Month Day Year September 10, 2010

SEPTEMBER 10, 2010

First, my apologies to you, my readers, for not having a Crazy Crate ready for you this last Tuesday.  Holidays usually wear me out, but this one REALLY did me in!

A book-reading friend of mine had called me and we made arrangements to take advantage of Half-Price Books big Labor Day Sale.  There are three stores in the Metropolitan Indianapolis area, widely separated, of course.  Two are on the north side and one on the south side. 

We had breakfast here at home at about nine o'clock on Monday morning, then started to the closest one up north and west of my house.  We spent two hours on our feet there producing three bags of books.  Then to the one on the far west side, which is my favorite because it is the largest of the three, thereby producing two more bags and one huge box of books and three hours on my feet.
We ate a late lunch at the McL Cafeteria at Castleton where our Van Treese family holds our whole family's Christmas Party the first Sunday afternoon in December with about forty or more of Grandpa Joseph Henry Van Treese and his second wife Susan Elizabeth Chlorinda McClure Van Treese's 13 children, and grandchildren and great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren all meet and eat our family dinner!  We have lots of kids that come. That's good!

Last we headed south to the last book store, which is on the south side, and with which I am the most familiar because they have lots of children's books which I purchased for my classroom up until I retired in 1999.  At that time, many of them were priced at 25 cents each, and I bought lots for my classroom.  That way, if a child fell in love with a book, I could let him/her take it home with him.

Now I search for the children's books I buy for my two great-granddaughters for Christmas at very reasonable prices.  As a first, second or fourth grade teacher for over thirty-six years, I know if you give a child enough books, read to him while he is young, he will be chomping at the bit to learn to read for his/her own pleasure and he/she will bug you until you teach him the sounds of the letters so he can read it to and for him/herself whenever he/she wants to hear it and you are not there or are too busy to read it to him.

Ray and I had no trouble teaching our children to read because if we had any free time they could see us curled up with a good book.  We all had our favorite chair in which we snuggled up with a good book anytime we could, and I still do.

That was two more hours on my feet and two more bags of books.  Needless to say, after the company left, it was too late to do a crate.
That day was so much fun, but, oh! did I ever ache when I awoke the next morning!

So here is my apology to you for missing out on Tuesday's crate.  If I told you that I did not even think about Tuesday following Monday, you might think I was growing old, but I am not because I know that -no matter how many birthdays I have -  OLD is always twenty years older than I am!  So there!

Thanks for taking your time to look at our Crazy Crates.  You never can tell when a surname will jump out at you and you will have found a book with some real help for you on your families.

I had so much fun shopping those book sales I decded to share the fun with you, so here is your SALE crate!  ENJOY!  Books have been marked down for sale on this newsletter.  Order now for the best selection of these new and used books.  For many of these, but not all, we have more than one or in some cases, we have dozens of them.

Collins, Summit Publications, 1993 Edition.  NEW copies.  Before 1922 for 700 years, the British ruled all of Ireland.  Irishmen like to believe that their ancestors constantly struggled against the British rule.  This is not entirely true.  Until modern times, the nineteenth century, the resistance was not always consistent, nor was it concerted.  Many people who came to Ireland as Englishmen, the oppressors, later became the oppressed, as they became absorbed into Ireland.  It is said of some of these Englishmen that they became more Irish than the Irish themselves.  The Table of Contents speaks first of the Irish immigration from their previous homelands.  Then, next came the Irish History and the Land.  He starts you on your research with the Chapter: Begin Your Research into Your Irish Family in the U.S.
Then it is Off to Ireland, by Internet, or telephone, by letter, through computer, book and microfiche.  There are 19 illustrations in this user-friendly book.  Lots of large print for those of us who are optically challenged!  A great way to begin or augment your search and our special SALE - A - THON book.  You can buy this great 75 page, 11 by 17 inch book [folded to 8.5 by 11 inches per page] book for, not its regular price of $10, but for only $8.  Order before September 30 to get this bargain!  This book tells you how to, this book tells you where to, and why to and when-to and it is also on sale!  What could be nicer!  Order for only $8 by September 30, and find that lucky Irish family of yours!  WAS $10.  Now priced with 20% off at $8!

Immigrant Research-CRAZY CRATE YOGS70 :  BOOK 2:  SEARCHING FOR YOUR IMMIGRANT ANCESTOR.  By Fran Carter-Walker.  ©2000.  NEW Printing.  90 pages, cardstock cover, stapled three times. She starts with the basics.  On the first page she defines Migration as [the act] of moving within a country from one place to another.  Emigration is the act of moving out of a country.  Immigration is the act of moving into a new country.  Associated with these is Naturalization which is the act and process of Becoming a Citizen in the new country.  Twenty-two Chapters lead you through the process - backwards, of course - from their arrival here back to their departure from the old country.  She identifies the sources you will need to know about and in every day English tells you what to do to be successful.  This author leads you to the sources, tells you how to use them and then guides you to the next step.  Years of being successful as a teacher and researcher have brought her tremendous success and her books have helped others to be successful too.  This book, ordinarily priced at $18 is another SALE-A-THON SPECIAL at only $14.40 until September 30.    Now priced with 20% off at $14.40!  Several copies are available.
