"Welcome to the group, Roy.
The best way to make progress with your research is to find someone who is researching a similar family line.
And the best way to get them to help you is to share as much as you have on the earliest known…"
Which Douglas line are you researching? Dates and places help making connections.
Im looking into the Sir James Douglas line of course. But honestly any generally knowledge about how to track my line down more specifically would be welcome. As i know its not as simple as just having his last name.
Who is your earliest known Douglas ancestor?
Possibly Angus Darcus Douglas
Tags/keywords - used to help people find you

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?
