"Glenn. Just to let you know that I have been busy of late but now starting to look for clues on John Douglas(s). To begin with, I have my doubts about him having been born outside the parish of Penninghame, which is in Wigtownshire…"

"Hi, Glenn, Interesting find as I have also wondered who he is. It may well be that he was related to Sir William Douglas and the information you have posted may now turn something up. I am of the opinion, in this instance, that the…"

John Douglass of Wigtonshire 1796-1832

I found John Douglass buried here at Monocacy Cemetery in Beallsville, Maryland, USA. His gravestone says, "In Memory of JOHN DOUGLASS of Castlestewart, Wigtonshire, Scotland, who died here Nov. 2, 1832. Aged 36 years." http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=39316464.I know that Castlestewart became Castle Douglas, so I'm almost certain he must somehow be related to Sir William Douglas, who…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?
