Book Description

1999 0806315245 978-0806315249 First
Like the original volume, More Psychic Roots contains a collection of stories and experiences contributed by genealogists the world over--hobbyists as well as professionals. Thus in these pages we have the insights of 225 ancestor hunters from such countries as Canada, Mexico, Germany, England, Australia, New Zealand, and, of course, the U.S.A.--all of whom discuss their experiences in light of synchronicity, intuition, genetic memory, and serendipity. If you liked the first volume, you will positively delight in this sequel, which is guaranteed to enliven the debate about serendipity and intuition in genealogy.

More About the Author

Henry Z "Hank"Jones, Jr., F.A.S.G.)

Henry Z ("Hank") Jones, Jr. has been actively climbing family trees since the age of eight, and, since his graduation from Stanford, has specialized in tracing 18th century German emigrants. His books on the subject include The Palatine Families of Ireland, the two-volume The Palatine Families of New York - 1710 (winner of the Donald Lines Jacobus Award as "Best Genealogical Work of the Year"), More Palatine Families, Westerwald To America, and his brand new three volume set Even More Palatine Families. Hank has written many articles over the years that have appeared in The American Genealogist, National Genealogical Society Quarterly, The New York Genealogical & Biographical Record and other major publications. He recently received the NGS Award of Merit for "Distinguished Work in Genealogy" and has been elected a Fellow of the American Society of Genealogists, of whom there are only fifty in the world. Hank has served on the national board of the Genealogical Speaker's Guild and as a Trustee of the Association of Professional Genealogists.

As to his "other life" apart from genealogical research, Hank Jones was a film actor for twenty-five years. He appeared in many movies, among them eight films for Walt Disney studios (such as "Blackbeard's Ghost," in which he costarred with Peter Ustinov, Dean Jones, & Suzanne Pleshette). He was a familiar face on nearly 500 national tv commercials and has been featured on over 300 network tv shows such as "My Three Sons," "Family Affair," "Petticoat Junction, " "Mod Squad," "The Patty Duke Show," "Mork & Mindy," "The Jeffersons," and "Love Boat" which still come back to haunt him on cable tv today. His new book Memories - The Show-Biz Part Of My Life tells of some of his off-the-wall experiences working with major stars such as Henry Fonda, Ron Howard, Robin Williams, Patsy Cline, Bob Hope, Minnie Pearl, Ringo Starr, and Elvis Presley. Hank also was active as a singer, co-starring on ABC-TV's Tennessee Ernie Ford Show and recording albums on RCA and Capitol Records. His newest CDs are currently released on Epitomé Records.

Hank's best seller, Psychic Roots: Serendipity & Intuition in Genealogy, a study of how intuitive nudges and serendipitous events sometimes influence our genealogical searches, is now in its 9th printing. It was dramatized on NBC's "Unsolved Mysteries" program to good response from inside and outside the genealogical community and continues to be rebroadcast on cable tv to this day. Its sequel, More Psychic Roots: Further Adventures in Serendipity & Intuition in Genealogy", drawn from his own experiences and those of over 200 other family historians from around the world, has just been published by Genealogical Publishing Company in Baltimore.

TIME Magazine recently had a cover-story devoted to genealogy in the new millennium and chose to close the article and tie things together with a quote from - Hank Jones.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely interesting and thought provoking August 31, 1999
By A Customer
I have never been into genealogy, but this book gave me a lot of thoughts about odd things that have happended to me over the years. Many times I just thought they were "Meer Coincidences", now I am truly wondering if there was not more involved. This book was loaned to me by a friend who is very "into genealogy research". I thought that this was not my type reading material, but I did not want to offend her. Once I picked the book up and started reading, I could not put it down !!

5.0 out of 5 stars A really enjoyable read May 2, 2003
I was hooked on Hank's book from the first few pages. I am seriously into genealogy and always believed there was a higher power that led me to information I would never have found any other way.
The naysayers can say whatever they want but there is no "logical" explanation that can explain how people found long sought for, critical information for their genealogical research by having a book come off the shelf and land on the floor to the page containing that information or how they picked up a book that they didn't give a second thought to and opened up the page to where the information was.
I had loads of fun reading this and highly recommend this book to people who think how they found some information was "strange."

I was disappointed; not what I was expecting. No longer sitting on my book shelves.
Others probably will have a different opinion.
