40 Douglases listed among Glasgow's 1st World War Roll of Honour

200,000 men from Glasgow enlisted into the army or navy during the 1st World War.

Almost 18,000 never returned; they lost their lives on land, sea or in a few cases, in the air. Of these, 401 served in the Canadian forces.181 in the Australian and 44 in New Zealand's forces. Two even served in the Egyptian Camel Corps. Amongst them are almost 40 members of the Douglas family.

The Roll of Honour was first collated in 1922. It has now been made available online. www.lulu.com/spotlight/scottishmilitary

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?
