please remind me the steps to get to my tree

Hi William , can you please remind me the steps to get to my tree ! once logged in on the Douglas Archives , I can never work out how to
there really NEEDS to be a simple link /Navagation button "MY TREE " or "GO TO MY TREE"
please tell me the steps to get into it ? I think this might not encourage people to edit their trees , if its hard to get to
I thought my tree was lost when that crash happened a year or two back . thanks Jackie

Jackie,

The tree that you had was separate from the main tree - and we did lose it a couple of years ago.

I don't allow editing of THE tree because it is too easy to vandalise.

its alright , i worked out how to do it 
you have to search your own surname , see yourself and get in that way; not sure if thats how one edits though?
CAN someone else edit you out of a line?

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?
