This would be in a very South town in Mississippi, United States. Probably a town called Sontag. That is where most Douglases settled, although my grandfather Sam lived in Bassfield. I see you have the Douglas sense of humor. We are known for that here. Where are you from?

Where would this photo have been taken?

Now I know where I get my dress sense 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?
