Douglas Family Co Wicklow Ireland

I was delighted to find the Douglas website. Well done on setting it up.

 The earliest record I have found for our family  is a baptism record in 1779 in Wicklow  Roman Catholic Parish records for William Douglas son of Billy Douglas and wife.  

William married and had a son Thomas who was our great grandfather .

I have been trying to find out how and when the Douglas family came to Co Wicklow.

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?
