The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

My ancestors immigrated to Canada from Ayrshire County, Scotland about 1850. My GGG grandfather was John Douglass, probably born in the 1770s and married to a Jennet McMichael (1782-1858). I know he died in 1839 (Colmonell), but I have been unable to find birth/marriage information that would permit me to carry my research beyond that point. My DNA haplotype (R1a1) suggests a connection to the Drumlanrig, Queensbury and Douglas of Morton line. Can you help? Thanks.

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?
