The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

I received the following message with the request to share it:

I just wanted to share with as many of you as I could that T George Douglas passed away this morning (Tuesday, November 4) at his home in Altamonte Springs Fl.  His wife, Pat , called my husband George this afternoon to let him know the sad news. 

Some of you receiving this email may not have known T George well.  However he was one of the great ones within Clan Douglas.  I can still remember all the way back in about 1988 when George and I first went to the Scottish Games in Miami and met Pat who was manning the Clan Douglas tent there and was surprised to meet a second George Douglas.  Our friendship started that day and through the years stretched to many Scottish games, trips to Scotland and more memories than I could possibly share. 

T George and Pat were Florida regents many years and T George was the first clan secretary after our founder Gilbert Douglas retired from that position.  T George acted as tour guide for many of us who went to Scotland and also acted as such for clan sponsored trips.  He was very proud of his Scottish heritage and of Clan Douglas and one of his life endeavors was to better our cause.  He will be missed.

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?
