Thanks for replying. I had noticed your posting re your Henry. As a child I was in touch with my father, Joseph's, relatives but this lapsed following his death in 1969 aged 50.He was the youngest of 8, and among them there was a Henry, Catherine, John, Maggie, Rosemary. He said his father had been a coal mine foreman, and also a machine setter.I can't be sure if it was his father or grandfather who came from Ireland, but there was supposed to have been an uncle Joseph, a priest, who died in India. Perhaps I'll get up to Glasgow one day to look up my father's birth certificate.
