A collection of historical and genalogical records
My goals here are to find my family's roots... To know which part of Scotland they were from... To understand what brought them to Canada... Ultimately, to know who my family is.
So many unanswered questions.
My cousin and I long to know about the essence of blood that runs in our veins
Where should I start looking?
What should I do?
Douglas descendants, please guide me through this journey...
The first step is to identify the earliest Douglas in your ancestry. But as you probably know little about him or her, we may need to come forward a bit to find someone whose details have been recorded more fully. Share all the details of this person that you know, places, dates, events, etc, so that someone else can possibly see a connection.
If two brothers emigrated together, it is possible that the other brother's family have done the work, so search sideways as well as up and down.
I hope that gets you started/
