If you have access to Ancestry.com records all my Dowling data is on-line under the member trees. 

Look for two trees in particular

'DowlingMaster' and


Not just my own ancestry but any Dowling's I come across get put in here.  It does not mean that if your family appear in the DowlingMaster that we are closely related but it does mean I have looked, if only briefly, into that branch. 

Go to Ancestry.com.

I am not responding much to mail at present as I am so busy with work and the genealogy queries can take me a week.  I am trying to catch up on renewing this site and a backlog of queries.  I get great enjoyment out of these but I have to pay the bills!

My Dowling research, so far, is on-line with Ancestry.com and you are very welcome to check that out. 

I am based in Hertfordshire in England, United Kingdom.

The Dowling Family History site, due to data loss, is only a tiny remnant of its former self at present.

Thanks for those who sent their support for what was a very frustrating time after realising that years of amateur labour had disappeared into the ether. 

Also my appreciation to those who advised about using an archives to rebuild the site after the problems that resulted in its loss.  If you want to get to the archive click here.  In many of the 'captures' the data is there even if the formatting is lost.  I cannot seem to just copy and paste the code to re-launch it as it was, so it looks like rebuilding the hard way.

Welcome. This site is generally a genealogical site and deals with

The Dowling Family Name, history and origins, research into the name Dowling (a one name study) and other name related information 


If you are a Dowling, Doolan, Dooling or other variation this could be of interest to you... 


Thanks for dropping in.
