510 Doug Keister Stories in Stone: A Field Guide to Cemetery Symbolism and Iconography
Gibbs Smith Publishers 1-58685-321-X paperback / softcover 256 pages, 4 1/2 x 9, paperback / softcover, Gibbs Smith Publishers 
Certain symbols abound in modern Western culture that are instantly recognizable: the cross signifies Christianity, the six-pointed Star of David is revered by Jews, the golden arches sometimes means it's time for lunch. Other symbols, however, require a bit of decoding--particularly those symbols found in cemeteries. Cemeteries are virtual encyclopedias of symbolism. Engravings on tombstones, mausoleums and memorials tell us just about everything there is to know about a person- date of birth and death as well as religion, ethnicity, occupation, community interests, and much more. In the fascinating new book Stories in Stone: A Field Guide to Cemetery Symbolism and Iconography by noted author Douglas Keister, the secrets of cemetery symbolism are finally revealed. For instance, did you know that it is quite rare to see a sunflower on a tombstone? Did you know that the human foot symbolizes humility and service since it consistently touches the earth? Or the humble sheaf of wheat-while it is often used to denote someone who has lived a long and fruitful life, do you know other meanings it might carry?

Stories in Stone provides history along with images of a wide variety of common and not-so-common cemetery symbols, and offers an in-depth examination of stone relics and the personal and intimate details they display-flora and fauna, religious icons, society symbols, and final impressions of how the deceased wished to be remembered. Douglas Keister has created a practical field guide that is compact and portable, perfect for those interested in family histories and genealogical research, and is the only book of its kind that unlocks the language of symbols in a comprehensive and easy-to-understand manner.

511 Douglas Keister Forever Dixie
Gibbs Smith Publishers 1423603141 paperback / softcover 4.5" x 9", paperback / softcover, Gibbs Smith Publishers 
When author/photographer Douglas Keister's book Stories in Stone came out in 2004, Sunset magazine stated, "Keister has done for cemetery exploration what Audubon did for birding." Since then, cemetery fans have been clamoring for more. Keister has answered them with Forever Dixie, an exploration of thirteen of the South's best cemeteries and forty notable southerners who have chosen to call the South their permanent home. Forever Dixie gives cemetery explorers GPS directions to the graves of famous southerners such as Martin Luther King Jr., Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Tammy Wynette, Colonel Sanders, Casey Jones, Johnny Mercer, and dozens more. Also featured are interesting and unique graves of ordinary citizens like Thelma Holford of Jonesboro, Arkansas, who commissioned an Italian marble statue of herself and her beloved dog, Bunnie. Forever Dixie is a great gift for all those who call America's southern states home and for those who may have moved but whose hearts, souls, and roots still live in the South.

Photographer/writer Douglas Keister has authored thirty-six critically acclaimed books, including the highly praised book on cemetery exploration, Stories in Stone: A Field Guide to Cemetery Symbolism and Iconography, and Going Out in Style, a book about cemetery art and architecture. His twenty-five books on residential architecture include Inside the Bungalow, Storybook Style, Red Tile Style, Classic Cottages, and Cottages. Keister also writes and illustrates magazine articles and contributes photographs and essays to dozens of magazines, newspapers, books, calendars, posters, and greeting cards worldwide. He lives in Chico, California.
Lafayette Daily Advertiser - October 26, 2008
"Formatted for easy travel and references, the book provides an in-depth look at cemeteries throughout the South, including Metairie Cemetery in New Orleans and Key Underwood Coon Dog Memorial Graveyard in Tuscumbia, Ala., where man's best friend lies in imaginative graves."

526 Helen Chappell, photographs by Starke Jett V The Chesapeake Book of the Dead: Tombstones, Epitaphs, Histories, Reflections, and Oddments of the Region
Johns Hopkins University Press 1999 0801860415 hardback 150 pages, 42 illus, hardback, Johns Hopkins University Press 
"There is a romantic, nostalgic, pleasantly melancholy feeling to old cemeteries that is hard to define but easy to experience. Perhaps it is because we can feel the direct link to our past that no history book, no movie, no historical fantasy can ever convey. These stones and these unkempt grounds are the hard evidence of lives that came before us. Once, these people lived and breathed, loved, worked, fought, hoped and despaired, and experienced their triumphs and failures just as we do today. And, although we seldom care to acknowledge it, we will inevitably go where they have gone."-from the Preface
For the many people who enjoy walking through old cemeteries, exploring forgotten and overgrown graveyards, and reading the names, dates, and epitaphs of the dead, the Chesapeake Bay region offers a rich assortment of final resting places, many dating back to the early 1600s. From Williamsburg to Havre de Grace, it is not uncommon to see a number of the living wandering among the markers of the dead. Some are genealogists and historians, others come in search of quietude and a tangible connection to the past.
In The Chesapeake Book of the Dead, Helen Chappell and photographer Starke Jett survey this rich legacy, from the vast and imposing Arlington National Cemetery to lone graves so modest as to have been lost almost as soon as they were dug. Chappell and Jett visit graveyards of the famous and the obscure, wander through cemeteries dotted with both elaborate funerary and simple, weather-beaten headstones, and discover epitaphs that range from the literary to the amusing to the poignant. As old grave sites disappear under developers' bulldozers, through neglect, and at the hands of unscrupulous headstone collectors, this remarkable book offers a unique and elegiac look at our past and its tales of love and tragedy.
Among the cemeteries explored are Southeast Washington's Congressional Cemetery (posthumous home to composer John Philip Sousa, FBI head J. Edgar Hoover, pioneering feminist and muckraking journalist Anne Royall, and Choctaw chief and notable military tactician Pushmataha); Baltimore's Green Mount Cemetery (built in the 1830s as Baltimore's first sylvan graveyard); and Westminster Burying Ground in downtown Baltimore. At Westminster lies the grave of Edgar Allan Poe, which a mysterious figure visits each year on Poe's birthday to leave roses and a bottle of brandy. The book also describes the final resting places for such celebrities as Dorothy Parker (Chappell located her ashes at the NAACP headquarters in Baltimore), F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald (buried in Rockville at Scott's wish, because, he insisted, "I belong here," in Maryland, "where everything is civilized and gay and rotted and polite"), and cosmopolitan actress Tallulah Bankhead (interred in a plot her sister provided near Chestertown).
Included throughout this fascinating book are essays on mourning fashion and deathbed performances, graveyard ghost stories, discussions of efforts to save historic cemeteries, and notes from the diary of a nineteenth-century doctor who today is buried in Rising Sun Cemetery alongside many of his patients. Chappell's lively prose, accompanied by Jett's haunting black-and-white photographs, will delight all those drawn to the seclusion, peacefulness, and melancholy of old graveyards.

About Author
Writer Helen Chappell, a columnist for the Tidewater Times and frequent contributor to the Baltimore Sun and the Washington Post, is the author of numerous books, including The Oysterback Tales, also available from Johns Hopkins, and Oysterback Spoken Here, as well as the Sam Wescott-Hollis Ball mystery series, of which Give Up the Ghost is the most recent example. Chappell lives on Maryland's Eastern Shore.Starke Jett V has received numerous awards of excellence for his photographs, which have appeared in such publications as Chespeake Bay, Soundings, Wooden Boat, and Classic Boat. In 1991 and 1992, he worked on a project documenting the watermen of the Northern Neck of Virginia in association with the Reedville Fisherman's Museum and the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities and Public Policy.

Reviews & Awards
"From Helen Chappell, a native and resident of Talbot County and one of the very best writers in the region, come observation and musing about dead people, graveyards, tombstones, funerals, burials, and grieving customs around the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland, Virginia, and D.C . . . Being witty as well as serious about death in the same book is a risky business, of course. But Chappell manages it handily . . . The best-written and most entertaining new book on the subject."--John Goodspeed, Easton Star Democrat

Maps of Stamford, Darien and the original Stamford area of New Canaan before 1801 are included; along with the maps is a listing of all the cemeteries, providing their location, general condition, and dates of existence.

Enter the world of the dead as Katherine Ramsland talks to mortuary assistants, gravediggers, funeral home owners, and more, and find out about:
Stitching and cosmetic secrets used on mutilated bodies
Embalmers who do more than just embalm
The rising popularity of cremation art
Ghosts that infest graveyards everywhere
If you've ever scoffed at the high price of burying the dead, or ever wondered how your loved ones are handled when they die, or simply stared at tombstones with morbid fascination, then take a trip with Katherine Ramsland and learn about the booming industry -- and strange tales -- that surround cemeteries everywhere.

550 Ken Worpole Last Landscapes: The Architecture of the Cemetery in the West
Reaktion Books via Chicago Distribution Center 186189161X paperback 192 pages, 7 1/2 x 9 3/4, 129 color plates, 15 halftones, paperback, Reaktion Books via Chicago Distribution Center 
Last Landscapes is an exploration of the cult and celebration of death, loss and memory. It traces the history and design of burial places throughout Europe and the USA, ranging from the picturesque tradition of the village churchyard to tightly packed "cities of the dead", such as the Jewish Cemetery in Prague and Père Lachaise in Paris. Other landscapes that feature in this book include the war cemeteries of northern France, Viking burial islands in central Sweden, Etruscan tombs and early Christian catacombs in Italy, the 17th-century Portuguese-Jewish cemetery "Beth Haim" at Ouderkerk in the Netherlands, Forest Lawns in California, Derek Jarman's garden in Kent and the Stockholm Woodland Cemetery.

It is a fact that architecture "began with the tomb", yet, as Ken Worpole shows us in Last Landscapes, many historic cemeteries have been demolished or abandoned in recent times (notably the case with Jewish cemeteries in Eastern Europe), and there has been an increasing loss of inscription and memorialization in the modern urban cemetery. Too often cemeteries today are both poorly designed and physically and culturally marginalized. Worse, cremation denies a full architectural response to the mystery and solemnity of death.
The author explores how modes of disposal - burial, cremation, inhumation in mausoleums and wall tombs - vary across Europe and North America, according to religious and other cultural influences. And Last Landscapes raises profound questions as to how, in an age of mass cremation, architects and landscape designers might create meaningful structures and settings in the absence of a body, since for most of history the human body itself has provided the fundamental structural scale. This evocative book also contemplates other forms of memorialization within modern societies, from sculptures to parks, most notably the extraordinary Duisberg Park, set in a former giant steelworks in Germany's Ruhr Valley.

563 Kevan Hansen Map Guide To German Parish Registers - Hessen Volume 1
2004 192 pages, 
Volume 1 of the German Map Guide series was published in 2004 and has been acclaimed by genealogists everywhere. Written in English by Kevan Hansen, the volume was principally written to help family historians figure our where their family may have gone to church – and left vital records behind that may be seen today. This is the first of an in-process series of 45 volumes, covering all of Germany. Even the smallest places are listed in this series – some with as little population as one person! These places are as of about 1870. If the place existed prior to that date, it will most likely be listed. If the place was named after that date, the chances drop. This volume covers 1,582 places (usually towns). Each volumes of the series does the following: Identifies the parish where an ancestor worshipped based on where they lived.; Gives the Family History Library microfilm number for the family's parish records - allowing you to often view the Parish Registers that include the vital records of your ancestors at a Family History Center near you!; Identifies nearly every city, town, and place that included residents.; Visually identifies church parishes for Lutherans & Catholics in each district.; Identifies adjoining parishes in case an ancestor attended an alternate parish.; Aids in area searches, particularly across district or regional borders.; Provides visual identification of search areas in which to look for a family.; Helps in determining proximity of one area to another.; Aids in determining reasonable distances of travel from one area to another.; Identifies population centers in each parish.; Identifies archives, repositories, and other resources.; Aids in identification of the location of minority religions.Following is a list of the places found in the Hessen volume: Abenheim;

579 Laverne Galeener-Moore Collecting Dead Relatives
1987 paper, 155 pages 5.5x8.5" 

For the first time . . . a book that looks on the comic side of genealogy! Here you'll meet the people and situations you're already familiar with--the BORE, the BLUEBLOOD, the OLD MASTER, and the BRIEFCASE MAGNET, and a clutch of dissembling officials, wet-nosed beginners, and tongue-clucking harridans--but this time the meeting will drive you wild with laughter.



You'll learn about the latest techniques used by county clerks in repelling genealogists, about projector fatigue, and about acceptable and unacceptable behavior in graveyards. And you'll read about the sins of the D.A.R., research trip survival tactics, sadism in the county courthouse, the banality of workshops and seminars, the proper etiquette in prying information from reluctant relatives, and much, much more. This work is guaranteed to keep you sane and keep you laughing.

591 Mark Herber Ancestral Trails. The Complete Guide to British Genealogy and Family History
2005 873 pages, 
"The Bible of British genealogy" is a complete guide to British genealogy and family history. Includes more than 90 examples of major types of records and detailed lists of further reading. This is the second edition of the book that has been called the Bible of British genealogy. Originally published in 1997 in association with the Society of Genealogists (London), and now revised and updated to reflect the latest developments in the field, Ancestral Trails enables the researcher to form a coherent picture of past generations by describing virtually every class of record in every repository and library in Britain. As the subtitle says, it is the complete guide to British genealogy and family history. To begin with, the book guides the researcher through the voluminous British archives and provides a detailed view of the records and published sources available, analyzing each record and guiding the searcher to finding-aids and indexes. The early chapters help beginners take their first steps by dealing with such matters as obtaining information from living relatives, drawing family trees, and starting research in the records of birth, marriage, and death, or in census records. Later chapters guide researchers to the records that are more difficult to find and use, such as wills, parish records, civil and ecclesiastical court records, poll books, and property records. So the book is ideal for the beginner and the experienced researcher alike, and will enable those who are persistent enough to trace their ancestry back to the Middle Ages. One of the aims of the book—entirely unique to it—is to link sources together to ensure that researchers can use material found in one source to assist a search in other sources. Another aim, somewhat more modest but equally essential, is to bring the reader up-to-date with the many important changes that have recently taken place in British genealogy. Writing in the Foreword to the new edition, John Titford remarks that “a book like this doesn’t maintain its pre-eminence in the field by resting on its laurels. The subject with which it deals has become more of a moving target in recent years that it ever was before, and the author’s sure aim and steady hand have been much in evidence as he has meticulously updated and expanded his original work. An increasing amount of material of relevance to family historians is being made available in print, on microform, on CD-ROM, and on the Internet; fresh finding aids appear and older ones become redundant; record repositories, libraries, family history societies and other interest groups appear afresh on the scene. . . . None of this has escaped the notice of the author of Ancestral Trails, and this welcome new edition, to which the phrase ‘bigger and Better’ hardly does justice, is testimony to the continuing careful attention to detail which characterised the first edition. The scope of Herber’s work is so thorough that it’s worth listing the table of contents, where chapter headings alone tell the tale: An introduction to genealogical research; Personal recollections and memorabilia; Organization of your research material; Problems encountered by researchers; Civil registration of births, marriages, and deaths; Census returns; Parish registers; Churchyards and cemeteries; Directories; Combining sources of information; Archives, libraries, and family history societies; Wills and administrations; Catholic, Non-Conformist, and Jewish records; Marriage and divorce; Maps, land registration, and property records; Local and social history; Newspapers and elections; Parish and town records; Education; Records of the Army, Royal Marines, and Royal Air Force; Records of shipping and seamen; Records of trades, professions, and business; Oaths, taxation, and insurance records; Records of the civil and ecclesiastical courts; Records of the criminal courts and criminals; Peerages, the gentry, famous people, and heraldry; Tracing migrants and living relatives; Scotland, Wales, Ireland, the Isle of Man, Channel Islands; Immigration, emigration, and investigation abroad; National Archives’ information leaflets; County record offices and other archives; Wills and administrations in the Prerogative Court of Canterbury; Web sites for family historians. No other publication gives such comprehensive and up-to-date guidance on tracing British ancestry and researching family history. Illustrated throughout with more than ninety examples of the major record types, and with detailed lists of further reading, Ancestral Trails will be the essential companion and guide for all family historians.— Anthony Camp, former Director, Society of Genealogists

592 Mary Roach Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers
W. W. Norton May 2004 0393324826 paperback 304 pages, 6 x 8, paperback, W. W. Norton 
Stiff is an oddly compelling, often hilarious exploration of the strange lives of our bodies postmortem. For two thousand years, cadavers-some willingly, some unwittingly-have been involved in science's boldest strides and weirdest undertakings. They've tested France's first guillotines, ridden the NASA Space Shuttle, been crucified in a Parisian laboratory to test the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin, and helped solve the mystery of TWA Flight 800. For every new surgical procedure, from heart transplants to gender reassignment surgery, cadavers have been there alongside surgeons, making history in their quiet way.
In this fascinating, ennobling account, Mary Roach visits the good deeds of cadavers over the centuries-from the anatomy labs and human-sourced pharmacies of medieval and nineteenth-century Europe to a human decay research facility in Tennessee, to a plastic surgery practice lab, to a Scandinavian funeral directors' conference on human composting. In her droll, inimitable voice, Roach tells the engrossing story of our bodies when we are no longer with them.

About Author
Mary Roach's writing has appeared in Salon, Wired, Outside, GQ, Discover, Vogue, and the New York Times Magazine; her column, "My Planet," appears monthly in Reader's Digest. She lives in San Francisco.

594 Michael Tepper American Passenger Arrival Records : A Guide to the Records of Immigrants Arriving at American Ports by Sail and Steam, updated and enlarged
1993 142 pages, 
Millions of people made their way to America in the most determined and sustained migration the world has ever known. Initially they left traces of their immigration in scattered records and documents. Later their arrival here was documented so minutely that the records resulting are among the largest, the most continuous and the most uniform in the nation's archives. These passenger arrival records identify by name, place of origin, and other particulars the vast majority of persons who participated in the great Atlantic migration. This work examines the records in their historical and legal framework, and it explains what they contain, where they can be found, and how they can be used. In effect, it is a road map through the mass of records and archival resources documenting immigrant arrivals from the time of the earliest settlements to the passage of the Quota Acts three centuries later. This new edition features expanded coverage of colonial emigration records, finding aids and reference materials, National Archives microfilm programs and publications, current projects and new developments in immigration research, and more.

This includes such well-known records as the Dawes Commission records, the Dawes Final Rolls, and the Guion Miller Rolls, to mention only a few. The bibliography provides references to other material of genealogical and historical value, while four carefully drawn maps show Cherokee settlements in the southeast and later settlements in Oklahoma and points west. For anyone with an interest in Cherokee ancestry, this little book provides instant gratification, supplying all essential information in a mere sixty-four pages of text.
