My Family History Library February 25, 2010

This is a list of books I have found valuable in my search to know my ancestors.  Check with the author or distributor for current prices and availabilities.

Neves Asay Cox, LucyRecollections from the Willow Tree Studio – The Story of My Life.  Ed. Heidi Brandt Bingham & LuAnn Asay Brandt. Family Heritage Publishers,2009.           Contact Heidi Bingham to purchase: heidijo_bingham@yahoo.com. The cost per book, at this time, is $50.00.  There are only a few copies left.  We can have more copies printed but the publisher will charge us more for small orders, so the cost may increase a bit.  With 475 pages this book includes the story of Lucy’s life from birth to 2009, a life sketch of Reed Asay, Burl Cox, Pedigree Charts, a Descendents List, Timeline, Recipes and music written by Cheri Cox Frary.


Cross Bywater, Mary, Quilts of the Mormon Migration. This book contains pictures of Samantha and Permelia and some of their grandchildren in the book. (They are the wives of Warren Marshall Johnson) Permelia and Samantha made a quilt square for a quilt that is now on display at the new Cowley, WY museum. I just found the book on Amazon. It’s a little pricey but there are used copies that are affordable. http://www.amazon.com/Quilts-Women-Mormon-Migrations-Bywater/dp/1558534091/ref=ntt_at_ep_dpt_3


LaVerle Neves’ book Their Roots were Long and Deep was published by Stevenson Genealogy. It can be ordered through their website for $20.25- a bargain for the wealth of information! I’m not sure on the shipping costs. Stevenson Genealogy also published two other books you may want to add to your family history library:


Nelson: Mansel H. Nelson; 1363 W. Thurber Place, Tucson, Ariz. 85705; Nelson Family History; 1970, 306 pp; $18.25


Asay: Flossie W. Asay; Rt 2 Box 114, Provo, Utah 84601; Descendants of Joseph and Sarah Ann Asay; 1965, 488 pp; $25.50


There are other Neves’ books however, they are not a direct line. They are related though, and many are available through Stevenson’s Genealogy.

    I just came across this wonderful site! I am a descendant of Edmond Nelson, through his son Thomas Billington. I am SO interested in finding information and stories about this great Nelson family. I love what is posted. I”m not sure how to make contact with you or anyone with information that we could share. My email is Ruthbaker4@gmail.com. I’d love any contact!

    Hi Kathy,
    It’s been a while since I’ve looked at my genealogy. I don’t think that I have anything about the origin of the spelling or on Edmond Daniel Nelson but I will look. I need to get started again! I’ll look through my things this Sunday and let you know if I find anything.

    I just found your blog while searching for info on my great grandfather, Edmund Daniel Nelson (grandson of Edmond Nelson and Jane Taylor). One thing I have run into is the spelling of Edmund – sometimes it’s Edmond and you have Edmund. Do you have any documentation on the correct spelling? Also, do you have any info on Edmond Daniel Nelson? Thank you.

    Hi Betty,
    Stevenson Genealogy & Copy Center in Provo, Utah still offers the book. I just gave them a call to double check and they do still have it. All you need to do is call them at (801)374-9600 or 800-374-7296. Dial extension 2. Then ask them for the book and they will print a copy for $18.25. This does not include the tax and if you need it shipped they will do that for $6.00.
    I love this book! It has a lot of great information and wonderful stories. I’d love to hear your insight on the book and exchange any family history that you might have!
