Welcome to Liz’s family history blog!

Hello! My name's Liz Plummer and I have a textile arts blog over at Dreaming Spirals. I have recently got into family history research and so I decided to start a blog about it, talking about my discoveries and journey along the way. Feel free to leave a comment, especially if you are also researching any of the same surnames.

Most of my ancestors lived in Staffordshire and the West Midlands in the UK; a few wandered over from Cheshire and perhaps Shropshire. The main surnames I'm researching are: Docksey, Meredith, Hopkins, Simpson, Cooke, Swetmore, Lunn, Cooper. I'll put a full list further down the sidebar.

Hello and welcome....

… to my new genealogy blog.  I decided to use this as a way to connect with other people researching the same ancestors as myself.

I am fairly new to family history but my family tree isn’t.  My aunt started researching our family tree back in the 60s or 70s, and my parents and brother have continued; I only got bitten by the family detective bug a couple of years ago but am making up for it with enthusiasm!

I live in South Wales, but nearly all my ancestors lived in Staffordshire, the West Midlands or Cheshire, with a few cousins moving to Yorkshire or Lancashire or even to the US or Australia.  But most of my focus is on the Midlands of the UK.

I’m not quite sure at present which direction this blog will take but I hope it will find an interested audience in the blogoshere!
