The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

It is some time since I received an email telling me that I had a close DNA match - but perhaps I clicked the link asking for those emails to stop.

I was getting regular messages informing me that totally unknown persons with no seeming link were apparently 'a close match'.  Searches proved nothing.

From time to time I get emails from people wondering where that link might be to their 'close match'.

I never found those links and grew bored of trying to find them.

Perhaps if I had read this article, it may have unlocked the mystery.

Let me know how you get on.

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?
