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:

The black “Americas” Handbook vol. 1. Complete & Finale  edition is the finished  first  edition of a series of books exposing    vital knowledge  needed to be  revealed in order for the race population labelled  black  America to have a balanced overview about  the  foundation for the United States in America, why  the dynamics  of institutionalized and systematic racism is against them and  how it relates to the destiny of the race of peoples as  black “America” today. This book will start to clear the confusion with facts about their true  Heritage(bloodline) home soil, its identity and  cultural roots of today’s so called black race population in the  “AMERICA'S” and give a strong foundation for understanding the reason behind   the systematic destruction of their  families , communities and culture in  the Americas by  the United States and other nation-states in the western hemisphere..

Product Description:
During the 19th century, Georgetown played an important role in commercial and social activities, and for a time it competed for prominence with its neighbors-the City of Washington and Alexandria. Newspapers printed in Georgetown covered commercial and social activities for both sides of the Potomac River, government activities in the City of Washington, and tidbits of foreign news. Perhaps surprisingly, editors of Georgetown newspapers often subscribed to newspapers from cities up and down the eastern seaboard of the United States, and routinely inserted marriage and death notices they deemed of interest to their audiences. This compilation reflects marriage and death notices in nine newspapers that were published in Georgetown during the period 1801-1838. Not all months are covered because not many newspapers survived for some periods. Newspapers represented here are taken from microfilm copies purchased from the Library of Congress. Georgetown lost its charter and was absorbed by the City of Washington; thus in October 1880, most street names were changed. The introductory material presents a map and a list of street names under the old and new systems. Also found is a list of early ministers that can be linked to a particular religion or church.

Product Description:
Perley's DOB as recorded in the Family Bible is 5 December 1794 while his gravestone bears the date 23 February 1793. Robert Ford, the author of the book " Dr. John Perley Ford (1794-1869)", believes the 1794 date is correct as it was written while Perley was alive while the gravestone was carved several years after his death. Also, the 1850 Federal Census states Perley's age as 56 which agrees with the Bible date of 1794. Perley was probably born in Ulster County, New York. John Perley Ford was born December 5, 1794, in New York. He married twice: Cynthia Moore and Susannah Catherine Gallman. The families lived in Indiana and Georgia. John was the descendant of Nicholas Ford of Weymouth, Massachusetts. Cynthia was the descendant of Andrew Moore of Connecticut. Susannah Gallman was the descendant of Hans Gallmann who emigrated from Switzerland to Georgia.

Product Description:
When a family historian discovers a criminal way back in the family tree, he or she needs to know how to trace that person. David Hawkings here offers practical in-depth guidelines for researching these criminal ancestors, many of whom were "obliged" to steal for mere survival and suffered imprisonment for the most trivial offenses. His pioneering study includes surveys of material held by all County and Borough Record Offices, police archives, and other repositories, as well as numerous example cases and illustrations, appendices with source material, and a case history to show the extent to which one individual criminal can be researched. This unique and richly illustrated book provides the essential research and reference tool which no genealogist or family historian should be without.
