The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

I am a big reader, particularly fantasy novels. Am currently reading the "Women of the Otherworld" series by Kelley Armstrong. In book 5, Haunted the characters travelled to Glamis Castle in Scotland. Lady Janet Douglas was married to the 6th Lord Glamis you can read all about her in history books or in the Douglas Archives. I turned to page 229 (digital edition) and there was her story laid out in a fiction novel along with other stories involving the castle. How exciting to see my husbands ancestors in a modern day book of fiction.

Has any one else had a "star" sighting of their Douglas Ancesters in a book, movie ...anywhere?

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?
