Black Regulars in the War of 1812 Black Regulars in the War of 1812
Black Regulars and Militiamen in the War of 1812. 
The Black American soldier was a rarity between the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. When Congress passed the Militia Act of 1792, it required that “every free able-bodied white male citizen” join his state militia. It is implied that non-whites could not participate in the militia but it left open the possibility that non-whites could join the U.S. Army. The U.S. Army did permit Blacks to serve in the army, but only as cooks or officer’s servants between the two wars. Cracks in these restrictions appeared for a short time during the War of 1812. Congress passed An Act for Completing the Existing Military Establishment on 24 December 1811 in which it was stated that only “able bodied men” may be recruited in the army. No restrictions for race will appear in any military legislation passed during the War of 1812. Without proper rules and regulations governing this issue of recruiting Black soldiers, some commanders in the army did recruit Blacks. This work identifies 455 Black men who enlisted in the U.S. Army during the War of 1812 and another 662 Blacks who served as militiamen in a number of state militias. This book is an expanded version of the author’s original book, Black Regulars in the War of 1812, which was first published in 2015. Mr. Johnson is a lineal descendant of five veterans of the War of 1812 and he is the past president of the Society of the War of 1812 in the State of Ohio (2008-2011). He is currently the Archivist General for the General Society of the War of 1812 and has served as the Historian General for this society.

Canton of Graubunden Canton of Graubunden
Map Guide to Swiss Parish Registers, Canton of Graubunden
Unlike American genealogical research, where the place to search is usually a civil registration (city, county, and state), European research is usually related to an ecclesiastical jurisdiction. In 18th and 19th century Switzerland, one must search the parish registers for births, christenings, marriages, deaths and burials. The historic boundaries for the Swiss cantons and amtsbezirke are quite well defined, and this volume lays them out in map form. Listings are given for both Catholic and Protestant parishes, along with what records are available and where to access them. Contact information, and the municipalities covered by each parish is found, making your Swiss research much easier to accomplish.

Directory of Scots in the Carolinas Directory of Scots in the Carolinas
VOL 2. We have volume one and this is an addition.
The great 18th-century Scottish emigration to the Carolinas was a response, in large part, to the failure of the Jacobite rebellion in 1715, a phenomenon which set in motion a chain emigration of Scottish Lowlanders, followed by one of Highlanders. Publication of David Dobson’s Directory of Scots in the Carolinas, 1680-1830 in 1986 was the first attempt to build a comprehensive list of Scottish settlers in that region. Since 1986, Mr. Dobson has gathered an overwhelming amount of new information on early Scottish immigrants to North and South Carolina based on his research in Scotland, England, and the U.S., but especially at the National Archives in Scotland. This sequel to the 1986 volume encases those findings. In all, the compiler has found evidence on nearly 1,000 Scots not mentioned in the original work and, for the most part, not found in his other publications on Scottish emigration. As one might expect from such a disparate body of sources, the descriptions of these Scots vary considerably, though there is a solid foundation of genealogical detail: age, place and date of birth, and often names of parents, names of spouses and children, occupation, place of residence, and date of emigration from Scotland. This is an important addition to the literature of Scottish emigration to colonial America, and, given the difficulty of identifying the participants in this extraordinary emigration, one worth waiting for.

German Immigrants  in American Church Records German Immigrants in American Church Records
German Immigrants in American Church Records - Vol. 31: Southern Ohio Protestant; Edited by Roger P. Minert; Ph.D., A.G.; October 2020; 630 pp; Hard Cover; Every-name index; Acid Free Paper; ISBN 978-1-62859-267-2; Item #FR0667.
Dr. Minert and a team of researchers at BYU are currently involved in a project wherein they read and extract Americans' German vital records from historic local church vital records. These church records often pinpoint German origins in the "old country." Places and dates of birth, marriage, and previous residence in Germany are commonly found in these records. Dr. Minert estimates that 65-76 percent of historic local church records give an immigrant's exact place of birth. Entries found in the volumes include people born in Switzerland and Austria.

Indiana - Vermillion County
Newspaper Extracts from The Hoosier State, Newport, Vermillion County, Indiana, January 1, 1874 to December 30, 1875 Paperback – February 18, 2015

One of the earliest newspapers for Vermillion County, Indiana, was the Hoosier State. It was bought by Samuel Brenton Davis from Henry D. Washburn in 1868. It was published weekly. The early issues contained practically no local news, their space given to politics and world news. Only rarely was a death given, or a marriage, and then in the shortest possible manner. The retail advertising was almost entirely of Terre Haute stores. The style of the newspaper gradually changed and in the 1870s, local births, marriages, deaths, and business happenings began to appear. In addition to the abundance of names and relationships, news articles tell us a lot about the customs, lifestyles, and priorities of the times. Voter lists, orphan records, lists of unclaimed letters, teacher and student lists, real estate transfers, and court happenings are among the items covered. In the 1880s, several correspondents from the local towns sent in local news.

New Jersey- Monmouth County New Jersey- Monmouth County
Inventors in Monmouth County, New Jersey, United States Patent Office
 
An inventor is a person who gets an idea and acts upon it. Are you curious, creative, determined and a doer? You may be an inventor too! In this book, Joynson looks at the lives of the inventors of Monmouth County, New Jersey. It didn’t take very long for a Monmouth County resident to get in on the US Patent Act of 1790. In 1792, Obadiah Herbert, of Pleasant Valley, met with Thomas Jefferson, the first Patent Board examiner, who approved Herbert’s patent for “Spinning and twisting thread.” In the 1930s, a Fair Haven inventor, called the “Father of Radio Astronomy,” was also a champion ping pong player. A colonel at Fort Monmouth waited twelve years for his patent on radar to be approved. You’ll find stories like this, some famous, some not-so-famous, with in-depth background information, pictures never seen before, and much more inside. Patent research is a much overlooked genealogy resource. The US Patent Office database contains over 9.5 million patents. Many descendants contacted during this project were unaware of their ancestor’s patent. If you haven’t checked, you may be surprised to find your ancestor listed among them. An appendix, a bibliography and an index to full-names, places and subjects add to the value of this work.

New York - Schuyler County New York - Schuyler County
Marriage and Death Notices from Schuyler County, New York Newspapers by Mary & Edward F. Jackson.
 
This volume contains marriage and death notices abstracted from microfilm copies of newspapers available at the New York State Library. Information has been abstracted from the Havana Journal (1853-1887), the Watkins Democrat (1878-1900), the Watkins Express (1871-1900), and the Watkins Review (1896-1900). These newspapers were all published in Schuyler County, New York, but they include many notices for people living in the nearby counties of Seneca, Cayuga, Yates, Tompkins, Tioga, Chemung, and Steuben, as well as for people who moved out of state. Vital records were recorded by the Town Clerk in New York State beginning in 1885, however not all marriages and deaths were recorded until 1906 when it became mandatory. This book also contains difficult-to-find vital records that pre-date 1885. A surname index adds to the value of this work. 192 pages

North Carolina - First Families of
Order of the First Families of North Carolina. Registry of Ancestors Vol. 1 - 3
 
TWO volumes adopted - only ONE left!
 
Membership in the distinguished Order of the First Families of North Carolina requires having an ancestor who lived in North Carolina before it became a royal colony on July 12, 1729. The work at hand--the first in a series (see also Volume 2: The Descendants of John (d. 1692) and Thomas Williams (D. 1693) of Isle of Wight County)--proposes to describe the genealogy of the organization's qualifying ancestors. Undertaken with the blessings of the Order of the First Families, most of Mr. Brayton's genealogies follow the ancestor's family for a full first and second generation, down to the fourth, with drop-charts describing descent to members. The ancestors in Volume 1 are: John Alston, Sr., of Chowan Co., NC; William Bennett of Northampton Co.; John and James Drake of Bertie County, NC, and John Collins; Governor William Drummond; Nathaniel Everett of Tyrell Co.; William Bridgers, John Cotton, Osborne and Simon Jeffreys; Captain John Speir, William Whitehead; Benjamin Laker of Perquimans Co, NC.; John Mann II; Thomas Mann II; Dr. Godfrey Spruill; Ann Walker; Henry Norman I and II; and Thomas Vinson of Surry Co., VA and Northampton Co., NC. The author documents all his sources, chapter by chapter, and includes abstracts and transcriptions of the original documents supporting his findings. The introduction includes a learned essay that explains the particular problems posed by the sources for documenting each qualifying ancestry. Inclusive of a full name index, place index, slave index, registry of ancestors, and a current bibliography, this inaugural volume refers to over 17,000 ancestors and their descendants. Destined to stand alongside John Dorman's impeccable Adventurers of Purse and Person, its Virginia counterpart, the Order of First Families of North Carolina, Registry of Ancestors, is must reading for anyone interested in the genealogical origins of the Tarheel State.

North Carolina Revolutionary North Carolina Revolutionary
Rebels & King's Men: Bertie County in the Revolutionary War
 
Rebels and King's Men documents the contributions of Bertie citizens to the war effort and chronicles their service and sacrifices. Men from the county served in significant numbers in North Carolina's Continental Line regiments and companies of the county's detached militia. Contrarily, a segment of the populace devoutly supported King George III and became entwined in a Loyalist conspiracy that sprouted in the northeastern region of North Carolina during the spring and summer of 1777. The plot, once exposed within Bertie and neighboring counties, was quickly and thoroughly crushed by Whig leaders. Rebels and King's Men portrays the overall dedication of a small rural community to freedom and democracy--the underpinnings of the American experience.

The Mayflower Migration The Mayflower Migration
The Mayflower Migration by Robert Charles Anderson
This sixteenth book in the Great Migration Study Project opens with an essay on what led up to the sailing of the Mayflower and continues through its departure from Plymouth, England, describing the groups who made up the passenger list and how they were reshuffled when the Speedwell was abandoned. Following on the success of his most recent book Puritan Pedigrees—which revealed the “why” of the Great Migration to New England—Anderson now returns to the “who” and expands on the 60 sketches that appear in The Pilgrim Migration (2004) by adding newly discovered material, including biographies of about 30 passengers for whom we have info about their lives before they sailed. Like all of Anderson’s books, this work will be a must-have for all New England researchers.
