"Welcome to our group, Sharon.
I have sent you a private message. Please look for it.
I am attempting to build up my knowledge of South African Douglases, as little of them is documented. You may care to join the group here studying that…"
Which Douglas line are you researching? Dates and places help making connections.
Looking for family members, my dads name was Petrus Christoffel Douglas, born 29 january, he had 3 sons, and 2 daughters, was once married to a woman, then re married my mom who was at that time Elisabeth magdalena Bronkhorst, he has 3 sisters, Edith, Patsy, stienie, and 3 brothers,Chris, John and his youngest brother Steven, I am Sharon Douglas, daughter of Petrus Christoffel Douglas, also known as Victor, he was born in south africa.
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?
