"Handing down names from generation to generation makes keeping track hard - but sometimes the name pattern can be helpful in linking previously unrecognised family connections."

"Thanks anyway! I may have more questions. I had an uncle named William Douglas and a father George. Those names seem to have come down over the centuries!"

Lord James Douglas, the Black Douglas

I am working in Ancestry.com on my ancestors from Scotland and have reached an impasse. I have reached an ancestor named Sir William Douglas The Bold (1243 - 1298) who is said to have died in the Tower of London  or Sir William Douglas of Hermiston (1243 - 1300).

Dates and places of births, deaths and marriages all help to place families.

Maybe it is time to update the information in your profile?
