The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

Interesting research in the Douglas DNA group has revealed futher spelling variations of our name.

I already record that there are family members whp spell their names:
Dowglass,
Dowglas,
Dowglasse,
Dowglace,
Dovglas,
Dulglas,
Douglace,
Douglas,
Douglass,
Douglase,
Dougles,
Douglles,
Douglis,
Dogles,
Duglas,
Duglass,
Drysdale

and have noted the gaelic spelling: Dhubhghlas

However, it seems we now need to add the following:

Douglafs and Duglafs

Is anyone tracing this line?

I have been advised that the 'f' in 'Douglaf's and 'Duglafs' is more correctly a 'long s', but nonetheless, anyone doing computer searches would be advised to search with a 'f' as well as with a 's'.

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?
