Douglases on Facebook.

The family has a strong presence of Facebook.  If you are a Facebook user, why not seek out others who are working on their family tree? A growing number of our pages feature the Facebook 'Like' button, allowing you to draw others attention to a particular page.

Douglas Archives Bookshop

Our bookshop contains a number of books that will be of interest to those researching their Douglas history. I have been busy building my own Amazon Wish List, and must now put some of the titles I have there into the bookshop! The Store »

Our Community Network grows

network screenshotA year ago, we launched the Douglas Archives Community Network. Many of us exchange emails with others researching similar family lines, but how do we know who else is doing the same?

The Community Network is a place where all those working on their Douglas family background can share ideas, raise questions and develop their family trees.  Read More »

Fundraising underway

The costs of administering the Douglas Archives have taken a sharp rise - or will do next month (July 2010).

One of our hosts has added a $200 charge to our costs.  We all like to think that the internet is free, but sadly that is not the case.

I am asking all Douglas Archives users to make a small donation to offset the costs - every £ or $ helps.

I am looking for one donation of $50, two of $25, two of $10, 5 of £10 and 10 of $5. If everyone who reads this newsletter just gave $1, we would be home and dry!

This page is a stub...?

Many pages in the Douglas Archives are 'stubs'. Rather than keep my notes hidden, I have decided to publish them in the hope that they are useful to fellow researcgers.  As the opportunity arises, these pages are later converted to full articles.
