"Welcome to the group, Linda. We have already communicated through other channels, so it is good to have the additional details you provide here.
I'll have a root around the Archives and see what pops up.
Which Douglas line are you researching? Dates and places help making connections.
My grandmother was Isabella Pow. My Great grandfather and great grandmother was Alexander Pow and Elizabeth Eleanor Brown. Alexander Pow’s Mother and father were John Pow and Isabella Douglas. So my great great grandmother was Isabella Douglas Born Feb 1, 1847 in Whitburn. Her mother and father were Catharine Gardner and Alexander Douglas. Catharine and Alexander were married on June 11, 1868. I am looking for more information on Alexander Douglas and Catharine Gardner and am hoping someone may have more information.

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?
