My name is James John Rodney Dowie (better known to my family and friends as Roy) and I am the Webmaster of this site.

I have created this site using MyHeritage.com. This site will allow us to explore into our family history and even publish our  family tree on the Internet.
If you have any comments or feedback about this site, please click here to contact me.

Dear Family,

We talked about this event now for the last couple of years and nothing seems to materialise. All the seniors in the family has passed on since and now we can only look back up to the latest seniors left.

We must definately make a plan to get this of the ground. I would suggest me form a committee to discuss the event and start the planning.

Please let me know your views and pass word on to the rest of the family that is not on the website.

First of all i suggest we make sure everyone has a means of contact so that the message can reach everyone.

Regards from Djibouti and may God Bless all of you my dear family.

Hi almal,

Die gedagte het by ons opgekom om hierdie jaar, 2010 'n familie saamtrek te hou vir die Dowie Familie. Daar is twee gedagtes om dit oor die Paasnaweek of in Desember te hou. Kom ons dink bietjie daaroor en laat waai met julle gedagtes en idees. Ek sal 'n voorlopige program saamstel en as julle weet van ons familie wat nog nie by die website aangesluit het nie nooi hulle asb of laat my weet. Ons wil graag almal betrek en daarom dink ek dat 'n latere datum sal meer van pas wees.

Liefde groete
