I have been looking through an old photo album of my Mothers, and in it I have found a photo of a house with the inscription.
house where I was born. "Elderslea" Lenzie... which I think ! is near Cradorss. Scotland. I am wondering if anyone can tell me if it is still there.
Mt Grandfather William Baillie Hair had a farm which I think this is the house on it. There is another of a long driveway and also another of family standing by heavy roaring lions in what looks to be the front of the house.
I did post one of my G/Mothers, and Margaret said that she would have a look or her brother would. Maybe she could find this one too IF it is still there, Grateful Thanks.
AN OPPS.. Can anyone tell me HOW to get the photo download right ??- I have tried and tried and it keeps coming back that it is too big. yet looking at it whew ! and eye glass is needed !

First thing is I don't know of and cannot locate Cradorss on any map - do you mean Cardross?

Lenzie is NE of Glasgow. Use an online map to locate it - e.g. streetmap (http://www.streetmap.co.uk/)

If this is a large farmhosue, it may show up on an old large-scale map - using a search engine just enter "old-maps" and a site should turn up which is a bit slow, but does show maps of places at various times in the 19th and 20th centuries.

You could try Royal Mail Address Finder (http://www.royalmail.com/portal/rm)to see if there is still a property of the name in Lenzie - Click on 'Find a postcode'

A second thread has been created with the same query. In order to avoid confusion or folks proividing the same help in two different locations, I've closed this thread.

Please update this open thread (http://www.british-genealogy.com/forums/showthread.php?t=26691)with any help you can provide to robbiej.


NB - To robbiej. No offence meant by this action. In the past we've found that having two thread running at the same time, asking the same thing causes a bit of confusion, especially to the likes of me as I am a bear of little brain. Hopefully having one thread updated with help will be easier for you to put some perspective on what has been offered as help. This thread will remain on the forums in case anyone comes across it in a general search. It has a link to the open thread.
