This is a test
This is a temporary home for the family site, tagged at the beginning of my redundant personal billplummer.net site. It will have a stand alone space once I purchase a domain.
The intention of Plumlines is provide a platform where all of us can keep up to date within the family by exchanging information, photos, family history or just about anything related to each of our particular branches of the family.
Obviously, nothing beats meeting up and socialising but who knows, perhaps we could be teased into keeping in touch better (I hold my hand up here!) as a result of viewing the site.
Plumlines is running in parallel with the Plumlines site which is specifically dedicated to our genealogy. As time goes on, I hope that there will be more cross-pollination between the sites, historic pictures and relevant information being uploaded to both of them.
I will be expanding Plumlines to include a section (a page or pages) to each Lineage and each branch of our families. This will take some time and also it will require lots more information and photographic material, more will be revealed.
I have done absolutely no research about the Plummer Family per se, in terms of a generic history. I have only concentrated on our immediate ancestors and descendants, using the bits and pieces gleaned from relatives I have spoken to and from paperwork found amongst my immediate family.
Luckily I was able to rely on Bert Enright (the son of Amy who was an aunt of my Pop) who was doing research of his own for years and he was very supportive, providing so much information and copies of ancient photographs.
I realised that, due to the nature of things, there would be more than enough in this to keep all of us interested here for quite a while, without delving further back than my generations’ grandparents, my starting point as the earliest ancestor was William Frederick Plummer.
Then, it became obvious that it would be fascinating to find out more. For now, though, I only went as far as my granddad’s dad (WFP), though as you will discover, we since realised that we have more earlier histories to share. Not knowing about William Frederick lead to many questions, some of the answers to which only arrived here last week with some early Census information that Shirley Bennet (née Plummer) had researched.
