The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

I have been trying to establish the father of my Lancaster, Pennsylvania ancestor, and have had no luck. Can anyone confirm the parentage of:
Archibald Douglas (1695-1756)
Married Jean or Jane (?)
Born in Edinburgh, Scotland
Died 11/26/1756 in Lancaster, PA
Interred at St. John’s Episcopal Church, Gap, PA

The LDS' Family History Library ( in Salt Lake City state his father was Archibald Douglas-Hamilton (1673-1756).

I also have another Archibald Douglas as his father (1665-1728), who married Elizabeth Louise Daly and came to Kent, Delaware, USA in 1726.

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?
