YE OLDE GENEALOGIE SHOPPE PROUDLY PRESENTS THIS TWICE
WEEKLY NEWSLETTER FOR FRIDAY, FEB. 19, 2010:
Weather in Indiana in the winter can be unpredictable! Since this is
now a one-person operation, we must change our open hours to:
By Appointment or by Chance only! I am generally here from 10:00 to
5:00 Monday through Saturday, but the shop cannot be open when I
am not there, so please call me before you come!
As always a post office run and a bank run may be scheduled between
3 and 5 in the afternoon when needed. So, please call before you
come. Right now you need hip boots to get through the snow, the
conditions of the driveway may not permit visitors, bit I will be happy
to take your order and ship your items to you.
I will be happy to open the shop for you when you get here, if I can
get there to do so!
We have had some really wicked cold winds so far this winter, and I
must admit going out into them is not my favorite thing to do either.
so, for the time being, I am going to stay close to home and write
newsletters and try to stay warm.
[When I first wrote this I had no idea I was going to be snowbound
without a way to get to my car, or even to get out of the back door,
or get to the shop because of drifting snow for twelve solid days.]
It is a good thing I had stopped at the grocery store the night before
the first snow began.]
Call 1-800-419-0200 if I can help you with your genealogy. Check out
our "Genealogical Goodies" and our "Forms and Charts" section of
our website for other possibilities. For this newsletter I have tried to
think of possible books that would be welcomed by practically anyone
with a genealogical interest + some for those who have a special
interest in Ohio counties.
First in line would be one of our best selling items - that, of course, is
our pretty and practical mini-binders. Literally thousands of people
carry these to the library with them because of their easy-to-carry
5 1/2 " by 7" size, and their big 6 3/4" by 13" size of the two-sided
forms which fold in twice to take up so little space.
The binders are six-ring, vinyl covered mini-binders beautifully
printed with a pretty (some trees and titles are black, some are gold)
and the words "Our Family Tree" in script which hold enough forms
to do almost five generations of ancestors (30 of them)
and lineage charts (10 of these) that each run a full six g
generations of coverage! There are also five blank
tabbed dividers awaiting your surnames to separate your families.
Binders come in Tuxedo Black, Pretty Parchment Tan, Pecan Brown,
Kelly Green (especially nice for your Irish lines,), Candy Apple Red
and Marine Blue! PRICE: $20 each.
Extra family-group sheets and lineage charts are always available.
Other filler sheets for the mini-binders are also available. Check out
our MINI-BINDERS section on our home page. These fillers are
almost always readily available. They come in packs of ten for $4
and can be ordered by phone at 1-800-419-0200. Extra divider packs
and census kits are ready to send, and a sample kit of six kinds of
charts [for the information, but not the bulk,] to be found on
Deeds (LB6), Wills (LB7), or Military Service Records (LB8). Forms
on which you may copy information found in Obituaries Record
Forms (LB 9), Cemetery Record Forms (LB 10) and Funeral Home
Record Forms (LB 11) are a part of the
Sample Kit also, for the things you find in those places in which you
may not be able to, or allowed to, copy on a copier at the site where
you find the documents. Check out our website for other details and
to order on line. Or just call Pat at 1-800-419-0200.
We also carry a lovely line of binders for the 8½" by 11" forms that
are so popular. Priced at $25, these softly padded big 3" deep
binders, with lifters to keep your pages unruffled, make a lovely
beautiful spot on a coffee table or desktop. Check out our website
to see the 8½" by 11" forms that fit these big binders. The binders
are available in white, black, tan, dark brown, navy blue, plum and
gray as long as they last!
Genealogy is a lot of hard work, sifting through the websites to
establish the true story of the people who occupied this world's
space before we were even a gleam in anybody's eyes! If we have
found the truth, we owe it to our descendants; and when we have
found it, to flaunt it, just a little, so it won't be lost.
We also have very nice six-generation wall charts 24" by 30", printed
in black in lineage style with room for dates and places on lovely
cream paper, trimmed with green leafy vines. It can hang neatly
framed, right above your work desk, so a glance upward will remind
you of the dates and places that we need to remember in order to do
this job right!
For the optimists among us, we also have two-sided twelve and
fifteen generation charts (9 generations on the front plus extensions
of selected additional generations on the back.) These would be
appreciated by all our descendants, especially if we can find the
time to, at least partially, fill them in before we give them away!
They won't break the bank either at $2 each.
Other books which may be enjoyed by any genealogist are available
on our website also. Here are a few from the FF collection of gently
used books. All are used, marked with a location and book number
Then if the book is loaned out, the sticker would remind the
borrower to return the book to the book's rightful owner!!
There is a lot of variety in today's books, so be sure you look at all
ENGLAND - FF21: CRAZY CRATE FF21: BOOK 1: C035: EVERYONE
HAS ROOTS, AN INTRODUCTION TO ENGLISH GENEALOGY. By
Anthony J. Camp. Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., Baltimore, Md.,
1978. For those searching for their English Roots, this book is
perfect. It was designed to instruct the beginner in the use of
British Records. It describes their origins and the present-day
applications. It treats virtually all facets of research, discussing
records, methods and principles, books and archives, adventures

ENGLAND - FF21: CRAZY CRATE FF21 BOOK 2: THE OXFORD
GUIDE TO FAMILY HISTORY. By David TO TO FAMILY HISTORY
by David Hey, Oxford University Press, 1993.
246 pages, hard cover, dust jacket, very good condition. It has
location number and price in pencil, inside book. Like-New condition.
This book is essential reading for anyone wishing to find out more
about his or her English ancestors. Written by a leading expert on
family history, it offers authoritative advice on tracing your family
tree and suggests ways of broadening your research to look at what
life was like for ordinary people down through the centuries. There
are over 100 illustrations, in color and black and white, from Family
photographs to archive records and family trees.
This is not just another guide to the mechanics of constructing a
family tree. This author shows you how to go beyond that and
discover the reality of your ancestor's lives. Who were they? Where
did they live? How did they earn their living? Genealogy is often
just a collection of birth dates, marriage dates and death dates.
Family History is much more than that. The work of social historians
is of great importance, whether dealing with the size of families,
the ages at which people married, or the mobility of the population.
Many aspects of social history are relevant to family history research
and they suggest lines of inquiry that may be followed with profit
and enjoyment by family historians. This book is full of guidance on
the basics of research to enrich the dates on your family tree with
information on how they lived instead of just when and where.
There are chapters on The Family Name, Mobility and Stability, Family
and Society, and A Guide to the Records. Add some detail with
pictures of your family's houses, their churches, where they shopped,
etc. This book would add lots of detail to your genealogy. PRICE:

FF21: CRAZY CRATE 21: BOOK SET 6: D021: HISTORY OF OHIO By
Charles B. Galbreath, Secretary of the Ohio State Archaeological and
Historical Society, Former State Librarian and Secretary of the Ohio
for a special gift for that special genealogist, this is a rare set of
books about Ohio that will be the pride and joy of any genealogist
lucky enough to find it under their tree Christmas morning.] With
emphasis on the Historical and Biographical Aspects. In three
volumes, An original, matched set in fairly good shape for their age
as they are eighty years old. Covers have an occasional bumped
corner, but books are neat and well bound. No covers are loose.
Printed by the American Historical Society, Inc. in 1928. Volume I
covers the geological formation of the state, flood control,
Conspiracy of Pontiac, Treaty of Paris, The Ordinance of 1787, the
Northwest Territory Years, Treaty of Greenville, How and When(?)
Ohio became a state [Ohio voted in 1803, Congress failed to
admit the state of Ohio to the Union, did not officially recognize
it for over one hundred years, but it clearly did function as a state
during that period. The evidence is that during that time ten
Presidents were elected, seven of which were born in Ohio.
And of five Chief Justices of the U. S. chosen during that time
three were appointed from Ohio. This controversy as to its date of
admission continues as there are five separate dates which, in some
important document, represent the birth of the State of Ohio.
[Leave it to a Legislature, Executive Branch or Judicial System to
"mess up" and when they all have a say in it, you can be sure they
will NOT agree.] March 1, 1803, is the commonly accepted date.
Then the county information follows for each of the of counties,
The county sketches, and all 88 of them are covered in detail, give
you a lot of information. You get the census figures from 1920, the
farm reports as to crops grown and bushels harvested, size of farms,
etc. Maps abound, parent counties are named, county officers are
named, little hamlets to small towns to large cities are identified.
You will find out where they came up with the county's name, what
the soil is like, what minerals are present, the area in square miles,
the name of all the townships, what kind of population settled here,
who came first, what groups, if any, settled here, where they c
furnished lots of data about how many dairy cows, bushels of
potatoes, tons of hay, average farm size and lots more. In Licking
County, they mention the "Refugee Tract" [100,000 acres] where
some Canadians who supported the Americans during the
Revolutionary War were relocated with the awards of property given
by our Government to former residents of the British Provinces in
Canada whose lands were confiscated in Canada, and then they were
told to leave. They came to America, many served in the war on our
side and were rewarded with from 160 acres to 2,240 acres in
Franklin, Licking and Perry Counties. They talk about the Ohio Canal
which runs through Licking County. This sketch covers farms, what
they grew, how many bushels, etc. and manufacturing shops and
what they made. They mention the Drummer Boy of Shiloh and
Chickamauga, Johnny Clem, the smallest person ever enlisted in any
army, who was born in Newark in 1851, and ran away to enlist in the
Union Army in the Civil War. They mention the "Mound Builders
and their works" as the tourist attraction it still is today. These
sketches tell you much of the early history of that county. Articles on
the Public Schools, Newspapers, The War of 1812, Mexican War, Civil
War and Spanish American War are all covered in Volume I. A large
38-page index, which covers the entire set, comes at the FRONT of
Volume II covers the Constitution of Ohio and the three conventions
that hammered out the final form by 1912. Slavery and Anti-slavery
forces are discussed in Volume II. The Temperance Movement, the
Women's Suffrage Movement, The Grange, The Annals of Ohio
Administrations and a Chapter on Eminent Ohioans concludes the
Volume III contains the biographical part of this history. Beginning
with John Walworth and his family, there are biographies and family
histories, portraits, and genealogical information stunning in its
details. [Sample] In the sketch of John Gallagher, the first page is
of his background, his 47 trips to Europe, his wholesale liqu
"September 12, 1873, John Gallagher married Rose Kennedy,
daughter of Bernard and Elizabeth Kennedy of Letterkenny, Donegal
County, Ireland. Children: 1. Patrick, living in Warren County, Ohio.
2. Elizabeth, wife of Christopher William Deibel, manager of the
Liberty Theatre in Youngstown by whom she has children: John C.,
born in 1903; Dorothy Mary, born in 1905; Ellen Elizabeth, born in
1907; Rosemary, born in 1909; Chrtistopher, Jr., born in 1918, died
in 1926. 3. Mary, wife of Emil A. Renner, realtor, by whom she has
children: George J. 4th, born in 1907; John A., born 1909; William
W. born 1911; Robert J. born 1913; and E. Arthur, Jr., born 1917.
On January 6, 1924, at the age of seventy-nine, Mr. Gallagher passed
on to the highest reward which awaited one of his genuine goodness
and exemplary life. He left behind a sorrowing family and many
friends who appreciated his sterling worth to his community.

BOOK 5: D015: CUYAHOGA COUNTY 1852 LANDOWNERSHIP
MAP INDEX. Indexed and published by the Greater Cleveland
Genealogical Society, June 1, 1975. Bi-Centennial Project, 104
8 ½ " by 11" pages printed on 11" by 17" paper and folded with
cardstock covers, stapled. The forward has an excellent description
of the background of this area explaining the Connecticut Western
Reserve of 3 million acres of land in the northeastern part of what
became the state of Ohio, extending 120 miles from east (PA) to
west (Sanduskey and Seneca Counties, [OH]) on the west with Lake
Erie as its northern border and the 41st parallel to the south, a
distance of roughly 50 miles. Cuyahoga County was formed in 1810.
The land owners of the city of Cleveland do not appear on the
original, therefore, they are not a part of this index. The landowner's
maps for the county around the city are reproduced at the back of
this index, so you will be able to check the neighbors of your
ancestors. The people of this period  did not travel far from
home, so they often did marry "the girl next door or across the
street." The 86 page index is too long to abstract here. Price $25.
DELAWARE COUNTY, OHIO - CRAZY CRATE FF25: BOOK 9: D069:
TOMBSTONES INSCRIPTIONS AND OTHER RECORDS OF DELAWARE
COUNTY, OHIO. Including Portions of Morrow and Monroe Counties.
By Esther Weygant Powell. ©1972, 448 pages 8 ½ " by 11:,
hardbound $50These cemetery inscriptions were copied by Clara
and Louise Mark in the 1940s. They consist of the older inscriptions
that were found in the original Delaware County which included
parts of the area that became Morrow in 1848 and Monroe in 1813
when those counties were formed out of property that was originally
in Delaware. Not all of the cemeteries were copied and not all of
the more recent burials were copied. Mrs. Powell added to this work
the office burial records of the very large Oakwood Cemetery at
Delaware, Ohio. These records included the records of the older
Delaware City Cemeteries moved into Oakwood and some of the
records of the adjoining St. Mary's Catholic Cemetery. There are
many tombstones of interest in the 120 year old cemetery. There is
an index to the major portions of the book, beginning on page 378
to 392. Surnames appearing on more than three pages are: Adams,
Aldrich, Alexander, Alford, Allen, Aller, Alspach, Anderson, Andrews,

FRANKLIN COUNTY, OHIO - CRAZY CRATE FF25: BOOK 11: D074:
EVERY NAME INDEX TO THE 1870 FEDERAL POPULATION CENSUS,
FRANKLIN COUNTY, OHIO. Compiled and Published by the volunteers
of the Franklin County Genealogical Society, Columbus, Ohio. ©1999.
Cardstock front cover with clear plastic overlay, heavy nice back
cover and wire spiral binding. What a lot of work went into this
book! Price $20. This IS NOT an index to the heads of households in
the 1870 Census. This is an every-name index with the code for the
township and the page number for every one. 240 pages, with 84
names per column, three columns per page and 240 pages and this is
just for Franklin County. Now granted, this is a big county and the
capital city, Columbus, is located here, but that is a lot of people.
An analysis of the film and the enumerator's handwriting
peculiarities is helpful. Of much interest to me was the chart called
the Breakdown of the inhabitants of Franklin County, Ohio as listed
on the 1870 cernsus. It gave the area name, the number of
inhabitants, how many were colored, how many were foreigners,
percentage from which foreign country and the next most foreigners.
In all cases the largest percentage of foreigners were either German
(19 times with rates often in the 60% to 80% range) or Irish (7
times with % usually under 20%.). The nextThe total population
numbered 62, 061 as added by the census takers. 2,715 were
colored, 10,464 were foreigners. Most often counted foreigners
were Canada (1 time), England (5 times), German (3 times), Ireland
(8 times), and Wales(2 times). Some had no nation listed as second.
The first page lists names from AARON to AGLER with the following
surnames having five or more: Abbe 11, Abel 5, Abner 8, Abott 7,
Achey 7, Acker 5, Ackerman 15, Adam 13, Adams 105, Addle 7,
Adel 12, Agan 6, and Agler 6 on this page alone. 239 more pages to
