The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

John and Hannah had 12 children, lm a family historian of some 35 yr, l only do data. 

l saw original post from William and lm still wrking on going bckwrds as well as up dating

2 current day as a living tree.

With 12 children it is classed as a small family, as l have done my family tree lve also wrked

on the other Douglas/Douglass of Tasmania, with more success and getting them bck 2 Billy and Ann Douglas of England.

l prefer contact via skype as lm dyslexic, also can be contacted on fb.

If you are of this family, you are welcome 2 contact me.... and help with up-dates, as l have NOT

put all tree on-line as request from deceased and living family members, lve abided with that.

Thanks Sue.

It's reassuring to know someone of your calibre is quietly working in our corner.

At this juncture, I have all but given up..though it would be useful to be able to view your work on which is my place for tree research.

I hope you have no trouble reading this. I don't use skype or FB..Living descendants remain protected on do wish people wen't so 'precious', when it comes to sharing knowledge.

Hi Alison, l refuse 2 use ancestry cus way 2 much of it is incorrect and ppl dont verify there info.

As lm dyslexic and prefer 2 have face 2 face, l not precious abt the family tree, lm following request by family that are alive and deceased.... who DONT want it on ancestry, if some1 else puts it on it wont be me... l respect other ppls wishes, although when l die ... and only then it will be given 2 a group who are already aware its going 2 them. l will help ppl if l can, although it goes both way's.


I apologise if my meaning created offense Sue. I guess it becomes overly frustrating when trying to find any hints and someone (without good reason), refuses to share their data, which could quite well be integral.

Kindest Regards,

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?
