Revised 6 December 2010

In these pages you will find the old Tin Type Shop, the Pegelow Post and Messages for May combined. May's site was primarily a history of the Eastwood family, which was in the Douglas family line. If you will go to the Douglas section and click on the surname list, you will be able to locate her information there.  The surname index should be fully accessible on the Douglas(s) side of the line, with the exception of the three special photo groupings at the bottom. Those will begin to appear in the near future. The Douglas Surname lists are converting to PDF format. You will need Adobe Reader to access these files. It may not work on all browsers. . The older file formas will remain in blue. The old individuals files will remain on this site, but will not be updated.

Effective 7/30/2012, all new listings for the Douglas/Douglass/Douglis/Dougles/Dougless and other variations will all appear under one spelling, which is Douglas. The purpose of this changing of the name to one spelling was to allow me to match up individuals who may be showing up on the census under alternate spellings. You can figure it out from there yourself as to which spelling is correct. Please note: my research for the current project is on the surname Douglas only. I am not going into their allied lines at this time. I have completed the 1850 Douglas census and am about 1/2 way through the 1860 census. What I am doing is pulling all people by this surname out of the census and entering it into my database to follow the North American migration patterns through a combination of the census and the research of others who are researching this specific surname. All other research is temporarily on hold.

PLEASE NOTE:  DUE TO THE EXTENSIVE AMOUNT OF TIME REQUIRED TO PUT THESE LISTS TOGETHER FROM CENSUS REPORTS AND THE HIGH COST OF PULLING RECORDS TO DOCUMENT ITEMS, IT HAS BECOME NECESSARY FOR ME TO IMPOSE A FEE FOR PROVIDING ADDITIONAL INFORMATION TO OTHER RESEARCHERS.  THE BASE FEE FOR NAME LOOK UP FROM MY DATABASE IS NOW $2.50 PER NAME.  THE COST OF PHOTOCOPYING FROM THE WEBSITE OR DOCUMENTS FROM MY FILES IS 50 CENTS PER PAGE.  IF IT IS NECESSARY TO DO ADDITIONAL OUTSIDE RESEARCH ON YOUR BEHALF, I HAVE NUMEROUS LIBRARIES IN LOS ANGELES TO ACCESS INFORMATION.  THE FEE FOR OUTSIDE RESEARCH IS $25.00 PER HOUR.  FEES FOR DOCUMENT COPYING, I.E. MILITARY FILES, BIRTH OR DEATH CERTIFICATES, ETC. ARE BASED UPON THE ACTUAL CHARGES OF THAT STATE.  PLEASE BE AWARE:  BIRTH, DEATH AND MARRIAGE CERTIFICATES MAY NOT EXIST IF THE STATE IN QUESTION DID NOT REQUIRE THEM PRIOR TO A CERTAIN TIME PERIOD.

I have begun verifying the ahnentafel charts against the census records and have completed reviewing Blagg through the census years 1850, 1860 and 1870 and have reviewed Eastwood through 1850. Dillard is now complete through 1850. If this is your line, you will want to look at both the Ahnentafel and the index lists. The Ahnentafel for Douglas now includes an updated PDF version. This will be the format for all future updates. Douglas and Douglass have both been reviewed through 1850 and are now included in the indexing.(12/6/2010). The updated family sheets will take longer to produce. I will be going through each of the surnames and running the entire surname in the census to improve our validity. If you have family groups that connect, please let me know so they can be included. I have many family names in my database that are not yet connected to their proper place within the Ahnentafels.  The Ahnentafels are being upgraded at the end of each Census check so you may want to keep checking back to see if your family has been connected.  If you can connect your line to one of these, please send me an e-mail.  I need names, dates, locations and documentation and photos if you have them and are willing to share.  Please keep photo files small and use jpeg format. Thanks.

You will need Adobe Acrobat to read all PDF files. You can obtain a free downloadable copy from several web providers.

The Pegelow section has not been updated in some time due to the fact that my husband is supposed to take over this section himself. He still is trying to figure out how to create the web pages. Don't look for this any time soon, though as he is a slow typist.
We will be adding history books to the on-line library at some time in the future.  You will notice that some of the books that are of a religious nature also contain historical information.  You may want to check the church membership books.  If you have a book to share, let me know and I'll give you the format to do the transcriptions.  You can do them in Word as a text document and I can transfer them into Front Page to get the html coding behind the document and add the links.  If you transcribe a book please add the statement "transcribed by (your name) to the document and add the date.  If you send photos or have an article that is of original text that you think we should share, please indicate (submitted by (your name))  Please note that I do not publish information about living individuals, which is why I ask for you to include dates with names.  This is to protect the living from identity theft.  If you send an ahnentafel chart, I will remove the generations that include you and your parents if you forget to do so and I see that these are living people.  Once I finish with the census reviews, I will be publishing an updated individuals list which will include all names with our surnames in my database.  That is a long-term project, so don't look for it any time soon.  If you have someone you don't see in the Ahnentafel, ask me.  I may have them in my database because of the census reviews
Something new that I recently discovered.  If you are stuck before the 1850 census, try looking at the microfilm for the Pension applications for the War of 1812.  I am reviewing them at the Mormon Temple history center and discovered that they often contain the wife's maiden name and date of marriage and death dates for the soldier's and wives.  Also, it often shows where these people were in 1850, 1855 and 1878, which will lock them to the 1850 census for you.  Chances are highly likely that you may find your missing Revolutionary War soldier connection doing this index as many of the same soldiers fought in both wars (assuming age is within the time frame.)
The Individuals section is gradually being enlarged. You will need Adobe Reader to access the new section. This reader is available for free on line. What you will see is the names in my database, alphabetical by surname as a PDF file. I have included the name, date and location of birth, date and location of death and the name of the spouse, if known. You are welcome to use information from these pages. You should be able to print them out. I recommend you use legal size paper, otherwise the width will go onto a second page in many instances. Some of these are more than one page long so keep scrolling down. Remember that I charge for researching on your behalf because it takes away from my time to work on the project. I am slowly coordinating all available information on the primary surnames and consolidating and connecting the lines as I go. You will discover that some of this research is your own. This is a consolidation report, not a work of new origin. My fees are posted above. These fees will also help to pay for the cost of keeping this website up and running. I also have store sites, which can be reached through the main page of this site, which profits go to the same purpose except as noted. Thank you all for understanding and for your continued support. If you see corrections that need to be made, be sure you cite your source, otherwise the changes will not be made.
