|About Chisholms of Lanarkshire
My father, Evan Singer Chisholm was born in Carluke on 14th January 1930. He was the eldest son of
George Cunningham Chisholm and Euphemia Singer Nicholson.
In Carluke at that time there were many family members, many Chisholms,Nicholsons, Sinclairs,
Singers, Cunninghams and others whose relationships I am currently researching in detail to put
leaves on the branches of the tree that is my father's family.
I am beginning to see their life stories evolve as I uncover data. These stories are as much a part
of our family story as the documents that bear each family name.
I will write the stories with as much insight as possible and leave them here on this website for
other family members to add to or simply enjoy. Many of my father's ancestors had hard lives, but
they were interesting lives, real lives. Linked together by names, they are and were part of a
county of Scotland that was very much home to each and every one of them.
Home is where the heart resides, and for my father it was always Carluke.
