Download My Ancestors PDF Full Free by Horst H. Geerken and published by BoD – Books on Demand. This book was released on 2020-10-01 with total page 510 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Letters, diaries and documents from many centuries in the past provided the details for this enthralling read, but it is no ordinary collection of dry-as-dust facts. It is a chronicle stretching back into the Middle Ages, the history of a fascinating, influential and many-branched family with exciting life-stories to relate. The authors grandfather was the artist Johann Hinrich Geerken, and his aunt was housekeeper to Albert Einstein. This richly illustrated volume tells the tales of farmers and inventors, artists and artisans, but also of courageous women who had to see their families through difficult times alone. Among the ancestors described are the famous master tower-clock maker Johann Michael Mannhardt, whose clocks continue to tell the correct time, and Wilhelm Emmanuel Johann Mannhardt, an academic and Mennonite whose works are still published today. The book takes us to Meiji-period Japan, where Carl August Schenk the scientist taught at the University of Tokyo and is still honoured as the father of Japanese mineralogy, to Indonesia where the author lived and worked for many years, and on to Australia, America and Greece, where many of the family live today. Many interesting historical anecdotes and illustrations make the book well worth reading - not just for the family. It is a document of modern and contemporary history.

Book excerpt: Sex, drugs and gardening. That's the spirit of Garden of My Ancestors, a story about a family farm set in the wild and misty reaches of Limpopo province. The farm belongs to an infamous family whose ancestors settled here more than a century ago. This is no tedious or anguished account of stoic, hard-nosed colonials, however. This is the tale of a wild and wonderful family, an African tale where white mischief meets magic realism. Set in an incredible garden against ancient mountains that change everyday, Garden of My Ancestors is sad, tragic, funny and philosophical - and an evocative testament to the healing powers of gardening.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: What is it like to be born into an extended Peranakan family that has seen better days? Besides poverty, there’s strife when some don’t pull together. However, I had a wise Grandma, Dad, and Aunt. Reading transported me into a world of joy, and soon I loved learning for its own sake. The Scriptures challenged me to seek the kingdom of heaven when I was at university. Why should I teach in Selangor rather than my beloved hometown, Penang? Could I rely on God? On several occasions, I realized that God blessed me just on time! I tried to influence my students to be intrinsically motivated. I tried to nurture a passion for knowledge. Besides teaching, I researched to facilitate the learning of my students. How could I manage caring for an aging aunt, but by God’s mercy? How would I cope with my health issues, uncertain if healing would come? Would all the events, and my responses to them, show that I worship an all-powerful, merciful God in whom I can trust?

Book excerpt: Do you know what it is that makes you who you are? Is it your name? Your education? Your race, religion, job, or bank account? Or is it your origin, the land of your ancestors, your culture? In The Kongo of My Ancestors, Fungula Fumu Ngondji describes his quest to find out what makes him who he is. Born and raised in what is now the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Fungula has seen many changes in his home country. Fungula offers a firsthand account of his youth in a traditional Congolese village; his teenage years living in the Congo's capital city, Leopoldville (now called Kinshasa), during the time of Belgium's colonial rule; and his career as an influential journalist, labor organizer, and freedom fighter under Mobutu's dictatorship. Fungula recounts the tragedies inflicted on the people of the Congo through the slave trade, colonization, evangelization, and neocolonialism, as well as his own search for freedom and self-realization. The Kongo of My Ancestors is a powerful, passionate call to action for the people of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and for all the people of Africa and the African diaspora.

Book excerpt: Today we have television programmes such as Who Do You Think You Are to thank for the hundreds of thousands of enthusiasts who have now taken up the fascinating hobby of tracing their ancestors, learning about their careers and lives. The author was drawn to the history of HP Sauce and his family's involvement, having spent several years researching childhood anecdotes. His ancestors the Eastwood, Moore, and Britton families all had several business interests in the Victorian and Edwardian periods in the manufacturing industries that were commonplace throughout the North and Midlands of the United Kingdom during that period. HP Sauce perhaps being one of those most famous amongst them. With decades of rumours and myths about the true meaning of the acronym HP, and with the modern medium of the Internet adding to that speculation, the author set about to seek out the truth of his ancestors involvement with the sauce, and this interest brought about his book, HP Sauce: My Ancestors' Legacy and Its History from 1874 to 2013.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Ever since she was a small child, Helma Swan, the daughter of a Northwest Coast chief, loved and learned the music of her people. As an adult she began to sing, even though traditionally Makah singers had been men. How did such a situation develop? In her own words, Helma Swan tells the unusual story of her life, her music, and how she became a singer. An excellent storyteller, she speaks of both musical and non-musical activities and events. In addition to discussing song ownership and other Makah musical concepts, she describes songs, dances, and potlatch ceremonies; proper care of masks and costumes; and changing views of Native music education. More generally, she speaks of cultural changes that have had profound effects on contemporary Makah life. Drawing on more than twenty years of research and oral history interviews, Linda J. Goodman in Singing the Songs of My Ancestors presents a somewhat different point of view-that of the anthropologist/ethnomusicologist interested in Makah culture and history as well as the changing musical and ceremonial roles of Makah men and women. Her information provides a context for Helma Swan’s stories and songs. Taken together, the two perspectives allow the reader to embark on a vivid and absorbing journey through Makah life, music, and ceremony spanning most of the twentieth century. Studies of American Indian women musicians are rare; this is the first to focus on a Northwest Coast woman who is an outstanding singer and storyteller as well as a conservator of her tribe’s cultural traditions.
