The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records


Douglas dna

A group for those who are using dna to trace their ancestors. The intention is NOT to replace the existing dna group, but to facilitate discussions amongst those who are not part of that group.

Members: 32
Latest Activity: Dec 17, 2019

The Yahoo group is for members of the Douglas DNA study project, and those interested in this project. They are trying to link our modern Douglas families with our "Old Douglas" lines by using yDNA tests.
The group currently has around 120 members, and has made some significant advances.

Further details about the use of dna in tracing ancestors can be found within the pages of the Douglas Archives...more>>>

I belong to a DNA circle on ancestry. Anyone else?

It might be useful if members posted other DNA information such as any projects they are members of, test kit numbers, YSearch numbers, Mitosearch numbers and Gedmatch numbers if they are available.

Understanding Y-Chromosome DNA Testing

Bill Hough, a member of the Douglas DNA project, has published a helpful guide to DNA testing.

Well, I hope you find it helpful!  It is still a mystery to me!

Good news, Ryan. We've been awaiting Marksberry info for a while now! Please let us know when you've got your results.

As a new member feeling my way around the Douglas dna data I have added my data to the Douglas family database.    My preliminary conclusion is that there seems to be quite a close match between my I2b1 profile and that for the 1st Earl's.  It would appear there might have been a closer relationship somewhere far back between the Douglas clan and the Oliver vassals.  I can say far back because I have indications that my Oliver ancestors resided in the uplands of Staffordshire from the time of the earliest parish records (early 16th century).    I will continue to explore the data with great interest.

There are exciting developments in the Yahoo DNA group which we should all be following:


Members (32)


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?
