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.

Many (many, many) changes & additions to the Doyle site

Over the past month or so I've received a lot of information from cousins of various degrees.  It's kept me busy doing updates and additions and doing online lookups.  Much of what I received is now online.  (Finally, some might say.)

Mary Carroll sent me copies of two wonderful photos: John and Lydia (Nolan) Burns, and Jane Burns, their daughter, who became Sister Helen of the Cross.  Mary had received the photos from Jerry Moore who then provided me with a large selection of photos and a great deal of information on the descendants of John K Hamilton

I've added some of the photos and most of the new details that Jerry sent, and augmented that with lots of records from various online sources.  The families with the most additions are the Wilds (John and Elizabeth's daughter Mary Jane) and the Moores (John and Elizabeth's daughter Edith Eileen)

RJ Svitak photographed the tombstone of John G Hamilton and his wife Selma C Oksendahl and posted it on for me.  It's now attached to John's and Selma's records.

Charlotte (Watson) Grimshaw sent news of a new daughter and of Edmund Grimshaw's marriage and baby.

I've also made changes to Regans, Jordans, and Dunns.

As always, check the Recent Updates page for a list of all changes since the last upload on 16 April 2012.
