PK07: CRAZY CRATE PK07 BOOK 1: IRISH AND SCOTCH-IRISH ANCESTRAL RESEARCH. A Guide to the Genealogical Records, Methods and Sources in Ireland. Two Volumes. 813 pages in Volume One. 354 pages in Volume Two. Both hardbound in a sturdy deep green binding.

 

By Margaret D. Falley, Fellow of the American Society of Genealogists. Originally published in Strasburg, Virginia, in 1962. Reprinted in 1998. 1961 by the author. Copyright transferred to GPC in 1980. Fourth printing in 1998.

 

The first volume in this set starts as a guide to doing preliminary research AT HOME AND FROM HOME. This author describes genealogical collections and indexes in all the major Irish repositories and the published indexes, catalogues, and printed sources available in Ireland and in the United States. These should be thoroughly checked first by visit, by phone or by mail.

 

The various chapters detail the types of records that exist and where they are, the nature and extent of the holdings, dates of coverage, and the existence of indexes to wills and probates, birth, marriage, and burial records, land, census, and tax records, and church and parish records.

 

Volume Two is a bibliography of family histories, pedigrees (see the index to this later), and source materials published in books and periodicals. It covers such printed works as parish, town and county histories, church records and family histories. It also has a list of over 1,400 manuscript family histories deposited in public record offices, a survey of the microfilm holdings of various American and Irish institutions, inventories, and an index of other manuscript collections of family articles appearing in over twenty periodicals, which are indexed here.  

 

If you believe that the best thing in life you can do is pick up on the little details and collect them, verify them and then polish them into a memory treat for your family, this is the book for you! It is something that will help keep those fond memories alive and encourage the young people of your family group to aspire to something more than the average bland life some families live.

 

To find out the WHO and the WHAT, you must seek out the WHERE and the WHEN. Only with these four elements based in facts, provable facts, can we figure out why our ancestors did whatever they did to get to that point where they chose to leave home in search of a better life. And then led you to be curious about the ancestors whose genes produced a DNA so special that it can match you to families unheard of in what you may someday find. She explains in detail her progress from family tradition to family reality. If your surname is Dickson, start on page 91! Be prepared to be astonished at what she has found!

 

But searching the Scotch-Irish is a little harder. Partially because there are so many of us! They estimated in 1960, there were more than 30 million descendants of those hearty Scotch, Irish, and Scotch-Irish living in the United States! The term "Irish" in the title of this work is broadly construed to include the Gaelic-Irish and the descendants of the Anglo-Norman or English settlers in Ireland who intermarried with the Gaelic-Irish.

 

By the way, the appellation "Scotch-Irish" is peculiarly American and never has been recognized in SCOTLAND or IRELAND!  Not as a distinctive race-name, nor does it denote a mixture of Scottish and Gaelic-Irish blood!! Find out more about that in the foreword!

 

In Part One: Thankfully, this wise lady begins with Chapter One - Preliminary Research in the United States. There is much that can be done in local sources to establish your ancestors and most of us can get back to 1850, or beyond, with the help provided right here at home or in large libraries all over the United States. This author has worked tirelessly to assemble items and books and microfilm available to be used to establish family histories with available materials found here, such as passenger arrival lists, and their similar printed ones with the Emigrant Lists of Northern Ireland in Belfast, Ireland. Naturalization records here list data to be noted in your records also. Mention is made in Chapter 2 of the need for a specific knowledge of the "townland" in considering the geographical origin of your ancestor. The terms city, town or county are familiar to us; but province, barony, diocese, or parish may need more explanation which she thankfully gives. Reading of the first 48 pages of this book will convince you of the worth of this book. Following this beginning, you can then tackle the twenty-three remaining chapters.  

 

She helps by telling you, "When tracing the records of any family of Northern Ireland, the two repositories which hold the best possibilities are the [Chapter I.] Registry of Deeds, Dublin,[54 more pages explain] and the [Chapter VI.] Public Record Office of Northern Ireland, Belfast [138 pages of explanation and details."

From page 51 to page 228 she tells you how to work with, and within, the two above and these four additional important repositories: [ Chapter II.] The National Library of Ireland, [ Chapter III.] Other Important Libraries, [Chapter IV.] The Genealogical Office (Office of Arms), and [Chapter V.] The Public Record Office of Ireland, in Dublin.

 

Part Three Covers what we are all looking for: THE RECORDS! Each of these chapters are filled with everything you need to know about what you can really expect to find in the way of documentation and detail: Here are the 24 chapters that will make a pro out of you!

Chapter I: Arms, Heraldry, and Nomenclature.

The general index to this book begins on page 755 and goes to page 813 with about 100 names on each page.  These are the individual names mentioned in all of the above records. 

 

Of special interest is a list on pages 450-461 of principal families in Ireland Counties, 11th to 17th century, none of which are included in the general index mentioned above.  Here is the entry for Londonderry:

Prince: O'Kane.

Lords: O'Conor, O'Quinn.

Chieftains: O'Brolchan, O'Carolan, O'Devlin, O'Freel, O'Hagarty, O'Mullen, O'Murray.

No title designated: Mac Connell, Mac Cracken, Mac Donnell, Mac Gilligan, Mac Loughlin, Mac Namee, Maginn, O'Cassidy, O'Criodan, O'Leenan, O'Mulligan, O'Quigly and O'Scullan.

 

The second volume of this set concentrates on PUBLISHED RECORDS. The information should not ever be included without verification of all data before the names, dates and places are added to your records. However, it is sometimes helpful to use them for leads as to where to look for further records. I have found, for my purposes, it works for me to photocopy all data whose source is anyone else, onto yellow paper because yellow reminds me to USE WITH CAUTION.Much of this genealogy was done centuries ago, and their access to proper documentation may have been little to none. Even Family Bibles were often "edited" by later generations. I have seen one family Bible where the second wife went through all the information, and scribbled out all the information about his first wife and her children.

People have tried for years to correct family genealogies that were printed years ago, without the quality of information available today. Today, a serious genealogist, will quote all sources of that information, so coming generations can say, "yes, that book does say this happened, but here is the documentation I have collected that seems to me to prove that it is not so.

 

Chapters in Part One of this second book, dated the same as the first book and printed at the same time both originally, and in the reprint, seems to indicate they were done together. The information in this book concerns, primarily, what has already been done and what published works were available in the 1960s. Proper bibliographies are given for each book.

Another very helpful part of this book is she has assembled by state, for many states, a bibliography of works likely to be in our large libraries and in many smaller libraries a comprehensive listing of books for that state likely to have information about our early ancestors who, probably, came from Ireland.  Best of all, this superb set of two books over 1,000 pages is priced at only $47. for the entire set! What a value!                    

 

These three books did not sell Tuesday, so I am giving you another chance to check them out!

 

NC CRAZY CRATE PK06 :  BOOK 2:  CAROLINA CRADLE:  SETTLEMENT OF THE NORTHWEST CAROLINA FRONTIER 1747-1762.  By Robert W. Ramsey. Published by the University of North Carolina Press, Chapel Hill, NC, 1964.  251 pages, softbound, coated covers. indexed, used.  "Dr. Ramsey, in this admirable book, has shown great pertinacity and ingenuity in tracing the movement of groups into new frontier lands, with the Yadkin [River] as a kind of Jordan.  This is a thorough and elegant piece of research." [Times Literary Supplement review quoted above.]  This account of the settlement of one segment of the NC frontier-the land between the Yadkin and the Catawba rivers-examines the process by which the Piedmont South was populated.  Through his ingenious use of hundreds of sources and documents, Robert Ramsey traces the movement of the original settlers and their families from the time they stepped onto American shores to their final settlement in the northwest Carolina territory.  He considers the economic, religious, social and geographical influences that led the settlers to RowanCounty and describes how this frontier community was organized and supervised.  Dr. Ramsey was a Professor of History at Appalachian State University in Boone, NC.   This book contains the following chapters:  The Maryland-Pennsylvania Piedmont; Origins of settlers on the northeast Carolina frontier, indicating the counties of settled Maryland, 1740; Original townships along the Susquehanna River, Lancaster County, 1729; The townships of Lancaster and Chester counties, 1740; The Bryan settlement 1747-48; The Irish settlement 1747-49; The Davidson's Creek settlement, 1748-51; the Fourth Creek settlement, 1750-62; The Davidson's Creek settlement, 1752-62; Original land grants in the Irish and Trading Camp settlements, 1747-1762; Presbyterian congregations, 1698-1730 and early German Churches in PA; The Beverly and Borden grants 1736-39; and the Town land of Salisbury.  Indexed. 

This surname index abstraction does not pick up the very few surnames with only one first name: Adam/s 2 pgs, Agader 2 p., pick this index up again after the Alexander special excerpt which follows here:

Sample actual entry from this book's index for the surname Alexander which has seven first name entries which occur on 23 pages: See below:

1.) Alexander, Allen, p. 94.

2.) Alexander, David, elder at "head of Christiana,"p. 51.

3.) Alexander, James, Rowan County court meets at his house, p. 152; schoolmaster, p. 190; mentioned p. 51-52, 157;

4.) Alexander, Moses, has lot in Salisbury, p. 159; serves against Cherokees, p.198; mentioned p. 51.

5.) Nathaniel, has lot in Salisbury, p.159; operates a mill, p.160; serves against the Cherokees, p. 198; mentioned p. 51.

6.) Alexander, William, mentioned 33n[in a footnote at the bottom of the page about a petition signing.], p. 51-52, extensive notes and migration information on these men and their families. Identified his house as being within two miles of Peter Arndt's house in the future town of Salisbury. p.58; More about the settlement at Salisbury, deeds, plat map; more about their movements and settlement, one death date, etc.

Cecil County, Maryland settlement, early life there. p. 189.

7.) Alexander, family in Cecil Co., Maryland militia p. 51, mentioned as Irish family in Rowan County, NC. p.55. Searching all the mentions and material on these pages would fill in a lot about the early movements of this family and prove a real boon to any researcher wanting to know more about this Alexander family. And this is all footnoted as to original location and source!

MD - PKO6 BOOK 3: HEADS OF FAMILIES AT THE FIRST CENSUS OF THE UNITED STATES TAKEN IN THE YEAR 1790 FOR THE STATE OF MARYLAND. Originally published by the Government Printing Office in 1907. This copy reprinted for Clearfield Company by GPC in 1992. This book begins with a map of the State of Maryland in the year of 1795, a nice two-page-spread with county boundaries showing in dotted lines. Please take the time to read the Introduction to this book. Much information you should know is included there. The total population in the United States, exclusive of slaves, was 3,231,533. The only names appearing on the census were the one head of household/families, about 400,000 of the 540,000 there actually were because some of the schedules for Delaware, Georgia, Kentucky, New Jersey, Tennessee and Virginia were destroyed when the British burned the Capitol at Washington, during the War of 1812.

189 pages of help in finding your 1790 ancestor living in Maryland!  This is a beautiful, bright red, softbound reprint of this very popular first country-wide census count.  All rules governing the count are included here in this book.  Only heads of household are listed by name. There are five other columns. The totals for the state of Maryland are included inside the brackets.

(1) The headings of the first column state:  "Free white males of 16 years of age and upward including heads of families.  [55,915.]

(2) The second column is titled, "Free white males under 16 years of age."  [51,339.]

(3) Free white females including heads of household."  [101,395.] 

(4)  The fourth column is headed, "All other free persons." [8,043.] 

(5)  The last column is for slaves. [103,036.]

 (6) TOTAL [319,728.]

The summaries of data concluded there were the above numbers of people which fell into each category.  There is also a county-by-county BREAKDOWN FOR THESE COUNTIES IN THE Western shore: AlleganyCounty, Ann-ArundelCounty, BaltimoreCounty, Baltimore town and precincts, CalvertCounty, CharlesCounty, FrederickCounty, HarfordCounty, MontgomeryCounty, PrinceGeorgesCounty, St. Mary's County and WashingtonCounty.   For the area known as THE EASTERN SHORE enumerations were taken in the following Counties: CarolineCounty, CecilCounty, Dorchester County, Kent County, QueenAnneCounty, SomersetCounty, TalbotCounty, and WorcesterCounty. Since the entire census with every number noted is reproduced in this book, there is no computer necessary, nor do you need a microfilm reader. Book is indexed by head of household, the only name collected by the census taker. But there are way to many to publish here! PRICE $25

 

NJ - PKO6 BOOK 4: THESE DARING DISTURBERS OF THE PUBLIC PEACE, The Struggle for Property and Power in Early New Jersey. By Brendan McConville. Associate Professor of History at BinghamtonUniversity. 1999 Cornell University Press, 318 pages, hardbound, dust jacket. Like new condition. During the century preceding the American Revolution, bitter conflicts raged in New Jersey over control of the land tenure system. This book examines how the struggle between yeomen farmers and landed gentry shaped public life in the colony. At once a cultural, political, and social history, it carefully delineates the beliefs of rioters and upholders of order, both of whom wanted control over land. Brendan McConville desxcribes how chasnges in provincial society affecting politics and government, religious life, economic conditions, gender relations and ethnic composition; led farmers to resort to violence as a means of settling property disputes. He examines the disagreements in light of competing conceptions of property held by separate landowning classes, differences in the legal and political traditions of English and Dutch colonists and local conditions unique to New Jersey. He also considers the ways in which the lack of a shared perception of deference to authority among Puritan, Dutch, and multi-rthnic communications helped foster insurrection. According to McConville, the social agranian unrest ultimately undermined imperial control and encouraged the creation of a new American identity. His book [the recipient of the Driscoll Prize from the New Jersey Historical Commission] ia an eagerly awaited account of a colony that has seldom been seriously examined by colonial historians and a challenge to those scholars to rethink commonly accepted arguments about the development of the United States.

This may have been one of the first battles in the War Between the Sexes fought in the United States covering social contacts, land property rights and inheritance rights. Women seem to have had a part in the battle in this book, [but have you noticed it seems to perpetually return to haunt us over new battlefields constantly?] This battle had to do partly, with a woman's right to own land They were dealing with the Dutch, who had one way of dealing, with the English who had tenant farmers who never owned the land, and others who owned the land and did as they wanted or pleased to do with it. Taking part from about 1818-1830 and beyond, it was an interesting battle to observe from the safety of today.  

This is a book about ideas and treatments between groups of people who thought they knew what the farmers wanted, better than the farmer did - does the word politics come to mind? Particularly farmers, who were dealing with a clash of several ideas about who a farmer was, what he was supposed to do, and what he should get for doing it. The names of the combatants do not nearly measure up to the ideals over which they were warring. Even the index has more to do with the conflict than the people conflicting, or the ideals involved. An interesting read! PRICE $20

 

Wow! There are some of the most valuable books to genealogists on this crate I have ever seen! This lady sure knew how to choose her books, didn't she? Thanks again to her for sharing her books and for giving me the opportunity to get them into the hands of fellow genealogists who will love using them to add detail to their own family surnames and hopefully will pass them on to others who will gain information on their surnames that will help us tie all these surnames together in one big, happy family!

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!
