The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

A little while ago, I was sent some photographs of a signet ring. Whilst the email came from France, the ring apparently became the property of this particular family in California.

As can be seen, it bears the Douglas crest of the wild boar and the oak tree, and the motto, Lock Sicker. The Douglas heart is clear, but what is depicted in the other quarters?

Does anyone know whose crest this might be? And how it got to California?

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?
