Erika, WOW, that is great history. I'm glad you're still interested in the Douglass name. I think I was looking for more birth and death dates but I can research the census on names you gave me, and I appreciate that. I was more curious about any descendants from 1644 since there was a Douglass group that came from Scotland that could fit my ancestry. If you haven't been on it, Ancestry.com is a good place to build a tree but has a continuing cost.  Best Regards and thanks for replying.

Erika,

I am researching a William H. Douglass born in KY in 1797 and am wondering if you could provide any more descendant children of your Captain Elmore Douglass, Celia, or Burchette. In the meantime I will check the best census I can for them, it may help. Michael Douglass, Utah

 
 
 

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?
