your input is always appreciated.
Yes, now that I'm delving deeper into the family tree I have discovered a few inconsistencies with the trees on Ancestry. Its to easy to link to a mistake and have that sitting there. My hope was that the message would be read by somebody who has done research via the primary documents.
It would make sense that a shipbuilder called Plummer in Launceston would be related to the Plummer shipbuilding family, but without looking at the indexes or primary documents, I couldn't be absolutely sure. Truth be told I didn't check the Colonial Tasmanian Family Links in the first place. Ive been bitten before with people living in the same city, with the same name, but being different people.
Ive been going through Trove over the last few months with great success and am starting to build a picture of Launceston in the late 1800's. Particularly the shipping community.Yes there's is a wealth of information on the Plummers, particularly in 1954:http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article27242980
Now that I am happy I have a concrete connection, I'll continue.
