Which Douglas line are you researching? Dates and places help making connections.
I am a researcher after reading A J Rogers books in the 70s about the Black Nobility in Europe in his book "Sex & Race" and Nature knows no colour line 1911.
To my surprise I found the name Sholto Douglas 767AD In Scotland
The Italian source Synopsis de la genealogia de la antiquissima y nobilissima familia Brigantina o Douglas
by Pineda, Pedro 1754. This is another interesting book that states that the name Brigantes/Douglas are connected.

I suggest that you have a look at some of the Italian pages to follow up your research: http://www.douglashistory.co.uk/history/families/italy.html Yours aye,
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?
