The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

Google Books help family history researchers

Google are continually adding to their library of out of print books that they are making available on-line. Whilst some are, frustratingly, not available in the UK because of copyright issues, many are.

I have recently been referred to Debrett's The baronetage of England for a particular reference, but by entering 'Douglas' in the search box, I was able to call up many interesting references.

Early Debrett's are notorious for the mistakes, and indeed many entries are still not fully accurate, so, as always, check your facts!

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?
