BOOKS - Irish Genealogy Series - Cemetery and Burial Records
By Dr. David R. Elliott
Published by David R. Elliott, Parkhill, 2008-present
Dr. David R. Elliott travels to Ireland each summer to transcribe Irish records and to persue family history research for his many clients. He has compiled a series of cemetery transcription books mainly focusing on County Fermanagh, and County Cavan, County Donegal, County Tyrone & County Wicklow. Each of the cemetery books include an Introduction which provides a detailed description of the cemetery, a brief historical sketch, and any peculiarities about the cemetery. His acknowledgement pages are interesting insofar as they go beyond recognizing help received from specific individuals, to expand on details of the project assistance. Next are colour photographs of the cemeteries, and of churches when present, including colour map/s of the area, and the cemetery plan. The transcriptions are done to a professional standard. Dr. Elliott expends great effort to access ALL surviving stones, including digging up sod to reveal buried stones (some titles include photographs of especially challenging recoveries).

BOOK - Kith and Kin, The Continuing Legacy of the Scotch-Irish in America    
By Alister McReynolds
Published by Colourpoint Books, United Kingdom, 2013
Author Alister McReynolds presents a collection of life stories that serves to highlight that the Scotch-Irish contribution to life in United States of America was, and is, more valuable and less of a cliche than the images of rascality, motor sports and corn liquor suggest. The stories of these pioneers, clergy, cavalry men, presidents, and inventors show how the achievements of these characters have pervaded American society to an extent that is often unnoticed and under-appreciated even amongst the Scotch-Irish communities themselves.

BOOK - It Runs in the Family, Understanding More About Your Ancestors    
By Ruth A. Symes
Published by The History Press, UK, 2013
In the quest to uncover our family history, we turn to written records, the family album and even heirlooms. However, they can often be difficult to interpret and sometimes pose more questions than they answer: Why didn’t my ancestors smile for the camera? Why did great-grandfather wear a beard while his sons were clean-shaven? Why is my great-grandmother holding flowers in this photograph? Drawing on evidence from social history, women’s history, and the histories of photography, art and fashion, and using examples from the lowly as well as the famous, Ruth Symes explores many aspects of ordinary life in the past – from the state of the nation’s teeth, to the legal and economic connotations of wearing a wedding ring and even the business of keeping a dog. This fascinating volume aims to help family historians get to know their elusive ancestors by deciphering the wealth of personal and historical clues contained in photographs, documents and artefacts.

BOOK - Tracing Your Twentieth-Century Ancestors, A Guide For Family Historians    United Kingdom
By Karen Bali
Published by Pen and Sword Books, S. Yorkshire, UK
The recent past is so often neglected when people research their family history, yet it can be one of the most rewarding periods to explore, and so much fascinating evidence is available. The rush of events over the last century and the rapid changes that have taken place in every aspect of life have been dramatic, and the lives of family members of only a generation or two ago may already appear remote. That is why Karen Bali’s informative and accessible guide to investigating your immediate ancestors is essential reading, and a handy reference for anyone who is trying to trace them or discover the background to their lives. In a sequence of concise, fact-filled chapters she looks back over the key events of the twentieth century and identifies the sources that can give researchers an insight into the personal stories of individuals who lived through it. She explains census and civil records, particularly those of the early twentieth century, and advises readers on the best way to get relevant information from directories and registers as well as wills and other personal documents.

BOOK - Tracing Your Servant Ancestors, A Guide For Family Historians    United Kingdom
By Michelle Higgs
Published by Pen and Sword Books, S. Yorkshire, UK
While there are popular and academic books on servants and domestic service, as well as television dramas and documentaries, little attention has been paid to the sources family historians can use to explore the lives and careers of their servant ancestors. Michelle Higgs's accessible and authoritative handbook has been written to serve just this purpose. Covering the period from the eighteenth century through to the Second World War, her survey gives a fascinating insight into the conditions of domestic service and the experience of those who worked within it. She quotes examples from the sources to show exactly how they can be used to trace individuals. Chapters cover the historical background of domestic service; the employers; the social hierarchy within the servant class; and the recruitment and responsibilities of servants.

BOOK - Tracing Your Welsh Ancestors, A Guide For Family Historians    
By Beryl Evans
Published by Pen and Sword Books, S. Yorkshire, UK
Few previous publications have focused on Welsh family history, and none have provided a comprehensive guide to the genealogical information available and where to find it. That is why the publication of Beryl Evans's new Welsh family history handbook is such a significant event in the field. Her detailed, accessible, authoritative guide will be essential reading and reference for anyone who is eager to research ancestors from Wales. She describes the key archival sources and shows how the development of new technology, the internet in particular, has made them so much easier to explore. Drawing on her long experience of family history work, she gives clear practical advice on how to start a research project, and she sketches in the outlines of Welsh history, Welsh surnames and place-names and the Welsh language.

BOOK - Hope Restored: The American Revolution and the Founding of New Brunswick    
By Robert Dallison
Published by Goose Lane Editions, Fredericton, NB
Few Canadians realize how close the colony of Nova Scotia came to joining the American Revolutionary War in 1775. Many Nova Scotians were immigrants from New England, including the Planters who, some twenty years earlier, had taken over the farms of the expelled Acadians. Between family ties and unrestrained privateering, there was much sympathy in Nova Scotia for the American Patriots. In Hope Restored, Robert Dallison tells the story of how the British raised two regiments and sent their members to the area that, as a result, became New Brunswick, thus overcoming the groundswell and fending off Patriot attacks. These soldiers had two jobs: to fight the Americans, and to settle the land as a bulwark against invasion. Spem reduxit (hope restored) became their motto and the motto of the province they founded ISBN 9780864923714     More Information

BOOK - A Swarm of Bees - Lanark Society Settlers 1800-1900, A Journey from Scotland to Upper Canada and Utah   
By Ron W. Shaw
Published by Global Heritage Press, Ottawa, 2018
A Swarm of Bees recounts a journey begun in 1820 that, over the course of 50 years, took 18 ‘Lanark Society Settler’ families from the slums of Glasgow to the Great Salt Lake Valley. These pioneer families, who first settled in what is now Lanark County, Ontario, were among the earliest converts to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Their story unfolds in the context of the founding and earliest days of the Mormon Church, as they follow their new faith through the Ohio and Missouri settlements, to Nauvoo Illinois, the refugee camps of Council Bluffs Iowa, and finally along the Mormon Trail to Utah. To the greatest extent possible the author allows those who knew them, and those who traveled with them, to speak in their own voices across the intervening years. Shaw has sought out a multitude of voices, both of the living and of the long gone, and reported on what he found among them.

By John McDonald, A Lanark Society Settler, 1821
Originally published by author, Edinburgh, 1823
This edition published by Global Heritage Press, Ottawa, 2018

John McDonald emigrated from Scotland to Lanark in Upper Canada (Ontario) in the Spring of 1821, during the second year of the assisted emigration scheme known as The Lanark Society Settlers. John McDonald's account provides first person insight into what early settlers encountered during their journey to a better life for themselves and their families. Though tinged with the negativity of his own experience, McDonald breathes life into our understanding of the obstacles that our ancestors overcame. Most of The Lanark Society Settlers stayed, weathered the discomfort of pioneering, and found a way to succeed in their new land.. ISBN 978-1-772400441     More information

By John Wintrip
Published by Pen and Sword Books, S. Yorkshire, UK, 2018
The Georgian period – 1714 to 1837 – was a key stage in our modern history so some understanding of it is essential for family historians who want to push their research back into the eighteenth century and beyond, and John Wintrip's handbook is an invaluable introduction to it. In a sequence of concise, insightful chapters he focuses on those aspects of the period that are particularly relevant to genealogical research and he presents a detailed guide to the variety of sources that readers can consult as they pursue their research.

So the author provides not only a historical overview of relevant topics but he also describes the records of the period in detail. This expert guide to researching the Georgians will open up the field for experienced researchers and for newcomers alike. ISBN 9781473859999     More Information

BOOK - Tracing Your Ancestors Through Local History Records, A Guide For Family Historians    [United Kingdom]
By Dr Jonathan Oates
Published by Pen and Sword Books, S. Yorkshire, UK, 2016

BOOK - Researching Scots-Irish Ancestors - SECOND EDITION, The Essential Genealogical Guide to Early Modern Ulster, 1600-1800 [northern Ireland]
By William Roulston
Published by Ulster Historical Foundation, Belfast, 2018
More than twice the content of the original edition. When the first edition of this book appeared in 2005 it was quickly recognised as an essential work of reference for family historians researching Ulster ancestors in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. It filled an important gap in providing reliable guidance on sources for perhaps the most critical period in understanding a family’s links with the north of Ireland. This is territory where some family historians fear to tread. But they need not. This guide opens up avenues for research; drawing attention to the riches of archives inside and outside of the island of Ireland, demonstrating the benefit of often undervalued, rare, even quite unconventional, yet accessible sources – if you know where to look – which can help document your ancestors back to the 1600s. Whether your ancestors are of English, Scottish or Gaelic Irish background, whether their religious affiliation was Episcopalian, Methodist, Presbyterian, Catholic or other, whether they were farmers, merchants or labourers, this volume will be of enormous value to anyone wishing to find out more about their Ulster roots.

BOOK - For Want of His Silver Plate, Sir John Johnson's Raid of May 1780   
By Gavin K. Watt
Published by Global Heritage Press, Ottawa, 2018
It is unknown when Sir John Johnson first contemplated a major raid into his homeland of Tryon County’s Mohawk District. After evading capture in May 1776, he had anticipated a very short exile in Quebec and a triumphant return to the family seat of Johnson Hall, but that was not to be. For Want of His Silver Plate relates the history of Sir John Johnson's raid of 1780, providing much detail about individual events and people. Beyond the value of the narrative, the lists included in the Appendices will be of great value to military historians and genealogists alike. ISBN 978-1-77240-119-6 (bound)     More Information
