Question

Answer

I am attempting to put together a web site to satisfy the nostalgic yearnings of anyone involved in Townhead, Royston (Garngad), Germiston and adjacent areas. It relies on visitors sending me their memories and scannned photos. I am having particular difficulty obtaining info on Germiston's History, where I spent much of my childhood in the seventies. ANY info/photos of these areas would be welcome.
Check out the site as it stands at the moment

Thanks in advance

My grandfather is trying to build a picture of our family tree and needs help to solve a mystery. For years his birth certificate was missing but when he recently managed to track down and obtain a copy he discovered his parents were not who he originally thought.
My grandfathers name is Alan Allison, he was born on August 1, 1928 in Burnbank Terrace, Glasgow.
The names of his parents on the birth certificate are:
John Gonnella
Christina Rae Gonnella
The surname Wyllie has also been mentioned as linked to the mystery.
If you can help at all with any details, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thank you

Mary was said to have been a governess in Bow Street, London and gone to Sebourne University in Paris. Was said to have siblings - but these stories not confirmed. Mary Carswell married William Brown 1858 Glasgow and they emigrated to New Zealand 1863. William Brown was born 8 Jul 1832 Kirkintilloch the s/o George Brown & Elizabeth Blair. Siblings Elizabeth Brown m. James Whitehill 6 Apr 1858 Calton, Glasgow (living 34 Hill St,Glasgow 1881 census), Cornelius Brown m. Mary Morrison 1871 (living146 Dalmarnock Rd, Barony 1881 census - butcher) & George Brown m. Ellen (living 206 Rutherglen Rd, Govan 1881 census - butcher). NZ family known to have contact with a cousin in Glasgow 1910 - name unknown. Piece of paper just found which may be a vital clue. It says "Captain Hill in Kirkintilloch. Edinburgh. Grandma. Jan. 45 Jamaica St, Glasgow. Taylor." How can I find residents of 45 Jamaica Street, Glasgow - possibly around 1910? How can I find information on Captain Hill in Kirkintilloch?

Hi
My name is Angela Burton. I am trying to find my boyfriend's sister, whom he has never met. My boyfriend, William Romain ( formerly Robinson ) was born at Stobhill Hospital in Glasgow on 7/7/72 and was adopted out as was his brother, Neil ( born 1970 ) to the Romain family. His sister, Davina was going to be adopted by the Romain's but an aunt decided to take Davina in and William and Neil were never able to meet her.
Davina was 1 year younger than Will, born in 1973 and that would now make her 27 years old. She is also of Pakistani and Scottish descent. Both William and Neil were adopted out as their mother had an apparent drug addiction which led to both boys having medical problems at birth.
If anyone at all knows any information about Davina's whereabouts or a Robinson family could they please e-mail me

On the face of the clock was inscribed the name of the makers - Kelvin Bottomley and Baird Ltd Glasgow (inside the clock - number 123). Is the company still going? if not is it possible to shed some light on the clock/ company- the children's imagination is really fired up and it would be nice if we could shed some light on their find!

About thirty years ago (and probably much less) a company in Glasgow produced Celtic Crosses. Where can I purchase one now? The one I want was made in antique brass silver. It was 29 inches tall including the base. The base was 4 1/2 inches tall - a tapered block of green Iona marble. The design was derived from that of the St. John's Cross at the Abbey on the Isle of Iona.

I wish how I wish that I had a little house
With a mat for the cat and a hole-y for the mouse
With a clock going tock in the corner of the room 
And a kettle and a cupboard and a big birch broom
To school in the morning the children off would run
I'd give them a kiss and a penny and a bun .................

My mind is blank from here. I remember the teacher telling us that the rythm of the poem equated the ticking of the big clock in the kitchen - I was so impressed!!!

I'm trying to find some more information about the "Hive Community Centre"
which was in Nitshill around the 80s/90s. The reason for my search is that
my mother was one of the people who helped set up this facility.
Unfortunately she died in the mid 80s shortly after it opened.

As a mark of respect for her work there, a plaque was put up in reception
(as you walked in you couldn't miss it!) with a nice little piece about
here.

Unfortunately the centre has now closed down, (I don't live in Glasgow
anymore so only found out too late) but something must have happened to that
plaque. For obvious reasons I would like to get it if possible. It would
not have been thrown away I'm sure, someone must have it. Any help would be

My neighbor and I have discovered that our great grandfathers were both from Glasgow, Lanark, High Church, born around 1830 and both families ended up settling near Malad City, Idaho, USA , after Willard, Utah, USA. We were wondering what the population of Glasgow was about that time, we have to think that they knew one another if it was a small area or town. If any one knows that population in and around 1830 or so or how to access it, we would appreciate it. Thanks in advance,
