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.

Museum of London Ipod App

The Museum of London has got a free app for Iphones, etc. You can read about it here.

It has a map of London where you can click on different locations to see photos of how they looked in the past and read about them, and if you have an Iphone you can hold the camera up to an actual street in London and it gives you historical information about it. I’ve only got an Ipod Touch so I haven’t tested this part of it but the map bit is great.

You can download it from Itunes by searching for Streetmuseum, or directly via the App Store on your device.

Wonder if other regional archive offices would consider making something similar?
