Re: Surname: Glasgow

Hello Jean,
I saw your reference to doing research in Glasgow.  I have traced my family line to there around 1800.  Unfortunately the trail goes cold at that point.  Do you provide research?

I wish you had put this in just one day earlier.  I ran across a Glasgow family just yesterday in the library while working with census records.
If you wish to email me privately I will go back over what I did yesterday and try to narrow down the areas I researched for you.  I recall being quite surprised and thought "they must have been from Glasgow and took the name as remembrance"!

My friends describe my personality as "intense".  I think they are being very kind........  ;o)
I have another question that is perhaps a bit off topic, for the Scots on the list................my g-g-g-g-g-grandmother's maiden name was Glasgow (Agnes), married to John Snoddy.  I cannot find my Snoddy line past this generation right now. Agnes' parents were Hugh and Janet Kilpatrick (possibly Patrick) Glasgow.  Is the surname Glasgow a place name or was the city of Glasgow named for a family?
