Thank you to Richard Burt who wrote:

The Janitor

"My great grandfather Patrick Keirnan was a school janitor in Edinburgh. On his Death Certificate, it says that  he was a school janitor and died in Craigentinny School House in 1937.

 I know the primary school opened in 1935.  Could this be the school he worked in?  I have a good photo of him in his janitors uniform."

Hi Richard:

Yes, it seems very likely to me that it would have been Craigentinny Primary School where your grandfather was janitor in the 1930s.

Thank you to Richard Burt for writing again.  This time, Richard sent me the photo of his grandfather that he mentioned above.

"Here is the photo of my great grandfather that I mentioned above.  I hope it is good enough for the web site.   I was given the photo 6 months ago and have been intrigued by it ever since:

I've now found information about relatives that I never knew existed in USA, Patrick Peter Kiernan (my granny's father).  The history is very interesting and the whole story of where his children and grandchildren are now is fascinating."

Hi Richard:

Thanks for the copy of your photo above.  I did a little restoration to it and have now added it to this page (above).  I hope you are happy with the result.  I wish you all the best for your ongoing family history research.

Peter.
