I suspect that I may have duplicates within my data on this family and note different parents for the brothers.

 A search for the Douglas family of Clyne reveals this:

The following adds to the confusion:

Welcome to the Douglas Archives, Daniel.

Some members of the extended Douglas family arrived in Sutherland to look after the sheep following their introduction after the 'clearances'.

Others have been there since early times.

Yours aye,

William

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?
