The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

As those who are members of the Douglas DNA project will be aware, this is a busy week with developments in sorting out the Douglas lines.

We have identified 48 R1b1b2 participants in the Douglas group which includes the men with paper lineages to the Earls of Morton.
There are a further 12 R1b1b2 who are indicated to be Niall of 9 hostages descendants. Some of these claim Angus descent, some Morton , and some do not know.
A third group is descended from a common ancestor, William Douglas, born 1610. They are R1b1b2a1a. There are about 20 in this group.

There has also been work on the 'Young Scandinavian' base haplotype the 'Old Scandinavian' branch, as well to the 'Russian Plain' branch.

If you are not a member of this group, then maybe now would be a good time to join.

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?
