Welcome to our community, Penelope.

You might consider joining the South Africa group where you can meet others researching their ancestors in southern Africa.  Look for this page, amongst others: 
https://douglashistory.ning.com/group/southern-african-connection/forum/topics/descendants-of-norman-douglas

If there is anything that you can add to my notes on that part of the world, you would be very welcome:

It would be good to tie up some loose ends in this family.

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?
