The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

It is with sadness I record the death of Jan Shaw, on 10th June.

Jan was for many years to President of the Clan Douglas Association of Australia, and before that the newsletter editor.

Her knowledge of Douglas matters, her support of Douglas heritage and her friendship will be missed by many.

Her funeral service will be at St Mary's Anglican Church, Brisbane on Monday 18 June at 10am.

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?
