The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

I have just been introduced to the Georgia Douglases website.

Georgia Douglases was originally conceptualized as a central repository for genealogical research data related to the Douglas pioneers of early Montgomery and Emanuel Counties, Georgia. As much erroneous material concerning this line has been published over the years, it was hoped that this resource might serve as a point of clarification and documentation of accurate source material.

As the site grew, it became evident that other Douglas family researchers were experiencing the same challenges that were met by the developers of this project. Consequently, it was determined that the mission of the site would be expanded to include all early Douglas settlers born prior to 1840 (the period when records are most scarce). This registery is being compiled under the DOUGLASOPEDIA, an ever-growing resource for researchers of the early Douglas settlers of Georgia.

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?
