Brian Masterson
(nee Harper)

USA
N/A My wife, Joanne, and I were both born in the States. My parents, Patrick and Lily Mitchell Wilson Masterson were born in Glasgow in 1887 and 1889, respectively. They emigrated to the States around 1910. Though we've been back to Scotland several times and researched our family in the Register House in Edinburgh, we have not found any relatives still in Scotland. The only clue that may help: my grandfather Patrick Masterson died near Glasgow in 1933. His death certificate noted that his niece, Martha Ann Kennedy, 789 Argle Street, Glasgow, was in attendance at his death on May 15, 1933.

Charlie McGettigan
England
N/A I was born in Kilberry St near Roystonhill in the Garngad. I then lived in Cloverbank St. I went to the Wee Roch school and then on to the big Roch which at the time was segregated where the boys went to the annexe in Blackhill and the girls went to the big school in Royston Rd. I left there in late 1968 and started various jobs in the town centre. I was a page boy in the Central hotel at Glasgow central and had a great time. I would like to hear from John Murray who was my best mate at the time he went on to join the Merchant navy. We wrote a few times but then lost touch. John Murray used to live in Balgrayhill, Springburn. I moved to England in 1970 and married an English lass 2 years later. We have a 9 year old girl now. My heart is still in Scotland and my accent is a lot softer now (but not lost). I would love to hear from my old mates in Glasgow.
David Andrew Scott
Canada
N/A I was born in Netherlee, Glasgow in 1965. I attended Netherlee Primary School and Williamwood High School, and would be interested in hearing from any former students. I studied photography in Glasgow, Manchester, and West Virginia. I have lived in Ontario, Canada since 1987 and work in advertising photography. I've been back to Glasgow several times, but my immediate family members now live in Paisley and Renfrew. My grandfather, John Dempster, was a partner in Dempster and Guthrie, China Merchants in Parnie Street in the East End of Glasgow. The store was later run by my father, Andrew Scott and closed in the mid 1970's. I would be interested in hearing from anyone who knew my father, grandfather or my mother, Rebecca Dempster, as I am currently researching family history. I would also be interested in hearing from anyone associated with Clydesdale Cricket Club, where my dad was a member and past president.
Kenneth Mackay
South Africa
N/A I came to live in Glasgow when I was seven years old -1947. I lived on Sandbank Street in Maryhill and went to Maryhill Primary and then to North Kelvinside SS School. I went to Strathclyde for a year and then went to London and finally to Rhodesia/Zimbabwe in 1961. In 1981 I came to live in South Africa. I have many many fond memories of Glasgow and have revisited several times over the years. I would like to hear from anyone from the Maryhill area as long as we do not get embroiled in all the old tiresome arguments about religion or the Highlander verus Lowlander divide. Kind regards.
