    My sons and I will be coming for the Douglass Clan reunion in Livingston June 30-6th of July.
    We will stop by to see what we can find on our family, the Douglasses of Haddington.

      Hello Ann

      We’d be pleased to see you and your family: remember to check our opening times in advance (http://www.johngraycentre.org/visit/) and have as much background information (known names, dates, places) to hand as possible when you come to make the most effective use of your time!

    Thank you
