"That I've known outside of my own family that I've always known"-that didn't make any sense, did it? Forgive me, I've had a long day.

I don't have a tree on Ancestry, no. I am the genealogist of the family, so my mom certainly doesn't. I am excited to meet another of my Douglas family... actually the first one I've known outside of my own family that I've always known. I can give you lots of information if you like, I have done a lot of research on Alonzo!

Bessie was Alonzo Douglas' daughter.  Is your mom in the Douglas line? I had looked at your pictures of Alonzo's homestead, and was fascinated.  Would it be okay with you if I attach them to my family tree? Do you or your mom have a family tree on Ancestry?

My mom grew up in the Norcatur area. She just told me she went to school with a lot of Knapps. So, she is distantly related with them, then! How neat :)

Making conections

The more information you can give about the people you mention, the more chance there is of someone else connecting with your family.

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Professions also help.

'My great-grandmother mother was a Douglas from Montrose' does not give many clues to follow up! But a bit of flesh on the bones makes further research possible. But if we are told who she married, what his profession was and where the children were baptised, then we can get to work.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
