So my great great grandmother was Isabella Douglas Born Feb 1, 1847 in Whitburn. Her mother and father were Catharine Gardner and Alexander Douglas.

Linda, you cannot enter material directly into the Douglas Archives. You have to pass it to me first.

Welcome to the group, Linda.  We have already communicated through other channels, so it is good to have the additional details you provide here.

I'll have a root around the Archives and see what pops up.

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?
