Sustainable Genealogy: Separating Fact from Fiction in Family Legends, by Richard Hite
Sustainable Genealogy explains how to avoid the traps many family historians fall into. Whether it's a proud family legend, a venerable publication, or the claims of an Internet family tree, the unsubstantiated genealogical source is like a house of sticks before the Big Bad Wolf--it won't stand up. Fortunately, taking "heed of the cautions cited and putting into practice the lessons learned in this book will make you all much better family historians and ensure that your genealogical legacy will be one to be trusted."
Richard Hayes Phillips' shocking new study of colonial slave labor contains the names of more than 5,000 children kidnapped from Ireland, Scotland, England, and New England and sold into slavery in Maryland and Virginia, ca. 1660-1720. We have long known about indentured servants, who agreed in writing, by indenture, to work without wages for a number of years to pay off the cost of their passage and lodging, after which time they were freed. We were never told--until now--about white slaves who did not consent and who never contracted in writing!
