Re: Eagle Inn, Condorrat

In this old map Smithstone row is at the top and Condorrat is at the bottom:
http://maps.nls.uk/geo/explore/#zoom=15 ... yers=6&b=1

probably a mile or so as the crow flies.

There is a Smithstone road in the area, but the Smithstone Row would be where Hopepark Drive Croy is now.

Re: Isabella Shewan - daughter of Mary Fraser, Alexander Shewan

Ah, there was an older David Hird on the census Paula , but I'd dismissed him on account of his age.

So you and Rachel are connected in some way. Excellent.

Re: Looking for family in 1901 and/or Marriage Record

Have you checked the little girl's birth? that should say where and when the parents were married [though depending on how wet the babbie's head was, the date could be slightly off] Worth looking for any new born deaths in Glasgow between Patrick & Elizabeth too [there are a few Gorbals/Hutchisontow...

Re: Cemetery

There are no hard and fast rules about where you were buried, it depended on a lot of factors. Where you originally came from [if you'd moved into the city some people preferred to be buried back 'home'] where your family were buried [if there was space in a family lair that would be used] what reli...

What a lovely clear photograph.

Regarding her age, I would say 8 - 10 years?

Today was a snippet about the prevalence of Douglas Haig as babies' names during WWI, yesterday was about the 'Mother of Japanese Whisky' Rita Cowan from Kirkintilloch. Another one was about the Fl...

Re: George Pringle b. Saracen St Glasgow 1877

What address does George give on his fathers DC?
that could help narrow things down a little.

I tried searching 1911 for a geoge ?rin* aged 30-40 and got a dozen Pringles scattered around the country.

And a very Happy New Year to you & yours too.

Re: Name Change on birth certificate Martin or Mellis

Have you found her on the 1911 census? That could help with more information depending on who she was living with then and what the relationship is described as.

Henderson is a fairly Scots surname in my experience, you may well find a granny of that name lurk ing around the records.
