Dictionary of Americanized French-Canadian names : onomastics and genealogy

October 30, 2019
Picard, Marc, author.
Baltimore, Maryland : Clearfield, 2013.
xvii, 169 pages ; 23 cm
"Monsieur Picard, who has previously written about the etymologies of the French migrants who settled Quebec and Acadia in the 17th and 18th centuries, now follows the spread of those surnames to various English-speaking parts of North America. Besides its derivations and Anglicizations, this resource references the first French-Canadian settlers bearing the names found in the dictionary. Professor Picard explains the development of French-Canadian surnames and their subsequent Americanization, along with a discussion of the various kinds of Anglicization, direct translations, partial translation, and mistranslations of French into English. Each of the thousands of entries in the dictionary contains two parts. The first of these is onomastic in nature, providing the etymology of the surname and any Americanized variants from which they stem. The second part contains some or all of the following information: the name of the first French-Canadian bearer of the name, the name of his parents, his place of origin in France, the name of his spouse and the names of her parents, and the place of his marriage"--Provided by publisher.

xvi, 177 pages : illustrations (some color), facsimiles ; 28 cm
German residential records are found in archives all over Germany, and yes - many have been microfilmed and are available through the Family History Library. This book, German state by German state, details the history of these records. Tremendous numbers of these records were made, in that residential registration is a fact of life in Germany, an idea that's foreign to American researchers. The volume not only details the laws for each historic area of the Germany Empire, but includes examples, and state-by-state information on accessing these documents.

Lake Shore Cemetery of Avon Lake

October 9, 2019
Spenzer, Sherry Newman, author.
Charleston, South Carolina : Arcadia Publishing, [2019]
127 pages : illustrations ; 24 cm
First to arrive, first to depart -- The grim reaper, dressed as disease -- Names on graves, names on streets -- Angel of death and innocent babes -- From Germany to Erie's shore -- There's no place like home -- Under one root but different directions -- Tales from beneath the turf -- Lives well lived -- Tending the cemetery.
"Lake Shore Cemetery evolved as a burial ground of necessity rather than intention. The cemetery's first interments were French fur trappers and Native Americans, but as migrating settlers began populating Lake Erie's shore and a community emerged, the need for a recognized burial site arose. The diminutive graveyard, also known as Avon Lake Cemetery, claims less than one-third of an acre abutting the shoreline cliff. It holds the remains of a Revolutionary War soldier, sailors wounded in the Battle of Put-in-Bay during the War of 1812, Civil War and World War I soldiers, and a World War II Flying Tigers crewman. Within this cemetery, pillars of the community and successful farmers share sod with a court-adjudicated drunkard, an alleged lunatic, and several who spent their last days in the county's poorhouse, Recognized as a historic landmark by the Avon Lake Historic Preservation Commission in 2013, all burial sites within Lake Shore Cemetery's grounds are claimed. The colorful stories of its permanent residents reveal the diverse nature of the community in which they lived and died"--Back cover.
