Shipping and handling fees are $5 per package or tube.  We pay for  

delivery confirmation on all orders we can, so if your package does not

We can add the exact cost of the USPS insurance for your order to your bill,

with the exact costthe Post Office charges us.  Most packages under $100  

can be insured for about $1.75, and since we cannot, often in the case of  

our Crazy Crate books which are usually one-of-a-kind items,  replace  

them, it might be a good idea for the  more expensive or larger orders.

 

We collect sales tax for the states of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota  

and Ohio.  This will be added to your order automatically.  If you are a tax  

exempt organization, please have your state tax exempt number ready  

when you call your order in to us.

 

With this crate, we are back to our regular listing of books available for you  

to add to your genealogy library at home. 

 

We are happy to announce that every one of the PK books has been sold.   

We thank her for sharing her books with all of us, and we are so pleased  

that we were able to help her out in this way.  Her certified check will be  

on its way to her shortly, and she just e-mailed me a list of some more  

books she would like for me to sell for her.

 

So keep watch for a new PK crate coming soon.

I sure hope they were as much fun to do as that first set!

 

This is a crate of North Carolina Books that may be very interesting to the  

same audience that liked the PK crates so much.  The number of Scotch  

Irish that settled in early migrations and during the Great Migration is  

legendary, and many of them settled in the Carolinas.

              

               NORTH CAROLINA RESOURCE LIST

****************************

STATEWIDE AND REGIONAL BOOKS

****************************

There are four main types of books printed to assist researchers in the  

pursuit of their ancestors' records in North Carolina.  First there are the  

general how-to, where-to guides that save you both time and money if  

you have them handy.  Most fit easily in a briefcase or suitcase and sit  

beside you on your desk at home for quick reference.  We have several of  

these on this list.

 

CRAZY CRATE 106 - BOOK 01:  NC-GUIDE 01: NORTH CAROLINA  

GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH.  By George K. Schweitzer.  1996.  This 169-

paged book, each page 6" by 9", contains 1,233 sources for tracing your  

North Carolina ancestor along with detailed instructions.  Chapters include  

I: North Carolina's Historical Background, II. Types of Records available in  

Archives, Libraries and Courthouses, III. Record Locations, IV: Research  

Procedures and County Listings, detailed listing of records available for  

each of the 100 North Carolina Counties including date of organization and  

parent counties.  The answers to most of a researcher's questions are in  

this book.  It is the best value in my shop for $12.  This price is less than  

one penny for each source!  PRICE:  $12

 

CRAZY CRATE 106 - BOOK 02:  NC-GUIDE 02:    NORTH CAROLINA  

GENEALOGICAL RESOURCES. By Charles M. Franklin, Published by YOGS,  

23 pages, 8" by 11", cardstock covers.  Nice cardstock covers in gold  

cardstock.  For over fifteen years, Charles Franklin was the head of our  

Research Department, and handled all of our research requests.  A  

Purdue University graduate, he had always been interested in tracing his  

family tree.The binder he carried with him on his travels was five inches  

thick and loaded with family group sheets.  He also compiled 178 source,  

[marriage, wills] and how-to books for us and took displays places we were

not able to go because we were speaking someplace else that weekend.   

This book is just what you need to carry with you when you are away from  

home researching your North Carolina Roots.  You would have to look in  

dozens of books to assemble this much information, and Charles has  

already done it for you.  Thanks, Charles! This book begins with a county  

map of North Carolina on the title page.  Charles put these state resource  

guides together for us on six states in which he had done much research.   

We thought they would be helpful to others, also.  He starts with a basic  

short history of the formation of the state.  Then he added short comments

on basic religious denominations settling there.  Next he added information  

on the keeping of vital records, census records, tax lists, probate records,  

land and property records, naturalization records, military records, and  

divorce records.  Many answers to questions that "pop up" while doing  

research are found right here.  This is the kind of information you need to  

know to do a thorough research project, but are not sure where to look  

for it since you are not at home.  The single-spaced list of Archives and  

Libraries with complete addresses gives you 61 places to write, call or visit  

to collect the information you want.  Addresses may be dated, because  

Charles did these before he passed away on January 1, 2001, so just  

Google the name and you will find their Website with the up-to-date

information on it.  His list of Genealogical and Historical Societies gives you  

another 113 places to look.  His section on periodicals lists 94 periodicals  

many of which are held in the collections of numerous libraries, both in  

North Carolina and in all states that have former North Carolina people  

living there now.  But if you didn't know that periodical had been published,  

you wouldn't know to ask for it, now would you? 

Next is even more information you also need to know.  County formation  

data is what you need to know to look up marriages that happened in your  

area before the present county was formed.  Where did your ancestors go  

to get married five years before this present county was first formed?   

Here is your answer!  For each county you get name, date created, parent  

county's name(s), the county seat, [usually the home of the county court

house, the address of the courthouse with zip code and telephone number!]  They don't move the contents of the courthouse often, but the mailman can find it even with the old address.  This courthouse  

information takes eight pages, but you have all 100 counties with you. 23  

pages of the essential information you need to know, at your fingertips for  

$6.  At that price, you can't afford NOT to have it!  PRICE: $6  Multiple  

copies are available.

 

CRAZY CRATE 106 - BOOK 03:  NC-GUIDE 03:     SOURCES FOR  

GENEALOGICAL SEARCHING IN NORTH CAROLINA.  By Betty L. McCay,

Genealogist and Teacher of Genealogy in Indianapolis, Indiana.  Compiled  

in 1969.  Ten pages 8 " by 11".  Cardstock covers, stapled three times.   

A map of North Carolina County Boundaries as of 1790-1911 is the first  

item.  This map shows the county outlines of 1790 in heavy black lines  

overlaid on a map showing  the 1911 boundaries of the more current  

counties.  Chapters include:  1.) History and Settlements, 2.) Census  

Records, 3.) Newspapers, 4.) Land Grants, 5.) Vital Records, 6.) Church  

Records, 7.) School Records, 8.) The McCubbins Collection, [about 150,000

items now located in the Rowan County Library in Salisbury, NC,] 9.) Court  

Records, 19.) Military Records, 11.) Genealogical Magazines and Periodicals,

12.) North Carolina Libraries, 13.) Genealogical Reference Books and Helps,  

and 14.) Losses of Records by Fire or Otherwise, by Counties.  Very helpful  

book.  We used her books, which she did for several states, and found them  

so helpful, we began to publish and market them for Mrs. McCay until the  

time of her death.  This one copy priced at just $4. 

 

CRAZY CRATE 106 - BOOK 04:  NC-GUIDE 04:NORTH CAROLINA LOCAL  

HISTORY - A SELECT BIBLIOGRAPHY.  By George Stevenson of the  

Department of Cultural Resources, Division of Archives and History, This  

Archives Information Circular fast became a standard and indispensable  

reference.  Updated in 1975.  93 pages, 8 " by 11"  cardstock covers,  

stapled.  County-by- County, the histories are listed, so you  

know what has already been done, and, hopefully indexed by  

now, and local histories are listed so you don't forget to check  

on them by inter-library loan or in person.  PRICE: $9.   

 

CRAZY CRATE 106 - BOOK 05:  NC-GUIDE 05:  NORTH CAROLINA  

ARCHIVAL AND MANUSCRIPT DEPOSITORIES IN NORTH CAROLINA: A  

DIRECTORY.  149 pages, 8" by 11", cardstock wrappers. This book  

contains the History of the Society of North Carolina Archivists.  The  

Organization of the directory entries is given, followed by the entries.   

There is an institution index and a county-by- county index.  A very nice  

county map is found on page 140.  Genealogists have a real love affair with  

buildings that house our favorite places to go.  If we are not in a court  

house, we want to be in a library.  But there are other good places to go  

which may hold important genealogical information:  Archives, Museums,  

Genealogical Societies, Historical Societies. Colleges, Special Rooms  

devoted to genealogical pursuits in Colleges and Universities.  For each of  

these you have the contact person, which may be dated, [when you call  

get the new person's name, telephone numbers, hours they are open, and  

ask if prior arrangements are necessary and need to be made before you  

can research in their collection.]  In the description of the holdings, you  

have lineal feet of materials, inclusive dates, subjects and formats. You are  

told about restrictions, if any, whether this depository accepts materials.   

The services available information has probably changed, but at least you  

know what questions to ask.  Can you do your personal, private research  

there?  Do they allow your use of their copier or do they do it?  Is there a  

charge?  What equipment can you bring in?  Computer?  Electric or battery  

only?  Cameras allowed?  Recorders?  Do they have a card catalog for you  

to use?  Is it available online?  [Note:  Ask about whether online searching

is available?  Any materials on line?  Can you access from home?  Website?   

E-mail?]  Do they report documents located in their collection to be listed in

NUCMC?  OCLC?  Staff always changes with the season and the budget!  So

ask about it.  There are 139 institutions in North Carolina that filled out the  

survey this book holds and sent it back to become a part of this book.  The  

index is helpful because you can look up what you intend to search and see  

which repositories have that kind of materials.  Well worth its modest cost.  

If you don't know some depository has it, how will you know to go there to

look at it?  PRICE:  $20

Preface, in which he states, "the families from which we have descended  

have all lived in America since the Revolutionary War and, with the one  

exception of the Peletier line for a much longer time.  They all settled in the  

same locality of North Carolina in the early part of the Eighteenth Century  

and, for the most part, their descendants have continued there."  This  

excerpt begins on page 278 and continues through 283, then begins again  

at 336 and 337, then skips to page 370 through 377.  Surnames appearing  

on each page are as follows:

Page 278: Bray, Church, Cowan, Dudley, Garrett, Haywood, Hunter,  

Johnson, McIlheny, Purnell and Zibhenden.

Dudley.]

      in the book?  Book is in the Indiana State Library in its entirety!  

 

These are mostly the people in the family, or who married into their  

families or with whom they had business dealings, land sales, witnessing  

wills, etc.  I added a copy of my index to the back of those pages in the book.

Thanks for reading this newsletter.  I love doing them, except when my  

computer thinks it knows better than I do what it is I want to do.  I have had

all kinds of problems with my formatting on this newsletter, so I hereby  

hope you can figure it out if the format does not look as structured as I  

would like.  Pat from YOGS

Thanks for taking the time to check out our crates.

We really appreciate those people who are willing to give our books a second chance to be helpful.  Who knows?  Maybe the one you have been looking for will be on this crate or the next crate.  Blend this research with your census and courthouse research and see how your family puzzle can grow to be more complete!
