Hello again Cara 

Further to my previous reply,  I have been looking at my DNA matches for Douglas relatives and I saw that one of them listed a Susanna as the daughter of George Douglas b 1701, making her the sister, not daughter of George 1724. However I have not seen primary source evidence so I am wary of taking it as fact but it may be worth looking into it. 

Regards, Douglas

Hi Cara,

My connection to the Douglas family comes from William Bliss marrying Elizabeth Marshall, daughter of Elizabeth Douglas b 1755.

Elizabeth Douglas was the daughter of George Douglas b 1724. I have not yet found a Susanna but I have not done a great deal of research into the Douglas line as I have been concentrating on the Bliss name.

I took a DNA test through Ancestry. This has been useful in finding matches, however the Y chromosome haplogroup would be the Bliss line as my Douglas link is through a female ancestor.

If we are both descended from the same George Douglas 1724, then we are 6th cousins once removed.

Best Wishes, Douglas Bliss

Welcome to our community, Cara.

You will find a several discussions about Northamptonshire here. To find them, enter Northamptonshire in the search bx, top right.

Many of us are trying to find a connection with William Douglas, born 1610.

Yours aye,

William

 
 
 

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?
