The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

Charlie Douglas (abt 1933-2011), born Doug China, radio presenter.

Contributed by Ben Moses (Pictured):  In 1964 Charlie Douglas was still working under his real name, Doug China, and was in management or sales at WINZ Radio in Miami when I started to work there as a part time DJ. I was in the Army at the time, and had weekends off, and one day cut an audition tape for Doug and his Program Director (whose name I can't remember). They hired me and I spent the better part of that year and 1965 filling in for whoever was out sick. Eventually they gave me the Saturday night slot. I have never forgotten Doug, and always wondered what happened to him after I left for Vietnam in late '65. Glad he did well. As for me, I wound up writing a movie story about my DJ stint in Vietnam - you may have seen it. (Good Morning Vietnam - Ed)

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?
