Poetry reading popular

Many thanks for informing your members and website visitors about my poetry reading in Helensburgh Library on March 5 2009.

I'm pleased to say that it was well received by the large audience who attended, and we had an excellent question and answer session and discussion afterwards.

Research into bus company

I have recently been looking into the history of the original Garelochhead Bus Company and its predecessors, with the eventual aim to put together a website.

My target is a website, but there is a considerable amount of work to be done before I would consider it a live website, especially regarding photographs etc.

Search for ancestor's details

I AM a descendant of an early Helensburgh resident and I am trying to find out more about him and his parents.

My ancestor was Hugh McGregor, who was born in Helensburgh on October 7 1827 — only 25 years after the town became a burgh of barony — and I would like to find details of his parents.
