DOWLING ONE NAME STUDY

2021 July

30 Jul 2021:- Total 37,753 including living.  Been mostly examining some World War 2 records for my uncle Thomas Dowling (1918-1990), he was part of the 'Forgotten' Fourteenth Army in Burma and had a bad time there.

25 Jul 2021:- Total 37,744 including living.  Sunday Single Back-up. Added a number of Dulins from Virginia amidst a busy day with other things.  My 93 year old mum in hospital at moment and visiting regularly.

24 Jul 2021:- Total 37,728 including living.  Testing my ORA (Online Repository Assistant) templates with the Find-a-Grave site.  Added significantly more names than without ORA.  Next to my family tree program ORA is the most important piece of genealogy software there is!  Yes there is work to get it working the way I want but when it fills in the source citations itself its magical!  Added a number of Dulins that, with some Doolins, are connected somewhere by DNA, hopefully the family reconstruction will gives some clues where we join-up.

22 Jul 2021:- Total 37,649 including living.  Added mostly sources to Missouri and Kentucky Doolins while testing the ORA (Online Repository Assistant).  Excellent Missouri merge of Thomas Doolin and Thomas Cooper Doolin... some puzzle pieces are slotting in here.

21 Jul 2021:- Total 37,634 including living.  Added mostly sources to Missouri and Kentucky Doolins while testing the ORA (Online Repository Assistant).  Busy with other things too.

20 Jul 2021:- Total 37,604 including living.  Added mostly sources to Missouri Doolins while testing the ORA (Online Repository Assistant).  It is saving a minute here and there to make a substantial time saving.  When all my main templates are done I could increase my productivity = more Dowlings!

18 Jul 2021:- Total 37,594 including living.  Added a few Kentucky Doolin's using new ORA (Online Repository Assistant) - it is taking a while for me to get the hang of it but it is clearly going to be a fantastic boon a learning curve but exciting.  Still mulling over the Clonreher Castle walk-through pages, if you have feedback I'd welcome it.  Contacted Laois Heritage Officer again today looking at what can be done for the castle.

17 Jul 2021:- Total 37,588including living.  More of a 'walk-around' idea for Clonreher Castle.  See what you think.  I have contacted the local authority about the state of repair and what contributions need to be made.

15 Jul 2021:- Total 37,588including living.  My 93 year old mother still very poorly so I look at genealogy for the odd few minutes only.  Added some pictures and pages around Clonreher Castle, apparently the home of a Dowling born around 1500, lots of work to do here over forthcoming years.

9 Jul 2021:- Total 37,578 including living.  My 93 year old mother very poorly so I look at genealogy for the odd few minutes only.  Tweaked the Lists of People/Timelines World War pages on website.

4 Jul 2021:- Total 37,578 including living.  Sunday Single Back-up. Hardly anything but a few source amendments.  Reviewed a correspondent's DNA on GEDmatch.  Very short of time at present.

1 Jul 2021:- Total 37,576 including living.  Monthly Double Back-up. Some new Ballynakill, Laois Dowling's but mostly tidying old census sources where Ancestry left nothing of any actual use years later.  Still caring for 93 year old mother so family history at a low at present.

30 Jun 2021:- Total 37,565 including living.  Only a few source rationalisations today.
