Book Description

11 Aug 2014
When one realizes how much the people of prior generations did not have and how much they did not know, you begin to realize how hard life was for them. Imagine ‘cooking’ with no electric and no radio or television to watch. These ‘recipes’ are for more than cooking as in the 1800’s they used the word ‘recipe’ for anything that gave you ingredients for something. You’ll find foods, medicine, hygiene, and a few other categories of items in this with all listed alphabetically and shown is the year for each. As serious as the early recipe writings were, they are humorous today. Some are actually dangerous!

About the Author

I dig really deep for information when I work on genealogy research and those ‘diggings’ lead me to unusual things. I actually use the things found in this book as additions to life stories of the past as they help show the way life was in those early days. Feel free to use what may help you in your private family history work. If nothing else, these pages provide some good laughs! Welcome to the past!

Most interesting and informative. Easy to read and plenty of explanations for older terms once used daily. This book also included recipes that I never dreamed the earlier pioneers would have had.
