Hi , am new to all this but my elderly parents appear keen to find out a little bit more about their roots. I live in Rochdale but my father William McGlade was born in Stockton on Tees in 1925 , his father was John McGlade and he was also from the north east of England. There are five or six McGlades in the Rochdale tel book but god knows how we are related. My father is convinced we hail from Ireland originally but who knows how far back that is ??
