Profile Information

Which Douglas line are you researching?
All areas of Douglas history and genealogy are of interest to me.

I am keen to track back family lines that are considered 'brick walls', and hope to be able to do this through the networking opportunities that arise through media such as this.

Hello Willam Douglas.

Thank you for adding me as your friend. I have found out, that I am related to Queen Anne Stuart. We have the same ancestors. Frederik I of Denmark had two girls before marriage. His daughter Geske is female ancestor. I am related to Lady Diana too. Sophie Charlotte von Kielmansegg (born grevinde af Platen-Hallermund, Countess of Darlington`s mother Clara Elisebeth von Platen-Hallermund (born von Meysenbug) is my direct ancestor .Douglas and Hamilton are names in my tree. It is very interesting, I have managed to find a lot of my ancestors. But can you give me some more names of people , I can contact in this group? Thank you for reading my mail. Kindly Jonna

Thank you so much. Was Douglas and Morton the same family at one time???

I have 4 Edward Douglass in my line, one died (the most recent) in Tennessee. The other three are my 8th, 9th, and 10th great grandfathers. With 3rd(1644-1698), 2nd(1590-1657), and 1st(Bef 1590-Bef1644). All should be buried in Northhampton County, VA. But some sites (Geni.com) says they were born in Norwich, England; while ancestry.com says Scotland.

Thank you for responding so quickly. Unfortunately I will not be able to attend the Douglas Clan Gathering although it would be the perfect special time to experience Scotland for the first time.

Although I do not know the dates, you very likely may be referring to my grandfather, Howard Jasper Douglass, who was born in Patriot, Indiana, and I think died in an elderly care facility in Brandon, Florida, near where my Aunt Janet used to live. My grandmother's name was Clara Ina Wood Douglass.

My father's name was Howard Wood Douglass, his sister was Janet Douglass Miles.  If I am correct, my father was born in Madison, Indiana, or at least lived there as a child.

While my Aunt Janet took it upon herself to be the family historian, much of what she may have known about our ancestry was not passed along to her survivors. She may even have been in contact with you at some point but I do not know any details about her research.

Please let me know if you have anymore information. I am currently attempting to acquire more information from my cousins in the meantime.


Best regards,

Cyndia

Hello William Douglas.

I am not sure, but Queen Consort Anne of England (born of Denmark) could be the link to my dna connection . Another possiblity is Margarethe (Martha) von Scheinitz (born von Kauffungen)Direkte ane (17 generationer) - My direct ancestor (17 generations).

1420, Schönberg, Sachsen.  At fabpedigree.com she is the link to many royal families.
