The TRILLO Genealogical Databook By Howard Trillo
eBook (PDF): $18.55
The author, a genealogist for 35 years, has compiled what he hopes will be a valuable resource for present and future family historians who have an interest in the UK-originating Trillo/-w/-e/-a/-er... More > family, either because they bear the same surname, or because they or their ancestors married into it. A series of Indexes, Transcripts and Charts, presents all the data collected over the years: GRO Indexes, Census Returns, BMDs, Register Abstracts, Probate, Deeds, Family Trees. The contents are arranged in the order that a ‘beginner’ genealogist might access family history sources, and includes an introductory section to each category of record. While the ‘spread’ of the family has been fairly wide since the mid-19th Century, the name is a relatively rare one, and the author believes that 95% of Trillo (and variant) individuals are descended from Herefordshire families. It is hoped the present volume will inspire others to investigate the ‘gaps’ in the record and so help to consolidate the family history.< Less

Prints in 3-5 business days
Following on from Ancestral Chains DNA Part I, this work takes the reader a step further along the intrigue of the Family Tree. Viewing Victorian life through the mind-set of great-grandmother, Kate,... More > the stage is set in a posh Georgian terrace in Lewes that serves as the Sussex Probate Office. Money matters are inevitable, but madness and attempted murder play out the scenes of life, as a large family adapt to the sudden incarceration of their father. Clockmakers, the Tolkiens and the creator of Lorna Doone in Teddington, all play their roles in the Battersby family saga. There is mischief and innuendo too, as when the early 19th century grocer from Isleworth is buried with 2 of his 3 wives; the headstone even today forming a paving stone in the church path, regularly walked over by worshippers. A search & locate mission for a great uncle lost in the Battlefield at Passchendaele in 1917 is launched; love was not lost on his finance though because his elder brother took on the cause.< Less
Guilford County, North Carolina Road Docket - May 1832 to February 1837 By Larry W. Cates, MLIS
Paperback: $20.00
Prints in 3-5 business days
Originally GCGS Journal #159. Road records are a frequently neglected source of information about the early inhabitants of any county. In the nineteenth century and before, a county's able-bodied... More > male citizens over 16 and under 45 years of age were responsible for maintaining its transportation infrastructure. Any young man living within a few miles of a given road could be required to perform a certain amount of labor for its maintenance. Guilford County's road dockets, covering the 1820s through the 1860s, show just which young men were assigned to work on particular roads at particular times. These names often do not appear in other records, particularly when men died young or moved away without acquiring significant property. A man's relationships with others of his surname may be revealed because they worked on the same road in spite of a lack of probate or other property-related indicators. Many older landmarks are noted along these stretches of road. This is the first of a contemplated series.< Less

"Ancestral Chains, Battersby Bloodline: Dna Part 2 of 8" By Mark D Bishop
eBook (PDF): $7.79
Kate Battersby is my great-grandmother on my father’s father’s side. Six years after my great-grandfather, Walter George Bishop became independent, he married her - on 12 October 1887,... More > at Brighton Registry Office. Both were 24 and she was pregnant. Kate Bishop, nee Battersby, was the daughter of Edwin Battersby, a Lewes Probate Office clerk, while Walter George Bishop’s dad, John Bishop, was a Cabinet Maker. How my great-grandfather ended up in flamboyant Brighton in the late 1880s and what on earth he was doing there is a mystery that perhaps never will (or never should, perhaps) be unravelled, but it does rather demonstrate another plane to his character; a field that ever-risqué Brighton was to also play for me some 100 years later. And what of this great-grandmother of mine, Kate Bishop, perhaps she and her ancestry are not all that meets the eye. Well, thanks to Victorian bureaucrats and their fastidious record keeping, more is now known about her and her ancestry than she probably knew about herself.< Less
