Here’s my growing list of books of interest to Descent by Sea — either about ancestors, their historical time, or psychological aspects of inheritance…
1. The Trial of Bat Shea by Jack Casey (2011) — Greatly enjoyed this book as it gave me insight into my great grandfather John T. Norton and his times in Troy, New York. Highly recommended author whose other book Kateri: Lily of the Mohawks chronicled the historical period of early Dutch ancestors in New Orange during the 1600s.
2. Return to Life: Extraordinary Cases of Children who Remember Past Lives (2013) by University of Virginia psychiatrist Jim B. Tucker and his earlier book Life before Life (2010). Adds another dimension to the idea of psychological inheritance!
3. Expressive Age is website with my posts on genealogy – as one of the many ways to express yourself in the 3/4 of life (age 50 to 75).
