The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

The key to networking is that you should be able to find people with similar interests - and that they should be able to find you.

I was looking at all those who were researching Irish ancestors today, and was struck at how many did not include the word 'Irish' in their profiles. Yes, of course I also searched under 'Ireland', but we must make it easy for others to find us. Places of birth or death, dates, names of spouses, maiden names - all these can help someone with like interests find you.

I have just had a look at my Profile, and found it to be lacking in information! So I am about to improve it. Perhaps yours needs improving too?

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?
