I am trying to find the family of my Great Grandfather Dugald Drysdale. He was born about 1854 in Scotland, possibly Glasgow or on the Isle of Islay. He is thought to have a brother (Neil) and maybe a sister (Catherine), but don't know for sure. He ended up in Australia but had spent some time in India either as a soldier or a sailor. I have conflicting stories and they are making the task hard. Parents names are thought to be James and Ann. I am not letting oput to much information as I don't want to steer any one in the wrong direction. May be you can get me pointed in the right direction. Thanks


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?
