The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

Lady Margaret Douglas, a progenitor of princes

I thought your members might be interested in my article of Henry VIII's niece Lady Margaret Douglas, the mother in law of Mary, Queen of Scots. There is free access for a few more days at least at History Today. She is a major figure in my forthcoming book Tudor: The Family Story and I have done a lot of new research on her. best wishes, Leanda de Lisle  Enjoy!

Thank you, Leanda.

Please let us know when the book is published.


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?
