One of the most common methods used for genealogy information exchange is the GEDCOM, an acronym for GEnealogical Data COMmunication. In simple terms it is a method of formatting your family tree data into a text file which can be easily read and converted by any genealogy software program.
A GEDCOM is used between the database on my home PC and the database that drives the genealogy website. Whilst it is possible to update records on-line, using TNG, my preferred route is to main the database at home, using Legacy software, and then do periodic updates.
Last night, after a month of collecting and collating records relating to the Douglas family, and those connected to us, I added another tranche of data to the Archives.
Amongst the names added were around 200 Douglases, and a further 200 Douglasses. In all, there are currently 4835 Douglas family members recorded:
De Douglas (11)
Douglas Irvine (6)
Douglas Miller (4)
Douglas Mn (1)
Montagu Douglas Scott (3)
Scott Douglas (3)
