The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

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 and Australia. 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.

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?
