Ambition without Boundaries: How Julius Caesar’s Thirst for Conquest Shaped the Ancient World, and Impacted the Modern One

by Jack Johnson

This biography on one of history’s most storied figures takes readers on an exciting journey through the detailed history of Julius Caesar. Julius Caesar was a man who influenced the world in unparalleled ways, and his story is one loaded with an extravagant cast of politicians, generals, and royalty. It makes for a riveting tale of intrigue and melodrama.
The book begins with Caesar’s early life, and the humble background from which he came. His accounts of great triumphs and great defeats are all included as his exciting and eventful life is traced through the pages of the book. Caesar was part of a time where record keeping was incredibly proficient, and the pieces we have to put together the life of this man and those around him is plentiful. Caesar’s story is important down to the last detail, and this book encapsulates the details that matter, and help paint a picture of this legendary figure, and the tumultuous time in which he lived.
The greatest forms of entertainment can be found in the truth, rather than fiction, and Caesar’s life is proof of this. It is history that tells us the most extravagant and unbelievable stories. And no matter what amount of speculation or conjecture you throw into this story, the impact of Caesar’s life is undeniable. His legacy is one that must be read, and all that you could want to know about the man lies within the folds of this book.



Family Genealogy Queries: BILLINGSLEY BIGGS BICKERSTAFF BIFFLE (Southern Genealogical Research)

by R. Stephen Smith

The family information in this book comes from a genealogy magazine published during the 1990s, now out of print. Contents of this volume include all queries from the magazine mentioning individuals or families surnamed BILLINGSLEY, BILLINGSLEA, or BILLINGSLY (7 queries in total); BIGGS (5 queries); BICKERSTAFF or BIGGERSTAFF (4 queries); BIFFLE (4 queries); as well as BILES (3 queries); BIBLE (2 queries); and BIESCHAFT, BIDDLE, BILBERRY, BIGGER/BIGGERS, BILLINGTON, BILLINGS, BIGHAM, BILBO, BIERLEY, BICE, BICKLE, BIAS, BIELSS, BIGFORD, or BIEGLER (1 query each).

The focus is on families in the southern United States.

Genealogy queries such as these have long been a means for family researchers to share information. Although they were written by persons seeking information, the wealth of detail in them could prove valuable to you if you’re working on the same names or lines.

Typically, queries include information on births, deaths, marriages, children of a given couple, family migrations, etc. Some trace several generations of one family. Some even include colorful family stories passed down through the years!

Note: If you aren’t sure if the information in this book will be useful to your particular family research, why not borrow and read it for free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription?

Other surnames occurring incidentally in the queries reproduced in this volume include ABLES, ADAMS, ALDRICH, ALMOND, ANDERSON, ANGELL, ARMSTRONG, ARRINGTON, AULFORD, AVANT, AVARY, AVENT, BAKER, BALL, BALLARD, BANTA, BARNETT, BASTON, BATES, BEAVER, BENNINGTON, BENSON, BENTON, BIFFLE, BIRDSONG, BLACKSTONE, BLUMBERG, BOGGS, BOILS, BOYD, BOYLES, BRADFORD, BRAKE, BREWBAKER, BRISCOE, BROWN, BROWNING, BRUMLEY, BRYANT, BUCK, BUFFINGTON, BUICE, BUIS, BUYS, CAMERON, CARR, CARRIER, CARROLL, CASEY, CLARK, CLARY, COCKE, COFFMAN, COLLINS, COMPTON, COOPER, CRUMPTON, CUMMINGS, DARSEY, DAVID, DAVIDSON, DAVIS, DEACONS, DEWBERRY, DUDLEY, DUNBAR, DUNNAVANT, EGGS, ELLIOTT, ESTES, EVANS, FARRINGTON, FEATHERSTONE, FERRIS, FLANIGAN, FOLKES, FORBUSH, FORREST, FORTNER, FRIZZELL, FRY, GAY, GIBSON, GLADE, GODFREY, GODWIN, GREEN, GRIFFIN, HAILE, HALE, HARDAWAY, HARDY, HARGROVE, HARMOND, HARRELL, HARRIS, HARRISON, HARVEY, HENDERSON, HERBERT, HICKERSON, HOBBS, HOLLAND, HOLLEMAN, HOLLY, HOMPLERN, HOPSON, HOPUN, HOWE, HUGHES, HUTCHINS, INGRAM, IVEY, JACKSON, JARRELL, JEFFERSON, JOHNSON, JOHNSTON, JONES, KERR, KORNRUMPH, LAMKIN, LANGFORD, LANGSTON, LANSDELL, LEWIS, LIGON, LUTHER, MAGRUDER, MANN, MARBERRY, MARKHAM, MARSHALL, McCARLEY, McCARRELL, McCARTY, McCAULEY, McCAWLEY, McCRAINE, McCURRY, McDANIEL, McDONALD, McGEE, MICKAN, MIMS, MIRE, MOBLEY, MOORE, MORRIS, MORRISON, MOUNGER, MULLENS, MULLIGAN, MURNAHAM, NEALE, NEEL, NELMS, NEWSOM, ODLE, OLDFIELD, ONSTOTT, ORR, OSBORN, OSTARLY, OSTERLE, PALMER, PATTERSON, PATTON, PAUL, PEBBLES, PEMBERTON, PERRY, PHELPS, PINKERMAN, PITTS, PLANT, PORTER, POSEY, POTTER, PRATHER, PRUTFINGER, PURCELL, PURTLE, RAINWATER, REYNOLDS, RICE, RICHARDSON, RINEHART, ROARK, ROBERTSON, ROOKS, ROWSEY, RUSSELL, SADLER, SARGENT, SCALLORN, SCHLOTHAUER, SCOTT, SESSIONS, SHEPARD, SIMS, SINCLAIR, SISSON, SMITH, SPEARS, SPIERS, STANFORD, STANLEY, STANTON, STEELE, STEEN, STEWART, STOUT, STRAHAN, SWOPE, TANKERSLEY, TAYLOR, THOMAS, THOMPSON, THORNTON, TILLEY, TILSON, TODD, TOOLE, VANCE, VEACH, WAGNER, WALKER, WALL, WALL -WELCH, WEISSENSTEIN, WELLER, WELLS, WEST, WHALEY, WHEELER, WHITTEN, WILCOCKS, WILCOX, WILKINSON, WILLIAMS, WILLICOK, WINBURN, WINNINGHAM, WOLF, YARBROUGH, YORK, YOUNG, and ZACHRY.

    This is the Life

    by Chris R. Pownall

    This book completes my memoirs with more childhood memories of the Cheshire village of Bosley, during the 1940s and 1950s, plus recollections from my school days, whilst attending Congleton Senior Boys School.
    I have very fond memories about the English townships of Macclesfield and Leek, where I spent my adolescent years, and early adult life.
    The remainder of the book is an anthology of things that are firmly recorded within my memory as being subjects of interest or amusement.
    I have had a very fortunate life, and despite some sadness along the way, I have enjoyed many experiences and found great entertainment from everyday living.
    The title comes from my brief service in the Merchant Navy, when I started a catch phrase that was adopted by some of my fellow offices.
    It began in 1967, when we were sailing to the Far East on board the Victory Ship S.S. â??Talthybius’. Initially, the experience was exciting, and with the finest cuisine from our Chinese Chefs, not to say all the beers and gin & tonics, I thought I was in paradise. Typically, if I was off watch, I would be sitting out on deck in a comfortable chair, supporting my feet on the ships railings, and with a large g & t in my hand, I would say “This is the Life.” It’s an expression that I have used ever since, whenever I find myself in a situation of complete tranquillity or great satisfaction.
    Since our retirement, Pat and I have taken to cruising and I have reviewed several recent P&O cruises as a guide to others who may be considering similar holidays.
    The final chapter covers recent health issues and my enlightening experiences as a patient within a modern NHS district hospital.

    Dead End: Four Corners, Nevada (Hannigan Book 3)

    by C.A. Dayhoff

    A cloud of dust rose as Billy’s boots hit the dirt, wearily he had to hold onto the saddle for minute to let the blood flow back to his legs.
    Tired, hungry and thirsty but most of all he was free, Billy grinned, correction, Rich and Free.
    Looking around for any danger or signs someone had recognized him.
    His eyes fell onto the Saloon, staring at the sight for a few minutes, he listened to the sounds flowing out into the street.
    How ironic he thought, standing in front of the Four Corners Saloon in Dead End, Nevada depending how which exit he took out of town is what state he would be in…”Dead End” yea right he laughed to himself.
