>I'm new to this list so thought I would introduce myself.
>My chief interests are in the RITCHIE family, who lived ( and still live) in Wishaw from at least the 1890's, and the WOOD family who moved to Carluke in the mid 1890's from Surrey (although they may have had previous links to the area).
>The WOOD family initially moved to a cottage at Bridge End, Carluke and established the carpentry business of "Thomas Wood & Sons" in a ramshackle old building (demolished in 1979) more or less opposite Carluke Town Hall.
>A Thomas WOOD emigrated to Australia around 1948, he had a large and growing family with whom we have completely lost touch.
>The RITCHIE's were mainly steel workers and miners although William RITCHIE was a barber in Wishaw before and after the Second World War and took the tools of his trade with him during the War in an old gramaphone case - making a small fortune sparing his fellow soldiers from the attentions of the amy's barbers!
>Other surnames I am researching include: BRADBURN, McDONALD, McQUEEN, HUGHES, RUSSELL, PATERSON, LAIRD, POOLE
>I would be delighted to hear from anyone sharing these areas of interest and indeed from anyone whose ancestors may have run across mine and who may be able to shed light on the people behind the names.
>Norman Wood
