Daw, Dawe

Background

This project was initiated in Feb 2008 to add science to the genealogists' toolkit to help sort the families into groups and highlight connections where records are missing. Join up and help us sort the families out. Some useful links The Administrator's DAW(E) family are from Devonshire, England, where the name is particularly common and it can get quite confusing sorting out who belongs where, but as they spread far and wide, the name is found in many countries. For example, a search on Ancestry census information for DAWE, exact matches, shows the majority are in England, but with many in both the States and Australia. Repeating this search for DAW, exact matches, shows that this is the more common form of the name in the States.
