The grandson of one of the first men to fly over Mount Everest has commemorated the historic feat 80 years on.

Charles Douglas-Hamilton flew to the world's highest peak as a passenger in a modern Jetstream 41 Turboprop.

In 1933, his grandfather Douglas and fellow pilot David Fowler MacIntyre had to contend with freezing temperatures and cracked oxygen pipes.

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?
