Bearsden section of Antonine Wall protected

100 years ago to day - in the Glasgow Herald

At a meeting of the Glasgow Archaeological Society last night the acting secretary reported that arrangements had been completed between Mr Douglas of Mains and the First Commissioner of Works, whereby two acres of land, lying to the south of the cemetery at Bearsden and containing a very well preserved section of the Antonine Wall had been placed under the Ancient Monuments Act, thus securing for all time the preservation of this valuable relic. As a result of representations made some time ago by the society, the Parish Council of New Kilpatrick had enclosed another part of the wall lying within the cemetery at Bearsden and had opened the negotiations now completed regarding the more important portion lying on Mr Douglas's property.

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?
