A collection of historical and genalogical records
I am trying to locate two publications:
• "Scottish families and their symbols in the Netherlands or the coats of arms of Dutch families of Scottish Descent" (c1998), and
• Portretten van de Nederlandse Burgers van Schotse af komst (1996) (Portraits of the Dutch citizens of Scottish descent)
Both by Percy Douglas
Can anyone help?
