Interested in the History of New Monkland, Airdrie?

Updated: Jul 1

As many of you will know I have regularly posted about the Parish of New Monkland which is situated in Airdrie, Lanarkshire.


I grew up in the area & my University Dissertation related to some of the more prominent families of the area, in addition to this I also analysed a lot of the local records for many of my regular assessments.


On starting up my business one of the first projects I worked on was to index & photograph all of the Gravestones at New Monkland Churchyard. A Mammoth task which resulted in a list of 5300 names (details can be found within the Projects page of my website).



There are a couple of other projects which relate to the Area on the backburner…if only I had more days in my week to work on them!


As I live pretty local many clients interested in having research in the area completed have found me via ‘Google’ search & I have carried out work on their behalf.


As a Parish within Lanarkshire, New Monkland was pretty big & you only need to look around the Churchyard to see how mobile people from the area actually were. Many ended up in the USA, Australia, Burma, Dutch Guiana, Canada, South Africa, Hong Kong & many more far flung places.


I recently took part in an online Genealogy Conference where I gave a talk on ‘Using Facebook for Genealogy’. During this presentation I show beginners how to navigate Facebook & make the best use of some of the groups which perhaps could give them more information on the History of places, regiments & many other topics which could assist their research or specific interest (see link below) & it got me into thinking that even the place where I carried out so much research did not have a Facebook page dedicated to its past!


So, the idea of creating a group where anyone with an interest in New Monklands Past could join to share information, ask questions, engage with others & learn more about the area came about.



No matter if you live local, are a descendant of one of those who left the area in search of a better life or just have an interest in history all are welcome.
