The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

The new exhibition opened last week at the Annan Museum which covers the life and times of Lady Florence Dixie.


Lady Florence is remembered most for her association with women's football.  As president of the British Ladies Football Club she helped give the game a high profile.  The exhibition also takes a fresh look at her life and legacy including her trips to Patagonia and in Southern Africa to report on the Boar War and her political activity in woman's suffrage and dress reform.  A solution to the 135 year old mystery of her attack at Windsor in 1883 is also presented as well as her mysterious last voyage to Cape Town in 1898.


There is still plenty of time to see it as the exhibition runs until June 23rd .

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?
