  Thankyou William for accepting me. My sister did my family tree,and found out both sides of my family go back to Robert the Bruce. We were shocked...!  I look forward to seeing posts from others connected to our family.    We went to Scotland in 2009  for 2 weeks and thought we must be in heaven,  so much to see and find.  We found the town of Douglas and saw the castle, what was left of it any way.  We also saw many more, but the most amazing I found was the Red Douglas Castle, Tantallon.   We had a wonderful time.  TTYS  Rhonda

Thank you for reminding me William I have been meaning to post that whole section .

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?
