Ye Olde Genealogie Shoppe Newsletter


Month Day Year:  June 1, 2011






SUMMER OPEN HOURS ARE11:00 a.m. TO 6:00 p.m. 



If you are coming through Indianapolis on your travels this summer and wish to stop and visit the shop, you may just come on out or, if you need to come at another time, call me to arrange for special hours.  Do this by calling Pat on the toll-free number 1-800-419-0200.  Or you can just take a chance and drop in.  She is "open" whenever she is home to her newsletter subscribers and friends.


If you aren't traveling this way, or you don't have time to stop, you can shop 24/7 on our websit:  https://WWW.YOGS.COM .


Always use our toll-free number 1-800-419-0200 for ordering by phone.  Ordering by phone, saves our newsletter subscribers $2 on your shipping and handling fee.  Selling books is what keeps me in business!


If you have a question, need some genealogical advice or are having a "brick-wall problem", call Pat at 1-317-862-3330.  The answers to a simple problem are available here because "Helping Genealogists IS what we do here!"


It is easy to sign up for our free - no obligation ever - newsletter.  Sign up on our website and have a visit from Pat every Tuesday and Friday mornings in the way of a new message in your e-mail box.  Book Reviews of some of Pat's thousands of genealogy books form the core of the newsletter.


These books are all for sale at reasonable prices, but you have no obligation to purchase anything ever.  However, if you don't know the book was ever actually written, you wouldn't know to ask for it and check the index for your surnames, would you?  She often abstracts surnames from the index to help you figure out if those SMITH, Brown, Davis and Jones families might actually be yours. 


Pat spent over half of her years attending school, for a little over 17 years with a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Science Degree in the fields of history, business and education. Then on the other side of the teacher's desk, she was teaching school in her home township for nine years.  She wrote a letter to a serviceman and 46 letters later he came to see her while on a 30-day leave.  They married exactly three weeks to the day after they met.  Ray went back to finish his two-and-one-half-year tour in Vietnam, then they were on to South Carolina for one year, Germany for three years and back home to her home township for 27 more years of first and second grade. 


In her "spare time", she has been doing, and promoting, genealogy since 1972.  It is a very popular hobby throughout most of the western world, although those that get involved in it usually consider it more of an obsession than just a hobby!  The newsletter is a "chatty letter" designed for easy reading and effortless learning.  When she runs across a "good idea" she is happy to share it with you.  She includes information on seminars, where and when, they are being held.  


She has spoken at over a hundred seminars, and is happy to share the knowledge and experiences she has had in her many years of traveling and speaking to genealogists all over the United States.  The newsletters vary in size and content depending on which of the state shelving units, she is trying to clear off, or rearrange, for both the new and used books she sells. 


With her husband Ray, who has been deceased now for almost ten years, they found they both enjoyed this genealogy hobby so much, they opened a store in 1975.  Ray originally started the newsletter and Pat has continued it since he has been gone.  The two of them were featured speakers in many states at seminars where they also displayed some of the over 900 products and books they publish to help genealogists do a better job of tracing their family trees.


She doesn't travel as much as she used to because Ray liked driving to near and far places and she does not!  Doing two newsletters a week keeps her busy enough! And her ringing telephone keeps her tied to her desk for a good part of her day.  "Whoops! The telephone is ringing!"


"I am back now, so let's get to the "County of the Day", Guilford County, North Carolina.  This county is another daughter of Rowan County, NC.

Guilford County was formed in 1770 from parts of both Rowan and Orange Counties.


These periodicals vary somewhat, but are around fifty or more pages each issue.  Some were done on 8 by 11 inch paper , given cardstock covers, and stapled twice.  The later issues we have are done on 11" by 17" paper folded in half and stapled in the center.  All of these on this list are ex-lib, have been in a California Library for years, and are now ready for another life in the library of some genealogist out there who really wants to know as much of the "Nitty and Gritty" stuff that they can find without having to spend years searching the Guilford County Courthouse.   


With gas the price it is, you can make better use of your research time and money, reading these periodicals in your home instead of even driving to a somewhat distant library that may not have the periodical you want, even after you do make it there!  By buying this set you will not only find something on your surname, but you will also have the proper "chain of evidence" as to where it actually appears in the courthouse or the old newspaper or the church graveyard or the Family Bible.                                                       

These books are all ex-lib, have been used, but are in good shape.  They do have several library markings, unfortunately on the front cover, but since they did not circulate there are no pockets.  They are also stamped as discarded by that library, giving you the priceless opportunity to buy an entire year's worth, about 200 pages worth, of "ancestor digging" for less than the price of five gallons of gas!

Nuggets, is an article concerning the ownership of items and their appropriation by others without payment.  According to THE NEW A TO Zax, Second Edition, By Barbara Jean Evans:  Trover is a court case intended to recover the worth of personal property which another person has illegally acquired and kept. 

Trover and conversion is an action to obtain damages against a person who has, without any right, used personal property which belongs to another person as his own.

Commonly used when livestock moved freely through the woods and forests to graze.  Usually, but not always, they were branded.  Brands were usually, but not always, registered with the courthouse giving proof as to who owned the animal, or other item.  Stray animals were sometimes taken up by the finders, who were by law, mandated to inform the owner.  Many finders protected against these suits by placing a descriptive advertisement in a newspaper, or on a broadside [poster] that an escaped slave had been caught and returned to the jail or that an animal had been found that did not belong to the man who currently had it on his property.  Then it became the original owner's responsibility to arrange or pay for the return of the slave or the cow, horse or pig involved.

The original owner often advertised, sometimes even offering a reward if a valuable item was returned to him.]  From the Greensborough Patriot - January - June 1842.  Bible Records

The List of People writing letters to people in this county can be a valid means of finding other relatives from other places to keep track of family members.  The newspaper would publish the notices in the hopes that the people to whom the letters were written would come in, identify themselves and pay the price written on the letter by the postal clerk in the sending post office which was to be collected from the receiver of the letter before he could have it.  If I had to pay for every letter I went to the post office to pick up, I would get a LOT LESS MAIL!
