In American Census, Rachel Douglas is listed as Irish. She married a German immigrant Braitling in Pennsylvania. First son George Frederick Braitling 1873 is our ancestor. We believe she was born between 1848 and 1850. Ancestry DNA has a strong link to persons living today in the Nicholson and Duffy families.

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.
