Well, the genealogical conference season in the Midwest is getting into full swing for attendees and vendors. So far I've done three conferences and still have at least seven or eight more to go.
It has been an interesting year for me. I normally attend twelve to fifteen conferences every year, but several of the genealogical society conferences which I usually attend have been set up for the same dates, so I've had to pick and choose. The Wisconsin State Genealogical Spring Conference, Quad Cities Genealogy Conference and the Indiana Genealogical Society Conference were all on the same day. The Wisconsin State Fall Conference and the Louisville Genealogical Society Conference are both on the same day, and the Elkhart County, Indiana, Western Wayne County, Michigan and Western Michigan Genealogical Society are all on the same day. I'm already confirming some dates for conferences in 2012 and 2013.
On the other hand, I did pick up some new conferences.
Many thanks for the great turn-out at the Milwaukee County Genealogical Society conference on April 30. It was a great pleasure to meet all of you and I hope to see you all again in 2013. (No conference in 2012).
I was hoping to hear from my old friends at the Palatines to America Conference, which I have attended regularly as one of the largest vendors since 1997, but I never received any responses to my repeated requests for information. So, I'm sorry to disappoint my buyers who were looking forward to my being there.
My color maps of Germany, Stevenson's large Pennsylvania Dutch color wall genealogy charts and other materials have always been big sellers at the conferences. I won't be there, but you can find all of the maps, in color, on Pat's website https://www.yogs.com or on my e-bay store http://stores.ebay.com/Michiana-History-Publications
And, "where one door closes, another opens," And if you are interested in German materials and live in the Whitewater, Wisconsin, area you can find me at the German Interest Group Conference on July 9.
I want to thank everyone who has stopped by my displays and complimented me on my new arrangement. I had been using the old display since I started doing conferences in 1989 but, I simply can't lift 65 heavy wooden boxes of books anymore, and set them up three high like bookcases. Each box averaged about 35 pounds. And then I still had to set up "A" frames for maps and also set up wire racks for some materials. So I slowly started reorganizing my display about three years ago; and it is nearly complete, with almost every book and map showing face-out on "A" frames. I'm not carrying as many books as I used to carry and it still takes almost as much time to set up, but the customers don't have to stand in line waiting to get into a bookcase where they can only see the spine, and my back says "thank you" when I finish setting it up. No more back aches, hot pads and aspirin.
Now, onto our crazy crate information:
We recently received a collection of the great Irish genealogy magazine, The Irish At Home and Abroad, and we're passing them along to you with some other great Irish books. I hope you find something you can use.
Unlike many genealogy magazines, The Irish at Home and Abroad was not a listing of names and dates but rather, it provided detailed articles on researching Irish ancestors in the United States, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, and various countries in South America. It discussed research methodology and provided detailed information on many record sources. The editors and authors are to be congratulated for their diligent research and extremely informative articles. It ceased publication with volume 6 issue number 4. (1999)

CRAZY CRATE JP 75 BOOK 7: The Irish. By William W. Giffin. Indianapolis: Indiana Historical Society Press. 2006. 127 pages. Softcover. (volume 1 of the Peopling of Indiana series). The history of the Irish in Indiana is intricately woven into the fabric of the state's history. The Irish first arrived in Indiana along with the fur traders in the 1700s. In the 1800s many Irish immigrants struggled to create new lives as they built Indiana's early canals, roads, and railroads. As Indiana progressed, so did the Irish. Today Hoosiers of Irish origin can be found in all facets of Indiana society from business and medicine to law and politics. From humble beginnings, Indiana's Irish have become an integral part of the state's tapestry while continuing to celebrate their Celtic past. Nearly 30 photographs and illustrations enhance the text. Price: $13.95
CRAZY CRATE JP 75 BOOK 8: Erin's Pilgrim Bishop, Blessed Thaddeus mCCarthy. By the Sisters of Providence. Saint Mary's of the Woods, Vigo County, Indiana. The Rosary Press. 1901. 85 pages. Hardcover. Note: this is an original edition, not a reprint. The binding is tight and the pages are clean. The original cover still shows the gilt lettering but it is not sharp. Handling has discolored some of the cover and the back cover has acquired some kind of reddish stain probably from a cover of a red book which may have been next to it on the shelves. Thaddeus McCarthy was born in Ireland in the year 1455. His father was Lord of Muskerry and his mother was the daughter of Fitz Maurce, Lord of Kerry. His early education may have been on the Continent, where many of his ancestors had endowed famous seats of learning. His advancement in secular and religious science was quick and in 1479 he was ordained to the Priesthood by Bishop Purcell of Ross. The See or Ross became vacant in 1482 and Thaddeus was elevated to the Episcopate. However, the War of the Roses had begun in England and spread to Ireland, involving his family, who favored the House of Lancaster. In 1488 charges were made against Thaddeus, and he was relieved of his responsibilities. He went to see Pope Innocent VIII in Rome to resolve the conflict and was found innocent of the charges. Thaddeus returned to Ireland and two years later he was appointed to the See of Cork and Cloyne. However, more charges and rumors were made and he again had to return to Rome to resolve the new rumors. Again he was exonerated. While returning to Ireland, Thaddeus made a pilgrimage of the various shrines of devotion. However, exhausted by travel and fasting, he lodged for a night at the Hospice of St. Bernard and died in his sleep. This book is a tribute to Thaddeus, as Pope Leo XIII beatified him on August 26th, 1895. (Beatification is the first step in the Catholic Church process for making Thaddeus a saint.) Beatification festivities were held on September 12th, 13th, and 14th, 1896 in Ivrea. This book contains Pope Leo XIII's address to the Irish Pilgrims, a description of the celebration in Ivrea, and various speeches made by the clergy. Eight photographs of the Pope and various clergy plus one photograph of Blessed Thaddeus' tomb enhance the text. Price: $20.00
CRAZY CRATE JP 75 BOOK 9: The Origins of Over 200 Irish Surnames. Indianapolis: the Researchers. No date. 21 pages. Softcover.

CRAZY CRATE JP 75 BOOK 10: The Making of Modern Ireland, 1603 - 1923. By. J. C. Beckett. New York: Alfred A. Knopf. 1966. Seventh printing, 1983. 496 pages plus three maps. Hardcover. Note: the binding is weak, the front hinge is almost detached from the book, and many of the pages are underlined in pencil. This book traces the course of events between two watersheds in Irish history - the complete subjugation of the country by the English in 1603 and the establishment of the Irish Free State in 1923. It offers to the general reader as well as to the more serious student an interpretation of the historical background of modern Ireland, incorporating the results of much recent research. Though political developments provide the main theme, economic and social factors have not been ignored, and the result is a balanced, highly readable account of how the Ireland of today came to be. As history the work is remarkably free from bias on a subject that has rarely called forth this virtue. The seventeen page index covers nearly 1,200 entries. Price: $5.00
CRAZY CRATE JP 75 BOOK 11: THE IRISH WAY. A WALK THROUGH IRELAND'S PAST AND PRESENT. By Robert Emmett Ginna. New York: Random House. 2003. 298 pages. Hardcover. Note: the name "Lucey" written on the inside front flyleaf. Pages 161, and 167, have checkmarks on the top of the page and several words underlined in ink. The author has written a memorable contribution to Irish travel literature. In his eighth decade, Ginna set out to walk the length of Ireland, some 350 miles from its most northerly point, Malin Head, in Donegal, to Kinsale, on the Atlantic coast of Cork. Familiar with the country for many years, Ginna had seen the influx of high-tech industries and membership in the European Union transform Ireland from a poor, largely agricultural country into the prosperous "Celtic tiger." He wanted to judge for himself what the Irish had gained - and perhaps lost - and what they have preserved from a rich yet tumultuous heritage. Ginna encountered a host of interesting Irish men and women from many walks of life on his trek through three counties of Northern Ireland and ten counties of the Republic. Among them were the soldiers for the British garrison in Omagh, the young woman who directs the annual film festival in strife-scarred Londonderry, the self-made man who founded the Famine Museum of Strokestown, captains of high-tech industries, and farmers whose families have worked their lands for generations. At Birr, he visited the Earl of Rosse in the castle his family has held for nearly four hundred years, in Tipperary he met a gentleman farmer who had unearthed an early medieval chalice valued at more than sx million pounds. Weaving song, poetry, and story into his narrative, Ginna brings to life the heroes and rogues, saints and patriots, who have shaped Ireland's turbulent and colorful culture and history. Tne ten-page index covers over 500 entries. Price: $10.00

CRAZY CRATE JP75 BOOK 13: IRISH FAMILY RESEARCH MADE SIMPLE: REVISED EDITION: By E. J. Collins, 1993, Summit Publications, now a part of YOGS. 78 pp., Printed 11" by 17", stapled twice in center after folding. Now 8.5" X 11", slick covers, Softbound. Before 1922, for 700 years, the British ruled all of Ireland. Many Englishmen came to Ireland, a part of the British Empire, and in the process of living there, were being absorbed into Ireland and its culture. It is said that they became more Irish than the Irish themselves!
As the interest in genealogy exploded in the United States, so did the interest in Ireland. This had a beneficial approach on both countries as new sources were opened up, indexed and made available to researchers worldwide. Almost everybody should be able to trace their ancestry back to the 1800-1820 period.
In the early 1800s only about 40% of the Irish could read and write. Research of people who did not own land is the most difficult. It is also difficult if they did not conform to the Church of Ireland. You should be able to learn about the general history of the clan, or tribe, or family, to which your ancestors belonged. Every day new things come on line or are published which will help you.
[The Gooldy name is rare, but we were able to find a relative of Rays (we are not exactly sure what degree of cousinhood they shared as yet, who was listed as the Sheriff of Dublin at the same time Ray's ancestor was the Sheriff of Bedford County, Virginia.]
The number of Irish immigrants was not great. The 1790 Census listed only 14,000 people of Irish birth, with perhaps another 150,000 of Irish Ancestry, but born here, out of a population of 3 million.
There is much more detail in this book as to what they experienced here and how you can track them and what records to use to do so. Many are now available online or in printed form. The details, the wars, the Potato Famine, are all covered in these pages.
All of Ireland, since 1205, has been divided into twelve counties. There are maps here! Maps of the Ecclesiastical Diocese of Ireland, the four Historical Provinces and Ireland Today. How to locate the names of immigrant ancestor from US records is explained. Details of various sources of Irish records are given.
The Family History Centers of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has many items of interest on film which you may order and use at the Centers. Addresses of governments, US and Irish, and other sources are given, but should be checked online as many new genealogy sites and locations have been created lately. Names and addresses of Irish newspapers are included also. Ancestry.com should also be checked for new additions are made regularly to what is available there.
It is advisable for American researchers to do as much research here in the U.S., as possible, before attempting overseas research, and this book points out what you can do here, to help make your Irish ancestor stand out for you, so you can find all the joy that comes to one who has Irish Ancestry.
We have ample stock of this book, so I will put it on sale for you. Usually priced at $10, we will celebrate your wish to find your Irish Ancestor with a half-off sale. Until June 30, 2011, this book will be available for just $5. Multiple copies are available.
CRAZY CRATE JP75 MAP 14: LAST BUT NOT LEAST, THE BEAUTIFUL MAP OF IRELAND AS OF 1855 IN FULL COLOR. ByJohn H. Colton. The advent of the use of lithography for mapmaking led to the development of a strong cartographic industry in New York City. One of the important firms responsible for this was the J.H. Colton firm, who issued this fine map in their atlas of 1855. The precise detail and soft hand color of this map are typical of lithographed state maps of the second half of the nineteenth century. PRICE: $9
