Responding to enquiries, I have added some new sections to the community network, and also to the main site.
Here, you will now find a Discussion Forum for Douglases in Slavery and the Slave Trade
, which is being led by Marian Douglas-Ungaro. Virtually all Afrodescendant Douglases anywhere in the Americas, are Douglases because of enslavement - both in colonial Britain & in successor states such as the United States of America. We would like to know more about Douglas and other related family history.
Two new discussion groups are now available for those researching immigration into the Americas
. Some lines already have their own Forum, but these sections can be used for lesser known Douglases who made the long journey, whether from choice - or not!
Following numerous discussions at the Clan Gathering, held in Edinburgh in July 2009, I found there was a need to explain how septs fit into the clan system
, and related matters. Much of this information was already in the Douglas Archives, but it is now all together in one section, and is more comprehensive.
