The British Betrayal of the Assyrians is a comprehensive and detailed statement of the Assyrian point of view of the events leading up to the massacre of Assyrians in the newly independent country of... More > Iraq in August 1933. The principal part of the work was written by a Chaldean Assyrian of Mosul by the name of Yusuf Malek immediately following the massacre. Other contributors include David B. Perley and the Assyrian National League of America. The Assyrians suffered large losses from massacre and war as a result of their involvement with the British and their allies during World War I. Their hopes for the establishment of a safe and autonomous or independent homeland in some part of the territories of the former Ottoman Empire were continuously frustrated and finally doomed by the end of the British mandate over Iraq in 1932.

WHITEOAK in the British census : 1871 By Irene M Redpath
eBook (PDF): $2.87
Download immediately.
This is the fourth in a series which will, I hope, eventually list every Whiteoak individual and family who have ever appeared in the British census, from 1841 to 1911. The years 1841, 1851, 1861,... More > 1871, 1881, 1891, 1901 and 1911 have all now been published as e-Books; there may one day be a paperback edition which will contain the complete set, if that would be useful. If you are looking for a relative in 1871, this list of households with at least one Whiteoak resident is as nearly complete as I can make it for now. Please note that these little books DO NOT contain the census images - only household lists, with my own notes, corrections and additions. However I hope they will make it easier for you to trace your ancestors, and buy the images from the usual sources should you want them. Happy hunting!< Less
