Linda Calver
Australia
N/A

I aged 50, three two daughters, 4 grandchildren. Parents divorced in 1959 and I went to Oz with my mother. I met my father again in Scotland in 1990 and he introduced me to his new family. He has two daughters from that Union. I was so over the moon to hear from them all, my sister and her family even came to stay for a while in Australia. However, when they returned to Scotland, I have lost all contact with them. To be frank I think they may not want to keep in touch. I would dearly love to be able to write, perhaps sending photos of my wonderful grandchildren. My heart will tell you that you can take the heart out of Scotland but you can't take Scotland out of the heart! When I first returned as an adult, my heart groaned within me, the tears rolled and I said nothing to others in the car. For, only a Scot could begin to understand. Myself, mmmm....very happily married, still work full time for the Japanese Government, love my garden, love Australia and would love to resume contact with my Glasgow family.

James Frew
Scotland
N/A

I am a 31 year old male and am totally proud of where I come from (Glasgow) I currently live outside Glasgow (helping a family member settle) and would like very much to return - all I know and love remains in Glasgow - the patter, my kids, the people the places, the clyde everything one man needs to love life. Although sometimes it can be daunting in Glasgow there are always better days and always a better class of people (including the wee jake who mumbles words of jumble)- in other words - I love Glasgow - I belong there. I am always looking for ways to better myself, I am an ex-smoker, I am a class act to myself though I do not love myself ok! I believe there is a God and in equality, I have a good sense of humour and oh well I live for tomorrow!

Eileen Bayliss (nee Coyle)
England
N/A I was born EILEEN COYLE, October 1948, lived at 64 Murano Street, Maryhill, Glasgow - the youngest of six kids.  My parents were JAMES (WILLIAM) COYLE and MARGARET (STRACHAN OR MULGREW) COYLE.  My brothers and sisters were - JAMES (JIMMY), MARGARET, MICHAEL, ROSEMARY AND MAUREEN (born between 1940 and 1947).  My dad died (I believe), around 1954.  He was 'journeyman' and had worked on Iona.  Sorry to sound so vague about things - my mum relocated us to London almost immediately after Dad died, and it's all just very vague from there on. She didn't have great memories and didn't talk a lot about our origins.  My mum recently passed away, and it's awakened the interest of my two sisters and I (only 4 of us left), in our parents' families.  We're looking now for any uncles, aunties, cousins that may be around.  My dad's dad was called William, I believe, and Dad had at least one brother called Alec and a sister called Peggy (I think!), and some of his family lived, I believe, around the Possilpark and/or Sprinburn areas.  I know Coyle is a very popular name around Glasgow, and that this is probably a shot in the dark, but it would be great if there was anyone out there who thinks we might be related, to get in touch.  It would be good to find some relatives. My mum was an orphan, adopted by Michael and Mary Mulgrew and lived in Kilsyth until she married my dad.  She was also known by the name of Strachan (her name before adoption, I believe).  She had an adopted sister called Jessie.  Ring any bells with anyone? Here's hoping then, that someone will respond.
