Surname Saturday: PLAINE

PLAINE is the surname of my great-grandmother and mother of my maternal grandmother. She died when my grandmother was only seven years old, and her ancestors lived in workhouses in England, so once again, there were some similarities between my family and the latest episode of Who Do You Think You Are? Rosie O'Donnell's mother died when she was ten years old, and her ancestors lived in workhouses in Ireland.
