My grandmother, Margaret McCracken Kerr was said to be born in Pollokshaws Jan. 28, 1880. I was so pleased to find your website. Looking forward to visiting online. Is Refrewshire near? It could have been her birthplace. Thank you.

Hi. I love this site! I am doing some research for my father about his parents who lived in Pollockshaw Road where he was born in 1927. His parents had a fruit shop and I am trying to find out what it was called and any other information for dad. His mother was Margaret Johnston Hepburn (nee Masterton) and his dad was Douglas Stuart Hepburn. I know it's a long shot but I dream of being able to tell him about it and even see if there is a photo. If anyone can help please e-mail me. Alison.

Do you have a printed copy of the history of Pollokshaws? I am descended from the family of Pollocks, and would be interested to find information re the ancient history of Pollocks, and possible connections of Family's Congletons/Congaltouns and also Hargreaves. If you have a printed History how much would it be? Many thanks in anticipation, Janet Harvey

Can you tell me where to find the list of hand loom weavers in Eastwood. My 3xgreat grandfather was a hand loom weaver born in Eastwood and married in Kilbarchan. His name was Thomas Dow. I live in Suffolk so it's not easy to look up information and at that time the Dow family didn't register births at church.Many thanks.
