Profile Information

Which Douglas line are you researching? Dates and places help making connections.
My Grandmother, Johan Rosie Douglas married my Grandfather Ovila Leduc on 31 Dec 1918 at Balloan Farm, Cawdor, Nairn while Ovila was stationed in the Cawdor area as a Canadian Soldier. Johan was born on 18 January 1900 at Blackheath, Thurso, Caithness, Scotland. They settled in Canada after the war.

Johan's parents were George Alexander Douglas and Isabella MacKay. George was born a twin to Patrick John Douglas on 12 June 1867 at Lyth, Bower, Scotland.

Their parents were Donald Douglas and Elizabeth Rosie. Donald was born in 1833, Halkirk, Scotland.

Donald's parents were George Douglas and Janet Mill. George was born in 1806 in Caithness, Scotland
Who is your earliest known Douglas ancestor?
William Douglas married to Ann Elder, parents of Georger Douglas who married Janet Mill. I have no dates for William or Ann.

well thank You Harold. I can use any help I can get. I"m fairly new at this but I love a challenge being the 6th of 7 children as each one of the elders pass away would like to leave some information for the next generation to know where they actually came from. We were always raised with the Douglas Scotish pride. Also interested in a medical condition that was found out to be in the Douglas genes. It's called in simple terms (Iron overload) Were told that it never skips a generation and usually there is more then one in a family and gender doesn't matter. Just something people should be aware of since the side effects can cause a early death or health problems.

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?
