Since the publication of the trilogy, many records that were previously unavailable have been posted online. Dr. Phillips has combed through those records and found many new accounts of forced servitude, including 100 white children sold into servitude along the Delaware River. All of these records are compiled in this supplement. So far as is known, this completes the data set for the trilogy. View Book Details

Lost History of Stolen Children: An Epic Poem | Being a true accounting of white children kidnapped and sold into slavery at the Chesapeake Bay and the Delaware River in the seventeenth century and what became of them afterwards 
Richard Hayes Phillips, Ph.D

Dr. Phillips, besides being an historian and genealogist, is long-time songwriter and folksinger in the Scottish and Irish tradition. In Lost History of the Stolen Children, quite possibly the first epic poem in the English language since the nineteenth century, Richard Hayes Phillips has discovered and recounted the stories of kidnapped children whose survival itself was heroic. Those stories are told for the first time in Lost History of Stolen Children. Now the epic poem is available for the first time with the annotations that verify its historical accuracy.

Scots in Poland, Russia, and the Baltic States. Part Four
Dr. David Dobson

Religious liberty in Poland, for much of the period, attracted immigrants who, in their own right, had been subject to persecution in their homelands. Many of the Scots who settled initially along the shores of the Baltic had arrived as soldiers of fortune recruited to fight for and against the armies of Poland, Russia, and Sweden. Choosing to remain in Poland, these veterans later settled on lands given for service rendered, or as itinerant cramers or pedlars. By the 1640s it was reckoned that there were approximately 30,000 Scots resident in Poland – one of the greatest concentrations of Scots in continental Europe. This volume marks the fourth in a series. It is based on numerous primary and second sources found in the British Isles and continental Europe, including the Aberdeen City Archives, the Dundee Shipping Lists, the Danish Archives (Copenhagen), and The Scottish Community in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania, 1630-1750, by Michael Broun Ayre.
