Hi Tom, have you tried www.ScotlandsPeople.gov.uk
. You might be able to find a death or birth cert. Scottish death certs give a lot of information, they do charge a fee I think it is around Ј6 or a little more for so many credits. Cambuslang might have a local history section in their library. You could also try Google maps to see the area although there has been a lot of regeneration in this area but just a thought.
Tom, more info needed before going onto scotlandspeople. Try to find his date of birth, place of birth, parents names etc. Scotlandspeople is a wonderful tool, but it is a bottomless pit if you haven't done your homework.
