O'Dowling's Country

Fearann ua n-Dunlaing shown in north Laois, Ireland. Similar to most old maps, 'North' is to the right.

The original territory of the family was at Fearann ua n-Dunlaing (O'Dowling's Country). This area covered along Western bank of the River Barrow. The O'Dowling's were one of the Seven Septs of Leix, significant families in the County once called Queen's County.

Timeline Events


Timeline events are significant historical occurences that can be listed with our ancestor's details to reflect circumstances that they lived with and which may have affected their lives.


2020 will be a genealogically historic year. Many of us will lose members of our families during the current epidemic. There will be so many deaths that this year will feature for family historians as an important 'timeline' event!

 

31 Dec 2019 to 202? World Coronavirus Covid 19 pandemic kills over 5,072,444 people worldwide and exposes great strengths in healthcare personnel and political inadequacies amounting in many countries to criminal neglect and/or gross incompetence.

This time will be genealogically historic for the climate crisis. It seems odd that that some people on the planet believe passionately in the seriousness of the crisis and others consider it a hoax, despite huge scientific evidence of global warning. Here are 3 examples of potential 'Timeline' tags to apply to people living through the next few decades.

Example 1?

2022 to 2050 World The earth narrowly avoids potential extinction event by reducing pressure on natural resources and the use of damaging fossil fuels and damaging chemicals.  Humans globally and individually had a choice between protecting their environment (and, if wrong, to have wasted money) OR to ignore warnings and carry on exploiting the earths natural resources (and, if wrong, destroying its own habitat).  The majority chose to save the planet (even for those who disagreed with them).

Example 2?

2022 to 2050 World The earth plunges into a cataclysmic destruction of its environment self-inflicted by humans.  Humans globally and individually had a choice between protecting their environment (and, if wrong, to have wasted money) OR to ignore warnings and carry on exploiting the earths natural resources (and, if wrong, destroying its own habitat).  The majority chose to carry on with fossil fuels, removing trees, producing environmentally destructive chemicals and destroy their own habitat. (even for those who disagreed with them).

Example3?

2022 to 2050 World (site terminated for future generations as pointless to do genealogical research on post-apocalypse earth)
