"I have done a Big-Y test, about a year ago or more. I am descended from the other son of William Douglas than Duncan. Somebody wrote that this would be helpful.
I am recovering from COVID at the moment and not firing on all 8…"
Which Douglas line are you researching? Dates and places help making connections.
I am descended from William Douglas, born about 1610. I have the full line of descent and a lot of the branches off the trunk of my tree. I am always willing to share.
One of my principle interests is in the origins of William. There are several descendants of William who have been coordinating their efforts to find where William was born and, of course, who his parents were.
Who is your earliest known Douglas ancestor?
William Douglas, born about 1609/1610

John Douglas 1 was born 2, 3 about 1858 in , , NY. John was counted in a census in 1860 in Louisville, St. Lawrence, NY. He was counted in a census 4 in 1870 in Louisville, St. Lawrence, NY. He was counted in a census 5 in 1880 in Louisville, St. Lawrence, NY. [Notes]
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?
