building down and went to live in Darnley where I attended the St. Angela's Primary School. I remember Mrs Barton and Miss Murphy as my favourite teachers there. I left there when I was 10 and moved to Ipswich with my parents. I am now 27 and work as a Support Analyst in Thatcham Berskhire, I still regularly visit Glasgow but I do miss it very much. If anyone who went to St Angelas in Darnley around 1977 please drop me an e-mail.

N/A Greetings! My name is Chris, I am a 29-year old architect and was born here in the states. I wish to find a genealogical link from my immediate family to Scotland. I am thied generation Scorgie which I have found that there are many Scorgie's in the US and Canada alone that I have never known existed until the advent of the Internet. My Father, William Edwin Scorgie II was born in 1936 in Cambridge, Massachusetts and his Father, William Edwin Scorgie was born in Boston sometime between 1910-1918 (not Sure). His father, Thomas Scorgie was a grave digger who emigrated to the states (when? I have no idea). I have corresponed with a Richard (Dick) Scorgie in Aberdeenshire, but that is as far as I have been able to find out. I would love to hear any useful information regarding this, and get a good Haggis recipe. Thanks
