More Great Resources

    As many of you know, I am what many have called a square since high school. I don't remember the last time I read a fiction book, reading New England history, food history, the history of New England towns and anything related to our great Yankee culture. But primarily the way of life of the toiler and poorer class. The richer families of New England simply do not interest me because as someone once said, if the world were to begin all over again, only the hard working people of the past, and even presently, would know how to begin life anew. 

   Think about it for a moment. Take a banker from Boston for example. If he had to feed his family from scratch by planting, sowing, reaping, drying, preparing and canning....could he do it? If an article of clothing needed to be made from scratch, could they do it? The list could go on and on and .......

   And then we have our history that so many are trying to erase now. If this idiotic tread continues, we will have no knowledge in which to learn from our mistakes of the past. I adore history, whether it offends the delicate sensibilities of some or not. 

   Having giving my two cents worth, here are some fascinating reads for those of you who think as I do. These links are chalk full of interesting information of our Yankee ancestors and are an invaluable tool in research as well. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did, and still do very often.

   This first one is the project Gutenburg of New England Prospect, by William Wood. It is a first hand account of every day life of our pre-colonial ancestors.

Invaluable Information

 Many, and I mean MANY, people think I am either a bore or a "square"(as we used to say back in the 70s) because I am at my most peaceful and serene mood when I sit down to a great book. And to me, a great book is anything to do with New England history. I love reading about small town New England, its people, origins, food, way of life and all things ancient. But there is a little catch. I love hearing and reading about life in olden times through the eyes of the toiler, the poorer class. It was on the backs of these hard working individuals, along with their families, that our nation thrived through some very difficult times, something the richer class would have been completely baffled by. After all, if your home and life was upended because of some type of natural disaster, do you honestly think someone who hired out their daily chores would be able to begin anew again, without the help of hired hands? Nah.....
So here are two links to some great books I am currently reading. Not only do they give the black and white names, dates and locations of the earliest of Yankee Land settlers, but much much more. I hope you enjoy this trip to the past as much as I am while reading and I think it will help the struggling amateur genealogist tear down a brick wall or two in your trip back in time. The links are free to read online with no gimmicks. Just click and read!

The first is the Essex Antiquarian, a 13 book series on all the first settlers of New England, along with many genealogies and descendants of them.

The second is Soldiers in the Expedition to Canada in 1690 and Grantees of the Canada Townships, by Walter Kendall Watkins.
This book, too, is freely available to read online and contains some lost information that many may find very interesting, especially when it comes to who contributed to the Indian Wars of the time. Just a phenomenal read.

An Amazing Journey....Rereleased

 https://www.amazon.com/Amazing-Journey-Wondrous-Trek-Through/dp/179644247X



     Please find above a link to my rerelease of the biggest seller to date of all my books. I realize that I am not the best at proofreading and I have heard back from some of you that Abnormal Behavior and Why Do Ghosts Wear Clothes have a few typos that I overlooked. I can assure you that every one of my books should be error and typo-free now. But what I am most proud of is my rerelease of An Amazing Journey.

     I rereleased it because since the publication of it, I kept getting more and more information from Bailey family members from here in the United States and England  So when I received it, of course I had to look into this and was astonished at all the new stories, lore and historic data that I just overlooked previously. In this rerelease, I explore the Holy Grail story, the real Robin Hood and dive into William Wallace(Braveheart)and the the ongoing controversy surrounding his daughter. 

     All these stories with one thing in common, the Baliol, Baillieul, Baillie family! Understand one thing. As I mention at the beginning of this book, I have absolutely no preconceived idea when researching. That is a dangerous thing because all you want to do it "make to fit" any information you have. I could care less about the status of my family through the ages. I am even more proud of the poor Bailey families because they actually had to work hard to put food on the table. 

     So sit back and enjoy a whole new world that has just opened up if you are related to the Bailey Family of England, Wales and beyond. If you aren't, this book will get you thinking about these enigma's and the lives of people during the middle ages.

And by the way, if you have children, take a look at my foray into childrens literature as well in this unique story/coloring book of stories, poems and limericks of our past that should not ever be forgotten. Let's Not Forget. Children's Classics of our Past
