Evelyn, I don't know if they would have details of where a marriage took place unless it was in that Church.
I have just checked my Birth Certificate and it gives my parents names and date of Marriage, but gives no information as to where they were married.
Baptismal, & Marriage Certificate's only give my parents names.

We have just recently managed to find out that our great g'father was married in St. Mungo's in 1876. We are still trying to find out where in Ireland he came from, as his Birth Certificate only says Born in Ireland as was his wife.


Rdem, years ago there were two cemetaries in Lambhill. Catholic and Protestant. Lambhill Cemetary and St. Kentigerns. Coming from a family of different Religions, I have relations in both. Recently I was told they are now joined together.

Heather, thanks for your reply. I might try to email the church and ask if they have any details re any of my husbands family. I would imagine they would have all been christened there. I know that the marriage I'm looking for took place in Dundalk, Louth, 24/2/1892. I'm really looking to find out where my husbands great grandfather came from. I've tried Louth but there weren't a lot of Moloneys in that vicinity at that time It's more likely to be Clare, as it is heaving with Moloneys!! I'm getting frustrated with his family history because of the Ireland link!!! Thank God mine are all scottish back to 1650!!! wink.gif

Evelyn, think how we feel in trying to trace my husband's g'g'father, Patrick O'Brien. wub.gif

There must be 1000s of men with that name in Ireland, or Irish descent.

When I was over in Ireland a couple years ago with my sister and her American husband, we traced the Chapel in County Meath where his g'father was Baptised. It was on his Baptismal Certificate. The Priest gave us the address where my bro-in-laws g'g'parents family lived, but we could not find the place.

Paul I came from Sawfield Place right off the Garscube Road, and it was a three storey tenement with four house's on each level and every level had an outside toilet. So there were twelve house with three toilets. There were no houses on the ground floor. Some of the house's had one room and kitchen, and some had two rooms and a kitchen.

Hello,
I lived in Cedar Place for years, my Grandparents lived in the Carscube Road area during the period you are refering. My Grandad's Parents and Grandparents also lived there. They came from Ireland during the period you are searching. The poeple of that area were mostly Coal miners or Foundry workers, ther were Coal Mines in Possil, and a few Iron Foundries in the area. My grandad's name was Gallagher and I Have records of his family from 1820. You can go to Park Circus to the Registry office were you can search all of the Records of Births,Deaths, and Marriages for scotland. It costs about £13 a day to use the computer, you do not have to go to Edinborgh to search now. you can also go to the Mitchell Library and search the Census's for that period. if you like the Priest at St Columba has the Parish records for both St Joseph's and St Columba's, and will allow you to look at them with an appointment. I hope this will help you in your search

Hi Sam Scott,

I was interested to see that you lived in Cedar Place. One of my husbands relatives was born in 6 Cedar Place. Are any of the houses still there?

Hello. I am interested in learning about the history of the Garscube Road-Dobbie's Loan-St. George's Rd area in Glasgow during the 1840's-1850's. My ancestors, William Logg and Barbara McLauchlan, lived there with their children, as found on the 1841 census. Then, in 1851, William is found living with one of his daughters, Hannah Bolland, on St. George's. Both of the Loggs, along with their daughter, Hannah, were born in Ireland.

I want to find out all I can about the social history of that area of Glasgow during that time, especially regarding Irish immigrants--what did the area look like, was there sort of an Irish community there, etc.?

I plan to obtain one of the Villages of Glasgow books. Any other suggestions greatly appreciated.

Hi Sandi

Talk to the librarians at Woodside Library which has some local history reference materials and books:
http://www.csglasgow.org/services/Library_...sidelibrary.htm

The Mitchell Library has a Glasgow History room which covers all areas.

Regards
Nick
