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

crissyb
Hi heather we have quite a few things in common its uncanny my mum jessie had a sister called christine thanks for your reply.

crissyb
Hi Beth no my brother wasn't catholic and he is a bit older than you. never mind might eventually find someone who knew the burns's thanks anyway.

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

sorry i have to add it wasnt in the 1960's i knew these people stayed there. The Phillips would be the early 1970's and Harpers from around 1990 until around 2000. cheers. Liz
