Anne Report 17 Apr 2009 03:26

I am trying to find any relatives or imformation on ofthe youngs from Glasgow from 1890 onwards.


Jessie Young born 1899
Annie young 1900
Frank young 1901

There parents were James Young b1870 the mothers name was Elsie i do not have a madien name for her.

The above James Young is my great grandfathers brother.

I would like to make you all aware that there is a gathering of all the clans on the 25-27th july in Edinburgh. Each clan will have family imformation, and may offer genetic testing and be able to offer clan geneoligist contact.

There are thousands of people coming from home and abroad to be at this event.

Be attending you may find valuable imformation to help you with your family tree.

Anyone wishing imformation on the gathering or the Young clan are welcome to contact me.

I do hope many of you do take the oppertunity to attend.
