The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

One member of the extended family who is seldom out of the news is Lady Alice Douglas, the daughter of the 12th Marquis of Queensbury.

This photograph has just circulated the world as 'Photo of the week'.

Lady Alice Douglas swam in lake Llyn Mymbyr in Capel Curig, Wales, Tuesday. She has been swimming in lakes and rivers since her childhood. The practice is gaining popularity across the United Kingdom, says the Wall Street Journal. (Christopher Furlong/Getty Images)

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?
