Name: Mina McGean
Born: Canada
Current Location: Canada
My maiden name is Ironside, and I have been researching our family tree in and around Arbroath for about 40 years or so. Family names of interest are Ironside, Tosh, Mitchell, Monro, Alexander, Irvine, Lisk and Meffan. My dad was born in Arbroath, and we still have plenty of family there. Thank you so much for putting the Shoppie back online!!! Lovely to see all the posts, photos, people listings, genealogy, etc. available again. Arbroath deserves to have such a great online presence, and it's wonderful to see it back. Good Job! to the webmasters, and thanks for managing to have it back up and running again.
I was just in Arbroath with my Dad, my first visit there, in June and loved it all. It may have changed considerably since my Dad grew up and left, but it is still a very nice town, and we thoroughly enjoyed seeing it and looking up the old addresses, and just spending time with family.

New TopicNEIL RAMSAYPosted by grapegrower
03 Jan 2009 :  02:41:16 AM
Name: Neil James Ramsay
Born: Melbourne, Victoria, Australia
Current Location: NSW, Australia

My father, James Sibbald Ramsay, was born in Arbroath on 24th november 1909. His father was Arthur Alexander Ramsay, mother was Bella Carrie Ramsay (nee Buick). Their address was 2 Cairnie Place. I was unable to find this location during my visits. The family emigrated to Australia after WW1 following a short time in Glasgow. I have visited Arbroath three times since 1966 and met some distant relations on my granmother's side during my first visit. I remember a Jock Ritchie who was a sea captain of some note I believe. I am still looking for any family members that may still live in Arbroath.

I lived at Warddykes farm as a child with my older brother, John and my two younger brothers, Tommy and Billy (Billy was born at Warddykes). We went to St Vigeans school. Our first headmaster was Mr Oliver, then when he retired, it was Mr Dundas. We then went on to Arbroath High School, before leaving Arbroath to live in England (my father was English and met my mother (mary Anderson - Warddykes Farm, Arbroath) during the war. He was in the RAF and they met at the Seaforth Hotel, at a dance. Married at St Vigeans Church in 1947 and the rest is history. I can only remember a few of the children in my class at St Vigeans, and none from High School !!! Christopher Nichol, Elizabeth Smith, John Longmuir, my best friend (who sadly died some years ago now (Jennifer Wilson), Joyce Tindall, to name but a few. I am saddened to see that the farm is no more and been replaced by houses and a school. IS THE BURN STILL AT THE BOTTOM OF THE FIELD ??? CAN U STILL WALKK FROM ST VIGEANS TO THE DAM, where Rosie and Jock the swans lived ??
Im actually visiting, with my family, in August this year - so look forward to a trip down memory lane _whats left of the memory_ ........

My byname is Planter and I went to Ladyloan and the High School. I was Head Boy at the High School, an appointment that I am still taking flak for! Actually it was pretty much a fun undertaking as I recall. Anyway, I moved to the USA in 1991, I am married to Valerie and we have two children, Emily and Laura.

My parents are in Arbroath in Union Street East and my brother lives in England.

I bring the family over around once a year usually in the November timeframe as it''s a Thanksgiving holiday here.

Feel free to email me.

Current Location: Boston, MA USA
