Guivry (Aisne - France) was "adopted" by the city of Glasgow

Hi all,

In 1919, just after the great war, many towns and villages having suffered or been destroyed, cities volunteered to be "their godmothers".
Concerning my village, Guivry (Aisne - France), it was "adopted" by the city of Glasgow.
Do you think it's possible to find archives about this event?

Hello from the Somme, hello 'neighbour'

Is there something in the archives départementales Aisne ?

Here, Montdidier was 'adopted' too (Exeter), there is not much in the archives départementales 80 (but there is about other towns), we got in touch with an historical society in Exeter, they gave us some (not many) documents they found.

Perhaps you can find historians in Glasgow who are interested.

Do you have a 'Glasgow street' in your village ? You should !!!;)

kind regards, martine

Bonjour de la Somme, bonjour 'voisin'

Y a-t-il quelque chose dans les archives départementales de l'Aisne?

Ici, Montdidier a été «adopté» aussi (Exeter), il n'y a pas grand-chose dans les archives départementales 80 (mais il y en a d'autres), nous avons contacté une société historique à Exeter, ils nous ont donné quelques documents ils ont trouvé.

Peut-être que vous pouvez trouver des historiens à Glasgow qui sont intéressés.

Avez-vous une «rue de Glasgow» dans votre village? Vous devriez !!!;)

Cordialement, martine

Bonjour voisine,

Eh non, pas de rue de Glasgow dans notre village. Il faut dire que je n'ai découvert le parrainage qu'il y a peu de temps en "fouillant" sur internet.

Je vais tenter la piste des sociétés d'histoire de Glasgow.

A bientôt.

Gada

No Glasgow street in our village. It must be said that I discovered the sponsorship that there is little time by "digging" on the internet.

I will try the track of the history societies of Glasgow.
