The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

As the compiler of the Douglas Archives, I receive numerous messages through the website, and I try to respond to them all.

Some enquiries are about people only distantly connected with the Douglas family, others are key players in our history.

I find it particularly frustrating when I receive messages where the originator's email address is incorrectly completed. Then I have no way of acknowledging the message, and no way of providing a response which may, or may not, add to the level of knowledge about a particular person or event.

Even more frustrating is when I play around with variations of the email address in an attempt to get it right, and the email goes unacknowledged. Did the response get through, or did it disappear into the ether?

So, if you have passed a message through the website, and got no response - then I am not ignoring you! Please try again.

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?
