Thanks for your reply, sorry I took so long getting back. The family history is very sketchy as far as Glackin is concerned:
1.My Grandfather was William Glackin born in Glasgow circa 1900-1903 and died in 1986. He obviously married late in life as my dad is the oldest and was born in 1940. His accent was Northern Irish, there is possibility his mother left when he was a young boy.
2. He married Mary Dougan from Donegal in Glasgow, and they had four children Sarah( Died at the age of 1), William, Robert and Charlie. 3.William is my father all he remembers is he had family (Peter and Maggie Glackin) in Glasgow's South side, Possilpark? (maybe) not sure of exact location.
I am trying to assemble a family tree and any information would be useful.
