The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

I am having a horrible time connecting my Douglass lineage. I am going to Scotland in September and would love some help. 

The last Douglass I am sure of is William W Douglass, b. abt 1755 in Lancaster Co., PA and d. Nov 1792, Madison Co., KY. He was married to Jane Moore, b. 1762, Lancaster Co.,  PA and d. 1830, Boone, MO. Any help with connecting me to ancestors in Scotland is appreciated, thank you Judy

Judy,

You might like to think about visiting National Records Office, in Edinburgh: https://www.nrscotland.gov.uk/research/family-history

Whilst visiting Douglas castles and other places of interest, there is no opportunity to develop research into our direct ancestors.

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?
