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: Aug 31

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>>>

Greetings Douglases.... 

Several years ago I submitted a swab for the DNA which upon receipt of the results I had results transferred to FTDNA.  Subsequently I did a yDNA with FTDNA ... first 37, then 65 and now I am awaiting the data for the 111.  My kit# is B49476 yDNA haploid is R-M198.  Which seems to tell me that I have connections to Drumlanrig and Queensbury lines.  

Genealogically I am stuck only as far back as a Samuel Douglas 1824-1888 in Clarke Cty, MS

My DNA seems to indicate that I am connected to a Frederick Douglass in Florida, who is a son of an Alexander Douglas..

HELP!!  I am truly a neophyte!!

Gilbert F. Douglas, III

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.

How can I transfer my DNA to this site.

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?
