After your purchase a copy of your E-book log in here: E- BOOK – A Pool of Thoughts (

I have written this book to perpetuate memory, foster, promote the principles and virtues of my Dutch, German, and Bohemian ancestry. My ancestors maintained a library relating to their settlement in America. This book is principally organized with the accounts of my descendants of the Dutch, Bohemian and German Colonies in America, prior to or during the year 1635 and beyond. Organized and documented family history within this book, will take you back to my ancestors’ collective writings, along with my own. Our families were close. As an example: In Orange City, the “Pool Lane” was known to my ancestors because of how the homes were shaped. They built their homes in a semi-circle with all the homes who had yards, set off from the other buildings. It is known that the Pool family were the first, to create a “neighborhood” by the way the homes were built and placed, because a homeowner could drive into the neighborhood from the north or south entrance of the many farms they owned. My book has many adventures like this. Please join me and share the experience. JMP
