Does anyone know how I could get in contact with Johnny McFaulds. He used to live in Petersburn and had sisters, two of whom were called Helen and Rosemary. His mum was called Ellen and she was a school teacher. His dad was called John and I believe he recently died. Would just like to say hello.

I am researching my roots and have found that my great grandparents, WILLIAM ALEXANDER AND ELIZABETH BLACK ALEXANDER, Left Airdrie in 1951/52 with their family of ten children, to sail to Geelong Australia.  The eldest child, Anne Black Alexander, married James Wilson shortly after landing in December 1852.  This couple hade nine children and are considered to be early pioneers of the Ballarat and Creswick area.  Other Alexander children went on to marry landowners, take up positions as Mayor of Ballarat, and even produced a conductor of the Western Australian Symphony Orchestra.  My great grandmother, ANNE BLACK WILSON ALEXANDER) was born in about 1832 and died in Ballarat in 1918.  I'd like to know what was happening in Airdrie that would prompt and entire family to migrate in 1852; do I have any relatives left in Airdrie; and where did they life.  I have had no success in finding marriage or birth certificates for the family and am at a loss to know which way to turn now.  Any information will be gratefully received.  There will always be a bed for any of my Scottish rels in Ballarat!
I am trying to find any references to a Sir William Dischington who was supposedly granted "the lands of Airdrie" in 1429. He is supposedly the grandson of Sir William Dishington of Ardross- ultimately I am trying to find if he had a daughter Elizabeth who married a "Hoppringle" -

I am trying to find out any information I can on Peter Gallagher that married Agnes Connerton in 1880 at St. Margarets Church in Airdrie. They migrated to Nova Scotia where he died in a mine in 1891. Have found some Connerton's still in Airdrie in years that followed, but have hit a dead end. Not being real familiar with local areas, places, etc. makes it hard to find anything. Peter was born in Ireland in 1855 and Agnes in Clarkston in abt 1860. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

Thomas is described my his nephew Peter Mayor CAMPBELL as "the long-armed

Hello all,

I am trying to locate the house my grandma's mother grew up in. It was called 'Croft Park'. Her name was Marion INGLIS, and she was part of the INGLIS family, headed by John INGLIS and wife, Agnes Gray INGLIS (nee WALKER). I have a photograph of it the late 1800s. 

John INGLIS (1846-1909?) was a butcher and owned a chain of butchers. This was how they afforded such a home. 

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

My grandfather James Murray Tennant, the son of Neil Tennant and Rebecca Campbell Murray was born in Airdrie.  Neil was the son of John Tennant and Marion Davidson.  John and Marion had the following children - Janet, Elizabeth, Marrion, John, William, Robert,John Louden, Andrew, Elizabeth, James, Neil Marrion, Margaret and Jane. I have yet to discover their spouses but Elizabeth married George Pitcairn and I think John married Ann Baird.  Neil came out to Australia with his three  children, Marion Davidson, James Murray (my grandfather) and William Davidson.  Two children Marion and John Murray died in Airdrie prior to their departure in 1865.  Other children born in Australia were john , Neil, Daniel Andrew, Gilbert Pitcairn, Andrew, Gilbert, Catherine. I visited Airdrie two years ago and spent a lot of time at the library going through records.  I visited their old home in Hallscraig St and walked all over the city out to the Rawyards site and back.  It was wonderful.  But as always with visitors from a long way off I ran out of time. I would be forever grateful if someone could put me in touch with any living descendants in Airdrie.  They can contact me on email Thanks Patricia Smith in Australia.

Hi, My Mother and I are trying to find out some of our family history. She has an old clock that has been in the family for generations. It says on it Call...Wire and Rope Company Airdrie, Scotland. I do not know the full name of the company, and I have been unable to find any evidence of it's existence. Can you help?  Also, we think it may mean that our ancestor ISABELLA PURVES (or PURVIS) could possibly have been from Airdrie or thereabouts. She came to New Zealand in 1849, on the Mariner. Here she married Charles Frederick Webb, on 25/12/1849. They had eight children (Joseph John 10/12/1850/ Peter Purves 15/02/1854, Cyrus Alfred 01/03/1856, Ebenezer 27/07/1857, James Costin 04/05/1859, Kenneth David 09/06/1862, Emily Alice 18/11/1863, Mary Margaret 11/06/1868). I list these in the hope that some of them may have been named after Isabella's ancestor's/relatives. Or, that some of the children may have returned, at some stage. Isabella has lied about her age on at least one occassion. ?Why? When the ship sailed, she has said she was twenty five, but when she married later that year, she said she was sixteen! So, we suspect she was born 1820-1830's. Not very specific is it!! She is proving to be very elusive. We know nothing about her parents, or any siblings. Can you please help?? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Louise Spratling

I'm hoping you may be able to help me.... I'm putting together a book which will document some of the crises to have befallen football clubs using fans' writing (by using the fans' own words I hope to truly capture the experiences and emotions - I used a similar format for a previous book and it worked really well). I'm hoping to be able to include a chapter on Airdrie - covering the demise of the old club and formation of the new. It's a story that should be publicised to the footballing World as widely as possible, I believe. However, I will need help from Aidrie fans. Would you be willing, or could you suggest someone who could pen a piece on Airdrie for inclusion in the book? Any help you could give would be much appreciated. Details are obviously limited in this e-mail, but if you drop me a line if you're interested I can tell you more.  Looking forward to hearing from you. George Rowland

Hi all My name is Casey and I am searching for any people with the surname WARNOCK. My Great grandparents Thomas Coffee(Coffey) and (Elsie)Sarah Warnock lived in 43 Wellwind St AIRDRIE and migrated to Western Australia in 1927, a year after my grandmother Beatrice Coffee(Coffey)was born. They had 8 children, 6 boys and 2 girls. My great grandmother came from County Monagh in Ireland and had family in Scotland.

They came on the ship S.S Bennalla from England to Perth in 1927. If anybody has any information in Airdrie on Warnocks/Coffees or you have either surname, please e-mail me. Casey Butler

Hi, I'm Debbie Whidden from Michigan (U.S.A.). My father was Edward John Smyth.  Born Dec.31-1913 in Manse Place, Airdrie, Scotland. Son of Vincent and  Rose/Roseann Keenan, they where married on Dec.31-1900 in Airdrie. They had  Children that I know, Elizabeth, John, Margaret dad. What I need is who our  Vincent parents and roseann Keenan parent, because they're about five Rose in  Glasgow, high church, Glasgow, Hutchesontone, Glasgow. Clyde, Glasgow, new  Monkland.Hamiton, so I don't know the one I'm looking for that is my dad  Mother, I don't know if Vincent was born there or Ireland or for Roseann. My  Dad birth record only have what I just out on this board, I was little went  He died in 1972 in det, mich.i don't know went they move to the u.s.a.maybe  1924-30 Detroit, MI.Lost some records due to a fire. so on the marriage  records would have the parents of Vincent and Roseann, and then I would know where to look in Scotland or Ireland. I don't the birth of Vincent or  Roseann.maybe your census would show that too. I don't know much about my  family even in Det, MI,. Records here only show is job in 1932 just before he  married my mother. My email is I am trying to get link to  the past. Margaret married a Heron and Elizabeth married a Sutherland. My dad  married in Det, MI, to a Neveu, I don't if they were married when they got or  If they where all little. Because if they (Vincent and rose) came to Mich, I  can't find them unless they died after the 1950. It's hard here unless they  had, so I hope someone can find my family and when they left  there.  Thank you so much. Debbie Whidden from Michigan. P.s how do I get a Census, marriage.

I left Airdrie in 1948. I worked as a miner. I emigrated here to Australia in 1958 where I remained in the industry. I retired from work in late 1984.I have written a book of my life story and have had it self published. It has been selling quite well. Much of the story is set in Airdrie and Fife from i930's to 1958 when I moved to Australia. I am now hoping to do a story on mining disasters. I was wondering if anyone in the Monklands area could give me any information they may have on any disaster or could they steer me on to an access I could use to gather reliable data. I would certainly appreciate any assistance. I still have relatives in the area. I have made many visits back home but I am now retired and no long go on long flights. Thank you for any assistance you can give me. Bobby Moore, late of 46 Whinhall Avenue, and before that 14 Hamilton Drive Rawyards e-mail Bobby Moore

I am looking to locate a local registry for a marriage of my ancesters that occurred there in 1847. I have  tried every possible avenue to locate this information and was wondering if you may have a local person interested in being hired to do some research for me. This line has been lost and recently found and I have recently been told by my cousin that many of my relatives still reside in Airdrie by the last name  of Shields. The marriage I'm looking for however, took place between Mary Campbell and  John Johnston in 1847. Thank you so much, and if you can refer me I'd appreciate it. e-mail Maureen Marella
