I descend from Cargills and Boaths of Arbroath. I would like to connect with someone from these families. My grandfather, Alfred William Farquhar Menmuir Cargill, Jr was born in Arbroath in 1901. His mother was Isabella Boath from the same town.

Hello there,
I was born in the fife jamieson in 1944 but lived in Panmure Street and Horologe Hill before joining the airforce in 1960. I went to Parkhouse School and then Hayshead, finishing at the High School.
My closest friends were Alan Russell, Mike Reid, Geordie and Niel Hadden all of whom I went to school with.

i still have a brother (Norman) and sister (elizabeth) live in the town so I still visit from time to time. So many changes.
Current Location: Norfolk

Born in Glasgow, moved to the Elms aged 4 as part of the overspill of the late 60's, lived there whilst at Inverbrothock and High schools, I remember the pre-fabs down the road which were soon replaced with more new houses. Have fond memories of tree swings at Hercs Den, jumpin pipes at Hidden Valley and taking short cuts over there to school, bonfires at the Park on Guy Fawkes night, Guisin at Halloween, Itchy Coos at the Bushey Park and fly fags in the Western Cemetry (dead men don't tell tales). Timmergreens Youth Club, the Disc at the Community Centre, the Bathing Pool Disco, the Marine, Neeters, the Imperial/Malacca, the Stables at Seaton Hoose (the bucket of water song and the boat dance) stopping the bus back to town at Flemings to get fresh baked pies, 1the Meadowbank on Sundays and the Viewfield, live music round the pubs. Still love live music, drag my kids round the festivals on the South Coast in my Camper Van most summers now. Lived briefly in Colliston and Montrose before moving to Cornwall, London and settling in Poole 20 years ago. It's a lovely part of the country and the weather's better but I do miss the wit, humour and sense of fun - they just don't get it here. Would love to hear from anyone who shares these memories.
