Hi Gina jeanie,

The address you mentioned where your family might have lived was a hospital in 1935 , some years before that it was poorhouse,
133, Balornock road, Glasgow, i think it is still a hospital but now known as Stobhill Hospital.

they definately departed britain to go to california,
i found a carraige clock with a message on it saying to john and margaret from all at carricks good luck
this was stamped nov 1959! so i know it was the tail end of the year!

HI is their any one who can help?
I know every one must here this all the time but i really do need urgent help! I have been searching for a specific family that could mean for me the medical information that i so badly need i am in pain 24/7 and cant take much more!
my mother is also ill and after asking family members of any nurological problems within the family history,we have lerned that my gran is not my real gran and you can imagine how devistated my mother is ! but bottom line i need to find this lady can any one help.

Her name is margaret moir milne
i am not sure what her exact age is but my papa was born in 1929! she married him in 1952 his name was john newlands they lived in glasgow (310 kenedy street or 133 barlornock road) both worked in the sheet metal factory called carricks. They had 2 children both girls 1 in 1954 called mary newlands and the other in1956 jeanie newlands i have her birth lines.
In 1959 john and margaret took the girls and headed to california i am lead to belive that margaret had family there!
something went and john returned to glasgow with his daughters with out margaret in1960/1.
she returned at a later date. as far as i know she had more children to two other men i think she had a baby girl around 1962 and called her linda and a boy a couple of years later.
the only other info i have is that i know margaret had an older sister called elizabeth milne married name hunter she had a boy in 1954 give or take a year.
