Just received "Gifts That Matter" brochure/catalog from Brethren Press
that lists some items that individuals on this list have asked about
in recent years:
1. Inglenook Cook Book, 1911, revised
2. Granddaughter's Inglenook Cookbook, 1941 edition
Comment on the above: We still regularly use the last item above in
cooking, but for those of you unfamiliar with these cookbooks,
Brethren cooks all over the nation sent in recipes for these
cookbooks. It's fascinating to find out what our Brethren ancestors
(named) were cooking at those times. I understand that somebody has
indexed the names of those who contributed recipes in these books, and
if someone on this list knows where this index can be obtained, can
you share with the list? [Note the above "Brethren" refer only to
the Church of the Brethren, the primary focus of this Brethren
genealogy list; not to River Brethren, nor United Brethren, or EUB, or
Moravian Brethren, etc.]
3. Brethren Encyclopedia, 3 volume set; the Brethren "genealogy
Comment: I've had my set since its publication in 1983 and consider
it an invaluable part of my genealogy library. [This does include
not only the Church of the Brethren, but all Brethren groups that
originated and trace their history back to the 1708 founding in
Germany. This encyclopedia does NOT include United Brethren, or River
Brethren, or Moravian Brethren, EUB, etc.]
4. A number of Brethren history reference books:
Eberly, "The Complete Writings of Alexander Mack"
Durnbaugh, "Fruit of the Vine: A History of the Brethren, 1708-1995"
Durnbaugh, "European Origins of the Brethren"
Durnbaugh, "The Brethren in Colonial America"
Sappington, "The Brethren in the New Nation"
Sappington, "The Brethren in Industrial America"
Again, it is my understanding that the above history books include
only the 1708 Brethren groups as mentioned above.
There is no web address listed on this brochure, but the following
email address can be used to obtain a copy of this brochure:
Note the underscore or underline between the words brethren, press,
and gb as part of the address.
NOTE: I have no financial interest in any of the above books nor in
the Brethren Press. I'm just sharing the above information for
genealogical and family history purposes.
