I'm trying to track down an ancestor of mine, George Adam, who is reputed to have lost his fortune in shipping and to have owned a castle (family lore). The only record I have of him is that one George Adam died in 1895 at the age of 64 in the district of Alderston, City of Glasgow. He may be my Great x 3 Grandfather. Another George Adam is recorded as having lived at 11 Alexandria Place, Partick, Glasgow, who married a daughter of William Moir b. 1813, but I don't know if they are one and the same [Source: Moir Genealogy, 1913]. This is a stab in the dark here: I am newly embarking on a family genealogy. My dad and his dad are also named George Adam and come from Glasgow. If I answer this, I can add more profiles. Any help appreciated. -- Chris Adam, Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. Adam-1498.
