Pavia is certainly not far from Piacenza, so there very likely are connections.

I note more on the family here: 

I have yet to prove the link between San Folco Scotti, bishop of Piacenza and Pavia and the Douglas-Scottis.

I see they are from Pavia. There is a Douglas Scotti connection to Pavia.

William, I certainly assumed that these Scotti's are connected to the Douglas Scotti's. Admittedly, it is only an assumption. I agree, the B&W images of the women in the rice fields are very interesting.

I wonder if this Scotti enterprise is connected to the Douglas Scotti family.
There are some very good images in this slideshow.

Here is a fun one, a satisfying little slideshow.

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?
