Stay-at-home shelfie #7

And here are the books that were behind Shelfie #5, as we complete photo documentation of this slightly hidden bookshelf. There are more family history books, as with the previous shelfie. I can't imagine I'll go through the entirety of A Record of the Descendants of George and Jane Chandler (Who Emigrated to Pennsylvania from Wiltshire, England, in 1687) with a Pedigree of the Chandlers of Oare, Wiltshire1. But the two-volume The Swedish Settlements on the Delaware 1638-1664 by Amandus Johnson and Description of the Province of New Sweden, Now Called, by the English, Pennsylvania, in America by Thomas Campanius Holm are fairly interesting. Good historical reading for a dark winter's night.

1. Just searching for the halibut, I came across this news item in the Warren County Neighbors section of the December 13, 2001, edition of the Dayton (Ohio) Daily News:
"Karen Campbell, a Waynesville librarian, keeps busy with literary and historical projects. A member of the Waynesville Area Heritage & Cultural Center at The Friends Home, Campbell's most recent project has been transcribing and editing two autobiographical essays of sisters Elizabeth and Ruth Chandler. The monographs will be included in a book Campbell is writing about the Chandlers. ... Campbell, who has worked through decades of articles, is excited about material she received from a friend of Elizabeth, including a geneaology titled George and Jane Chandler and their Descendants 1687-1937."
Karen Campbell has four blogs, none of which have been posted in since February 2007:
