I am passing this along from another list.
I checked out EBAY as recommended by another genealogist and couldn't
the treasures that I found. I started looking for Family Bibles, and
Family Genealogy Books, and well, got through about the first 200
things containing the word "genealogy." Here is a compiled list of some
the goodies I found.
If you find something you want, you better go to EBAY and bid quickly.
of these items only have a day or two left on them.
P.S. No, I have nothing to do with EBAY. I just don't want to see this

Hi Ian and list,
This is probably why MANY do not want to be on their site, I (and many others)
feel that they take advantage of their customers......(would not submit my
family information, why? they would sell it!) there are many new sites
poping up, just keep an eye out!

I received this message on another mail list to which I subscribe and thought
it important enough to pass along to some of the other mail lists to which I
subscribe. As a subscriber to Family Tree Maker's GenealogyLibrary, I, too,
have noticed the same problems. It is unfair, and it is a rip-off. FTM is
cheating its clientele. I thought you might like to know.

Do you subscribe to Family Tree Maker's "GenealogyLibrary.com?" If so, are
you aware that they're cheating you by NOT posting three new books every day?
Just within the last month or so, I've noticed that they are posting books
as NEW that were previously posted several months back. I am aware of AT
LEAST four books (all a part of my genealogy research) that have been posted
multiple times. Since I don't use most of the books they post and would have
no idea whether they post them multiple times or not, I'm wondering just how
frequently they have been re-posting the same books. (For those of you not
familiar with Family Tree Maker's GenealogyLibrary.com, they are a "virtual"
genealogy library which posts, unedited and in their entirety, reference
books, family histories, city/county statistics, and other hard to find
genealogy materials. For $99 a year, they promise to add three NEW books
Personally, I don't like NOT getting the product that I'm paying for.
Clearly, by re-posting previously posted books, they are trying to hoodwink
their clients into thinking they're getting what they paid for. That's akin
to STEALING, and I don't like it. Attempts to contact them by phone, e-mail
and letter have failed. They don't respond and don't seem to care.
Obviously, it's not a one-time mistake or they would not continue with the

Hello.I am new on the list. I am looking for information on my mothers
family.Jospeh Emil Zdziarski was married to Rozlie Wiszk(kowski?).Their
1st and 2nd sons were born in Jamaica,NY.They were in Bridgeport by
1912(guesstamets).George was born 12Mar 1913 and Chester 22Dec.1913(busy
lady)Christina was born 11Feb 1917.Sometime inbetween then and 1920
Rozlie died.My mother and her three siblings were born in Pulaski,Wi.by
Joseph's second wife,Mary Baldyga.I do not know where Rozlie died or
where Joseph and Mary were married.The only clue I have is that there
was another Zdziarski in Pulaski who happened to be married to a Mary
Wendsikowski(sounds like a phonetic spelling of Wiszkowski to me).If
someone can help me find record of their existence in Bridgeport my
cousins and I sure would appreciate it!

According to Greenwich vitals Angeline Adelia Ferris b.
Feb.10,1805. Her parents were Nathaniel Ferris 4th, b.Jan.24,1744,
married Feb.26,1804- Jerusha Graham Peck, b.May 4,1770, d.Sept.12,1815.
Angeline had 4 brothers Nathaniel Peck b. Mar.12,1807, Theodore Nelson
b.Apr.1,1809, Edwin Washington b.Jul.5,1811, & William Edgar
b.Mar.12,1814. Angelines grandparents may have been Nathaniel Ferris and
Amy Briggs who were both from Stanwich and m. May 20,1830.
I hope this is your line!

Thank for your helpful insight and kind words. Your hunch may possibly be
right on the mark, as one of his sons, John went to sea and was never heard
from again. The family spoke of him as lost at sea. Many thanks, you give me
Thank you for all of that looking up that you did for me. The Jacob that
went with his father-in-law, Isaac Cole, in 1786 seems to be a bit too old to
be my Jacob as I suspect that my Jacob was born around 1780, but if he was
born 11 to 14 years earlier it is posssible or it could have been his father.
If it gave Jacob's wife's name that could make the identification easier. I
am saving this is it is a possibility even though Jacob was quite a common
name in those days. Many thanks.
I have a number of books on CT and NY but, sadly, can't seem to pin down your
Jacob Ferris. In the book 10,000 Vital Records of Eastern NY, 1777-1834 by
Bowman on p. 53, item #1822 it states
"Cole, Isaac, 103, d 4/28/14 in Plattsburgh (moved from Dutchess Co. to
Plattsburgh with his son-in-law, Jacob Ferris, in 1786; later moved with this
same family to LaChina (state or country not given - probably in Quebec,
Canada) where he lived several years)."
I think the Ferrises were like rabbits for they definitely managed to
multiply quite rapidly. I go back to two of Jeffrey's sons and it is quite a
challenge to straighten them all out.
Best of luck,
I just checked my FTM "Family Finder" CD. There was a Jacob Ferris
listed in NY in the 1790 Census. Now, I don't know his location, or if
this is your Jacob, but it's such an unusual name for a Ferris (there
was only one other Jacob listed more than once in the same generation in
the censuses and he was in DE, oops--and one in only 1800 in OH), you
might want to take a look at the 1790, 1800, 1810 and 1820 censuses for
Jacob in NY and see if it looks like it could be him. If so, I'd guess
he was b. 1765-1770. If it is him in all three censuses, you'll be able
to narrow down his age pretty well. There were also two Jacobs listed in
the World Family Tree Vol. 1 CD, from FTM, b. 1750-1849--maybe he's
listed there? Hard to say with that span of years.
Something I have a hunch about is that your Ferris may have had
something to do with the sea. The Eddy and Luther families were
originally from RI, seafaring families, and the Ferrises also have many
members that were sailors or captains of ships. These may not have been
transatlantic type ships. For instance, my 5th great grandfather, b.
1774, who lived in Greenwich sailed a packet boat out of Cos Cob,
carrying farm produce and sometimes people to Oyster Bay and then on to
NY City, then back home. This was done daily. One of his partners was a
Ferris, who lived in NY City--I think he moved there from Greenwich in
order for their 51' boat to be "licensed" with the port of NY so they
could land in their harbor. (I have the paperwork from NARA--
unfortunately, they store this data by boat/ship name, not by owner's
name). Anyway, you can see where I'm going with this. My gut feeling is
that a similar situation was going on with your relative--he *perhaps*
moved to NY City for business reasons, perhaps related to a boat.
Have you found a Ferris genealogy yet?
BTW, I'm the one who had the cemetery data posted to the Fairfield Co.
list and checked "Ye Historie of the Towne of Greenwich" data for you,
to no avail.
Don't give up, Marion! The Ferrises were quite numerous and often active
in civic affairs and churches and I can't help but believe we can find
him in some genealogy or other source.

Thank you for your reply and offer to compare information.
My earliest Ferris is Jacob Ferris and he married Rachel Mosher. They wer e
probably born before 1780 as they had 9 children of which I only have 4 birth
dates the earliest was 1802. The parents were supposed to have been born in
Greenwich, Fairfield County, CT. I don't know when they were married, but
they raised the children in NYC, Some of the children as adults lived in
Greenwich or Stamford and nearby areas. The children were: Charles b. 1819
marr Mary Eddy, Henry marr. 1821 Jane June , Jacob b. 19 Mar 1811 marr Mary
Elizabeth Sylvester Luther, John went to sea and lost at sea.prev 1831,
Levinia marr 1837 in Greenwich Walter Lockwood. Rebecca d 1863NYC marr
George Downs, Eliza m Joseph Spencer, Rachel b 30 Nov 1813 marr before
1832 John Henry Voss(my line), Sara marr Ferris Palmer. Some of the above
are buried in Union Cemetery , Greenwich. I do have a little bit more such
as death dates, etc. and am not sure that I have Levinia's correct husband as
I picked it up from some record and he may have married a different Levinia,
The names of the children should be correct as they were handed down to me
through old family correspondence of persons who had personal knowledge.
I do hope that we can make some connection as I am beginning to despair.
I found the WWI Draft Registration records for Stamford CT, at the Federal
Archives at 380 Trapelo Road in Waltham MA. I would assume that
Bridgeport's records are there too. I went there in person for the research
two years ago.
I'm researching the following from Fairfield County:
HAIT, Henry b. abt. 1779, and Calvin b. 1819 - both of Stamford
NAPP (Knapp?), Ann b. abt. 1781 - Greenwich
Anyone out there have a connection or information on these people?
BJ Anderson, Alexandria, VA
From the notes my mother kept it appears that most of her family came
from the Stamford area. I think that many are buried there also. The
main family names I am interested in are WEBB, HORTON and LITTLE.
John HORTON m. ?
Their children: Nimrod, Abram, Theodosia, Zophar, John, Charlotte
and 3 others.
Seth WEBB m. Sarah Ann HOLMES
Their children: Jessie, Annie, Jerome, Emily, Martha, William,
George, Albertina and
I think 2 others.
Thomas LITTLE m. Elizabeth ELLIS (both born in Belfast)
Their children: John, May, Joseph, George, Edith/Emily (twins) and
My grandfather was Joseph Edward LITTLE
My grandmother was Grace Mead HORTON (Little)
My g.grandfather was Abram Mead HORTON
MY g.grandmother was Martha Jane WEBB (Horton)
Is there anyone familiar with or researching these families?
Thanks Bob Irons robert.irons(a)snet.net
