      Hi Brian

      Eventually I did get through to your website.

      Although we go by the name Dowling, with the variety of spellings, the Gaelic name is actually Dubhlainn as far as I can tell. That's a fair bit different to Dunlaing the Co.Laois name. Quite inconvenient really, because there seems to be plenty of info about the Laois Dowlings but not much about Dubhlainn.

      My 1760s Michael Dowling was a Tubbrid man. Whether he was born there or not I don't know. Certainly there are only 2 Dowling graves at Tubbrid, only one related. At Castlegrace a few miles south there are 4. One is a memorial to relatives lost at sea in 1855. The other 3 I don't know who they are, although one mentions a Michael Dowling of Tubbrid.

      Erected by John and William Dowling of Victoria Australia
      In memory of their parents
      John Dowling
      Died 1842 aged 65 years.
      Died 1842 aged 60 years.

      Michael Died 1842 aged 28 years.
      Edmund Died 1842 aged 17 years.
      James Died 1842 aged 14 years.
      Their cousins Bridget Glasheen
      Died 1842 Aged 20 years.
      William Fraher
      Died 1896 aged 60 years
      their Aunt Mary Fraher
      Died 1881 Aged 82 Years
      Also Judith Aherne

      John Dowling son of Michael Dowling

      Loving Memory

      Philip 1947
      John (Husband) 1949

      Here Lies the Body
      of John Doling who died
      Janury 7 1760 Aged 84.
      His wife Margt Goifr
      died 7 .7. 1747 aged
      55 years.

      I had about 1800 Dowlings on BK5, until my old computer got a virus, and my backup went too! That was about 4 years ago. I was so ticked off I didn't go near the Dowlings for several years! My brother has just found an earlier disk with about 1000 names which I plan on expanding on shortly.

      Any advice as the whether BK5 is the program to use or not would be appreciated.

      I have about 20 A4 pages of Dowling Families which I formed up from Baptism and Marriage details I got through WHS and Hibernian Researchers. I'll send that through to you if you like. I posted it to the Tipperary List about a month ago.

      There are some possibilities on the Hearth Money Rolls. Darby Dowly at Rochestown, just a few miles east of Tubbrid. John and Michael Dowell at Neddans near Ardfinnan. When I looked through Laffans book on the Hearth Money Rolls, I wasn't quite up to speed on the variety of ways to spell the name, so I probably missed some others in the area. Even so if I had got them all, there's not much chance of positively making a connection with my mob.

      Cheers Mick Dowling

      Hi Brian

      Following are the families of Michael Dowling taken from my 'big list' of baptisms and marriages. The spelling of the surname is that used on the earliest documentation for that person.

      JOHN DOOLING 1789-January 1855 & Bridget Glasseen 1804-January 1855
      William. d.o.b. approximately 1822 going by his age of 78 years when he died in 1900
      as stated on Victorian Death Certificate No. 255.
      Michael. d.o.b. approximately 1826 going by his age of 29 years when he died in 1855
      aboard The Guiding Star.
      John. Baptised 3 July 1830 Ballylooby. No. 564 & HRC. Sp. Pat Keating,
      Judy Brien. Priest. John Walsh.

      James. d.o.b. approximately 1840 going by his age of 15 years when he died in 1855
      aboard The Guiding Star.

      The Guiding Star. John and Bridget Dooling, sons Michael, Edmund, and James, nieces Judith Ahern, and Bridget Glasheen were all lost at sea in 1855. Not 1854 as the Lancefield Victoria monument states, nor 1842 as the Castlegrace Co.Tipperary monument states. Their ship The Guiding Star left Liverpool on 9 January 1855 sailing for Australia. According to The Age newspaper of the 8th of September 1855, the ship was last spoken off the Brazilian coast at lat.16S, lon. 34W, on 12 February 1855. The ship was last sighted at about lat. 44S, lon.25W. in about April 1855 sailing into the 60 mile wide bay of a horseshoe shaped iceberg, in which it must have become entrapped, and eventually sunk.

      There you have it. Once I get around to putting all the tree on disk I'll send you a copy. Ditto with the updated family, currently on 25 A4 pages.

      The families left Ireland from about 1850, the first arriving in Sydney in 1852. The last to get here were my mob who arrived as late as 1875.

      Thanks for your opinion on software. I'll try and track down FTM. I've got Microsoft Access, I'll have a bit of a play around with that also.
