Motherwell, lived in Glasgow working at a
brewery, migrated to Winnepeg, Manitoba, Canada,
where my mother was born (1915) then to Detroit,
Michigan, USA. I am seeking distant relatives
that are still in Scotland.
||I was born in Bridgeton
(Madras St.) 50 years ago (1949), and we moved
around a lot....no, not because the provvy was
after us! LOL. We just did. I lived in Milton
until I was about 5, then moved to Doncaster,
England. We moved back to Scotland when I was 9,
and lived in Partick (Sawmill Rd). Then we went
back to Bridgeton, for another year or so, then
moved Drumchapel (Drummore Rd), and finally to
Knightswood (Moorehouse Ave.). Needless to say, I
attended quite a few schools...none for any
length of time. Certainly not long enough to
establish any long time friendships. I have
trouble now even remembering any names from those
days. In Partick, I went to Balshagary for about
6 months, in Bridgeton...John St. for about a
year. While we were in Drumchapel I went to
Waverly in Knightswood. I left there in 1964
before they moved the school to Drumchapel. I
went to work at Singer in Clydebank, and was in
the diecasting department for most of my stay
there. I moved to Canada in January 1971, to
Toronto. I worked for a pharmaceutical company
where I met my wife (of now 25 years). We moved
up to Lakefield, about 80 miles north east of
Toronto in 1981 to take over her parents house
when it got too big for them. Lakefield is where
Prince Andrew went to school when he was in
Canada. I got a job with Chesebrough-Ponds in
Peterborough, and am still there. They were
purchased by the Anglo-Dutch conglomerate
Unilever in 1986, and our name was changed to
Thomas J. Lipton....a good Scottish company Well,
enough about me, if anybody remembers me, I'd
love to hear from you.

||In the mid 60's I had a pen
pal from Bridgeton named Elizabeth Casey. Her
address was 69 Reid Street. My last letter to
Elizabeth was returned to me with no forwarding
address. I never heard from her again and I have
always wondered if she is ok. I would love to
hear from her again.
||My name is Jim Brogan, and I
was born in Glasgow in 1950. I lived on Alexandra
Parade (No 678, opposite the park gates) with my
parents Bob and Betty (both now deceased)and my
brother Robert (now in Canada) and sister
Elizabeth. I went to Alexandra Parade Primary
School. We moved to Easterhouse (Provanhall part,
Balfluig St, number 19) when I was eight. I first
went to Provanhall Primary School then on to
Garthamlock Secondary School from 1962 to 1968,
followed by Strathclyde University. I then lived
on Duke St. (No. 314) for three years before
moving to Rotherham, South Yorkshire to work in
the steel industry. Been here ever since (but
I'll never be an Englishman, too proud of my
accent and background). I get to see my sister
(now in Paisley) occasionally but I seem to have
lost touch with everything else in Glasgow (apart
from the Rangers). It would
be great to hear from anyone out there who
remembers me or my family, or anyone who lived in
the same places at the same time as myself, or
went to school with me.
