I will check out the Eubank's books - never heard of them. Thanks for the recommendation!
Doing family research on the Lyles family in Union County. My searches haven't led me into Charleston but, if so, I will look out for those names you mentioned.

I see you've added The Watsons Go to Birmingham. This book was incredible! I read it with my daughter a few years back. It had me laughing to the point of tears in a lot of places but also a bit sad.

For an excellent historical book, I am now reading DEVIL IN THE GROVE. It the story of Thurgood Marshall's fight on the Groveland Boys Case in Florida in the 40s. It reads like a novel. I never knew much about Marshall except for Brown v. Board of Education and him being on the Supreme Court. This book talks about what he did before that and I am in awe - the man was BAD (in the good way, of course). Highly recommended!
Wow, those do sound interesting. Thanks for the links, I will definitely check them out. Moved to get away from the Florida hurricans :)!
I am in Charlotte, NC but since moving here I haven't had the time to get into its local history. Can you tell me what sort of artifacts you have found in your searches?
You may also be interested in AMERICAN DIARIES: AN ANNOTATED BIBLIOGRAPHY OF PUBLISHED AMERICAN DIARIES AND JOURNAL by Laura Arksey. It contains over 800 pages worth of named diaries/journals from 1492-1980 that includes the subject, annotation, and geographical region. I am hoping that some obscure diary/journal published by a local press will impart some insight on the local history in the areas I am doing family research (or maybe even mentiom them outright). Really excited about this one!

I had went through your list of books a few months back and I remember putting quite a few on my Wishlist.

I got interested in history by doing genealogy. Once I started getting names and dates on paper my ancestors still felt like strangers and so I wanted to make them "real" people by me learning what their lives were actually like. So, I started with local and regional history books which just opened a whole new world to me.

I see that you have Fredericksburg, VA Death Records, 1853-1895 on your list - don't know if you have read it yet but I just received a partial copy of the index (A-J - libraries really frugal with info sometimes). If you have a name look-up with those last letters, I'd be happy to check to save you time if your library doesn't own a copy of this book. I tried interlibrary loan with it before and no library would do it. You wouldn't happen to be searching Grymes, Hailstock, or Clatterbuck in that area would you?

I am pretty all over the place when it comes to learning new things so if you can be more specific on what type of history you are looking for I might can be of more help. Off the top of my head, I enjoyed learning about:

1. Mary Seacole (black Jamaican nurse who was Florence Nightengale's rival in the Crimean War) - MRS. SEACOLE

2. The day of the largest slave auction in U.S. history - DAY OF TEARS (it's a short, young adult book but very instructive)

3. Story of an early free black couple in 18th century Vermont - MR. AND MRS. PRINCE

4. Historical fiction novel about a slave woman in early 1800 South Africa - UNCONFESSED

You still out there? Hope all is well with you. We continue to add to cour collection but I cannot say we are good about updating Library Thing. We recently took a trip to Toronto to learn more about the Canada UGRR end points. It was a good trip.

Wishing you well!

Hi. Thanks for the recommendation. It sounds interesting. I'll look into it. Thanks again!
Hi, I saw your note. Looked over your collection. Very nice. There's so little information about you on your site.
