Putting our Howse in Order - December 2020

Hello everyone. We've reached the end of another year, and in the case of 2020 who will be able to forget it? I'm sure we all hope for better things in 2021. As I said at the end of last month's newsletter, I hope you were able to get some family time in. My wife and I braved the virus (and the weat...

Re: Putting our Howes in order - November 2020

I have since found the marriage certificate for Rose May Howes. It shows one detail we had missed: her father was Charles Edwin Howes - a hardware warehouseman - deceased before 1916 I'm still none the wiser, however! Worth noting that fathers were sometimes marked as deceased in marriage registers ...

Putting our Howes in order - November 2020

Hello everyone. You don't need me to tell you we've had another busy month! While the US politicians have been scrambling around trying to figure out what actually happened at the beginning of the month, we've had our heads down, beavering away. Here's the current state of play as we updated our onl...

Putting our Howes in order - October 2020

Hello everyone. One of the joys of genealogy is that to do it well, one needs to concentrate. And that means that I am not spending too much of my time on the internet fretting about the US election, the result of which now seems a lot more personal since I became a citizen, even though I have lived...

Putting our House in order - September 2020

Hello everyone. Happy new month. I’m writing from Florida where I returned last week to celebrate my Ruby wedding with the long-suffering (about 40 years!) Mrs H. So please forgive the vanity picture, taken at London Corinthian Sailing Club right by the River Thames in the middle of London, on Septe...

Putting our Howze in order - August 2020

Hi folks. Happy new month. Couple of milestones passed this month As you will have seen from the covering email, we have passed 40,000 people named Howes in our database. That's people named Howes at birth. It does not include those who became Howes by marriage. Honestly, I don't know how many there...

Putting our Hows in order - July 2020

Hello everyone. Two weekends ago I was at a farm in upstate Massachusetts to celebrate the marriage of my younger son. Given today's strange circumstances, we had a socially distanced "minimony" with only eight of us present: bride and groom, both sets of parents, the officiant and his spouse, frien...

Re: Putting our Howse in order - May 2020

A gold star is due to correspondent Tim Howes from Brisbane in Australia, who meticulously figured out the answer to our puzzle. Ada Sweet was the sister of Maria Sweet who was already in our database, having married an Alfred Argent Howes. Ada's son's father's name was stated to be Alfred Horace Ho...

Putting our Howes in order - June 2020

Hello everyone. Well that's half the year gone. With all the news we've had around the world since DEcember, it feels like twelve months have passed already! What could the next six months hold for us? I sincerely hope the lockdowns stop soon as there's been a dearth of information about people with...

Putting our Howse in order - May 2020

Hello everyone. Since last month's newsletter, I flew to England to help take care of my mother who is very poorly. Fortunately, I arrived a few days before the British government imposed a mandatory 14-day quarantine restriction. Even though not subject to the regime, I've been close to nobody othe...
