Prouse/Prowse Information
Posted by: Carl Prowse (ID *****2983) Date: February 23, 2006 at 12:20:10

I put a similar message to this on the RootsWeb Prowse mailing list several months ago, but there was only two responses. I just had a look and my original message is missing and only one of the responses appears on the list.
So, I am reposting this, but via the Prowse Message Board, which is also echoed to RootsWeb Prowse list, in order to reach the widest audience.

I may also post it to the Prowse Family Genealogy Forum at for the same reason.

It is great to receive snippets of Prowse info via the various Prowse/Prouse mailing lists and web sites, but I cannot think of a systematic way to retain them.

It would be really useful if there was a central point where we could store this info on the net, that was easily accessed and searchable. We could all contribute the information we have collected to share with others..

For example, I have Prowse/Prouse BD&M in Victoria, Australia from 1836 until 1920, plus some later info
I also have BD&M info for Devon (M from 1754 to 1837, Baptisms from 1813 to 1839 and Burials from 1813 to 1837)

Some people may also want to contribute their own family trees.

Does anyone else think that this may be of use?


The List Admin for the RootsWeb list, Gary, posted the following reply;

This is in reply to Carl's suggestion of a "database" of PRO*SE information that we can all draw on for information for our respective trees.

Carl, I think this is an excellent suggestion and I would support this idea in any way I can. I being a past member of GOONS for the PROWSE / PROUSE Surname and similar names have all kinds of snipets that I could add to this database.

I would invite all other members of this mail list to put forth their suggestions in this regard.


Elmer Larsen, the organiser of the Salt Lake City Prowse/Prouse Reunion in June, 2006 responded directly as follows;

"Sounds as if our minds are working on the same thing. This idea was one of major interest for us to discuss at the Salt Lake City Reunion in June, 2006. This subject has been an ever present idea with me since attending the Plymouth reunion and I think I have a plan that will work even though I am just a beginner in this area of Research."


So, is there any interest.?
