Welcome to the Bower Cottage GEDCOM Project!   This project went online on June 14, 2000 from the databases of nine Bower[s] researchers. It is rather small right now, just 3,527 individuals in 1,284 marriages. We won't be this small for long, though!

The next update of this project will begin in September with the new issue going online in October. If you would like to submit your data, just contact me, but please, read the guidelines for submission first.

Entering the project you will see my name as the sole submitter. This is NOT true. I am one of nine submitters. The PAF program I used to generate this database would not further itself without a given name and address. If anyone knows how to get past this, please contact me so I can make the change for the next version in October. If you need to contact a submitter and are a member of one of the Bower Community rootsweb.com discussion groups, please post a message to your respective list with the subject line of "seeking GEDCOM project submitter." Your message will be forwarded to all the Community research groups to make sure the submitter sees your message.

If you are NOT a member of one of the above research groups (...and why not? ), please address your message to me with the same subject line as above. I will forward your message all the research teams.
