Scots and Scotch Irish : frontier life in North Carolina, Virginia, and Kentucky

May 16, 2018
Hoefling, Larry J.
[Oklahoma] : Inlandia, ©2009.
156 pages : illustrations ; 22 cm
They left Ireland by the boatload to head for America before the Revolution, and settled on the rugged western frontiers of the colonies. The descendants of Scotsmen who had colonized the Irish Kingdom of Ulster, they lived for several generations on Irish soil before heading across the Atlantic and the backwoods of America. They founded communities in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia and the Yadkin River valley of western North Carolina, eventually crossing the Cumberland Gap for the Kentucky frontier. For those Scots-Irish immigrants, life was a test of hardiness, hardship, and endurance, but frontier families also managed time for horseracing, gambling, and socializing - despite their strict Presbyterian ways. They founded churches and helped mold the governments of the new country. Scots and Scotch Irish offers a view of that time and place, along with thousands of names of those early settlers, drawn from church records, military rolls, deeds, court records, and newspapers of the time, all listed alphabetically in a series of appendices by source.

Secret genealogy

May 14, 2018
Ocean, Suellen.
Grass Valley, CA : Ocean-Hose, 2010.
153 pages ; 22 cm
"Secret Genealogy is a 'must read' for those who want to trace their ancestry into antiquity. Suellen Ocean believes that many American surnames were originally of Jewish descent. 'There are millions of people out there who don't know who they descend from. Americans should reopen their family albums and look deeper into the meanings of names in their family trees and symbols in their coats of arms. Names like Levi, Jacob, Benjamin, Rebecca, Sarah, Ezekiel and Hester and symbols such as the lion may have been the last opportunity many parents had to lay claim to a heritage that stems back thousands of years.' Does your Grandfather have an Old Testament Biblical name? If the author's hypothesis is correct, America was built on a much stronger Jewish foundation than what was originally thought by historians. You'll be fascinated with the origins of your surname and you'll comprehend the names of rivers and streams, oceans and continents in a different light, wondering… what do they really mean? Be prepared to let go of all your previous assumptions. Have fun with Suellen Ocean while she brainstorms through Secret Genealogy."--Back cover.
