A collection of historical and genalogical records

I recollect that someone contacted me about a sail maker - but I cannot trace the message.  The following was found in the Edinburgh Gazette, 7 December 1917.

THE Business of ROBERT DOUGLAS & SON,
Sail Makers, Plantation Sail Works, Eaglesham
Street, Glasgow, was transferred by the Subscribers,
the Testamentary Trustees of the late Lieut.-Col.
Robert Jeftray Douglas, C.M.G., who was the sole
Partner thereof, to his brother, the Subscriber
William Douglas, junior, as at thirty-first October
nineteen hundred and seventeen, when the Trustees'
interest in the Business ceased.
The Subscriber William Douglas, junior, will continue the Business under the present Firm name, in
the same premises, on his own account, and will
collect the assets and discharge the liabilities of the
Business as at and from thirty-first October last.

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?
