Your web page is absolutely amazing. The breakthroughs provided by The Douglas Archives, Family Tree DNA tests, Douglas Clan Society, and Ancestry.COM will enable us to scientifically triangulate our common lineage. I started my quest over fifty years ago by visiting an old cemetery in the back country of Arkansas with my father. I knew only my great-grandfather’s name.
We have come a long way. Our cousins are linked around the world. We have a common purpose to understand where we came from and offer respect to forefathers. They paid a heavy price to provide the blessings we enjoy.
God Bless, I hope to meet you before the final sunset. God Bless!
Let's hope that we can crack this William Douglas, b1610 ancestry by all working together. It seems the main 'brick wall' that many of us have come up against.
I recently wrote to all Douglases living in Northamptonshire (home county of his wife), hoping for even a small lead - but got nothing!
If there is anything I can do to help, then please do get in touch.
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?
