"My family actually immigrated to Massachusetts around 1730, then worked its way to Brookline, New Hampshire. My ancestor Frederick moved to Michigan around 1840, and that's where I was born. My move to North Carolina is very recent."

If of North Carolina, and had FTDNA done, there is this group you may be interested in; https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/argyll-colony-north-carolina/about

The admin is great, but I have questions about that co admin.

Bet you the ones in Scotland are black Douglas. Have you heard of the "Black Douglas", and those in Jamaica are "White Douglas".

ABOUT "AFRICAN AMERICAN LIVES 2"
"The critically acclaimed PBS broadcasts AFRICAN AMERICAN LIVES (2006) and OPRAH'S ROOTS (2007) shined a national spotlight on the powerful process of discovering one's family history.

Did you know that "Gomes" is a Portugese surname? Peter Gomes of Havard also, and was found to have ancestry that were not slaves, because Quaker, of the Bailey family freed them. Did you know Frederick before he was Douglass was a Bailey?

The precusor to African slaves, in the Barbados Colony origanaly Portugese, then of England, were Scottish, POWs from the Cromwellian Civil War.

Barbados is Anglican, and the Hamilton were Scottish Anglican, and Alexander was from the West Indies. This means that Alexander Hamilton's family could be from indentured Scots fighting for Charles II. Also means as for us Elliott in America, skin coloration is not a factor, in determining Scottish Y-DNA.

With http://forebears.io/surnames/ just insert surname at end.
Using http://named.publicprofiler.org/ with Douglas, and Elliot with a single ending letter, they concentrate more on the Scottish side of the border. With Douglass, and Elliott with a double ending last letter they concentrate on the English side of the border, with Elliott highly concentrated in Co. Fermanagh, Ulster, Ireland.

Hi, Ian! Who did you get your DNA testing done with? Look into the Yahoo group for Family Tree DNA's Douglas project.  They should be able to help fit your results in with everyone else's. 

 
 
 

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?
