DOWLING ONE NAME STUDY

2021 September

30 September 2021:- Total 38,562 including living.  Some time consuming ORA template changes as I had my logic well-muddled.  A few connected non-Dowlings in Laois added.

29 September 2021:- Total 38,559 including living.  Looks like only two people added but, in fact, a good merge in east Laois bordering Kildare reduced numbers somewhat.  This is excellent as it increases accuracy and reduces future confusion.

28 September 2021:- Total 38,557 including living.  Looking into correspondence on a Missouri connection to Hampshire.  Had the records for some time but they needed the sources re-tracing.  Some Online Repository Assistant template work.  Tonight it's the last of my five on-line Irish Heritage courses on Zoom, it has been very interesting and it has helped me focus on aspects of Clonreher Castle.  It's all go.

27 September 2021:- Total 38,556 including living.  Answering correspondence and doing some image work on my own family.

26 September 2021:- Total 38,551 including living.  Sunday Single Back-up. Lot of time looking for needles in haystacks today.  There is another connection and merge here in Stradbally but I just cannot find the source that proves it.

24 September 2021:- Total 38,550 including living.  Significant merges in Stradbally following some correspondence from a McEvoy descendant of a Dowling.  Good work today.

22 September 2021:- Total 38,539 including living.  A few sources for existing people to whom I am directly related.  Some ORA template work on the Irish Deaths database.  Mostly administering my mother's Will with lots of time waiting on the telephone.

21 September 2021:- Total 38,539 including living.  Some people added with more sources and pretty soon afterwards they were merged and joined with existing people so a good day's work reducing people who appeared twice.

20 September 2021:- Total 38,539 including living.  My mother's funeral today.  So, just a quick correspondence reply and little more.

19 September 2021:- Total 38,535 including living.  Sunday Single Back-up. A few people added but mostly sources and maiden names for Dowlings in Berkshire. 

18 September 2021:- Total 38,531 including living.  Mostly sources for existing people.  Very busy with mother's funeral coming up on Monday.

13 September 2021:- Total 38,526 including living.  A few corrections and adjustments, I always like corrections.

12 September 2021:- Total 38,526 including living.  Sunday Single Back-up. A good bit of desk tidying, both real and virtual.  Getting ready to sort more of my mother's funeral and do the Executor bit on her Will.  Busy week so updates may be sparse for 10 days or so, but I will try a bit as correspondence builds up and I do find it a good stress reliever.

11 September 2021:- Total 38,515 including living.  More untangling and ORA (Online Repository Assistant) work on templates to make inputting faster...  And trimmed a big hedge so very tired!

10 September 2021:- Total 38,513 including living.  Some thoughtful untangling of old statements by correspondent with new found sources.  Added Mary Yolanda DOwling to front page for remembrance of 9/11.  The front page reference only will come off in a week or so but her page remains available.

08 September 2021:- Total 38,490 including living.  Just a few sources for existing people then into the garden.

07 September 2021:- Total 38,487 including living.  Even more of parish baptisms and some burials too from Hampshire.  Most of the old burials from the 1600's will probably never be joined up but they are there if only to show Dowlings were there!  A little maintenance on my GEDCOM file using GedCom Validator and some trawling through the old defunct crashed website files from 16 years ago to see if I can salvage anything.

06 September 2021:- Total 38,405 including living.  Even more of parish baptisms from Hampshire.  A join and a merge so two duplicates now joined as one.

05 September 2021:- Total 38,342 including living.  Sunday Single Back-up.  Even more parish baptisms from Hampshire to deal with a new correspondence apparently leading to this branch.

04 September 2021:- Total 38,275 including living.  Even more of parish marriages from Hampshire to deal with a new correspondence apparently leading to this branch... and I mowed lawns, trimmed a hedge and tidied up!

03 September 2021:- Total 38,202 including living.  A mass of parish additions from Hampshire to deal with a new correspondence apparently leading to this branch.  I managed so many today, despite funeral preparations for my mother, because of ORA (Online Repository Assistant).

02 September 2021:- Total 38,149 including living.  A few corrections but little genealogy of late as dealing with mother's recent death, funeral and probate.

1 September 2021:- Total 38,149 including living.  Monthly Double Back-up.

25 August 2021:- Total 38,149 including living.  My mother's page updated and released as a form of remembrance to her.
