- Don't try searching for just Pluck or Pluckrose.
This site is full of them.
- Enclosing a name in quotes will reduce the number of hits that you
get. For example:
- John Pluck will give 76 hits (at the time of writing)
- "John Pluck" will reduce the number to a more manageable 30 hits.
- Emma Pluckrose will produce 15 hits, and
- "Emma Pluckrose" will
reduce this to just two.
- The Search Results page provides a link to some additional "search tips".
- The best method of finding someone with a common name, John Pluck for
example, is to download
a csv file which lists the names of everyone mentioned on
this site, together with their date of birth, the number of the Tree
that they can be found in and their PL number. You can load this file
into Excel (or whatever spreadsheet manager you use), and sort the data
as you wish.
- Everyone has a PL number and you can use this to search. Remove the PL before you do this because the number may occur in a table where the preceding PL is not used.
- Both PDF and TreeDraw format tree files are fully searchable.
- Another useful search method, if you have an ancestor who was alive
at the time of the 1901 census, is to go to the Census
section and look in the two tables there which list Plucks
and Pluckroses who were alive at that time together with their unique
PL numbers and a note of the Tree in which they can be found.
- If you still can't find your ancestor then send me an email. I have
a big database and only part of it is on this website. I need to know
your ancestor's name, their date of birth (if it is a guess, then tell
me), and their place of birth. Anything else such as a marriage or a
death (again with dates), and where they lived, could all be useful.
