Five volumes, published in 1831, including an atlas volume containing 45 engraved maps (some folding, including a map of London).

=== Cruise Wrap-Up ================================

The 2006 Genealogy Conference and Cruise was a smashing success! We all had a great time, learned a lot, and relaxed a little in the sun of the Mexican Riviera. In fact, our post-cruise survey asked attendees to rate the conference and cruise overall and these are the results:

Great: 80.6%
Good: 19.4%
Fair: 0%
Poor: 0%

That's a pretty amazing result (even better than last year!) and we're gratified that everyone seems to have enjoyed themselves. You can see some photographs of the conference and cruise here:

Planning for the 2007 Genealogy Conference and Cruise is underway. As soon as we have some finite plans, you will see an announcement here.

=== New Releases from the U.S. =========================

The following new searchable data CDs are now available at www.WhollyGenes.com. Product descriptions are by Robert Charles Anderson, FASG, for Archive CD Books USA.


Charles W. Bardsley, CURIOSITIES OF THE PURITAN NOMENCLATURE, (1880) 2006
http://www.WhollyGen...f...WS&p=US0264
This pioneering study surveys the development of English given names from the Conquest to the nineteenth century, with emphasis on the innovations introduced by Puritans in the late sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. The text is liberally supported by hundreds of examples from parish registers.

Bardsley begins with the Conquest, noting the prevalence of Anglo-Saxon names, and then the introduction of a new set of given names from the Continent. He discusses pet names and nicknames as well.

The core of the book challenges the then prevailing opinion that unusual Puritan names dated from the Commonwealth period. The author shows that the increase in the use of Old Testament names came with the rise of the Puritan movement during the reign of Queen Elizabeth. Bardsley argues that the movement was begun by Puritan ministers in the naming of their own children, and that the widespread availability of the Geneva Bible and the associated rise in literacy were crucial in the spread of this usage of given names.

An important section of the book looks at the narrower but important category of names expressing desired Puritan qualities, names such as Suretrust and Faintnot. Names of this sort also had their origins in Elizabethan times.

Bardsley includes an examination of the role played by these names among New England families, and makes use of New England sources as well.

===========================

Rev.Edward L. Parker, THE HISTORY OF LONDONDERRY COMPRISING THE TOWNS OF DERRY AND LONDONDERRY, N.H., (1851) 2006
http://www.WhollyGen...f...WS&p=US0273
Parker has compiled the history of the towns of Derry and Londonderry, New Hampshire, making use of extracts from the town and church records. The historical narrative is supplemented by biographical sketches of many prominent citizens and genealogical sketches of the earliest Scotch-Irish settlers.

In 1718 several boatloads of Presbyterians of Scottish ancestry from northern Ireland arrived in Boston. These immigrants dispersed widely around New England, with a large contingent moving in 1719 to a large tract of land on the east side of the Merrimack River, in an area in dispute between Massachusetts and New Hampshire. They called their settlement Nutfield and were incorporated in 1722 as the New Hampshire town of Londonderry, in honor of the Irish town from which many of them had come.

The town grew steadily, with new immigrants from the established English population of New England and also directly from northern Ireland. By 1735 the population had grown to the point that the town was divided into the East Parish (the earliest settled part of town) and the West Parish (settled some years later). Matters continued in this fashion until 1828, when the East Parish petitioned to be set off as a separate town. The East Parish took the name of Derry, while the somewhat younger West Parish retained the original town name of Londonderry.

The author appends to the history of the two towns biographical sketches of a few dozen prominent residents of the two towns, principally ministers and those active in public affairs. Genealogical information on these residents is incorporated in the sketches. This section is followed by genealogical accounts of more than thirty of the early Scotch-Irish families. These accounts generally cover three or four generations, and trace lines which migrated to the west in the early nineteenth century.


=== New Releases from Ireland ==========================

THE PARLIAMENTARY GAZETTEER OF IRELAND, 1846
http://www.WhollyGen...f...WS&p=IE0021
The Parliamentary Gazetteer of Ireland was published in Dublin, London and Edinburgh by A Fullerton & Co., in 1846 and remains the only parliamentary gazetteer that wholly and perhaps uniquely treats on the thirty-two counties of Ireland.

HANDRAN'S TOWNLANDS IN POOR LAW UNIONS
http://www.WhollyGen...f...WS&p=IE0022
For any Irish historical or genealogical researcher, the importance of Townlands in Poor Law Unions is immeasurable, and is one of only a small handful of must-have reference sources.Originally published in Ireland in pamphlet-form throughout 1885 by the General Register Office by Alexander Thom for Her Majesty's Stationary Office, it is unlikely that the source came into the public domain until it was fortunately collected and privately published by George B. Handran in 1997. Few of Handran's small print-run ended up in private hands and the publication can in the main only be consulted in research libraries and public institutions. The CD-Rom version of George Handran's Townlands in Poor Law Unions has to grace the shelf of anyone seriously researching their Irish ancestors.

A FRENCHMAN'S WALK THROUGH IRELAND 1796-1797
http://www.WhollyGen...f...WS&p=IE0023
Originally published in French in Brunswick as Promenade d'un Français dans l'Irlande, A Frenchman's Walk Through Ireland is an important source for researchers, interested in Irish society at the close of the eighteenth century. This fascinating travelogue, which took place during 1796-7 is packed full of witty and keen observations on all levels of Irish Society on the eve of the 1798 Rebellion.

STATISTICAL SURVEY OF THE KING'S COUNTY, 1801
http://www.WhollyGen...f...S&p=IET0052
The Irish Statistical Survey was carried out under the direction of the Royal Dublin Society. Each county was surveyed with the aim of determining the 'actual state, capabilities and defects of agriculture, manufactures and rural economy'. In practice the surveys contained a vast quantity of local information on almost every aspect of the county surveyed. Because these studies were carried out under central direction the quality of the information provided is good, and given their early date, they remain an invaluable source for the study of each county.

JOHN MITCHEL, JAIL JOURNAL, 2ND ED., 1914
http://www.WhollyGen...f...S&p=IET0055
Described as 'a classic of Irish revolutionary writing', John Mitchel's Jail Journal was first published in the New York Citizen, the journal established by Mitchel on his arrival in America, between 14th January and 19th August 1854. A subsequent edition of the Jail Journal was published in which Mitchel detailed his experiences in the United States between 1853 and 1866. The current CD-Rom publication contains both.

ROBERT SIMPSON, THE ANNALS OF DERRY, 1847
http://www.WhollyGen...f...S&p=IET0056
Published in 1847, Robert Simpson's Annals of Derry is one of the most important books available for genealogists and historians, researching the social history of early modern Derry city. Presented in a typically chronological form, Simpson recounts the principal events and development within the city, between the early seventeenth century and the mid nineteenth century.

W. WILSON, THE POST-CHAISE COMPANION, 1786
http://www.WhollyGen...f...S&p=IET0057
The Post-Chaise Companion of Ireland was published by W. Wilson in 1786. Although a number of companions of this kind were published for Irish use before and after Wilson's edition, this represents one of the most complete guides of its type and all of which were to be relegated to history less than fifty years later with the advent of the railway. Prior to mechanisation, the post-chaise was the most familiar and widely used means of road transport. Containing more than five hundred pages, the Post-Chaise Companion has far more to offer than merely as a directory of distances and also describes gentlemen's seats, sites of antiquity, manufactures and the rural landscape through which the post-chaise roads pass

F. ELRINGTON BALL, THE JUDGES IN IRELAND 1221-1921, 1926
http://www.WhollyGen...f...S&p=IET0058
Francis Elrington Ball's The Judges in Ireland (2 volumes) spans 700 years of Irish judicial history, from the reigns of Henry III, when he was at war with the Norman Barons in Ireland, to the reign of George V, and the inception of the Irish Free State. Running to nearly 800 pages, this publication charts the development of the Irish Judicial Bench, while also providing fascinating analysis of the political milieu for each period. Full judicial succession lists for the entire period are provided, together with extensive catalogues for many of the important personages and appointments to the Irish Judicial Bench.

WARD & LOCK'S PICTORIAL GUIDE TO CONNEMARA C.1890
http://www.WhollyGen...f...S&p=IET0059
Ward and Lock's Pictorial and Descriptive Guide to Connemara and the West of Ireland was published in London circa 1890 and can be viewed as a continuation of a myriad of books published in Ireland for the more intrepid foreign or Irish traveller throughout the nineteenth-century. However, with the advent of widespread rail communication in Ireland, the Pictorial & Descriptive Guide filled a niche for a new type of guide appealing to a new type of tourist. The Guide sought to provide information on every conceivable aspect of the tourist's travels, ranging from prices and descriptions of hotels to descriptions of the principal towns, the important antiquarian views and the botanical specimens that the traveller could expect to see on any one of the thirteen tours described.

DALTON'S IRISH ARMY LISTS, 1661-1685
http://www.WhollyGen...f...S&p=IET0060
Much of the information contained in the Irish Army Lists, 1661-1685 was taken from the Calendars and Reports of the Marquis of Ormond MSS, but it also draws a plethora of information from the Irish State Papers, as well as the King's Letter and Entry Books. It is, therefore, a more comprehensive account than that published in the 1890s by the Historical Manuscripts Commission. This publication provides the names of all the senior ranks of officers serving in the Restoration Army of Charles II and in many cases relevant annotations have been provided by the editor. These annotations often provide useful genealogical information and can provide an essential historical perspective to the officers' careers in Ireland.


=== New Releases from Canada =========================

Nicholas Flood Davin, THE IRISHMAN IN CANADA - C1877
http://www.WhollyGen...f...WS&p=CA0113
Possibly the first comprehensive history of the Irishman's contribution to the establishment and development of Canada written and still today one of the "standard works" on the subject. This book makes an admirable attempt to capture not only the facts of the Irish contribution but also the essence of the impact the Irish character has made on the country.

Thadius W. H. Leavitt, HISTORY OF LEEDS & GRENVILLE FROM 1749 TO 1879
http://www.WhollyGen...f...WS&p=CA0181
The author of this book, Thadius W. H. Leavitt declares himself to be a newspaper editor by profession, and it seems fairly clear that a good portion of the content of this book has been gleaned from the archives of the newspaper he sites as sources. Not to say that this is simply a reprint of old newspaper articles. Thadius has carefully arranged and assembled an amazingly detailed account of the early days of these United Counties of Leeds & Grenville. And then to add personality he has embellished it with biographical sketches of many of the pioneers and outstanding citizens.

(Maj.) K. Weatherbe, FROM THE RIDEAU TO THE RHINE AND BACK, (1928) 2006
http://www.WhollyGen...f...WS&p=CA0206
The week by week account of the trials, tribulations, disappointments and glories of a group of Canadian engineers as they fought their way across Europe in support of the Canadian fighting machine. This is the story of the 6th. Field Company and Battalion, Canadian Engineers, CEF, in the Great War.

R. C. Fetherstonhaugh LL.D., MCGILL UNIVERSITY AT WAR - 1914-1918 & 1939-1945
http://www.WhollyGen...f...WS&p=CA0211
A full and detailed account of the activities and contributions of this world famous university and those of its staff and students to the allied efforts through both World Wars.

Andrew Haydon, PIONEER SKETCHES IN THE DISTRICT OF BATHURST
http://www.WhollyGen...f...WS&p=CA0212
The District of Bathurst was created in 1822 as an administrative area (then) in the county of Carleton. It has since been disbanded in favor of more localized administrations. Describing this former district’s borders is a little difficult. The description given in the book is, “Comprising nearly all the area of the present counties of Lanark and Renfrew as well as that part of the present [i.e., in 1822] County of Carleton lying north and west of the Rideau River.” Perhaps a clearer picture of the area can be gained from a listing of the townships it encompassed: Goulbourn, Beckwith, Drummond, Bathurst, March, Huntley, Ramsay, Lanark, Dalhousie, and North and South Sherbrooke, or from the major towns and villages featured or mentioned in the
sketches, these being: Almonte*, Fitzroy, Lanark, Ottawa (Bytown), Pakenham, Pembroke (was New Miramichi and Campbelltown), Perth, Renfrew, Richmond, and Smith’s Falls (* Almonte has also been known as, Sheppard’s Falls, Shipman’s Falls, Shipman’s Mills, Waterford, Ramsayville, and Victoriaville, at various times in its history.)

George Walton, CITY OF TORONTO & THE HOME DISTRICT COMMERCIAL DIRECTORY & REGISTER WITH ALMANAC & CALENDAR FOR 1837
http://www.WhollyGen...f...WS&p=CA0214
This is one of the earliest directories of Toronto and as a bonus it also covers the surrounding area (called the Home District.)

John MacTaggart, THREE YEARS IN CANADA, VOL II
http://www.WhollyGen...f...&p=CA0215-2
This is an early and rare book describing Canada in the form of a report, to the British Government, of its development and the opportunities it offers. While this is the second of two volumes comprising the whole book it stands in its own right without any loss of information or intelligence. This is because the author, John MacTaggart, does not seem to have been following any plan for the contents or format of the book but simply collected his observations, interpretations and impressions into a random order and published them.

John Livesey, CANADA'S HUNDRED DAYS
http://www.WhollyGen...f...WS&p=CA0216
From his position as a War Correspondent the author, John Livesey was in an ideal position to write this account of the period between 8th August and 11 November 1918, when the Canadian forces played their part of a series of victories which helped to bring this European conflict to an end. What made this 100 day period even more glorious at the time was that it marked a significant change in the fortunes of the allied forces who, up until then, had been fighting a rugged defensive campaign. This is a well written and easy to read book which richly deserves its place as one of the standard reference books about Canada's part in the Great War.

HALIFAX & DISTRICT TELEPHONE DIRECTORY FOR 1950
http://www.WhollyGen...f...WS&p=CA0220
A relatively recent resource for us to reproduce but from an important period where tracking down your family can be tricky. This is the directory published by the Maritime Telegraph & Telephone Company Ltd., and lists subscribers for the following exchanges and areas: Bay Road; Bedford Including:- Sackville District; Blandford; Chezzetcook; Eastern Passage; French Village; Halifax Including:- Bayside, Lawrencetown and Minesville Districts; Hubbards; Lake Charlotte; Mount Uniacke; Musquodoboit Harbour, Including: Jeddore District; Porter's Lake; St. Margaret's; Sambro; Ship Harbour; Tangier Including:- Mooseland, Pleasant Harbour, & Spry Bay Districts; and Wellington.

http://www.WhollyGen...f...WS&p=AU0008
Murray's record is a compilation of official Australian reports in regards to the war in South Africa, and was compiled as a memorial and remembrance of the war.

THE FEDERAL PIONEER MAGAZINE (OCTOBER 1926-AUGUST 1927), (1926-27) 2005
http://www.WhollyGen...f...WS&p=AU1801
The new series 'Federal Capital Pioneer Magazine' was a refined Canberra Magazine issued monthly from October 1926 to August 1927. Each issue imparts the nationalism, patriotism and historic and cultural importance that surrounds Canberra as Australia’s capital. Consisting of about thirty-two pages in each issue, the magazine contains comprehensive and fascinating information relating to Canberra at this time in history. It includes public notices, biographies of important people and information on their descendants, memories of events of the past and opinions on what was current in the developing city as well as stories that help to set the Australian tone and accounts of events, not least of which is the opening of the first federal parliament house.

J. Pearson, PEARSON'S ROAD GUIDE TO NEW SOUTH WALES, (c.1920) 2005
http://www.WhollyGen...f...WS&p=AU2023
The full title is 'Pearson's Road Guide to New South Wales containing a full description of the Roads of the state also Hotel List and a number of various Routs for the information of Tourists'. First published in about 1920, this product was originally a large 77cm x 104cm detailed colour map covering most of New South Wales along with seven smaller detailed map inserts of various other places within the state - these have now all been scanned at high quality and put onto this CD.

NEW SOUTH WALES GOVERNMENT GAZETTE
Government Gazettes contain a vast amount of historical and genealogical information. However they are largely an untapped resource. The few complete runs that are available are usually only found in major libraries. And even for researchers who do have access to these the sheer size and extent of the Gazettes is daunting. Now that is all changing - with the publication of the gazettes on affordable and searchable form on CD-ROM. Tens of thousands of ordinary people and localities, small and large, are mentioned EVERY YEAR in Government Gazettes. But they offer researchers much more than simply names and places. They will help you reconstruct events and circumstances in the life of individuals and communities.

NEW SOUTH WALES POLICE GAZETTE
Police Gazettes are a unique, useful and extremely fascinating resource for local, family and social historians and researchers in other fields throughout Australia. Compiled to be distributed amongst the Police Force only, these Gazettes therefore contain details and information that can not be found anywhere else. They include court lists, lists of warrants issued, appointments and changes in the Police Service, lists of Justices of the Pease, lists of arrests and discharges (which include descriptions), escaped prisoners, and missing persons, as well as lists for
liquor, wine sellers, tobacco sellers, auctioneers, billiard and poisons licences. Notices from Police Gazettes from other states are also often included.

They will help you reconstruct events and circumstances in the life of individuals and communities. Information such as in the following list can often be found in most Gazettes: land sales, government appointments, lost stock, unclaimed letters, police reports, desertions, ships arrivals, insolvency notices, permits, licences, even petitions (with names) and trademark applications ... and the list could go on and on.
