The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

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:

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?
