My Birth Certificate says I was born at the Glasgow Maternity Hospital on the eighth of February, 1950. The home address of my parents was 47 Nethan Street, Govan.

If anyone can post a picture of either, then or now, I'd be ever grateful !

I was born at home too, at 31 the Rand Square, Eastriggs, Dumfriesshire. Have you noticed how small the line is for you to put your birthplace on forms etc. It is very hard to get all that, well the Eastriggs Dumfriesshire anyway on the space provided laugh.gif I didn't come to Glasgow until I was 10 years old.

Hello Mags

Was that above or below Garbraid Avenue? My Dad's brother, Hugh Harris lived in the last close at the juction with Garbraid Avenue in the Corporation houses. So with you talking about the big room , I take it you lived in the tenements above Garbraid Avenue. My mother worked in the wee grocers shop in Guthrie Street above Garbraid Avenue in the late 1930's.

Many years later, the first house I lived in after being married was a single end in Balfour Street.

My birth certificate says where I was born 10 Clairmont gardens Glasgow. would this be like a nursing home?

This is not a family address.My date of birth is March 1945.

My birth was registered at Kelvingrove district is that where this address is?

This post is so old this reply will probably not be noticed, but I was researching 10 Clairmont Gardens and came across this. My mum was born at this address in March 1947 and her mum confirmed it was a nursing home at the time.
