Ancestral Trails. The Complete Guide to British Genealogy and Family History, Mark Herber
12 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

American Passenger Arrival Records : A Guide to the Records of Immigrants Arriving at American Ports by Sail and Steam, updated and enlarged, Michael Tepper
13 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.

14 Paul Drake More What Did They Mean By That?
Heritage Books 2006 078843571X / 9780788435713 hardback 193 pages, hardback, Heritage Books 
The second of this popular dictonary of historical and genealogical terms old and new.

The family historian must seek out the records of the merchants, courts, legislators, and churches, as well as the everyday expressions of the common men and women, all the while striving to remain aware that just as we have created words like television, computer, microwave oven, automobile, space station, gigabyte, and airplane, and set aside words as ticking and icebox, stadle, and squabpie, our ancestors had to do the same. They made up the likes of telegraph, railroad, and telescope, and assimilated German words like hex, sauerkraut, fresh, hoodlum, and kindergarten; Spanish words such as barbeque, chocolate, and tornado; French sounds like bayou, levee, depot, and chowder; and Indian words such as hickory, pecan, hominy, moccasin, and raccoon. Though they invented the likes of popcorn, sweet potato, eggplant, bullfrog, and backwoodsman, they left behind them terms no longer needed in their daily lives. Gone were the likes of moxa (Indian moss burned on an area of the body, thought to cure gout), hautboy (oboe), gruntling (young hog), muchwhat (nearly), revelrout (a ruckus), and, from most regions of the U.S., the long “a” sounds of old England (fahst for fast, dahnce for dance, and hoff, meaning half.) The words found here are seen at every turn of research; in court documents (especially inventories of estates, court entries, and lawsuits), church records, books, newspapers, letters, and songs. Mr. Drake, retired lawyer and teacher, and veteran genealogist, writes with a pleasing style that is entertaining and educational. He is the author of the popular guide, Genealogy: How to Find Your Ancestors, and You Ought to Write All That Down.

In addition to terminology, such as the names of the many courts and legal processes, this collection of more than 4500 words includes many occupations, descriptions of early furniture and foods, common medical terms and herbal remedies, and many all but forgotten expressions.
