I have thousands of Dones to add from the English and Welsh Done families and would love to be able to cross check people who may be entered as Doane etc only because they had later Doane descendants in the USA. All the Dones I know of who left the UK for the USA are spelled "Done". Most had their names altered to Doan/e shortly after arrival. I believe a variety of factors lead to the "new" spelling but mostly the different pronunciations to try to distinguish the name from Dunn and Don. I don't want to add Dones and then find they are already here as Doan/e.
