A collection of historical and genalogical records
I have come across a useful website listing Douglas coats of arms - 49 of them!
1) All of the arms are fully sourced to real historical documents. The main sources used are Burke's Armorial Général, authored by Sir Bernard Burke and published in 1884, as well as the Armorial General, authored by Johannes Baptista Rietstap in 1861.
2) It provides the blazon on the page, sometimes in Italian and French in addition to English!
3) Whereas other websites depict only the shield, this site depicts the crest and supporters (if present)
4) Whereas other websites only have one arms per surname, this lists multiple arms per surname.
Matching your family's coat of arms to one of these might be tricky, but if you know what to look for then you might find a good depiction of it.
