NY1 - NEW YORK COMPOSITE -CRAZY CRATE NY1:  BOOK 3:  THE NEW YORK FOUNDLING HOSPITAL AN INDEX TO ITS FEDERAL, STATE, AND LOCAL CENSUS RECORDS 1870-1925.  ©1995  By Carolee R. Inskeep.  Clearfield, softbound wrappers, 339 pages  approximately 5.5 by 8.5 inches.  [NOTE:  She did the Cemetery Book on New York City listed above.  Included in this book are the censuses of this institution that took in the orphaned and homeless children of New York.  Here are their names, 13,000 of them.  Some made their way to the Midwest on the orphan trains.  Some found families, some ran away, some got lost and some just got older anyway they could.  Many of them have descendants living in the Midwest now.  Each name in this book has a story to tell.  Many of these children grew up with fine adoptive parents, but their lack of knowing about their past haunted them all their lives.  Families were often broken up and the children spent their adult lives looking for brothers and sisters they remembered, but could not find.  Censuses covered are 1870 Federal Census, 1880 Federal Census, 1890 New York City Police Census, 1900 Federal Census, 1905 NY State Census, 1910 Federal Census, 1915 NY State Census, 1920 Federal Census and 1925 NY State Census.  Information available differs with each census but may include name, race, gender, *  indicates name or gender may be incorrectly listed, age at last birthday in years or months, MOB (month of birth) if born in census year, Relationship of each person to the institution, mostly as inmate.  All persons listed as single, birthplace of each child listed as NY, parents listed as unknown for the children.  This home was founded by the Archbishop of NY for the many children whose parents had "gone away, never to return." The first infant arrived Oct. 11, 1869, the second later that night, left upon the stoop during a rainstorm. By the end of the first month the Sisters of Charity had 45 children.  By 1873 they were located in a large complex filling the block and 5 stories high.  Eventually the overcrowding was somewhat alleviated by the orphan trains which took huge numbers of them west.  New $27.50.  Now sale priced at $22.
NY1 - NEW YORK COMPOSITE - CRAZY CRATE NY1:  BOOK 4:  HISTORIC HOMES AND INSTITUTIONS AND GENEALOGICAL AND FAMILY HISTORIES OF NEW YORK.  SET OF FOUR VOLUMES.  By William S. Pelletreau.  A. M. Member of Long Island Historical Society, Author of Old New York Houses, Early Long Island Wills, Records of Southampton, Long Island, History of Smithtown, Long Island, etc, etc.  Illustrated.  Volume I has 402 pages, Volume II has 402 pages, Volume III has 329 pages and Volume IV has 346 pages which thankfully, include an index.  This is a two-column index with 60 names to a column, 120 names to a page and only 10 pages or about 1,200 names.  I could not, for a minute figure how he could have such a small index for such a large set of books!  A closer look at the book enlightened me, as it always does.  The entry read "Alexander Family V.3,P243 and it covers 8 more pages which include at least 26 members of that family with full notes on their military service, their wives, their businesses, their children, even their classmates at school and their in-laws!  Now 1,200 FAMILIES with that much information is a different kettle of fish entirely!  The detail in this book is astounding.  It is obvious this man knew members of the family or had their help in documenting their lives.  Having written so many books he had the materials to put these family sketches together.  There are differing amounts of information about the various families, but you could fill out at least four generations of the Alexander family tree from this information and would be able to start at least a dozen plus family group sheets!  Here are some of the families covered in this set of books.  The scanty index should be replaced with an every-name index which would, probably, be over 600 pages long.  I am just so sorry that none of my ancestors ever lived in New York!  Index contains information on the following surnames plus others not indexed here which appear for only a page or two:  Abbott,  Alexander, Anderson, Androvette, Arnow, Avery, Barklage, Barto, Bayard, Baylies, Bedlow, Beekman, Bell, Blake, Bloodgood, Bogardus, Bogart-De Bost, Bogart, Bowne, Brinkerhoff, Brohmer, Brower, Brown, Bryant, Burbank, Burger, Burling, Butler, Campbell, Cheesebrough, Christoffell, Christopher, [Note:  In this index there is a place where about 125 Churches are identified and listed with volume and page numbers.] Churchill, Clarke, Clinton, DeWitt, Clinton Family, Clinton-Jones, Coddington, Cole, Cozzino, Crawford, Crooke, Crowell, Cutting, Darcey, Davies, Dayton, De Bost, Decker (19 entries), DeHart, Delafield (25 entries), Diering, Dixon, Doherty, Dresser, DuBois (25 entries), Duryea (6 entries), Ellis (6 entries),  Ely (5 entries), Embree, Fish (5 entries), Flake, Floyd, Fordham (6 entries), Fox, Franklin, Franz, Gerard, Gilham, Glover, Goelet, Goodwin, Gouvernour, Grafe, Harigan, Hart, Hawkins, Hendricksons, Hewlett, Hill, Horton (46 entries!), Howell (14 entries), Hurry (9 entries), Johnson (5 entries), Jones, Kelsey,  Kenyon (5 entries), King, Knight, Lawrence, Lawton,  LeRoy, L'Hommedieu, Livingston, Lowenbein, Lydig, Mersereau (6 entries), Mesier, Miller, [Note: The distinguished ancestry of Clement C. Moore who received one line in the index (V.3,P203) which caught my eye and since I, like all other children at heart, love that poem, I looked up the reference.  Finally found him mentioned with the poem on Page 208!  So, 1 page in the index produced 5 pages and about five generations of ancestry for him.  The poem was written in 1822 as a Christmas gift to his children, first given out to a paper by a friend of the family to be printed Dec. 23, 1823, and has warmed the hearts of children, no matter their age, ever  since.  See why I love my job!]  Back to the index! Morgan, Morris (5 entries), Newins, Nicoll-Churchill, Nicoll, Payne, Philipse, Philipse-Gouverneur (7 entries), Phillips, Rapelye (5 entries), Ray. Richter, Riuker (8 entries), Robertson, Sandford, Schieffelin (17 entries), Schmachtenberg, Schuyler, Seaver, Shirley, Shultes, Simonson, Skidmore, Smith (7 entries), Steiner, St. John, Stoll, Talmadge (8 entries), Tappen, Tietjen, Tiffany (7 entries), Timpson (6 entries), Townsend, Van Buren (5 entries), Van Cortland, Vanderbilt, Van Horn, Van Rensselaer, Walsh (5 entries), Walton, Wandell, Weeks (5 entries), White, Whitten, Willett, Williams, and Wyeth (5 entries).  Wow!  Set is New $150. Now sale priced at $120.
God bless the folks who make, sell and repair air conditioners!  I love sitting in our nice warm-in-the-winter and air-conditioned in-the-summer, humidity-controlled-year-around-well-lighted shop.  I can't believe it has been this hot for this long ever before!

If you have ancestors from New York, this book is the key to getting the records you need to prove it.
He begins with a short, concise but comprehensive coverage of NY history and geography as it applies to your ancestor, and therefore to you-the genealogist.  The historic and geographical background can be so important as to where they came from and where they went next after NY.  Chapter 2 covers 35 different types of records detailing what they are, where they are kept and how you get copies.  Chapter 3 delves into the mysteries of the locations of large quantities of records collected for genealogists to use.  Chapter 4 concerns research procedures and includes special notes on New York City Research.  Chapter 5 is always my favorite.  This chapter goes county-by-county and details the types of records available in that county.  All-in-all, for any state Dr. Schweitzer has done; his book will be the best guidebook written to assist you with your work.

NY1 - NEW YORK COMPOSITE - CRAZY CRATE  NY1:  BOOK 8:  CORRESPONDENCE 1647-1653.  NEW NETHERLANDS DOCUMENTS SERIES, VOLUME XI.  Translated and Edited by Charles T. Gehring, Syracuse University Press, ©2000 The Holland Society of New York.  273 pages, hardbound.  This is the translation of Peter Stuyvesant's Papers of Correspondence in the first six years of his seventeen-year tenure as director general of New Netherland.  This period spans the final years of the war with Spain through the first war with England.  These were letters written at the time by someone in a position of power and responsibility.  He dealt on a regular basis with important people.
I have chosen a few to list about which he wrote:  Isaac Allerton, Anthony Allert, Harald Appleboom, Claes Backer, Andries Barentsz, George Baxter, Judith Batard, Sir William Berkeley, Andrean Bloemart, William Bradford, Oliver Cromwell, Theapolis Eaton, John Endicott.  I will stop here at the Es, but the list of the important kings and governors and everyday people with real personal problems it took political savvy to solve are in here.  He wrote letters to and received letters from kings, governors, princes and common men who were petitioning for favors wanted, paid for favors or wanted to do him a favor.  The rich and the famous, the movers and shakers, the criminal and the scalawag all kept his mind busy and his pen scratching out answers for most of the time during his tenure.  You get a real feeling for what was going on in the colony at this time in history.  PRICE  $75 now 20% off $60
