Mount Douglas - no points in the family quiz!

Have you ever played Scattegories, the quiz game where answers all begin with the same letter of the alphabet?

So if the 'scattegory' is 'D', all answers must begin with a 'D'.

It is a favouite family game of ours, played at family gatherings. Questions are devised to include authors, plants, body parts - and, this year, mountains.

My answer of Mount Douglas was rejected, and as I had not done my research, I was unable to defend the answer. Subsequent research has revealed no fewer than 7 mountains with that name! I will get my points next time!

I have been able to identify details of 4 of them, and need help with the remainder. Any geographers out there?

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?
