Contact: Mr Robert Plumridge
My name is Robert (Bob) Plumridge, I have been working on my Plumridge line for well over 20 years now and thought I'd like to have a go at a ONS.
I picked Greenleaf as it was my maternal Grandmothers surname and growing up I knew many Grand Uncles, Aunts and cousins with the Greenleaf surname.
Progress is slow as I am learning as I go but progress is being made.
So far I have only looked at UK records.
I have now done a DNA test with Ancestry.
I have now, with help, transcribed all the Greenleaf entries from the GRO indexes for Birth, Marriages and Deaths, I have also used FreeBMD and FMP for this.
I have also transcribed all the Greenleaf entries in the 1939 register, using FMP.
I am now working on all the Greenleaf entries in the 1841 census and intending to work my way through to the 1911 census.
