About the study
I started by compiling a database of all Glackins born, married or died in my native Scotland since records began in 1855. This database includes the most common variants and misspellings of the name that I have come across.
My objective is to ensure that I have accounted for every Glackin/Glacken family tree. In the course of my contacts with fellow Glackin/Glacken descendents, I have helped people around the world learn more about their Glackin/Glacken ancestry, although as you can appreciate it is very much a “work in progress”
I provide family tree information from my research at no charge, and keep confidential any information you share about living members of your family tree. I very much hope I will hear from you, so I can identify your family tree and share information with you regarding your family tree from my extensive research. All I need to get started is any information you may know about your Glackin/Glacken ancestors.
In the 1818 UK Census there were only 271 people with the name Glackin or Glacken and variants probably as a result of misunderstandings between the occupier and the census enumerator. 221 in England, 46 in Scotland and 4 in Wales.
