The Dawe Family Trust was founded by Alan Robert Dawe. Alan created the Dawe Family Trust and this accompanying website to create an archive of Dawe family genealogical data, photos, and heirlooms. Alan passed away in Bali, Indonesia while on a round-the-world trip in 2014. This website will carry on Alan’s memory, his efforts to preserve our family’s history, and serve as a collection point that will chronicle the Dawe family for posterity to understand and enjoy.
