A collection of historical and genalogical records
Several Douglas families had settled in what would become Germany and Russia before World War 1 and World War 2. Some of these families are Douglas of Arkland and the descendants of Count Robert Douglas of Sweden. I was wondering if anyone had heard of a Douglas fighting for the Central Powers, the Axis or for the Russia/Soviet Union during either of these wars. There are also Douglas families in Italy, and I am curious in their participation also.
I have been rooting around looking for evidence and have (so far) found none. However, the families did have sons who served in the 19th century, so it appears very likely they had sons who served in the 20th.
