Hi Russell, thanks for the message. That’s great! Are you able to provide me with the email address please? If you have any information on that line of the Douglas family please let me know. Many thanks!

Thank you Russel!

have to find out how it works all. But I signed in because I was confronted with a picture of the Drysdales and my aunt Sonja Sauerbier (who is the unknown person).searching more I got more and more flabbergasted because i saw the death certificate of my grandmother Eleonore Drysdale married to J.F. Sauerbier. and another registration card on which my grandparents and their children of whom my mother is Frieda!  
Then all the names from the Drysdale's mentioned: Tom, Suze,Ben , Boy, Dee Edith,

uncle and aunt and cousins to my mother, by me all addressed as uncles and aunties.

a bit overwhelming this . So bisar more… there is a scan from a newspaper stating an orphanage in Batavia during the war in which is mentioned a Miss Drysdale? That was my great aunt “ tante Ellie” Manuela Drysdale. Sister of Eleonore and Tom Drysdale.

long story , very excited to learn where you got all these documents and how you are connected .

In all my excitement totally forgot to introduce myself: My name is Wilma van der Garde, married to Hans Hamilton born and raised in The Hague In The Netherlands now living in Veenendaal in the middle of the Netherlands. 

so far for now, think many more questions will pop up🙂

kind regards

Wilma Hamilton

Nice job Russell, I was looking for a way to accomplish it and didn't see it!


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?
