The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

Oxfam, the international confederation of charitable organizations focused on the alleviation of global poverty, runs bookshops in the UK to raise funds for the charity.

They have on sale, via ebay, a copy of A history of the house of Douglas from the earliest times down to the legislative union of England and Scotland by Sir Herbert Eustace Maxwell. This 1903 two volume publication has a 'buy now price of £49.99, but bidders may be able to secure a lower price.

I already have my copy, so you wont be bidding against me!

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?
