The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

Rob Douglas, of Western Australia, has published a collection of notes and photographs about his grandfather, Henry, and grandmother, Mina. Rob uncovered a wealth of anecdotes and recollections of their lives.

If your family history merges with theirs at any point, then I am sure you will find this publication as fascinating as I do.

You can read the book, or buy a copy for your archives, here:

Finding Mortons. My Grandmother Laura J (Hall) Olson had Morton cousins, and I even met her cousin "Uncle" Clyde Morton. This was all in Michigan many years ago. Their Morton family came from Loudoun, Ayrshire, Scotland thru Alexander Vance Morton. My recent 23&Me Scottish dna shows up as Fife and Glasgow. Does that make any sense? I realize the Scottish connection may have moved, but this dna is supposed to be older than recent. Thanks so much! Laura J Olson II.

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?
