Douglas / OLIPHANT/ Smith / Sinclair lines finally sorted

Douglas / OLIPHANT/ Smith / Sinclair lines
looks like I am finally getting the Oliphant mystery sorted
I have Douglas on both maternal (stuart / Douglas side) and on Paternal is the Oliphant / Douglas lines
Mysteriously the majority of our YDNA for Stoddard is OLIPHANT (no Stoddard) 

and looks like I will descend twice from (maybe 3 times) from

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?
