What They Are and How to Use Them. Heritage Quest, 1998. 127 pages, laminated
heavy cardstock covers, indexed, wrapper style covers. Title page has remnants of a
stamp, which says, in light ink "Hopelessly Hooked Genealogist". [ I think most of us
can relate to that one!] Beneath the stamp she has neatly used a black marker to
obscure her name and protect her privacy. You can add your name in the blank space
under the stamp.By John J. Newman, who has forty years of genealogical researching
expertise. The author is a native of Milwaukee, WI, and holds a Master's Degree in
American History from IndianaUniversity.
He spent sixteen years as our IndianaState Archivist before transferring to the Indiana
Supreme Court where his abilities were fully utilized with his position as Director of
Information Management Services for the Indiana Supreme Court.
He has lectured widely to local, regional and national Genealogical Societies. As an
archivist he knows that the more thoroughly that one understands the "why and the
how" public records are kept, the more successful their research can be.
Understanding the procedures an immigrant underwent to become a citizen is critical
to determining what to look for and where to find it. By appreciating the total record
keeping process, you will be better able to locate all records created on that immigrant
relative-not just the obvious ones.PRICE: new-$12.95. This lightly used copy $10.
PK CRAZY CRATE PK01 - BOOK 2: THE BRISTOL REGISTERS OF SERVANTS SENT
TO FOREIGN PLANTATIONS 1654-1686. By Peter Wilson Coldham.©1988 by the author.
491 pages, 6" by 9", hardbound with nice, clean dust jacket and indexed. In the late
1600s the port of Bristol, England, enjoyed a monopoly of the trade with Virginia and
the West Indies. The trade in indentured servants, in particular, was especially heavy
at this time, but there was so much fraud in the trade that the Bristol City Council
passed an ordnance in 1654 requiring that a register of servants destined for the
colonies be kept, the purpose being to discourage "spiriting". The infamous practice
of coercing or duping innocent youths into servitude was wrong. The registers of
servant's indentures were bound into two volumes, dated 1654 to 1679, while from
1679 to 1686 details of the servants were written into a rough book called Names and
Apprentices. Together, these books comprise the largest body of indenture records
known and are an invaluable and unique record of English emigration to the American
Colonies. Of the total of 10,000 servants recorded in the Bristol Registers, all but a
handful came from the West Country, the West Midlands, or from Wales.
Four indexes have been included: 1. Servants, 2.) Ship's Masters, 3.) Places of Origin,
Since you are going to be meeting this term often in this book, a note of explanation for
the name- YEOMAN is being given here: 1.) An experienced man capable of keeping
accounts of supplies and costs; 2,) a farmer who tills his own small acreage; 3.) a
person who can be counted on to work diligently, 4. A clerk or writer [lawyer] in the navy.
Details of each entry vary, of course, but most entries give:
1. The Name of the Servant,
2.) His Place of Origin,
3.) Length of Service,
4.) Destination [usually Virginia, Maryland, or the West Indies,]
5.) After 1670 it includes the name of the ship.
Some samples follow:
1.) Thomas, son of Thomas Ree of Upper Warren, Worc[ester], Yeoman to William
Willett of Bristol, merchant, 8 yrs. Virginia.
2.) John Lewes of Newport, Pembroke, yeoman, to Edward Child, of Bristol, pewterer,
3.) John Miles of Whaddon, sergeweaver, to William Curtis 4 yrs, New England by
Boston Merchant, said William Curtis, M[aster]
4.) Susanna, wife of John Miles, to above 4 yrs New England by Boston Merchant.
Each one of these also comes with a date, omitted here because of space
The indexes begin on page 389 and run to 491.

PK CRAZY CRATE PK01 - BOOK 3: SCOTS ON THE CHESAPEAKE 1607-1830.
Compiled by David Dobson. Genealogical Publishing Company, © 1992. 169 pages,
6" by 9:, indexed, hardbound. There has been a Scottish element in the population
around the Chesapeake since the founding of Jamestown in 1607. There were
probably only about 200 who were there by 1645. When Oliver Cromwell exiled 900
Scots prisoners of war around 1650, the numbers in America began to grow as he sent
his political prisoners here. The Voyage of the Golden Lion of Dundee established
settlement links as early as 1626, but the British, with their "Navigation Acts" to limit
access during the 1660s had the effect of making the trade between Scotland and the
English Colonies illegal. During those years the Scots Government followed the
English practice of transporting criminals, religious and political "undesirables" to the
American plantations. Many of these people were Covenanters-militant Presbyterians
who opposed the Stuart Kings. Not all of these prisoners made it to America. In 1679
over two hundred of these Covenanters went down with the ship, Crown of London, in
a storm off the Orkney Islands. In 1689 when William and Mary acceded to the thrones
of Scotland and England, this period ended. With the demise of the Episcopal Church
in Scotland, many of the ministers left to take jobs in Virginia and Maryland as tutors,
schoolmasters and ministers. When Scotland and England created their political union
in 1707, that solved much of the problem, and the ships again began to travel between
the two countries. The rapid growth of the tobacco trade sped everything up. By 1740
Glasgow had dominated that trade, so there were Scottish merchants, factors, and their
servants throughout the regions. With the success of the American Revolution, our
ships no longer needed to go to a British port. They could freely land at any major
European port. Probate courts, court records, indenture agreements, jail registers,
family papers, newspapers and magazines, naturalization papers, Loyalist claims,
church records, militia papers, gravestone inscriptions government documents and
census returns were scanned for clues. Page xv should be photo-copied first as it is
your key to what 21 different abbreviations used herein mean! With fifteen to twenty

PK CRAZY CRATE PK01 - BOOK 4: THE SCOTS-IRISH IN THE CAROLINAS. By Billy
Kennedy. © 1997. The third in a series of Scots-Irish Chronicles by the author, who is
the assistant editor of the Ulster/Belfast News Letter - Northern Ireland's leading
morning newspaper having been founded in 1737. Ambassador Press, 207 pages,
5 ½ " by 8", laminated covers, indexed and softbound. The Carolina regions of the
USA were settled in large numbers during the 18th Century by tens of thousands of
Ulster-Scots Presbyterians, who left their native shores for reasons of religious
persecution and economic deprivation. The hardy Scots-Irish who tamed the
wilderness fill this book. The author starts his journey from the north of Ireland to the
port of Charleston, SC. And the Carolina piedmont [foot of the mountain], along the
Great Wagon Road from Pennsylvania, through the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia,
into the western highlands of North Carolina, and down to the historic Waxhaws,
where President Jackson spent his childhood and early youth. Besides the historical
background certain families are covered in more detail. Interesting chapters among
others in this book, which is a great read, by the way, are: Early Movement to America;
American Presidents from the Carolinas, The Scotch-Irish Roots of President Jimmy
Carter; Covenanting Stock who Peopled the Carolinas; Journey to America (for four
shillings and eight pence) and the Settlement of the Hearst Family; 'Poor Calvinists' in
Williamsburg; The Moores of Walnut Grove and heroine Kate Berry; From County
Antrim to Fairview, SC; The formidable John C. Calhoun; the Kings of the Wild Frontier;
Arthur Dobbs - Founding Father of NC; Native Indians of the Southeast; Watauga;
Typical Ulster-Irish Families covered in lots of detail: Andersons, Brownlees, Caldwells,
Catheys, Copelands, Cochrans, Culbertsons, Erwins, Hamiltons, Hanveys, Hills,

Porters, the Reids, the Ritcheys/Ritchies, the Seawrights, the Sherards, the Speers and
the Wallaces. Plus County Down Colonies in Virginia and South Carolina. There is
ncredible detail as this author traced the families from Ireland to where they settled in
America. A journey we genealogists want to take in reverse! PRICE $20
PK CRAZY CRATE PK01 - BOOK 5: IRELAND AND THE IRISH. A Short History. By
Karl S. Bottigheimer. © 1982, Columbia University Press, 301 pages, indexed, dust
jacket (being almost 30 years old, this colorful dust jacket is not pristine, nor is it in the
least shabby. The top front and back are slightly curled outward, the top and bottom
have an occasional 1/8" split, This book jacket has been well-cared-for and is flat with
no wrinkles or creases. The black magic marker has covered three lines of name and
address on the inside front page. The author teaches English and Irish History at the
StateUniversity of New York at Stony Brook. This is his third book. This author ably
covers Ireland's rich and complex past of over 5,000 years. He drew on church
records, art and archeological evidence to illustrate the prehistoric era, the heroic age
of Celt, Viking and Norman conquests, and the world of early Christianity. He explores
the development of a distinctive Irish culture and society during the Middle Ages, the
Tudor conquest of the sixteenth century, the establishment and rule of a Protestant
Ascendancy in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries and the resurgence of a
Catholic Ireland in the nineteenth century. The author then delineates the turbulent
formation of the modern Irish state and chronicles both its glories and its frustrations,
The Irish experience is shown geographically in its European and worldwide setting.
Early waves of immigrants to Ireland and later waves of Irish emigrants abroad are
given a prominent place in the overall picture. This book is distinguished by its
breadth both geographically and chronologically. It will deepens your interest in, and
knowledge of, the land so many of our ancestors left long ago to build a new life here.

PK CRAZY CRATE PK01 - BOOK 6: THE MELUNGEONS. Notes on the Origin of a
Race. Revised Edition. © 1992 by the author. By Bonnie Ball, The Overmountain
Press, 114 pages, 5 ½ " by 8 ½ ", softbound with colorful covers on slick heavy paper.
Mrs. Ball is quite familiar with the Melungeon peoples. Two families lived on her
father's farm, and worked with him, and she taught Melungeon children in the local
Schools since she taught in Scott, Dickinson and BuchananCounties in Tennessee.
This ethnological study is both scholarly and highly readable. The author traces,
objectively, the roots of one of America's more obscure peoples. Numerous theories
exist for the origin of these people, who were not black nor white nor Indian. In this
work the author discusses the various theories, their strengths and weaknesses, and
the multiple possibilities. These theories include the roles of Sir Walter Raleigh's
"Lost Colony", shipwrecked Portuguese sailors, followers of Spain's Fernando de
Soto who were left behind in America, various Native American Tribes, and black
slaves in the Melungeon ancestry. The author has also included a comprehensive list
of "Some Suggested Reading" to provide the broadest possible range of information.
This work is a must-have for anyone interested in early Appalachian history and the
Ethnic development of America. Original PRICE was $10, now only $8.
PK CRAZY CRATE PK01 - BOOK 7: SCOTTISH HIGHLANDERS ON THE EVE OF THE
GREAT MIGRATION 1725-1775. THE PEOPLE OF ARGYLL. By David Dobson. ©2005
by the author. Clearfield Company, 2005. 137 pages plus the 1714 map, by Hermann
Moll of Northern England showing the Western Islands. 5 ½ " by 8 ½" slick coated
covers in black & white. Wrappers. The next map is of Modern Argyll showing the
parishes, etc. From the Introduction by the author: "Emigration from Scotland to
colonial America, which had been small scale during the seventeenth century, became
significant during the eighteenth century. Much of this exodus originated in the
Highlands of Scotland where the traditional social and economic structures were
beginning to break down under pressure from the Commercial and the Industrial
Revolutions which were occurring in both England and Lowland Scotland. Profits
were to be made by supplying raw materials and foodstuffs to the growing factory
towns. Clan chiefs increasingly abandoned their patriarchal role in favor of becoming
capitalist landlords, and the traditional social fabric of the Highlands was soon in
tatters. This social breakdown was alsointensified through the failure of the Jacobite
cause in 1746 followed by the military occupation and repression that occurred in the
Highlands in the aftermath of Culloden. The absorption of thegreat Highland
landowners and clan chiefs into the British elite ultimately resulted in farm rents being
increased to enable the landowners to maintain their new life styles. Voluntary emigrants
bound for North Carolina and New York, and others from Inverness were bound for
Georgia. In 1746 the British Government dispatched about one thousand Jacobites,
prisoners of war, in or prisoners in chains were sent as indentured servants bound for the colonies."
The History lesson continues with details of when and where, but the majority of this
book is the actual lists of the people involved which follows this two-page history
lesson. This book is designed to identify the kind of material that is available in the
absence of church records and will supplement the church records when they are
available. The materials in this book just deal with Argyll, thereby limiting the
broadness of the items which needed to be found, compiled, indexed and made
available. Mr. Dobson, already famous worldwide for his ability to find and properly
compile information on these Scottish families, has now refined his research
to the point he has zeroed in on how it needs to be done from there, not here. The
readers of his books are deeply grateful when they find what he has located for them.
You will feel he has been of tremendous help to everyone searching in vain for
information on our side of the Atlantic, and finding little, if you find your immigrant
ancestor in this book! Every source is cited, so you can follow up on the information.
