Morton - links to Douglas

My paternal line Morton has always regarded itself as of the Douglas clan. As a consequence through my years I have acquired my father's Douglas kilt, my grandfather's sporran, two Douglas kilts of my own and a pair of trews!! I don't want all that to be a pipe-dream.I have traced my paternal line back to c. 1700 and it is a work in progress.My question is - has the surname Morton been directly linked to a Douglas by any member researching their own family tree? I understand that retainers…See More

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?
