As always, greetings to all readers of "Daltons in History"!!

September has come and gone – where did it go?! Kate and I spent a very pleasant week walking in Austria with friends. We stayed in the little village of Mutters, up in the mountains south of Innsbruck, and we were blessed with good weather and good company. Since our return family history has competed with other interests for my attention, but I have had contact with several DGS members and also been to a couple of meetings. One of the meetings was a seminar held at the University of London about online publishing given by a leading company in this field, Versita. The other was our local group meeting for Guild of One Name Study members, at which coincidentally there was a discussion about online publishing of journals. A number of family history societies are now investigating this as an option for distributing publications, rather than the traditional printing and posting with all the attendant associated costs. A few societies have taken the plunge and started to offer their publications online as an alternative, but without withdrawing the option of a printed copy. The DGS committee has had an initial discussion about this and we feel we need to do rather more work on exploring the implications and sounding out the views of our members before taking matters further. We will keep you informed as our thinking progresses.

As usual, you will find below all the latest news about DGS events and activities, together with other updates to keep you fully informed about what we are doing.

Future DGS events

For the 2013 Gathering and AGM we are returning to Ireland. We will be based in Dublin, as we were in 2005, and the event will take place over the weekend of Fri/Sat/Sun 26th/27th/28th July 2013. It is planned that we will stay at the Ashling Hotel, where we were accommodated in 2005. Since then the hotel has been considerably refurbished and I am confident that we will be very well looked after. You can see more about the Ashling Hotel on their website at Ciaran Dalton, our Irish Secretary and Chieftain of Clan Dalton, and I are now working to put a detailed programme together, and we will be concentrating on Dalton families with Irish ancestry. I am planning a visit to Dublin in November and further details will be provided on this website in December, and in Volume 57 of the DGS Journal when it is published at the end of the year. In the meantime please reserve the dates in your diary. We will hope to see many DGS members there and particularly those with Irish Dalton ancestry.

As announced at the Annual General Meeting, plans are now being made for 2014 and 2015 with the Burgundy area of France and Virginia, USA as the suggested locations. It has also been proposed that we return to South Wales, UK, maybe in 2016. The DGS committee is actively taking these plans forward and we will be making further more detailed announcements in the coming months about locations and dates. So watch this space!

And, as we like to plan ahead and explore other options for our annual gathering events, if you have any particular thoughts about where you might like to meet, or a particular Dalton theme you think we should incorporate, we would really like to hear from you with your ideas.

The Dalton International DNA Project (DIDP)

Our DNA project continues to attract considerable interest with a regular stream of enquiries about joining being received by myself and Karen Dalton Preston as administrators of the project. Last month we published a DIDP Update and this can be found in the "Dalton DNA Project" section of this website. Click here. This includes an up to date list of genetic family coordinators and details of the new reports that will appear towards the end of 2012.

We are indebted to Chris Pomery for all his assistance with the project over the past six years, which includes the preparation of three issues of the very comprehensive project progress report, and most recently a series of six reports covering individual genetic families. He has also given informative presentations at our annual gatherings on several occasions. We now have some 180 participants in the project, including three new recruits at the Yorkshire gathering, and well over 80% are members of one of the 15 identified genetic families.

The DGS Journal

Volume 56 of the DGS Journal for June 2012 was published and distributed back in July. As always this latest volume of our award winning Journal contains much of interest and, if you are not a DGS member, please think about joining the Society. This will entitle you to receive the Journal regularly, and much more. Full details are in the "Join the DGS" section of this website, or just click here.

The next issue of the Journal will be Volume 57 for December 2012. John Dalton, our Editor, always welcomes articles and other items for publication in the Journal. Any material for publication in Volume 57 should be sent to him as early as possible, and no later than Friday 16 November, 2012. This will enable John to plan the content of this and future issues. John is happy to advise and assist contributors and, if you have any questions or need help, please contact him by email at

Back issues of the DGS Journal continue to be available. On this website you can access the "DGS Journal Index" from the homepage or by clicking here. Here you will find a full synopsis of the contents of the Journal of the Dalton Genealogical Society commencing with Volume 1 published back in 1970 through to Volume 41 published in December 2004. Lists of contents are given for Volumes 42 to 56 and the full synopses will be uploaded in due course. Copies of all back numbers are available for purchase and these can be obtained through your local secretary using the order form that you will find on the link above. Details of prices, including postage and packing, will be found there as well.

We are most grateful to DGS member Mrs Pat Robinson, who holds stocks of back numbers for the Society and arranges for their distribution in response to requests from the local secretaries (address: Mallards, 3 High Street, The Green, Barrington, Cambridge CB2 5QX, UK email:


Enjoy this month’s issue of "Daltons in History", your regular monthly update on everything that is happening in the world of Dalton family history. We will be back again in November 2012.

Thank you for your attention.

Yours very sincerely

Michael Neale Dalton
Chairman and Honorary Life President of the Dalton Genealogical Society

Here are some more reminiscences taken from notes to the Chairman:

1. From Ann Clarke, Ripon, Yorkshire, England:

Thank you very much indeed to you, Howard and other committee members for an interesting, enjoyable and extremely well organised weekend in Hull. It must have taken a great deal of work and energy to accomplish. The whole atmosphere was most relaxed and friendly and it was good to meet other Daltons and to hear more about the Society. I was only sorry that time pressed so much on Sunday that there was no time to say a proper goodbye to everyone, but I hope you all enjoyed the visits to Garton-on-the-Wolds and your meal at the Pipe and Glass.

2. From Jack Rudisail, Texas, USA:

Really enjoyed the reunion. Keep in touch. Hoping to make it to Dublin next year.

3. From Steve Gardham of "The Spare Hands"

In response to my thank you note for the entertainment by "The Spare Hands" after dinner on the Saturday evening, Steve writes:

"The amount you raised for the Yorkshire Garland Group’s work with the Hull Maritime Museum was £115 so we are well pleased with that. Many thanks for contributing to the project. I will have a look at the website and video and will send on your message to the others".

4. From Howard J Dalton, Poole, Dorset, England:

It was a most excellent weekend enjoyed by all and in excellent company, and Howard and yourself provided a feast of events. Thank you again for the fridge magnet. I have now acquired a small collection of them!

5. From Robin Prytherch, Bristol, North Somerset, England:

Both John (Robin’s brother from Australia) and I thoroughly enjoyed the Gathering in Yorkshire - great fun and interesting.

6. From Kate Dalton, Reigate, Surrey, England:

A very enjoyable weekend and it was a pleasure to organise the raffle on the Saturday evening. I was delighted to collect a total of £116 to donate to Breast Cancer Care, a very worthy charity that does such valuable work. It was particularly pleasing to see the generosity of everyone, particularly bearing in mind that you had already dipped your hands into your pockets for the "Spare Hands" to support their work with the Hull Maritime Museum, another worthwhile cause. Thank you to you all and to those who donated the raffle prizes – there were so many of them, and they just seemed to go on and on!

7. From Jim & Julia Dalton, Ripon, North Yorkshire, England:

We greatly enjoyed the weekend, particularly Helen Good's talk and the visit to Holy Trinity.

8. Howard Dalton, Thornton Dale, North Yorkshire, England:

"I was delighted when the DGS chose Yorkshire, and in particular Hull, for their Gathering in 2012, but then to be asked by MND to help with the organising was an even greater honour.

There were so many highlights it would be unfair to single one out in particular, but mention has to be made of the visit to Beverley on the Saturday afternoon. Many members climbed up into the central tower and the guide lifted one of the huge ceiling bosses that gives access to the Nave below. Almost on cue Howard J appeared below and we all called down to him, though he couldn't see us. He later recalled that when he heard his name being called from above, he thought he was being summoned from on high, which he was!!

All the arrangements that MND and I had made worked out superbly and thanks have to go to all the parties we worked with; Martin at Hull History Centre, Helen Good, "Spare Hands", Jean at Holy Trinity and James at the Pipe and Glass, to name but a few. The main thanks, however, have to go to all the members who attended that weekend, and as I have said in the past, the variety of personalities make these Gatherings such memorable occasions".

9. Mike and Kate Dalton, Thetford, Norfolk, England:

The main impression Kate and I came away with this year was of a very relaxed atmosphere. The annual Gathering is always a very friendly affair with the opportunity to meet new Daltons and catch up with old friends but this one stood out as being more close-knit. Perhaps it was the impromptu occupation by Daltons of the hotel bar to watch the Olympic opening ceremony or the way we all squeezed into a few cars for the visits which mixed and matched folk up nicely or maybe the wonderful pub in South Dalton where we were looked after so well for our meal on the Sunday evening. Whatever it was, for us, it added a gloss to the weekend over and above the usual superb planning and organisation which goes into every Gathering.

Another abiding memory is the tremendous surprise, when visiting Beverley Minster, of discovering that the climb to the roof was not, as anticipated, to see the view from the parapet but was actually - a visit to the roof! A fascinating insight to a hidden gem. The structure itself was impressive, as was expected, but to find a fully working man-powered treadmill which then operated a floor hatch allowing us to "cooee" like schoolkids at the people below... well I think a few folk felt rather god like at that moment, gazing down a looong way to the Minster floor and the mystified people below wondering from where the ethereal heavenly voices were emanating. For me the highlight was finding, engraved on the roof gable window, sketches of various aeroplanes. Unfortunately my camera refused to focus on them and insisted on looking at the scenery beyond. Who says computers are clever! A very successful trip indeed.

In the June 2012 issue of “Daltons in History”, the last instalment in this series covered the year 2000. This personal account of the history of the Dalton Genealogical Society by Michael Dalton continues with the fifteenth instalment, commencing at the beginning of 2001.

My recollections of 2001 start with the launch by Millicent Craig of the Dalton Query Team. In her announcement in the January 2001 issue of "Daltons in History", Millicent wrote:

"With the aim of better serving our Dalton family worldwide, a Research Team has been assembled from three continents to handle your queries. Each member has special geographical expertise and collectively we have assembled a large Dalton database that is still growing. You may continue to post your query on the Guest Page or if you prefer privacy, you may contact one of the three Team Captains. Your query will be passed on to the most appropriate responder. All researchers will be following the same format and will normally acknowledge your query within a 72 hour period (unless they are away). For expediency, please remit as much data as possible with your questions. If you have submitted a query in the past, please try again since there is now a host of talent at your disposal. If we cannot help with your particular problem at this time, we will be forthright and let you know. If you desire additional exposure for your query in the hopes of making a family connection, we will be pleased to enter it in the "Daltons to the Forefront" section of "Daltons in History" or if suitable, it will be printed in the DGS Journal. Those readers who have Dalton expertise in a given area of the world or wish to either contribute data or become a member of the Dalton Query Team are welcome and may contact the editor, Millicent Craig".

The Team Captain for the UK was Michael Cayley, appointed as DGS Librarian the previous year, handling general queries pertaining to the UK and India. He was assisted by Lucy Slater (covering Cambridge and vicinity and all other areas in which she had conducted research), Pamela Lynam (the Norwich area) and David Kirkley (North Yorkshire, Teesdale, Durham and Westmorland areas). The Team Captain for North America was Millicent handling queries relating to New England, New York, Argentina, and general queries. She was assisted by K T Mapstone (several counties of Ireland, and Illinois), Melanie Crain (Virginia, Kentucky, South Carolina, Georgia and Missouri), Mike Dalton (County Kerry, Ireland, Ohio, Oregon, California and Irish Daltons in the UK) and Diane Jackman (Newfoundland, Canada). And the Team Captain for Australia was Maureen Collins, Australian Secretary, handling queries related to Australian Daltons. She was assisted by John D'Alton and his father, J. C. E. D'Alton (Tasmania and Victoria, Australia).

The Dalton Query Team was very much part of Millicent’s vision of how the DGS needed to be organised in order to provide the best possible service to all those now contacting the Society via the website. The Guest Page was attracting large numbers of queries, and Millicent was finding it increasingly difficult to respond to them all herself. In her statement she refers to the large Dalton database that had been assembled, and this of course was the forerunner of the Dalton Data Bank that we have online today. It was in September 2001 that the Dalton Data Bank (DDB) website was launched with then 10,000 entries, following the collection of data over the preceding years. This online facility was masterminded by Millicent with technical assistance from her daughter, Mary Lou Weber-Elias. Here is Millicent’s announcement from the September 2001 issue of "Daltons in History":

"To better serve Daltons worldwide, the reams of data and files that have accumulated over the past few years are being organized into the DALTON DATA BANK. The files are the work of volunteers who have spent countless hours extracting Dalton data from a wide variety of sources. The DALTON DATA BANK will eventually include the records of Daltons who were in Africa, Argentina, Australia, Canada, England, France, India, New Zealand, Ireland, Scotland, the United States, Wales, the West Indies and any other locations where Daltons settled. Currently there may be upwards of 75,000 persons of Dalton descent worldwide whom we eventually want to reach from our desk tops. Relative to One Name Studies, the Dalton ONS (DGS) is among the largest of such one-name populations.

Our Dalton brethren in all parts of the world are acquiring computer skills and access to the internet. Accordingly, the number of queries posed by them is increasing. With our limited staff of volunteers, we visualize a time when we will be unable to handle the queries effectively. Therefore, by making the data bases available on-line, researchers will be able to do more preliminary searching.

The BANK opens with about 10,000 names including those of spouses, children, in-laws, sponsors, etc. It is an ambitious, on-going project and data will be processed and added to the BANK each month. Announcement of new files will be made on the DGS Home Page of "Daltons in History", the Dalton Gang Letter and the Dalton Rootsweb List. If you have researched your family and have Dalton files that you would like to contribute to the BANK they will be decidedly welcome. Especially needed is New York data. In the 1880 Census, NY had the highest concentration of Daltons but data from parish registers is quite sparse.

Because many Daltons are novices to genealogy and to searching the net, the data pages are being constructed with ease of use in mind. Country/county files can be searched using the Edit/Find function of your browser and by using any key word including given names, dates and ages. It is not necessary to download files in order to view their content. Passwords are not required and an entire file is free to browse. At the outset you will note that there is a preponderance of Irish data but this data is useful to Australians, UK members, Americans and Canadians because of the great migrations of Irish ancestors. In the future, large UK and USA files will be added. It is always the onus of the user to verify data within the files.

Your DALTON DATA BANK will always be a work in progress and eventually it may move to larger quarters. We look forward to your comments either through the Guest Page or by email".

Again, the launch of the Dalton Data Bank by Millicent was very much part of her vision for the future of the DGS and what better tribute to that vision than to record the phenomenal growth of the DDB with now in excess of 430,000 entries. I suspect that none of us (not even Millicent!) ever dreamt that it would grow with such vigour in the space of just 11 years.

Against this backdrop of dramatic improvements to our ability to answer queries and provide so much data, freely searchable online, what else happened in 2001? Well, Lucy Slater, who retired as the Society’s Executive Secretary at the 2000 AGM, undertook to organise the 2001 DGS Gathering in Cambridge. In her newsletter in DGSJ Vol 33 (Nov 2000), Lucy wrote about her retirement as Secretary and then continued:

"About five minutes after I had shed my responsibilities as Secretary, I heard someone say "How about holding the next AGM and Gathering at Cambridge next year". There was a chorus "Yes, Lucy can organise it for us".

And so it was! Arrangements were made by Lucy for the event to take place at Girton College, Cambridge where Lucy was an undergraduate, over the last weekend of July 2001. The Gathering turned out to be a great success with a good turnout of members and their families, and perfect hot and sunny weather for all to enjoy. Most of us arrived on the Friday evening to find ourselves accommodated in the relatively new Wolfson Court, an annexe of Girton College situated off Grange Road on the north west outskirts of the city. On the Saturday morning we assembled in the Stanley Library of Girton College, a very fine Victorian Room, furnished by Lady Stanley of Alderney to house her books. The last time I had visited Girton was when I was an undergraduate at Trinity College, Cambridge back in the 1960s and Girton was a women’s college. We used to cycle out of the city centre up the Huntingdon Road to meet students of the fairer sex, but that has all changed now with the colleges being mixed. Girton itself though still looked much the same as it did some 35 years before.

At the AGM Pamela Richards and Antony Cox both retired as DGS committee members, and we thanked them for all their hard work. Pamela had been a committee member for 15 years and written many articles for the DGS Journal over that period. Tony became a committee member in 1998 and had been very supportive during his time with us. I was always so disappointed to miss the committee meeting that he hosted at his home in Derbyshire, because my car broke down! It meant that Dick Hamilton missed it as well because I was giving him a lift. We were very pleased to elect Howard J Dalton to join the committee and, of course, Howard J (not to be confused with Howard!) is still with us and has for many years acted as our minutes secretary. Also at the AGM we received very full reports from Millicent as American Secretary and Maureen as Australian Secretary. Millicent updated us on the progress with the Dalton Query Team and the Dalton Data Bank referred to above, and she also made an initial proposal for a Dalton DNA study, another visionary idea which of course is now the much respected Dalton International DNA Project, today with 180 participants.

There was plenty of time for informal meeting and discussion both before and after the AGM and, amongst other things Michael Cayley, our then Librarian and Archivist, demonstrated the DGS database that he had built up on his laptop computer. All this work was subsequently fed into the Dalton Data Bank. I also remember Howard J Dalton showing us video recordings that he had made at earlier DGS gatherings. During the Saturday afternoon, we split into various groups and Lucy had asked me to lead a tour of Trinity College and St John’s College, both with strong Dalton connections. My namesake Michael Dalton, the famous lawyer, was a Trinity man, and Rev Timothy Dalton was at St John’s. Both were important members of the Cambridgeshire Dalton family, about which Lucy wrote several articles for the Journal. It was very enjoyable for me to show DGS members round my old college, and to reminisce about my time there. I still count myself so fortunate to have had the opportunity to spend four years in Cambridge in such beautiful surroundings, and it is a part of my life that never fades in my memory. I am lucky enough to be invited back to Trinity at regular intervals for reunion dinners, and I shall be there again next year to meet up with my contemporary fellow members of the college.

On the Saturday evening our DGS annual dinner was held in Wolfson Court. Lucy reported that "the food was good and the wine flowed perhaps a little too freely, but it was a very hot night and people were thirsty". I certainly remember it as a most enjoyable evening and I recall sitting drinking outside in the courtyard into the small hours – well isn’t that what Cambridge and family history are all about? Relaxing in good company and sharing our stories – such an important part of a civilised life.

Sunday was another enjoyable day. We visited the village of Little Eversden, where Ruth Leet the wife of Timothy Dalton was born. We went inside the 14th century village church, and saw the cottage where Ruth was born. We then went on to Wimpole Hall where we sat outside for lunch and toured the Hall, the home of the Chicheley family. Faith Keymer had researched links between the Daltons of Cambridgeshire and the Chicheleys.

Looking back over 2001, it was a good year for the DGS. I have covered the highlights, but alongside these, two issues of the Journal were published and, of course, "Daltons in History", then in its fourth year, appeared without fail every month. Time and space preclude a detailed summary of the contents of these publications but, as always, they added much to the wealth of written material available to our members. The pattern of the way that the DGS operates today was being established and as I move on to the later instalments in this series, we will remind ourselves of the strengths of our Society and the debt we owe to all those who worked so hard in these formative years at the beginning of the new millennium.

I hope you are all enjoying lovely fall weather by now. In Las Vegas, our blistering summer heat is now behind us, and we are enjoying warm temperatures and very blue skies.

If you are already planning to attend the Annual DGS Gathering in Dublin next summer, or if you need another reason to go, Tourism Ireland has designated 2013 as the year of "The Gathering Ireland". How appropriate that the DGS will be gathering in Ireland, too!

And, now, the Canadian branch of, has announced a collaboration with the event sponsors. The following was posted on Dick Eastman's Genealogy Newsletter. This may be of special interest to members in Canada.

Tourism Ireland and Announce Upcoming Collaboration to Promote The Gathering Ireland 2013

Toronto, ON (28th September, 2012) – Tourism Ireland is delighted to announce an upcoming collaboration with to promote "The Gathering Ireland 2013". The Gathering is an open invitation to the world to come and visit Ireland in 2013 for a unique celebration of all things Irish. Ireland may be a small country, but the Irish have put down their roots all over the world. More than 70 million people worldwide now claim Irish ancestry; quite something considering the total population of the island of Ireland is just over 6 million.

Canada’s connections with the island of Ireland go back at least 200 years and today nearly 5 million Canadians claim Irish ancestry. Tourism Ireland and will work together to reach these Canadians, helping them trace their Irish roots and inviting them to be a part of this unique celebration.

" is really excited to help Tourism Ireland invite Canadians to Ireland in 2013", said Julie Wingate, Marketing Director of "Ireland is a big part of many people’s ancestral journey and "The Gathering Ireland" represents a natural next step for anyone with Irish roots to take their family history experience to the next level. And of course, anyone who isn’t sure if they have Irish roots can check by visiting and signing up for our 14-day free trial.

"Tourism Ireland is thrilled to work together with on the promotion of The Gathering Ireland here in Canada,” says Jayne Shackleford, Manager of Tourism Ireland. “The Gathering is the most ambitious tourism initiative ever undertaken in Ireland and it’s about asking anyone who has Irish blood, a link to Ireland, or even just a love of our country to join the Irish for a series of amazing and diverse events throughout 2013. We can’t think of a more natural fit".

The Gathering is the people’s party. It will kick off in spectacular style on New Year’s Eve 2012 with an event that will receive world coverage and will then be celebrated through clan gatherings, festivals, special sporting events, music and concerts taking place all across the country, all year long. Many Irish celebrities have put their name behind this citizen-led initiative such as Liam Neeson and Pierce Brosnan.

How Irish are you? Discover your Irish roots by visiting for a 14-day free trial and to be a part of the Gathering visit

North American Secretary

Thank you to all who have contributed to the Octoberber 2012 issue of "Daltons in History".

Due to time constraints some of the usual "suspects" do not appear this month but will hopefully be back in November 2012.

Please send me any ideas you may have for future articles or areas of research we could look at. New ideas are definitely needed!!

Please consider contributing a short description of any Dalton-related travels you may have undertaken anywhere in the world. Also members who are travelling to do research, visit a Dalton-connected site, or have made a connection to a distant cousin through the DGS. might be interested in letting other members know what they are doing through "Daltons in History". Photos from your travels would be appreciated. Also, it would be a way of helping members get to know each other a little better, and might help members who are widely dispersed geographically to feel a bit more connected.

Contributions for the Novemberber 2012 issue need to be with me no later than 25th October, 2012. (e-mail:
