Do YOU need help with tracing your Blantyre ancestors? Perhaps you want to know more about them, where they lived or what they did? Or want to ask about a building, news event or something else? I’m here to help.

Blantyre Project
offers a free resource to give you ancestry help, depending on the frequency of enquiries coming in. It’s one of the many reasons this website has become so popular. You can add your requests to the list below which forms my “to do” list keeping you updated here.

It’s a lot simpler to get started that you may think. Just tell me the full name of the person you want to know more about and who they were married to.   If you have more information, especially dates (e.g births, marriages, deaths even better!) Requests are particularly successful for investigation before 1930. As long as there’s a Blantyre related connection, I’m happy to investigate on a first come, first served basis. By asking below, you understand that any findings will be scheduled to appear on this site at a later date and with your permission, may appear in future history books. NOTE, due to work commitments, it may take several weeks to investigate, but I’ll get there! 

“We should all know where we’ve come from, before we plan on where we’re going”

If you’re commenting for first time on Blantyre Project, it may take 24 hours for your comment to appear, but it WILL be received and appear here shortly. Thanks.

  1. I am trying to do some research into where my family are from and I have found out that some of my family on my mums side came from Blantyre. My mums father was Charles Brookens Forrest who was born in Blantyre around 1894 and I think her Grandfather – Maxwell Forrest was born in Blantyre as well around 1854. I would be very grateful for some information on the above.
