family tree dna and ancestry dna tests have been submitted. To date I have received dna matches to trees which include Hon James Douglas, 14th Earl of Morton and James Lord Douglas van Drumlanrig III, whose son was William Douglas, Earl van Queenberry. I have no idea how I am actually connected.

You should consider joining our Irish group as well, Lois.

Finding Irish ancestors is a tough one.

Welcome to our group, Lois.

If you can give dates and events (birth, marriages, death) that all helps others who might be able to link into your family.

Yours aye,

William

 
 
 

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?
