The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

Searching for ancestors? Need help in Galloway?

Recently joined member, Bob Henry, is offering to help with searches in south west Scotland, particularly in Wigtownshire and Kirkcudbrightshire - even perhaps Dumfriesshire.

I have recently seen evidence of his work on ancestors of Sir William Douglas of Castle Douglas and am impressed with his achievements.

If you are looking for help in that area, bob is your man!

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?
