The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

I need your help... I have not found concrete proof of the ancestry of my Mary Douglas.  Mary Douglas was my 7th GGmother.  She married John Kimbrough and they came to America with 3 children.  Unproven is her ancestry.  Robert Douglas is listed as her father, however there are Many many Robert Douglas's.  Do these names ring a bell with anyone and can anyone help... please.. my trip to Scotland is in 4 months and I would love to have some sort of a lead...

Thank you in advance...

I do have so much of this here in America, its Scotland where I am just "guessing".  I hope when I get to Scotland I am able to do some research... thank you for the reply.

Doesnt ring a bell but found a couple of items.  You may have already seen these but if not maybe there will be some useful information or clue here ?  There are also some sources given.

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?
