Both Shantnu and Pravin traveled to India last month. we used this opportunity to gather information. We were able to contact many relatives in Jaipur and in Indore. We are specially thankful to Pramod Dashora (both of them) and Deepti Dashora for valuable information provided by them/ Through their efforts we also were able to get the latest edition (November 2004+2005 corrections Pages) of Nandlal Dashora's book "Dashora (Brahmin) Jati Mewad Wanshawalian avam Wansh Parichay" i.e. Introduction to Dashora Brahmin Families and their Family Trees. We have been able to incorporate many of these families in our tree structure. As a result now we have more than 4000 names in our data-base. Here are some examples of charts that we are able to produce.
|Our own family tree starting from Sitramji Mishra's Parents|

Dashora's book such as|
We now have some of the book by Nandlal Dashora with genealogical charts for Dashora Families in Udaipur. We also have a directory with names and addresses of Dashoras from Udaipur region published by him, however we have difficulty in cross-correlating the names in the directory with names in family trees. Also since the female decedents and inter-relationships are not mentioned in there we are attempting to get information to be able to connect Udaipur Dashora Families to our tree.

R. Manohar received a booklet from from Udaipur which gives family trees of most of Dashora families there. However we do not find too many links between Indore and Udaipur Dashora people. It appears that the MP group remained unconnected to the Udaipur to a large extent. Udaipur charts refer to Gotra and Avatank - we are not sure of these for MP Dashoras. It appears that Narendra Dashora has written an earlier book tracing the History of migration from Gujarat. That book may provide more clues to relationship between MP and Rajasthan Dashoras. Hopefully we may be able get hold of that book one day.
Also the Udaipur books/charts are silent about any female names. This is a real set back as most of relationship information comes via marriage. Connections between Udaipur Dashoras and between them and MP Dashoras are hard to establish without information regarding females and marriage data. Also we realize that we do not know of good sources in the Udaipur who may be enthusiastic, willing and able to research and provide info to us.
July 10, 2005
A new section "what is new" is added which is aimed informing what is new and providing links to archived information.

The monthly merge is completed and checked with many errors fixed and duplicates removed. We have about 1100 individuals in our database after this merge.
Anik adds php modules to web server at Shantnu's home and first demonstration www site created using PhpGedView
May 1-20, 2005
We continue adding people as information arrives or by joint memory recalls. Shantnu studies what is available for genealogical software - tries various software suits and we converge on some of the tools to use. Concludes that Legacy software permits export to GEDCOM-5.5 format and tools are available to create www site dynamically by just re-loading the gedcom files. The final list of tools we converge: Legacy to create data-base, Ged-Visual and PhpGedView to create static and dynamic content. Shantnu creates a few experimental pages to view output of some of the software programs. R. Manoher experiments with creating written reports and pdf format documents
April 21-30, 2005

April 13-18, 2005
Shantnu joins them in Chicago and rest of week is spent remembering the names, inputting the data and connecting all relatives. Soon we realize that the scope of the data base will encompass all of the Dashora Community. We also decided that Pravin will be the keeper of the data-base. We will individually and collaboratively continue to research and merge our files periodically (say on a monthly basis). By the time we leave Chicago we have about 750 individuals on our data base
April 9-12, 2005
R. Manohar visited Pravin in Chicago. They talk about creating a genealogical chart. They decide to use modern day computer program to create the data base. R. Manohar does essential research to choose Legacy 5.0 as the software to create the data base - acopy is procures and they and start inputting info.
