Hand coloured studio portrait of 848 Lance Corporal, Alan Edward Douglas, 20th Battalion, of Erskineville, NSW. He enlisted on 28 March 1915 and embarked from Sydney, NSW, on 25 June 1915 aboard HMAT Berrima (A35). He was killed in action on the Western Front on 30 July 1916, aged 22. This portrait is the centre panel in a framed group of the three Douglas brothers; all of whom tragically lost their lives in the war.

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?
