A collection of historical and genalogical records
As stated previously, my maiden name was Morton and my great-grandfather (George Morton), and all the Mortons before him, were Scottish. Morton, being a sept or allied family of Douglas, has always given me a sense of belonging to Douglas. As I've been researching my family history, though, I've found ancestors from Auchterlonys to Youngs and a lot of things in between. There are at least 43 (possible) clans within the family history I've traced so far. It's a lot to digest. However, what struck me is the number of sept names relating to Douglas within my family history.

Some seem impossible to confirm, others are certain - I was born a Morton, after all - but overwhelmingly the Douglas influence on my family tree is greater than that of any other clan. Just thought I'd share as it fascinates me.
