The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

I have received a family tree emblazoned with several heraldic shields of the various branches and families.

One is untitled.

The centre is the arms of the Douglases of Lochleven and the Earls of Morton. But the checkered (checky) border is unknown to me.

Can anyone help?

Should that be chequy?

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?
