The Friends of Glasgow Necropolis, a Scottish Charitable organisation which is run entirely by volunteers, launch Phase I of their Public Appeal for the restoration of the Monteath Mausoleum.

The target for Phase I is to have reached £20,000 by September 2014.

Phase II will be to have reached £40,000 by September 2015 which will enable work to commence to have the Mausoleum restored, the full cost of which is estimated at £80,000. I is to have reached £20,000 by September 2014.

This wonderful Mausoleum is the final resting place of two brothers Major Archibald Douglas Monteath who died in 1842, and James Monteath Douglas who died in 1850.

£13,517 of £40,000 funds raised so far.

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
