CRAZY CRATE YOGS 33:  BOOK 5A(damaged, $12) &
5B (new, $15):  1850, 1860, 1870 UNITED STATES CENSUS KEY.  Compiled by Col. Leonard H. Smith, Jr., C. G. AGLL, 1997, 193 pages, medium-weight cardstock wrappers.  Two copies.  See below:
5A.) This first copy has been carelessly handled and the front cover has been folded over and creased.  (5A)This $15 book has, therefore been marked down to $10.  Otherwise it is new. 
5B.) A new copy is available and is priced at $15. Now sale priced at $12.
This volume presents the contents of the microfilm rolls of the censuses of 1850, 1860, and 1870.  It amplifies the data shown in the National Archives listings of contents AND adds the number of the film as assigned by the L,D.S.  They both identify only the county or counties included on each microfilm roll in their publications.  Counties which appear on more than one roll are further identified in this publication as to which subdivisions (towns or counties, etc) appear on which rolls.
Using the Series Number identified at the top of the page and adding the additional numbers as to exactly which roll you are using will properly identify your source for documentation purposes.  Censuses for all three years have been microfilmed twice (Bet you did not know that!).  The second filming on the whole is better than the first.  Since some records were lost or damaged during the time between the two filmings; if material is missing or not readable on the second series, the first filming should be checked.  Many libraries have both series.  If you are a librarian or routinely file film there is much of help in this book.   This first copy (5A), has been carelessly handled and the front cover has been folded over and creased.  We have unfolded it so it is now flat, but still the crease shows.  This $15 book has, therefore been marked down to $10.  A new copy (5B) is available and is priced at $12.
 
CRAZY CRATE YOGS 33:  BOOK 8:  PROCEEDIUNGS OF THE 88TH ASSOCIATE COUNCIL AND NEWSLETTER WITH DIRECTORY, JULY, 1980. NATIONAL SOCIETY UNITED STATES DAUGHTERS OF 1812.VOLUME 57, NUMBER 1.  This society bulletin 169 pages, 5.5 by 8.5 inches, cardstock covers, perfect bound.  This bulletin was full of interesting information about the society and each state had an interesting account of all their works, donations, community service done by these very patriotic ladies.  Interesting newsletter.  Many, many names.  Great value at SALE $1.
 
CRAZY CRATE YOGS 33:  BOOKS 9 THROUGH 23:  These are the highly popular printed 1850 Census Records of various North Carolina Counties.  Since they are all similar in appearance, I will list them only by County, page numbers and price.  This further information about them applies to all of them.  They include laminated covers with a plastic circular binding with the county name in Magic Marker printed on the spine.  Page numbers will differ, see individual count behind name of county.  All are indexed using the page numbers printed  in the upper right hand corner of each CENSUS PAGE, therefore this index may not agree with other indexes using the handwritten numbers.  This is a print-out on white paper of the actual microfilmed copy of the census.  Although they have many of the 1800-1840 censuses done in this fashion; these books listed below feature only the 1850 census which, of course, is the first census to list all members of the household rather than just the head of household and the number of residents grouped by age and sex. 
Having the full information including the age, sex, color of every person plus the State, Territory, or Country of Birth is very helpful in identifying the family as being yours.  All the information through Column 13 is listed on the photocopy exactly as the census-taker wrote it.  Occupation is listed.  Columns for married within the year, attended school within the year, person over 20 years of age who cannot read or write and a column for whether deaf and dumb, blind, insane, idiotic, pauper, or convict are present and are filled in just as the census taker wrote them.  This is the real thing!  You can't buy the roll of microfilm for this much money!  No machine neded, No computer needed, no program knowledge, no looking through 300 pages of names for just your one fellow.
This is a great way to do your census work.  I have seldom found my family all living in the same household in any one county.  That is why the first thing I do when I go to a courthouse is to check marriage records to pick up all the other surnames I need to look for while doing my census work.  While in the courthouse, I visit the office that holds the wills and probates for all those same surnames.  Also, knowing all those surnames before I start the census work makes sure I know who is NOT living in that county any more, and I catch the daughter that married and moved down the road or lives next to her mother-in-law's house! 
Having the entire census book right there, at your fingertips, for the whole county helps you to recognize surnames that lived close to your family and were close friends (or maybe not!)  Sometimes those same surnames appear again in the next places my family moved.  They could be extended family or neighbors that had lived close to the family in their previous homes, too.  Often, but not always, they could be members of the same church or religion giving another tie to be discovered.  The children, almost certainly, went together to the same school if they went at all.
There are about forty-two names appearing on each 17 inch view of half of the numbered page of the census which takes up two actual faces of paper just for the top half, so these are done in landscape style-the top half of the top half of the census page above the spine and the bottom half of the top half of that first page below the spine.
The next full 17 inch view is of the bottom of that entire first census page and is numbered page 1B (for bottom I would guess.) in the index, but is unnumbered in the actual book, both over and under the spine of the book.  This is easier to do than to explain!  Each census line entry is about 3/8 inch high, so the writing is as easy to read as the census taker wrote it.  All books are surname indexed to the census page referenced.  All books have laminated covers and white plastic bindings.  All are in used condition.  If I notice any special flaws, I will mention them.

Thanks for checking out our books.  They, like me, would like to move to a warmer climate, but if you promise to check them faithfully when you get a new surname, they will live at the North Pole.  They just love being useful!!!
 
 
YOGS CRAZY CRATE 34 - Sold Out! Thank you very much. 
 
YOGS CRAZY CRATES:  YOGS 35
 
Hi!  Welcome back to another crate from the shelves of Ye Olde Genealogie Shoppe.  We have added as many shelving units as the shop can hold and as many as will fit into the computer room.  Our little warehouse[half the size of last year's] is brimming over with new books for me to put on these crate sales!  Therefore, we must take desperate measures!
 
You may have noticed our website has not been remodeled in a while.  Thank heavens, you are well versed in calling us with your orders and fortunately have been able to get through to us that way.  [1-800-419-0200-a free call, too!]  We appreciate your calling us to let us know that you want to order these crate books or our regular website items.  Thanks to you, we are still alive in our customer's minds if not always on the internet.  We will be happy to fill your orders, just call us with your information and we will get them right out to you.
 
Modern technology!  I think an old-world expression (ca1940s and World War II Vintage) is appropriate here, and that is SNAFU!!!  For those of you not old enough to recognize this expression, SNAFU stands for Situation Normal-All Fouled Up!  And, my friends, that is where we stand right now. Please excuse our website until I get the time to update it, and, of course I can't get the time until I reach Crazy Crate 75 of this series.  We will just keep on trucking until I have all these crates sold; and then I will put the remainders on the website and then I can update it at the same time.
 

Now, as always, to the books that are cluttering our shelves that need to hold what is currently packed in the van.  Here are some really great values that take up shelf space because the books are outsize; or too small, or are somewhat different in some way, or cover areas of the country that we do not usually stock.  They are about to become some of the best values of the century if you are willing to give them houseroom to help us clear our shelves and, hopefully, to advance your genealogy commensurate with their weight!  They are all excellent books, just not part of what we need to keep for Indiana researchers!
 
OREGON:  CRAZY CRATE YOGS 35:  BOOK 1:  EARLY KLICKITAT VALLEY DAYS.  By Robert Ballou.  The reproduction of this historical book was made possible through the sponsorship of the Klickitat County Historical Society.  No date of either the original or this reproduction were found although Unigraphic, the firm from which I bought the book, has been out-of-business for well over 10 years. 
This book is a collection of very interesting articles written by this author, perhaps for publication in a local newspaper.  The preface is dated Oregon City, Oregon, February 15, 1938.  The author states his work started nearly a half century before writing this, making notes in conversations with pioneers when plenty were still left and active, who had come to Klickitat County and the central Washington region in covered wagons.  In listening to their tales, he says one could almost hear the creaking and groaning of heavy dead axle wagons and the lowing of the cumbersome animals that pulled them along. 
The author laments the passing of the times and the pioneers who worked and traveled their time away and are now gone.  He lists some of those who furnished him with the details of their trip and the early years of their settlement.  We are too late to visit with these great-grandfathers and great-grandmothers who endured the trip to find a new home out west.  You can sure have that experience reading through this book.
He was not pleased with the then current group of county histories and "vanity books", mentioning that a biography cost $18, and, according to him, "were replete with incorrect facts and historical gaps."  
He considers his book to "present a condensed review of outstanding facts in the early history of Klickitat County, blended with a comparison of many features as they are today."  Further details tell us that this gentleman was a blind invalid and the book could not have been accomplished without the patience and tireless energy of his wife, Cora E. (Van Hoy) Ballou who typed his dictation, looked up references and read galley proofs.  She was a pioneer, born five miles southwest of Goldendale on March 24, 1880.
Historical data in his private files was refreshed by contacting pioneers and their descendants in four states and Canada.  Historical societies in five states were consulted.  Standard histories and reference books from the State Library at Salem, Oregon, were used for data about interlocking events. 
 
From the "Opening Story through the Rising Smoke, Hidden Empire, Ox Team County Officials, Fred Gerling, First U. S. Mails. Pony Express, Range Cattle, Horses & Sheep, to Goldendale, Railroads Arrive, Indian Troubles, First Happenings, Covered Wagon Trails, Crime Stories, Frontier Features, Indian Legends, Corral Dust Yarns, Primitive Ignorance, Frontier Wild Life to Frontier Day Sports, the Bridge of the Gods, Keeping Trail Fires Blazing and a few of the Prominent Klickitat Pioneers; this book snatches you right out of your easy chair and plunks you down right smack-dab into :The Old West."  The world is better off for this book having been written.  When you finish it, indeed, you will understand what it was like to have been a part of "The Old West."  Original price was $30.  Now, SALE priced at $20 each.  Two NEW copies are available at $20 each.
 
CALIFORNIA:  CRAZY CRATE YOGS 35:  BOOK 9:THE GOLDEN BOOK OF CALIFORNIA.  1860 - 1936. Edited by Robert Sibley.  Published by the California Alumni Association - 1937.  This is a record of the first seventy-five years in the life of the University of California, containing an alphabetical and a geographical listing of the names, known addresses, occupations, and classes of every person who has ever enrolled and received credit on any of the several campuses of the University, together with a pictorial portrayal of the growth of the University and of its present campuses and of the work which is being done by its faculty members.  This book was printed in 1937 the same year I was born.  It is in much better shape, looks new, than I am, but I have learned a great deal in my almost 70 years on this planet, whereas the book has not changed at all.  So to check with the present, call me; but to check with the past as it was perceived then, check with this book!  In checking my Van Treese name, I find three:  Van Trease, Pattie with a note:  See Mrs. Russell M. Freeman:  Van Tress, Charles D. Live Oak and Van Tress, Kenneth I., Live Oak.  However, there are no Gooldys.  The book is beautiful.  Probably cost $50 when new, on sale now for $20.  Name on bottom of front cover Una L. McBean in gold.  You should have this if she is one of your ancestors! Sale Price $20
 
MISSOURI:  CRAZY CRATE YOGS 35:  BOOK 11 & 12:  SURNAMES OF INTEREST TO REGISTRANTS, 30TH Annual Fair, Armchair Research, St. Louis Genealogical Society, 2000.  This information for this 12 page book was submitted by attendees planning to attend the big conference St. Louis has every year.  At the fair, this booklet is available to registrants to see if another person attending may be a cousin or researching a collateral line or may have a common interest.  The name of the surname in which the person who submitted it is interested, then their surname and first name, then their address to facilitate exchange of lineage charts and family group sheets with city, state and zip code are included.  Very helpful.  This is bundled with the same item for 2003, done the same way, but 29 pages this time.   Special value.  Buy both for $10.  SALE Both for $6
 
Thanks for sticking with me through this.  Pat from YOGS
