The Douglas Archives

A collection of historical and genalogical records

How many women are listed in the Douglas Archives? At the last count there were nearly 70,000 females in the database (80,000 men), but that is not what I meant.

How many women merit a Biography? And how many have got one? Not enough is the best answer that I can give.

With this in mind, I went in search of more Douglas ladies, and managed to add nine in the last month - and only eight men!

One of those women won Wimbledon 7 times! How could I have not known that before?

Suggestions of women who merit inclusion in the Douglas Archives would be very welcome.

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?
