A collection of historical and genalogical records
I feel I must address this point once more ...
On this site , at the following link exists an error .
''the story of the creation of the Drysdale family'' That is not the truth , it is in fact an error .

Your family , just like mine got its name from the land . No Douglas created my family , some just borrowed the name and it saved their lives according to the substance of the story .
''the story of the creation of the Drysdale family'' is a mistruth and its content I must challenge , I have addressed to you on more than one occasion in regards to this fib , and removing it from this site Thru the Errors and omissions where it says We are looking for your help to improve the accuracy of The Douglas Archives. If you spot errors, or omissions, then please do let us know
I did and nothing has happened .
