Hi everyone, I just stumbled across this site and can't believe their are so many Glackin's around the world. Just to give you a bit of my family background, my father's name was John who had two brothers and one sister, Edward, Joe and Delia who were brought up in Motherwell Scotland. Unfortunately my dad died in 1989 age 74 and Delia who was a nun, died on March 1997 age 68. My uncle Eddie and Joe are still going to the dancing yet, only joking! but are still in reasonable health. My mothers name was Margaret Mcnally from Co.Tyrone Ireland. She and my father had nine children, Margaret, Helen, Mary, Bernadette,Patrick,Norah,Phillp myself and Delia. Firstly they lived in Carfin and then moved to Newarthill,near Motherwell in late 1959, where unfortunately my mum died at the early age of 40. Myself, I'm now the proud father of three children Jonathan age 11, Alexandra age 8 and the one and only Jack, wee monster age 7. It would be nice to hear from my fellow Glackin's out their, so don't be shy it would lovely to hear from you's.
P.SAny Glackin's in the BIG APPLE my wife and I are going out there for St Patrick's day, we fly out on March 15 with my three sisters Helen,Mary,Norah and my brother Phil. So let me know. Bernard.
