PK02-BOOK 1:  AN  ALPHABETICAL INDEX TO  ULSTER  EMIGRATION TO PHILADELPHIA, PA.  1803-1850.  By Raymond D. Adams.  Published by Clearfield 1992.  GPC, Reprinted 1994, 1996, 1998 & 2000. Introduction-page v, vi, & vii.  Part 1-The Emigrant List-pages.1- 94, Part Two-Towns & Townlands found in index-pages 95-100, Endnotes-page 101.  Several factors contributed to the compulsory emigration from Ireland during the first half of the nineteenth century.  Particularly affected was the citizenry of the province of Ulster, They were Protestant as well as Catholic.  Ulster Scots first set the patterns of migration to America the previous century.  After being lured by grants and low rents, to move to Ireland, they realized that Ireland was not the promised land after all; bad harvests, religious discrimination based on their refusal to convert to the Church of England, and high rents sent them off at the rate of 4,000 a year.

Then came the un-successful rebellion of 1798, that affected all people throughout Ireland.  Although the southern and western part was intensely unhappy, there was support for the rebels in the Ulster counties of Antrim and Down.  Dissenters were many, both Protestants and Catholics.  In a period of only about three weeks, 30,000 people throughout Ireland-(men, women and children) armed only with pitchforks and pikes were decimated.  Antrim was granted a general amnesty.  But those of Down were shot down in the streets and left unburied.  Their leaders, McCracken and Nonroe, were executed.  Their treatment was enough reason to want to leave this country ruled by such hateful leaders.   

The Act of Union between Great Britain and Ireland-January 1, 1801, only caused more problems because it was inherently unfair to Ireland.  Prime Minister William Pitt was forced to bribe wealthy Protestants to surrender their power and earldoms and the English promised emancipation for all Catholics which was never intended to occur.  Emigration to America continued through the first half of the century, but reached its peak in 1847-1848.  The blight had struck the potato crop, the main staple of an ordinary family's food supply.  An infected potato could not be eaten, and their crop rotted, uneaten, in the ground.  More than one million people died of starvation, dysentery, or the plague. From 1845 to 1848 more than one million people left for other countries. 


Philadelphia was a thriving, growing city, giving the newcomers jobs in foundries, construction and leather industries, textile mills and brickyards.  Skilled craftsmen and the laborers found work quickly here.  And Philadelphia promised life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness to her new residents, as well as that precious freedom from British Tyranny.  There's more history in a well-written introduction plus attention to the sources listed.  The page format consists of ten column headings across the top in a single line:Here in two lines, in the book these are all even.

The publishers say of this book.  "This is the basic source book on the Scotch-Irish in America, a massive compilation of source records pertaining to the Scots who settled in the North of Ireland and their descendants in America.  Volume I describes in detail the conditions in both Scotland and Ireland at the time of the Scottish migrations to Ireland and America.  Volume II contains a detailed survey of Scotch-Irish settlements in America in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and features lists and records referring to tens of thousands of individuals.  Also included in this volume are chapters devoted to Scottish names, Scottish families, and locations of Scottish families in Ireland, Again two volumes, one with 621 pages and 602 pages in the other.  Now only available new in softbound, this copy is in hardbound, sewn-bnding, library-quality hard covers.  Good condition.  PRICE: $55.  What a bargain for such a nice set of books. 


The maps in these books are so small they literally would need a magnifying glass or a magnabrite to see, never mind read the print.  But everybody understands that maps are a great help in figuring out how and why our ancestors left the homeland and came to the new land of America.  These maps are great, in color, in a protective acid-free cover ready to frame.  They are 11" by 14", a standard frame size, so it doesn't cost a fortune to frame them unless you have a fortune to spend it on frames! 


JP 06-10:  MAP 1:  IRELAND - 1855.  The advent of the use of lithography for mapmaking led to development of a strong cartographic industry in New York City. One of the important firms responsible for this was the J.H. Colton firm, which issued this fine map in its atlas of 1855. The precise detail and soft hand coloring of this map are typical of lithographed state maps of the second half of the nineteenth century.  PRICE: $9 and now 10% off until August 31, Now just $ 8.10
