"The records were destroyed during the Uprising, but more recent transcriptions of church, valuation, etc records are revealing information, so all is not lost. I have this note: Robert and Roberta Douglas: Robert's father was Robert (wife…"

SAMUEL DOUGLAS (born abt. 1779) OF ARDINARIVE/ NEWTOWNLIMAVADY)

Does anyone have any information about this mysterious chap? We know that he married a Jane Gay (daughter of Mathew Gay) who was also from the same town/area. He is my great (x6) grandfather. His children immigrated to New Zealand. Many of his descendants (some of which may be on here) have struggled to find any information on this man. We have been told that a fire destroyed records from this time, which could explain the dearth of information on him. We also know that there were many other…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?
