"Thank you. I have sent a friend request to Jens Wagner-Douglas. William Douglas who died in Schippenbeil in 1711 (my 7x grandfather) is at this point a dead end for me. And it is annoying me :-) My uncle (now dead) has allways claimed that we are…"

Here are some notes that i made.  I do not suppose this is anything new to you:

List of Scottish Settlers in Königsberg (Queensbrig), Memel and Tilsit.
In Schippenbeil (Eastern Prussia, S. of Königsberg): Douglas, Will. (1695)

G. Douglas, a native of the small town of Schippenbeil near Konigsberg, was Presbyterian clergyman of Jerichow, in the district of Magdeburg, from 1758-1772.

I would welcome a translation of this Douglas biography: http://www.deutsche-biographie.de/sfz11756.html  I have a version here: http://www.douglashistory.co.uk/history/hugodouglas.htm

but would like to do better.

Yours aye,

William

Welcome to our Community network, Geir.

 Jens Wagner-Douglas is also researching this line.  I note that I said that I would try to find out more, but have to admit that i have not yet done so.  Perhaps you can add some information?

Yours aye,

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?
