The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

Can you trace your lineage to any of the Earls of Angus, barons of Drumlanrig or the Earls of Morton?

Do you have strong links going back to around 1600?

The Douglas DNA project has accumulated some funds in the 'kitty' to help those who might otherwise be bale to afford testing of their DNA to help prove lines back to early Douglases.

You can read more about the group here:

I think it still would be a good thing to test your dna. We would all benefit.

1748 is as far as I can go  William.

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?
