Updating The Family History Book

Welcome to my blog for the Plaisted Family History.  

Depending on who you are and what you have researched; will help the Plaisted Family unite in a new and updated Family History Book which over the next year or two will be re formatted into a proper print edition that will be available online for sale.  Costs as yet unknown.  Proceeds from all sales will be put back into research (Possibly a charity in Arthur H Plaisted's name; who wrote the original book for us all.) so we can find those missing links, be they American, European, Australian , New Zealand or any other country for that matter. Considering how spread out the families are over the world it is going to be quite a challenge.

I will start with the original book.  It is hoped that the book will be turned into at least 4 books so you, the ancestor can buy the relevant one to your family line.

Of course like Arthur H Plaisted I will need assistance in the updates, the mysteries and the true connections which we all hope are out there somewhere just waiting to be found.  I would love you all to participate in this research, adding to the family trees so future generations can continue in years to come.

In the original book there are family trees which I am slowly turning into different trees on a computer program, hoping they will connect somewhere.  (Plaisted Genes are really strong)There are a few really good researcher out there.  Gladys and her daughter in the USA along with Dorothy, Trish and a few others.  In the Australisaian line we have three main researchers with others who have delved into minor lines.  There are two Plaisted lines in NZ and I also think at least two in Australia, with research been done on both.  I know I have missed people out, so lease forgive me as I am doing this from memory.

If you have information which you would like to be included either in the book  (if connection proven) or as an added story at the end then please contact me here on this blog.  I can also be contacted at "Are you a Plaisted" and "Plaisted Publishing House" Groups on Facebook.

I will keep everyone posted on each site.  At this stage it looks like I will be dealing with England and then those who migrated.  First Roger Plaisted who went to America.

If you would like to see history books on various individuals them I will consider it at a future date (unless you want to have a go yourself).  If you can do FTDNA (Family Tree DNA) to help make those connections (Men with Plaisted surname) then it would be much appreciated due to the fact my husband is the only one that I know of who has done so.

Thank you all very much for your support.

Claire Plaisted.
