Thanks to Sally for the following:

Watercolour of Old Wynd looking to Trongate from an album of 37 watercolours of Old Glasgow, Partick and Paisley by William Reid Mainds (fl. 1885-93). The Old Wynd linked the Trongate with the Bridgegate. The Old Wynd and New Wynd were laid out in 1573 to link the Trongate with the Bridgegate. In the 19th century the City Improvement Trust created Osborne Street which cut across both, and the railway obliterated the southern part. William Reid Mainds' watercolour is a rare illustration of one of the old roads going south from the Trongate,and shows the typical range of range of buildings which could be found there.

Welcome to our group, Timothy.

Many members of the Douglas family have Indian connections, and I would welcome further research into those families.

 
 
 

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?
