Decendants of James and Jane Douglas(s)

I am looking for further information on my Douglass (as spelled by the father, James) or Douglas (as spelled by the children). I found James and Jane (Mill) living around Makerston, Roxburgshire, Scotland in the mid-1700s. I have no dates on James and the dates for this Jane would make her too young to be the two older children's mother so perhaps she was a second wife or it is a different Jane Mill.They had 6 children Margaret (b. 1784 Lilliesleaf, Roxburgh, Scotland and died in 1866 in…See More

I am related through Annie and Adelaide Douglas to John Douglas of Caledonia, Queen's County, Nova Scotia. I am specifically interested in confirming his siblings and where they ended up and finding out further information on his parents' ancestors.

Welcome to our community, Cynthia.

The more you can tell us about your ancestors, the more likely someone wil find something in common and share with you.  See the 'Making connections' comment in the side panel.

Yours aye,

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?
