I've recently been doing my family history and a lot of my dad's family were born 'n' bred in Shettleston. I, myself, was brought up in Glenalmond Street, which, I was told then, was not Shettleston, but Sandyhills! (snobbery thing I think!!) My dad's family were the Begbies and they were scattered throughout Shettleston. I still have a newspaper cliping from 1940 when my dad's grandmother, Granny Begbie died. She was apparently a very well known and popular lady, and when she died, there was a piece written about her in the local paper. If anyone out there knows any Begbies from the Shettleston, please post here.
