The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

Welcome to the Douglas Archives Community Network.

Here are some things you can do in the Douglas Community Network:

1. Spiff Up Your Profile Page. Tell us all about your family research, start a blog, add widgets—have fun customizing your page!  You can even have a different design. This page is key to helping others with similar interests find you.  Make sure you give details of your ancestors - where they were born, where the died, and when. If, for example, you are looking for help with Irish ancestors, make sure Irish and Ireland are mentioned.  There is a short video that shows you how.

2. Post Your Photos! Show off some of your ancestors, or photos from a reunion.

3. Post Your Videos! Share your funny videos with the community.

4. Join a Discussion Group and get interactive with other members.

5.  Write a blog! Publish details of current research you are doing. Whether you have met a brick wall, or just made a breakthrough, why not share this with others?

But first... make sure you read our Code of Conduct, which is located in our 'Help Desk'.

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?
