This blog will reflect the progress of my genealogy project(s). I will describe any major changes that I make on my website and I will document how I solved some brick walls.

More census images

This week I've been looking up BMD and census records on   I have added data and images to about 70 people.  Most of the updates are HAMILTON records; a few are DUNN or JORDAN.  Names of all the people who have been changed are listed on the Recent Updates page of the Doyle site.

James Doyle - the one who went to Toledo, OH

I have found the following birthdates for James Doyle:
  • 1861 census    age 26 - birth year 1835
  • 1871 census    age 26 - birth year 1845
  • 1871 marriage  age 34 - birth year 1837
  • 1881 census    age 40 - birth year 1841
  • 1885 Civil Service List - birth year 1839
  • 1891 census    age 52 - birth year 1839
  • 1900 census    age 63 - birth year 1837
Presumably, either 1837 or 1839 is the likely year of his birth.  I've chosen to go with 1837.

Cyndi's List

I have submitted both my website and this blog to Cyndi's List.  I'm hoping that will drive more traffic to the site and help me find more family members.
