Number concepts are a human invention developed and refined over millennia. They allow us to grasp quantities precisely: recent research shows that most specific quantities are not perceived in the absence of a number system. Numbers are not innate or universal; yet without them, the world as we know it would not exist.

Product Description

The family information in this book comes from a genealogy magazine published during the 1990s, now out of print. Contents of this brief volume include all queries from the magazine mentioning individuals or families surnamed <b>HOPKINS </b>(with 16 queries in total), <b>HOPPER</b> (7 queries), <b>HOPE</b> (6 queries), <b>HOSKINS </b>(4 queries), or <b>HOPSON </b>(3 queries), as well as <b>HOPEWELL</b>, <b>HOPEWOOD</b>, <b>HOPON</b>, <b>HOPPE</b>, <b>HOPUN</b>, <b>HOSEY</b>, <b>HOSGOOD</b>, and <b>HOSMER </b>(with 1 query apiece).<br /><br />The focus is on families in the southern United States.<br /><br />Genealogy queries such as these have long been a means for family researchers to share information. Although these queries were written by persons seeking information, the wealth of detail in them could prove valuable to you if you're working on the same names or lines.<br /><br />Typically, queries include information on births, deaths, marriages, children of a given couple, family migrations, etc. Some trace several generations of one family. Some even include colorful family stories passed down through the years!<br /><br />Note: If you aren't sure if the information in this book will be useful to your particular family research, why not borrow and read it for free with a Kindle Unlimited subscription?<br /><br />Other surnames occurring incidentally in the queries reproduced in this volume include ADAMS, AIKEN, ALBANY, ALLEN, ANDERSON, ANSON, ARMSTRONG, ASBURY, AUNSPAUGH, AUSTIN, BAGGETT, BAILEY, BALL, BARNES, BARNES, CAMPBELL, BARNTON, BATCHELOR, BATES, BAYS, BELL, BIFFLE, BISHOP, BLANCH, BOARD, BODDIE, BOND, BONDURANT, BONNEY, BOSS, BOWDEN, BOWEN, BOWLES, BOYLE, BRANNON, BROWN, BROWNING, BRYANT, BUNN, BURCH, BURRADELL, BUZBEE, BYRD, BYRNE, CAMPBELL, CANNIDA, CANNON, CHAFFIN, CHAMBERLIN, CHAMBERS, CHAPMAN, CHERRY, CHILTON, CLARK, CLEMENS, CLINTON, CO, COGGINS, COOPER, COPP, CORBIA, CRAIG, CRANFORD, CROCKETT, CROTZER, CROW, CRUMP, CULLEY, CUMMINGS, CUPP, CURRY, CUTHEONS, DANCER, DANIEL, DANIELS, DARR, DAVIS, DEANS, DEWBERRY, DIAL, DOTERY, DOUGHTERY, DOWNEN, DOZIER, EARL, EASTON, ELROD, EMERY, ENGE, ENGELKE, ERDMANN, ESTES, EVANS, FAULKNER, FIELD, FINCH, FINN, FISCHER, FISHBACK, FORREST, FOWLER, FOX, FOXWORTHY, FRANKLIN, FRENCH, FRIEND, FULLER, FUQUA, GAINES, GALLOWAY, GAMBLE, GARY, GATEWOOD, GIST, GIVENS, GLEASON, GLOVER, GOFF, GOSE, GOULTY, GREEN, GREENWELL, GREGORY, GRIFFIN, GRIMES, GRYMES, GUERRY, HALF, HAMBRICK, HAMILTON, HAMMOND, HANKS, HANSFORD, HANWAY, HARGROVE, HARMON, HARRIS, HART, HASKINS, HATHAWAY, HAVENS, HAYS, HEADY, HELDT, HEMBREE, HENSON, HERMANN, HESTER, HICKMAN, HIGH, HILCHER, HINTON, HODGES, HOLLAND, HOUP, HUDNELL, HUFFMAN, HUMPHREY, HUNT, HUSTON, JAMES, JEANS, JEFFERSON, JENNINGS, JEYS, JOHNSON, JONES, JORDAN, JUDSON, KENNADY, KERBY, KEYKENDALL, KIDD, KINCHELOE, KING, KNEUBEUHLER, KNIFONG, KNOTT, KNOX, KUYKENDALL, LAMM, LAWRENCE, LEAKE, LEE, LEFTWICH, LEGATE, LEITH, LEWIS, LINCOLN, LINDSEY, LLOYD, LOWE, LUTHER, MAJOR, MANEE, MARSHALL, MATHES, MATHEWS, McALISTER, McCAULEY, McCAWLEY, McCONNELL, McGARRAH, McGUIRE, McHUGH, McNEALANCE, McNIEL, McQUOWN, MERCER, MEYERHOFF, MILLER, MINTON, MITCHELL, MOBLEY, MOORE, MORRIS, NEAL, NELSON, NIXON, NORTON, O'SEA, OLDHAM, ONEY, ORD, OTEY, OWEN, PAGE, PAINTER, PARSONS, PATRICK, PEARSON, PECKHAM, PENDERGRASS, PENIX, PERRY, PHARR, PHILPOTT, PIPPIN, POLK, RANDALL, RANDELL, RANDLE, RANDOLPH, RANSDELL, REGAN, RENFROW, RICE, RICHARDSON, RICKS, RIDDLE, RIGGS, RODGERS, ROSS, RUSSELL, RUTLAND, RYLES, SHERWOOD, SHIPLEY, SHIPPEE, SISON, SISSON, SMITH, SNOW, SOLOMAN, STALLINGS, STEPHENS, STRAIN, STRIBLING, STRICKLAND, SUMMERS, SWORDS, TALADAY, TANNER, TAYLOR, TERRELL, THOMAS, THOMPSON, THORNTON, TRENT, TURNER, UTLEY, UTLLEY, VERMILLION, VROOM, WALKER, WALLACE, WALLS, WARFIELD, WATERS, WATKINS, WATTERS, WATTS, WEBER, WESTCOTT, WHALEY, WHEATLEY, WHITE, WHITEHURST, WHITTEN, WILLIAMS, WILLIS, WILLMAN, WILSON, WINFIELD, WISE, WOLF, WOODARD, WRIGHT, WYRICK, and YODER,

Einfache Sprache und jugendliches Thema - ideal für den Einsatz im Englischunterricht. Erleichtertes Verständnis durch Seite-an-Seite Layout und Illustrationen. Historischer Kontext zur geopolitschen Lage West-Berlins im Nachwort. ---<br /><br />Wir befinden uns in einem besetzten Haus Anfang der 80er Jahre. Jeder Tag ist ein Kampf gegen die Elemente: Mal sind es die Herren Ordnungshüter, die nach Drogen suchen, mal schmeissen ein paar Skinheads die Fenster ein, oder es ist mal wieder Frau Steinmöller, die liebe Nachbarin von gegenüber. <br />Doch glücklicherweise schaffen es die Besetzer immer wieder, ihre Feinde auszutricksen. Nur "besondere Bedürfnisse" Heiner ist eine harte Nuss, denn er lässt einfach nicht locker …<br />Pikanterweise finden die Irrungen und Wirrungen unserer tapferen Anarcho-Besetzer auf einer "kapitalistischen Insel" statt - umgeben von einer Mauer mit Todesstreifen und einem absurden, kommunistischen Regime. ---<br /><br />"There's a great sense of humour - a true gift." --- "Hard to put down. A nicely constructed read with a good tempo." ---<br />"Wild Years in West Berlin will make you wish you had been there!" ---<br />"Mit viel Ironie und Witz schildert Drawe das Unverständnis zwischen den Generationen. Ein Zeitdokument." ---<br />"Vorsicht: Es könnte das Bedürfnis entstehen, ein Haus zu besetzen!" --- <br />(Besprechungen auf Amazon.com und Amazon.de)
