Product Description:
The Habsburgs have been described at one extreme as demons – responsible for a ‘long history of atrocities’; and, at the other, as dodos – living fossils unable to adapt to the modern world. In reality, the flamboyant royal family appear, in many ways, to have behaved much like most other monarchies. Their story, however, is none the less enthralling for that. It is populated by such unforgettable figures as mad Queen Juana, progressing through Spain with her husband’s decaying body; the ‘heroically fertile’ Maria Theresa, and the quixotic Maximilian, ‘Emperor’ of Mexico.

Product Description:
A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, Duong Van Mai Elliott's The Sacred Willow illuminates recent Vietnamese history by weaving together the stories of the lives of four generations of her family. Beginning with her great-grandfather, who rose from rural poverty to become an influential landowner, and continuing to the present, Mai Elliott traces her family's journey through an era of tumultuous change. She tells us of childhood hours in her grandmother's silk shop, and of hiding while French troops torched her village, watching while blossoms torn by fire from the trees flutter "like hundreds of butterflies" overhead. She makes clear the agonizing choices that split Vietnamese families: her eldest sister left her staunchly anti-communist home to join the Viet Minh, and spent months sleeping in jungle camps with her infant son, fearing air raids by day and tigers by night. And she follows several family members through the last, desperate hours of the fall of Saigon-including one nephew who tried to escape by grabbing the skid of a departing American helicopter. Based on family papers, dozens of interviews, and a wealth of other research, this is not only a memorable family saga but a record of how the Vietnamese themselves have experienced their times.

Product Description:
The Complete set. An Archival Record of the old Irish and of new families that settled in Ireland.......

The Conquest of Ireland, 'An Historical and Genealogical Account of The Plantation in Ulster' with names of Catholics and Protestants Affected. * Irish , Scots Irish, & English settlers from 1609 +. To Understand Ireland today - Every Man or Woman o Irish Descent Needs to have this work.'

A limited four volume archival set, hardbound and gold stamped, with decorated endsheets in each book. This is the rare record of the great change in land ownership and power in Ireland. It is the story of the old Irish families, and the new settlers. A one-of-a-kind genealogical record. The specific names and locations of the landowners are given. It is a primary source of information for those fortunate enough to refer to copies of the surviving volume by Rev. G. Hill.

Vol. 1, shows Ireland as the plan was being hatched. Volumes II, III & IV give even more specific details, right down to Pynnars record of each plot of land after the upheaval. Priceless as a record of the transfer of land to new owners in Ireland. The 19th century historical footnotes and the new IGF surname index in each volume is invaluable to researchers.

Volume 1 - The Fall of Irish Chiefs and Clans. (268 pages)
This outstanding book documents the families and conditions before and during the settlement of Ireland in the 17th century. Specific individuals and sources are given here, of great interest to family researchers and historians. Among items of interest to family researchers are list of jurors, rent rolls, list of those applying to undertake the settlement (undertakers), and list of soldiers. The actions taken here are still evident in Ireland today, and it would do every interested person to understand how it all began.

This volume is laid out in the following order:

Ulster Before the Fall.
The Orders to Begin the transfer of land
The Project of settling new landholders
Doubts, Delays, and problems
How The Authorities Worked
Specific Results, Names and Arrangements
(New IGF surname index).

The largest and most important volume in the series, it lays the ground work for understanding who and what was involved in this settlement of Ireland.This book documents the families and conditions before and during the settlement of Ireland in the 17th century. Specific individuals and sources are given here, of great interest to family researchers and historians. Among items of interest to family researchers are lists of jurors, rent rolls, list of those applying to undertake the settlement (undertakers), and list of soldiers. The actions taken here are still evident in Ireland today, and it would do every interested person to understand how it all began.

Volume 2 - Names in the Land Grants. (107 pages) Footnoted. Itemized land grants to English, Scots, and Irish. Identity of the specific persons, location of lands, with historical commentary.

The Land Grants in this work have been taken from the Patent Rolls of the reign of James I and from the printed Ulster Inquisitions. The book is most importantly arranged with the following sections:
Land Grants for English (Undertakers)
Land Grants for Scottish (Undertakers)
Land Grants for Servitors.
Land Grants to the Native Irish.

While the names and locations in the land grants will be of particular interest to family researchers, there is a wealth of information in the footnotes bringing history to life for all interested persons. The land grants are of differing lengths, and one short example in Co. Tyrone follows:
"Grant to Neale O’Quin, gent., Ballineloughy, one balliboe, containing 60 acres. Rent, 13 s."

Volume 3 - Londonderry Lands and Families.
