Newsletter Subtitle: BRING YOUR BOOTS! WE ARE OFF TO NEW ENGLAND
THEY HAVE MORE SNOW THAN MOST OF US DO!
Month Day Year: JANUARY 20, 2011
JP68 Crazy Crate JP 68: Friday, January 21, 2011.
Hello everyone! Did you bring your boots? We are going to New England with this crate, and they are getting a lot of snow this winter along with a good part of the rest of this country! When you look at the earthquakes, the volcanoes erupting, the mudslides wiping out entire villages, the forest fires, the massive floods, I think we should be happy to settle for a snowstorm or two! Somebody should talk to Father Time and Mother Nature about the horrible times so many of our fellow world travelers are having. We are very fortunate to live where we do!

CT - CRAZY CRATE JP 68 BOOK 3: ORANGE, [CONNECTICUT]. By Harry W. Jones and Marvin A. Jamron. Dover, NH: Arcadia Publishing. First published 1998. 128 pages. Softcover.(Part of the Images of America Series). Note there are several small creases on the back cover and two that run from the top to the bottom of the front cover, apparently made when people were reading
through the book. The history of Orange, Connecticut, can be traced to 1639 when the Reverend Peter Prudden and a group of his followers from Wethersfield Colony founded a settlement in this remarkable area. Separated from Milford and incorporated in 1822, the town was named after William of Orange in gratitude for his assistance to early American colonists. In its early years the town was a rural farm community and remained so until after World War II. Many of the families who reside in town are descendants of the earliest European settlers. These families have
been instrumental in preserving the charm of an open-space, rural community whose spirit remains refreshing. In the over 200 photographs included
in this book are the faces from many generations and time periods. Price: $10.00 (This book was originally published at $17.00 but we are selling it to you at only $10.00 because of its condition).

This is a great crate, full of well-documented evidence on those far-back ancestors we have that are so hard to trace. Just any one, or more, of
these articles could have much of interest concerning your New England ancestry. Sometimes it just takes the correction or connection of one thread to unravel a new or different branch of your Family Tree. Sometimes the evidence we need is buried so deeply in the past until that one little thread is found and proven by someone living closer to the area in which that family lived in an obscure reference that has just been located or unearthed in a file or a box no one had ever cared enough to uncover, or peruse before now. When the contents are published, many people have their !ah-ha!] moment when they make a new connection they had not been aware of being in print before, because it never had been!
In genealogy one of the words we cherish is "Serendipity" [The faculty of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for!] That means you found something wonderful while you were looking for something else! This is the word for finding two families in a book when you had only been looking for one, both of which turn out to be related to you.
If you have had a Serendipity Moment and would like to share it with others, please write it down on an e-mail to me and we will publish some of them on our newsletter, thus making it available on the huge search engines, so others may have their Serendipity moment also! Cousins are all over the world! Maybe we could find a Serendipity moment for you! John and Pat from YOGS
