The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

November 15, 2015 Thanks to James Douglas in pointing out the year of birth for Edward Douglas as 1590. I must be weak in arithmetic. I just spent three hours on a blog and wrote too much. It all disappeared on me. I shall do it over this evening when I am in a better mood. Thanks for bearing with me.

There is no hurry Mr Hunt.  I am enjoying your posts on Edward Douglas.  I created and manage his profile on WikiTree.  Your information has rounded out and provided interest to his bio.  And the source materials you pointed out are valuable to other researchers of this Douglas line.   Thank you Sir.

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?
