Cooking Cousins Cookbook
||Once again, our delightful cookbook, Cooking Cousins, is available. First published in 1996, the book has been reprinted with new pictures added. It is absolutely chock full of recipes for all sorts of dishes, including appetizers, soups, main dishes, breads, preserves, and desserts. The recipes were donated by our cousins, and some of them go back a very great many years. You will also find a non-recipe titled, I Hate To Cook, and a recipe for Elephant Stew, among other items. There are equivalency tables, microwave hints, kitchen hints, and a calorie counter. You just cannot go wrong with this book in your kitchen.
Donations are just $15.00 US per cookbook, plus $3.00 shipping for the first book and $1.00 shipping for each additional book mailed to the same address. All proceeds go to the DJS Cemetery Fund. Make your checks payable to Descendants of the Jersey Settlers and send to: Dan Tarver, 29 Tarver Road, Natchez, MS 39120.
History of the Descendants of the Jersey Settlers of Adams County, Mississippi, Volumes I and II
||Frances Preston Mills, Editor
Originally published in 1981, reprints of this invaluable two-volume set are now available again. The two books combined are over 2,000 pages long with over 200 pages of genealogical sources. The index alone is over 200 pages long. History, personal letters, family stories, biographies, diaries, historical records. The books have it all. These books constitute the primal source for the DJS. Over 2000 pages for both volumes.
Donation for Volumes 1 & 2 set only (not sold separately) $150.00 US (shipping and handling included). Make your checks payable to Descendants of the Jersey Settlers, and mail to Dan Tarver, 29 Tarver Road, Natchez, MS 39120. Email: Dan@danieltarver.com
History of the Descendants of the Jersey Settlers of Adams County, Mississippi, Volume III
||Ruth Fletcher Latham, Editor
Published in 1996, this 756-page book sports a 100-page index--well over 10,000 names. The content fills in voids from Volumes I & II and carries the generations forward. In addition to genealogy, the book contains many genealogy sources, biographies, and historical records. The donation will defray costs of printing, etc., and will enable us to continue making this valuable volume available. Volume III has 760 pages. Of note, this is as far as the DJS plans to go. From where Volume III ends, each family may begin their own family history. The DJS does hope to publish more editions of our books, containing further corrections and fill ins. When? Later, much later.
