I have just started trying to research my family tree. To be truthful I'm not sure where to start, I have got as far as my g.grandparents, but I am looking for information on a Bridget Mullen and James Mullen both born around 1826 in Ireland they were living in Linlithgow, Scotland in 1881 and had a son John born around 1854. James Mullen was a Railway Labourer and John Mullen a General Labourer.
I don't know if they do have any connection to my grandfathers family who came from Bridgend Rows, Linlithgow. My Grandfather was William Mullen b.11/6/11 d. 15/11/84, he married my grandmother on 31/12/46 she was Margaret Muirhead Mitchell b. 27/11/16 d.28/1/89. His parents were John Mullen and Jane Mullen (nee Ramsay) they married 31/1/01.
