Putting our Howze in order - October 2019

Hello everyone. What a crackerjack month October was! Not only did we add another 1,600 people to our database, finishing very close to 160,000, but I went to two different genealogy events and came away with stories from both. The Circus comes to Town Early in the month, the Guild of One-Name Studi...

Putting our Hows in order - September 2019

Hello everyone. Difficult to believe that our year is 3/4 gone already. For most of our readers, the sun is getting lower in the sky every day. As I look out of my window here in Norfolk (England) the river is close to flood levels, the temperature is set to drop a few degrees in the next few hours ...

Putting our Howes in order - August 2019

Hello everyone. Happy new month! Our elves have been busy again. We added 1,000 people during August and finished with 156,256 people in our database. And, my sideboard has a little silverware on it from my yachting adventures this month at Wroxham, Horning, Breydon Water, Oulton and Barton on the N...

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...
