Putting our Howse in order - July 2019

Hello everyone. The newsletter is a tad early this month because I’ve just started 15 consecutive days of regattas on my beloved Norfolk Broads! In case you haven’t heard it before, I will say that “In most parts of the world, people muck around in boats, but on the Norfolk Broads, we boat around in...

Re: Putting our House in order - June 2019

Some of our puzzles are easier than others! Many thanks to correspondents Stephen and Cheryl who both came up with the following excerpt from the book: " The History of Live Music in Britain Volume 1: 1950-1967 " by Simon Frith, Matt Brennan, Matt Cloonan and Emma Webster: "Howes also first entered ...

Putting our House in order - June 2019

Hello everyone. Here is June's newsletter. The sun is high in the sky and I've been out sailing most weekends, but still we have been busy, Bumper month for the website! We added almost 4,800 people and finished with over 150,000 for the first time. How did we do it? Well, we were busy anyway, but w...

Putting our Howze in order - May 2019

Hello everyone. Happy new month. In May we added over 700 people and finished with 145,731 people in our database and fleshed out quite a few other families. Our research has taken us to all four corners of the world. I do have to say that our enthusiasm for this task is undimmed: it's still fun! Th...

Putting our Hows in order - April 2019

Happy new month, everyone. Wow! We are 1/3 of the way through 2019. The older I get the faster time seems to go by . . . . or am I just wasting too much time on Facebook? Maybe it's both! This month we added 750 people to our database and ended up with just over 145,000. Will we get to 150,000 by Ro...

Putting our Howes in order - March 2019 - again late

3rd of April and no monthly email for March yet! Apologies. I’ve had a pretty hectic social calendar the past few weeks, not the least important of which was the annual conference of the Guild of One-Name Studies last weekend. Quite a lot to report, actually. Buckle your seatbelts! Here goes. RootsT...

Re: Putting our Howse in order - February 2019 (only slightly late!)

Hi Peter. Thanks for the positive feedback and speaking up about your issue. Here are two tips for using the search facilities on our site: 1) if you know the name of the Howes/Howse/House etc spouse, then better to use that, because there are fewer duplicates (except for Smith!). Put their names in...

Putting our Howse in order - February 2019 (only slightly late!)

Hello folks. It's March 3 and I'm sitting in a Starbucks in Salt Lake City, shattered, basking in the afterglow of RootsTech 2019, that is to episode 1 of RootsTech 2019! Episode 2 happens in London on October 24-26. I have been an Ambassador for Salt Lake City and will be for London too. So I'm afr...

Putting our House in order - January 2019

Happy new month, everyone. Apologies for the slight delay in receipt of this note but our Bulletin Board software is now very rusty and unpredictable. When I went to log in to draft my monthly newsletter it claimed not to recognize me, which is an obvious problem! We’re back on the road, at least te...

Re: Going round the HOWZEs - December 2018

Do not bother with a marriage for this couple. There wasn't one!
Mabel died under her maiden name of Woolford in 1938. Thanks again to Celia.
