Product Description:
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is one of the fastest growing religious movements in the world. It is highly visible, with a massive missionary program, yet it remains a mystery in terms of its core beliefs and theological structure. This timely book provides an introduction to the basic history, doctrines and practices of The LDS - the 'Mormon' Church. Written by a non-Mormon it neither seeks to prove or disprove the truthfulness of the religious claims of that faith but rather to describe them in ways that non-Mormons can understand. Particular emphasis is given to sacred texts and prophecies as well as to the crucial Temple rituals of endowments, marriage and baptism for the dead, through which human beings may achieve their divine potential. This rich comparative study offers a new understanding of Mormon theology and ideas of humanity.

Product Description:
The only battle of the War of 1812 fought in Grant County was the Battle of Mississinewa, which involved the Miami Indians, and is still commemorated by an annual reenactment. Two versions of the battle can be read in these abstracts.

In 1778, Frances Slocum, a young Quaker girl was kidnapped by Indians in Pennsylvania. She died in the Grant County area in 1847 as an elderly widow of a Miami Indian. The poignant story of her capture, her life among the Indians, and her renewed contact with her birth family are all retold here.

Marriages, deaths, and business enterprises of local Civil War veterans comprise much of the Marion and Grant County news from 1881 through 1885. A list of county soldiers who lost their lives during that conflict was published with corrections. Federal pensions were applied for, education was enhanced by the construction and staffing of township schools, and county transportation continued to develop during this time. These abstracts are presented alphabetically by surname, followed by a maiden name index.

Product Description:
The Habsburgs have been described at one extreme as demons – responsible for a ‘long history of atrocities’; and, at the other, as dodos – living fossils unable to adapt to the modern world. In reality, the flamboyant royal family appear, in many ways, to have behaved much like most other monarchies. Their story, however, is none the less enthralling for that. It is populated by such unforgettable figures as mad Queen Juana, progressing through Spain with her husband’s decaying body; the ‘heroically fertile’ Maria Theresa, and the quixotic Maximilian, ‘Emperor’ of Mexico.

Product Description:
You've almost certainly faced the problem: you've got an album or box of old photographs but almost all lack any identification. Family Chronicle's special publication can't help you identify the subject but it can help you with dating when the picture was taken - often within a couple of years. A number of books have already been published that describe how to date old photographs but they rely almost entirely on descriptions: Family Chronicle's book is almost all reproductions of old photographs of known date. There are over 650 pictures covering the period from the 1840s to the 1920s. By comparing your undated pictures to the examples, you will be able to compare clothing and hair fashion, the poses adopted by the subject and the background settings and establish a date within a couple of years. The book provides convincing evidence that our ancestors were at least as fashion conscious as we are today and that those fashions changed just as frequently.
