Crissy, I don't know your family but your name amused me as my mum's maiden name was Burns and her Christian name was, Christina.
My mum, Christina Curran nee Burns had eight children and she had a sister Jessie Burns. smile.gif
My mum's family the Burns, were from Kilsyth.

crissyb there is a site called Raised in Easterhouse and proud of it, you might find something there. We lived in Errogie Street and Duntarvie Rd during that period, Funnily enough there was a boy in my class called Frank Burns and he lived in Easterhouse. That was St Pauls

i knew a family called Phillips who stayed in number 26 Auchinlea Road, if memory serves me right. they had 2 daughters and a son called Alan, they went to St Leonrads, and guess Alan be around 62-63 now? The Harpers stayed in the square at Auchinlea as well and were well known. They had 3 boys and a girl.I stayed in Lochdochart Road, with my brothers Brian and Peter. Both parents, Tilly and Peter now gone. would love to hear from anyone who has any memories. My name was Elizabeth Carmichael (now Smith) smile.gif
