The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

Pat Douglas will be speaker at the regular monthly meeting of the Polk County Genealogical Society, in Bolivar, Missouri,  at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 3. Douglas will share an old family Bible that was returned to his family last December.

The Bible was returned by a gentleman from Georgia. The existence of this Bible, belonging to Sidney Albert and Melinda Graham Douglas, Pat’s great-great-grandparents, was unknown to the family. It contains a wealth of family history with newspaper clippings and obituaries. The Douglas family has begun researching the family hoping to discover even more about the Douglas heritage.

The evening will begin with a short business meeting at 7 p.m. at the society’s research facility on the southeast corner of the square. Anyone interested in hearing about the Bible is more than welcome to attend. The PCGS meetings are always open to the public. One does not have to be a member to attend, or to use the research facility.

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?
