New here, any info on Drysdale's would be awesome. Family Crest, info on Douglas tartans. I'd like to get an Ancient Douglas kilt, but I'm new to this. I've traced 9 generations back from my son to James Drysdale born in Glasgow in 1789. Thanks for everything!

Welcome Greg 

 
 
 

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?
