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.
