DOWLING ONE NAME STUDY

2020 December

31 December 2020:- Total 34, 799 including living. All work on Dowlings of the South today with 45 sources added.  While many of these are Florida Dowling's they are a 'future proofing' for further work on all southern lines.

30 December 2020:- Total 34, 736 including living. 18 sources added, including some new Massachusetts names as a result of a One-Name Guild member sending me some Dowling grave photos.

29 December 2020:- Total 34, 722 including living. More on a Georgia USA family connected to the 'Dowlings of the South'.  Lots added today to make more sense of the Dowlings of the South which is a marvellous example of genealogy.

28 December 2020:- Total 34, 690 including living. More on a Georgia USA family connected to the 'Dowlings of the South'.  Lots added today to make more sense of the Dowlings of the South which is a marvellous example of genealogy.

27 December 2020:- Total 34, 679 including living. More on a Georgia USA family connected to the 'Dowlings of the South'.  Lots added but have discovered one photo applied to two different individuals in Find-a-Grave... hmm, added to both and will note there is an error in one or both of them.  Falling behind on correspondence but will always answer.

23 December 2020:- Total 34, 629 including living. More on a Georgia USA family connected to the 'Dowlings of the South'.  3 sources added - looking better all the time

22 December 2020:- Total 34, 614 including living. More on a Georgia USA family connected to the 'Dowlings of the South'.  Although very slow I am rather pleased with resolving a mistaken identity between two Georgia Dowlings that now causes lines to make sense, I cannot seem to correct the Find-a-Grave entry as I didn't create it.  29 sources added - looking better all the time

19 December 2020:- Total 34, 585 including living. More on a Georgia USA family connected to the 'Dowlings of the South'.  Lots of double checking in tiny amounts of time available at this time.

18 December 2020:- Total 34, 528 including living. More on a Georgia USA family now connected to the 'Dowlings of the South'.  There are many anomalies with families connected to the 'Dowlings of the South' that I wonder if people are not making uncorroborated connections, so I will spend some time on this line.

17 December 2020:- Total 34, 517 including living. More on a Georgia USA family now connected to the 'Dowlings of the South'.  Some corrections... so many corrections are needed for Ancestry sources that automatically populate the source fields; I didn't notice them at the time years ago but, at best, some are of no value and, at worst, some are just plain wrong.  My new sources for the last few years are put in by hand as it were, as I now don't trust the automation even though I no longer use Ancestry!

16 December 2020:- Total 34, 493 including living. Some Carlow Dowling's with Laois connections from Carlow census.  As a result of correspondence I started on a Georgia USA family with two Dowling cousins who marries, so a great contact from a Dowling in Florida.  Lots to do.

13 December 2020:- Total 34, 458 including living. Today I finished adding the Laois/Offaly 1901/1911 Censuses into the database.  This means that each entry in Irish counties Laois and Offaly for a Dowling or variant in both the 1901 and 1911 census have been added;  AND the vast majority joined where possible (i.e. where a person is in the 1911 census and is also found in the 1901 census the two entries are attributed to one individual.  Further, where these people can be connected to their birth, marriage or death that has also been done.  This has taken years so I am very pleased to have finished these counties.

12 December 2020:- Total 34, 442 including living. Donaghmore Births (1864-1919), Marriages (1845-1944) & Deaths (1864/78-1969).  So, All of the available Donaghmore BMD's are in the system.  The Laois 1901/1911 Censuses are also nearly finished at: 99.6% incorporated in database.  Maybe done tomorrow but very busy with other things at present.

10 December 2020:- Total 34, 431 including living. Donaghmore Births, Marriages & Deaths (1864-1886).  Laois 1901/1911 Censuses: 98.3% incorporated in database.  Laois to Australia family added... more work to be done here.

8 December 2020:- Total 34, 403 including living. Donaghmore Births, Marriages & Deaths (1864-1885).  Laois 1901/1911 Censuses: 98% incorporated in database.  Nice little merge of two identical entries.

6 December 2020:- Total 34, 382 including living. Donaghmore Births, Marriages & Deaths (1864-1884).  Laois 1901/1911 Censuses: 97.6% incorporated in database.  Some of these entries led off to Kerry & Carlow entries tracking boarding school pupils.

2 December 2020:- Total 34, 359 including living. Donaghmore Births, Marriages & Deaths (1864-1882).  Laois 1901/1911 Censuses: 96% incorporated in database.  I am looking after my 92 year old mother at present so time alone to do some genealogy is sparse.

1 December 2020:- Total 34, 354 including living. Donaghmore Births, Marriages & Deaths (1864-1881).  Laois 1901/1911 Censuses: 96% incorporated in database.
