Genealogy has finally made the headlines!  The New England Historic Genealogy Society has said that their research has shown that Richard Singletary of Haverhill, Massachusetts, who died in 1687, at the advanced age of 102, is one of the ancestors of Barach Obama on his mother's side (Stanley Ann Dunham) and the newly-elected senator, Scott Brown from the state of Massachusetts, is also descended from that same Richard Singletary through his mother (Judith Ann Rugg).  Mr. Brown and Mr. Obama are, according to these researchers, 10th cousins. 
 
President Obama is also related to seven other Presidents of the United States, including the one he just followed into office, George W. Bush.  He may also be related to Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton.
 
David Allen Lambert co-discovered the connection with Chris Child, according to the Indianapolis, Indiana Star, in this Sunday's paper.

We are now ready to tackle this FF crate #10, and we are continuing with more books in this crate concerning different Pennsylvania materials.  By the way, in case you are interested, [and who is not interested in saving money?], many of these books are priced at $10 and less!  It does not cost much to stay home and read!  You can wind up both smarter and richer [or at least less poor] than you would have been if you had driven to a far-off place!
 
WRITING FOR GENEALOGISTS  - CRAZY CRATE FF10:  BOOK 1 - C054A  GENEALOGICAL WRITING IN THE 21ST CENTURY.  A GUIDE TO THE REGISTER STYLE AND MORE.  By Henry B. Hoff, Editor.  Published by the New England Historic Genealogical Society.  55 pages, 5.5 by 8.5 inches, softbound, laminated covers, wrappers.  For the person who has decided to organize and write up the information they have found in researching for years, STOP.  Read this book first before you do anything else!  This book gently leads you through the process of turning your research into a book for you and your family, present and past, in which they may justly take pride!   
General advice about writing and style comes first.  Then, the author gives you samples or guidelines on how to write, showing you the standards of documentation and style necessary to meet the definition of good research and good writing.  Articles follow, such as: How to Craft a Good Article, which could explore a small section of your ancestry that can later be a chapter in your book, when it is finished. Perhaps you can also read up on how to submit your article for their magazine, New England Ancestors, or for other popular genealogical magazines.  The next chapter tells you How to Write for the Internet, such as New England Ancestors.org and other websites.  The last chapter gives you even more hints and tips to use as you finally put it all together in a book to cherish and to share with friends and family.  Especially helpful is the list of acronyms and abbreviations listed.  The index is really helpful for quickly searching all these good ideas!  PRICE:  $14
 
PENNSYLVANIA - CRAZY CRATE FF10:  BOOK 2:  PENNSYLVANIA, HER COUNTIES, HER TOWNSHIPS, HER TOWNS.  The Researchers.  ©1980.  29 pages, 8.5 by 11 inches.  Bright yellow cardstock cover.  Stapled.    This book is your answer to the question,  'I know it is in Pennsylvania, but where in Pennsylvania is that town?  Where do I write for my ancestor's vital records?
For genealogists who always want to know what county everything is in, this book is every bit as useful now as it was when it was first created.  The first map is a county outline map of Pennsylvania from 1780 with these 11 counties in the outline drawing:  [NOTE:  About
¼ of Pennsylvania in the upper west corner was not included in any county until April 8, 1785.  Going from west to east, starting in the bottom west county:  Westmoreland, Bedford, and then you must go north up to Northumberland.  Then straight across the bottom western and southern borders are Cumberland, York, Lancaster, Chester, Philadelphia and Bucks.  North at an angle east of Lancaster are Berks and Northampton Counties.

 
The next map shows Pennsylvania in 1790.  On this map we now see the shapes of the 21 counties listed here that existed in 1790.  The top tier, touching the northern border, going west to east, contains four counties:  Allegheny, Northumberland, Luzerne and Northampton.  The bottom tier, all of which are touching the southernmost state line, are ten in number: Washington, Fayette, Bedford, Franklin, York, Lancaster, Chester, Delaware, Philadelphia and Bucks.  Sandwiched in between these two lines of counties are the seven counties that do not touch the top (north) state line or the bottom (south) state line: Westmoreland, Huntingdon, Mifflin, Cumberland, Dauphin and Berks.  This set also includes Montgomery County, being south of Berks, east of Bucks, north of Philadelphia and west of Chester and it touches none of the outside borders of Pennsylvania.  A couple of maps and all THAT ABOVE will become clear!  And those maps are in this book!
 
The next page reveals all of Pennsylvania's Counties as of the date of this book - 1980.  In the next part of this book, each county of this state is laid out in an individually-outlined form with all the townships drawn in properly and well labeled with the year the county was created and its parent county or counties.  The county seat is marked and identified with its zip code, so you have what you need to write the courthouse for proper documentation! 
 
But you have not reached the best part yet!  At the back of the book on thirteen pages done in three column format, [holding over 240 names of towns on each page] there are identified many of this state's towns AND the county that keeps its genealogical records!  Now you know exactly where to write for your ancestor's records!  The township maps help you locate in what part of the county they lived.  Maybe, when you get an old deed record?  I reach for these books regularly when I am researching.  They are really useful!  She has done several states beside Pennsylvania, also.  PRICE: $7
 
You just never know what you are going to find in one of these crates, do you?  It is so much fun to write them, because I get to see all the books first!  Yes, I admit it, I check the indexes for all Gooldy and Van Treese names I can find!
 
PENNSYLVANIA -  CRAZY CRATE FF10:  BOOK 7-B237:  CUMBERLAND COUNTY, (PA), OATHS OF ALLEGIANCE, 1761, 1777-1778.  By Gloria Aertker Fralish.  ©1984.  I found this very interesting, mainly because she starts with a typed copy of the actual Oaths of Allegiance and Supremacy.  I wouldn't sign that today!  25 pages, cardstock covers, stapled, indexed.  The surname of the person having only one first name in this list was not abstracted. The following surnames appear in this extract with the number of persons or pages behind the name:  Adair 4, Alexander 3, Allison 2, Anderson 4, Armstrong 5, Baker 2, Bell 3, Boon 2, Boyd 4, Brooks 2, Brown 5, Burchfield 2, Byers 2, Car(o/u)thers [This means I found the name spelled Carothers or Caruthers] 3, Clark 4, Cl(ou/ow)ser/ Gl(ou/ow)ser 2, Cochran 4, Cowan 2, Creigh 2, Culbertson 2, Curry, David 4, Davidson 3, Davis 4, Davison 2, Denny 2, Dickson 4, Donaldson 2, Douglass 2, Dunning 2, Fisher 2, Fleeming 2, Galbreath 3, Gibson 3, Glen 3, Gordon 2, G(ou/ow)die 2, Graham 5, Gray 2, Gregg 3, Hamilton 3 spellings.

PENNSYLVANIA -  CRAZY CRATE FF10:  BOOK 12 B-211A and BOOK 13 B211B.  EVERY NAME INDEX TO THE HISTORY OF THE NEWSPAPERS OF BEAVER COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA.  [2 copies total], 17 pages, 8.5 by 11 inches, cardstock covers, plastic circular binder in punched holes.  Compiled by Nancy B. Foster.  ©1993.  From the preface by the author.  Several years ago she found the book, History of the Newspapers of Beaver County, PA, by Francis E. Reeder, (published in 1905) in a second hand bookstore.  As some of her ancestors were in Beaver County for a short time and the book was only 50¢, she felt it was worth purchasing. She was pleased to find a great deal of genealogical data in this book on the men who published and edited the newspapers in the area beginning with "The Minerva" in 1808.  Nothing on her family, however! 

This book can be found on the OnLine Computer Library Center, so you can check to see if a library near you might have it!   (OCLC) covers at least 14 libraries in 6 states.  All are listed in the book.  Three columns per page, 16 people per page.  If yours were in Beaver County, PA, they just may be in this book!  We have two copies of this book.  Condition of both is the same.  They are new.  PRICE: $4

FF11 - We are going to visit the state of Connecticut in these next
crates.  I have only been to that wonderful state once for a genealogy conference.  Writing down memories adds life to your genealogy, and even though you may not use them in your finished book; your kids and grandkids will appreciate the time you took to share some special memories with them.  This is one reason why I am so grateful for the present hobby of scrap-booking which also helps to preserve those "special moments" when you realize that life is really good and worth "putting your best foot forward" for those living with you or those whose lives touch yours!!

 
As a great grandmother, I realize that each generation has some "special moments" when life is real and life is earnest and life is just plain fun!  Preserve them for yourself to leaf through when you are old and graying, so you can remember the times when you were young and making those special moments!  If you can remember them and share them with your family, they will gain special insights into the times that really do make life good!  They will also get little lessons in how to relish the "special moments" when lifelong memories get made!  The making of them is a wonderful blessing; the remembering of them is one of life's blessings when we get on the shady side of 70!  Many of us have, and hopefully, many of those who are reading this will eventually reach that age [if you haven't already!

Hi there!  Thanks for reading our crazy crate newsletter today.  We have some books from Massachusetts on the menu today, so take a look at these books on the list today. 
 
My grandmother was a wise woman and often told me, "Remember, Pat, paper will stand still for anything to be written upon it, so don't believe anything you read without further proof!"  Then she would smile and add, "Remember that the "proof" is written on paper, too."
 
FF14:  CRAZY CRATE FF14:  BOOK 2:  A SURNAME GUIDE TO MASSACHUSETTS TOWN HISTORIES.   By Phyllis O. Longver and Pauline J. Oesterlin.  Published by Heritage Books, Inc.  ©1993.  425 pages, softbound, wrappers.  Given a surname, and there are over 14.000 in this volume and over 56,000 citations to the 128 volumes of Massachusetts histories that have been collected and indexed here.  This book has been needed since genealogy was first begun and these town histories were first written.  Many of these town histories contain genealogies and biographies of great interest to us IF we simply knew which ones our ancestral lines were in and where we could find the books to read them.  A volume-by-volume search of all of them could take a lifetime.  This is a master guide to the surnames found in 128 volumes of Massachusetts town histories.  Each town name is associated with a code number which identifies the history .  What a wonderful finding aid to use to find the siblings of your ancestor when they moved out of the hometown.  The book is alphabetically arranged by surname.  PRICE: $35 and worth every penny of it in saved time and money.
 
14:  CRAZY CRATE FF14:  BOOK 3A & 3B:  CHRONICLES OF OLD SALEM, MASSACHUSETTS.  By Frances Diane Robotti.  Foreword by Russell Leigh Jackson.  Subtitle:  A History in Miniature.  Bonanza Books, ©1948.  129 pages, 5.5 by 8.5 inches, hardbound, book jacket, $10.  Here is covered the colonial expansion of England during which Massachusetts was founded.  The growth of Salem from 1626 to 1932 is shown against the state and national scene.  The author traces the history of witchcraft from 1484, when a Papal decree made it a crime, to Salem's participation in the mass madness.  The book covers the Quaker whippings, the military disaster of King Phillip's War for Indian or white survival, the privateering years in which Salem became so great a sea power that Salem meant America in exotic ports of the world.  Comprehensive in scope, the book is authenticated by leading scholars in America and England, contains a bibliography, index, addendum and is illustrated with twenty-eight selections from the Essex Institute Art Collections of woodcuts and portraits which are scattered throughout.  PRICE:  $10 Each. Two copies are available!
 
FF14:  CRAZY CRATE FF14:  BOOK 4:  THE GUARDIANS OF THE NEW WORLD.  By Doris H. Wackerbarth.  278 pages, softbound, wrappers, ©1980.  Signed by the author.  In 1630, John Winthrop led a Great Migration of over 3,000 souls westward across the Atlantic to establish a new England.  The Massachusetts Bay Company, unlike the lonely band of near martyrs of the Mayflower Plymouth Company who had come ten years before, was not off-course nor was it of one mind.  Indeed, some members never agreed with anyone.
Winthrop's Puritan company were political refugees.  The leaders were men of estate, and the majority were businessmen, tradesmen and freeholders; many had left Old England without permission; the dependent families and single men and women passengers were chosen for the contribution they could make in the new undertaking.  From the first, dissenters struck out in every direction seeking like-minds.
In 1675, Hadley, on the Connecticut River, was a pre-planned community, the third fresh start for its chief engagers.  When King Phillip's War began, they had been secretly and treasonously sheltering in their midst, for eleven years, a pair of old political allies with a price on their heads.  They had retreated from not-so-safe-keeping in Milford and New Haven.  The Guardians is the story of the pioneer-settler protectors of two Judges of Charles I, friends who sheltered them at the time New England was coming of age.  The Guardians is a stirring account of the settlers who came to the wilderness of the New World in an effort to preserve representative government, and their struggle to prevent their established governments from being corrupted by absolute power.  Wonderfilly instructive about our early history.  PRICE: $18
