Helmsley Book Cover
Helmsley - Reminiscences
A super book about Helmsley, written by Isaac Cooper a little over 100 years ago, in which he recounts not only his own memories, but some stories handed down to him and extracts from the diary of John Pape, a noted diarist of the 18th century, giving us a real insight into life in the town from the middle eighteenth up to the late nineteenth centuries. We are fortunate to have been able to copy this book and it is available as either a book or on a CD-Rom.

CD Cover Helmsley Mags
Helmsley Parish Magazines 1872 to 1925
Vicar Gray had an opinion on most things! In his parish magazine he voiced his opinions about local and national events, leaving us with a faithful account of life in Helmsley, during the forty years or so that he was in office there, as well as a reflection of what was going on in England at this time. The result is a fascinating account of his work, together with the notices of baptisms, marriages and burials which took place in the town. Following the death of vicar Charles Norris Gray, in 1813, the magazine is continued by subsequent incumbents. Although not quite so colourful, it is still most informative.
This bound collection of the parish magazine, from 1872 to 1925 has some months missing, but most are here. For further information on baptisms, marriages and burials in the parish, the Parish registers are held at the County Record Office at Northallerton.

CD Cover Pickering Cemetery MIs

Pickering Cemetery Monumental Inscriptions
The CD version includes a digital photograph of every memorial in the Cemetery at Pickering. Copies of photographs are available to order.
Some of the monuments in Pickering Cemetery have disappeared, for various reasons, such as poor quality stone having weathered and worn away. Some have just got buried beneath the undergrowth. In some cases, we have been able to find hidden stones and have lifted them to read the inscriptions, then replaced them, for safety, where they were. Some have, sadly, suffered from vandalism.

Book cover Pitfalls and Possibilities in Family History Research
Pitfalls and Possibilities in Family History Research,
by Pauline M. Litton
Now only available on a CD, as the book has sold out
If your ancestors are proving elusive and the records are not where you expected, or do not contain the information you anticipated, then Pitfalls and Possibilities is the book for you. Based on a series of articles with the same title published in Family Tree Magazine, updated and expanded, it is not a book on ‘how to do your family tree.’ Rather it suggests unexplored avenues and additional sources which you may not have considered. Possible errors and omissions in original records, transcriptions and indexes – often caused by poor handwriting, inconsistent spelling and regional accents – are described and illustrated. Family history is like a game of snakes and ladders and this book should help you to reach the final square.

Kirkbymoorside Proudly Presents - Book cover

New Book from Kirkbymoorside History Group
Title: “Kirkbymoorside Proudly Presents…”
Subtitle: A Minglement of Histories From Kirkby’s Golden Age of Entertainment.”

Size: A5 Paperback
Cost: £10
Contents: 102 pages with colour & B&W photos.

“Fun and laughter, drama and tears. Join us on a trip back in time to the heyday of the Toll Booth. This book has tried to capture some of the tales and memories from this pivotal building’s long and varied history, along with some of the groups to have found a home within its walls.”

It covers the building itself, the Amateur Dramatic Society, KMS Electric Cinema, KMS Brass and other rural Bands and Dance Bands. Something for everyone.

NB Minglement is a dialect term for a collection – we thought we would revive it (and it sounds nicer than Miscellany – no-one ever knows how to say that word anyway!)
