Heather, for the record, you have replied to me separately saying that you do not think that there is a connection with the Douglas Motorcycle company.

You say: William and Katherine emigrated to Canada after WW1 and returned to Edinburgh in 1925. is this William b1919 and his mother?

Is William Wilson Douglas the son of the founder of the famous motorcycle firm? He had taken part in the 1911 Isle of Man T.T. Races.

During the First World War Douglas Motorcycles of Hanham Road, Kingswood, won an army contract and produced 25,000 machines for the use of dispatch riders in the worst terrain of the Front.

After the Great War he was in the U.S.A and Canada promoting the firm.

I think there was a daughter, Rosina? Or am I getting my generations mixed up?

Yours aye,

Welcome to our community network, Heather.

If you can put dates ad places against 'your' William and James, then this would help others contribute to your research - or maybe you help them with theirs!

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?
