That's my man!

Richard Douglass (born 27 Feb 1828, Downham, Lancashire, England) came with his wife, two daughters (Ellen and Elizabeth) and his mother's husband and family. In some sources, the surname is spelled "Douglas." John Parker Company (1852)

Thank you, Russell

By co-incidence, I too have been looking at Mormon migrants, both of Douglas and Douglass families, though the differences in spelling may be just differences in transcription.

The new pages are now on-line, but I would like to find out how they travelled to America, and more about their descendants.

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?
