Coatbridge Irish Genealogy Project

This is a study that is being researched now. If you had Irish ancestors who moved over the sea to Scotland,they may have well turned up in Coatbridge. Once described as "Hell on earth",i was to find a Great Uncle here working as a blast furnesser,the hardest job going.
The study which is ongoing describes life in Coatbridge and the result of so many Irish moving there. You can include your ancestors if they moved to or came from the area.

  1. Is there a listing of Headstone Inscriptions for the Coatbridge area. James Gunn, a Roman Catholic, died in 1905.

    Thank you, Jim Gunn

  3. I am looking for the given name of a man with the surname Anderson, who married Elizabeth Doyle, probably in Coatbridge. They had at least 2 children, William and Gerald, born about 1906 and 1913 in Coatbridge. Elizabeth and her sons left for the United States in the early 1920's, settling in Buffalo, New York. I would very much like to learn the given name of her husband and any other details pertaining to this family, as they are ancestors of my son-in-law and granddaughter. Thank you.

  6. Hello,
    As you can see these are the records of William, Gerald and Elizabeth. So far i have not been able to find their father's name but keep looking on here

  7. I have found your Elizabeth on a family tree. She was born in yorkshire 1884 but living in Coatbrdge when she was 7 .
    She married a Gerald Anderson in 1910,could be a mistake. I think its the same Elizabeth as she is recorded as going to Buffalo to stay with her brother Charles.
    If you would like to send me your e-mail i can help you farther

  8. The family tree that i looked at belongs to a James Doyle from Buffalo New York. He must be decended from Elizabeth's brother. He has the names of Elizabeth's parents on his tree.
