Hi Russell Lynn,

Thank you for your message! I noticed that your earliest ancestor is William Drysdale, Dunfermline area. My earliest is James Drysdale, born 1821 in what is now called Dalgety Bay, just south of Dunfermline. James' first born son was named William. Years later, he was apparently living with his wife Ann at Malcolm's Beath Farm, Dunfermline. I think therefore that there is a good chance we have a connection from that region.  

Best,

Robert

Thank you. Will gradually put information on this site about my Douglas(s) family.

Hi Russel! Thank you for the welcome! According to what my family has found so far our George Douglass lived in North Kingstown, R.I. I'm assuming that is where his grave is, it is not listed on the information I have. We're not even 100% sure of his date of death. It's listed between Oct. 15, 1754 and Nov. 1754. We are wanting to find more information on him and validate what we have found but we haven't had much luck so far.

Russell,

Sorry, no Alexanders in my line.  Very interesting that you was born in Utah. My line of Douglass's (starting with William Mochrie Douglass) came to Utah originally and then some of his children went to Idaho to settle.  From Idaho some of my line went to California where my dad, Dan Douglass was born. Dad's family moved back to Idaho while he was in elementary school and then moved to Utah while he was in 8th grade.  I was born here in Utah.  For me that kind of takes my Douglass line full circle as far as Utah goes. 

 
 
 

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?
