The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

There is an interesting discussion on Wikipedia about branches of 'Clan Douglas'.

Now, many do not realise that Wikipedia has a number of people who challenge the content, and enter into discussions with others about the veracity of the that content.

There were some strange 'branches' of 'Clan Douglas' listed, and I raised the question as to why they were there.

If you want to follow the dicusion, you can do do on the Clan Douglas talk page.

You may wonder why I am writing Clan Dougas as 'Clan Douglas'. It is because, withing the Wikipedia community, as you can see on the talk page, there are some who question this status.

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?
