This great! I think I will have to check some of the books out and maybe invite him for a beer on me! If I share some Mastika maybe I can get an autograph too!


EDIT: I just ordered Vol 1 and Vol3.

Thanks! Hope they provide you with some interesting insight into our community.

Perhaps in the future I will start a series on North Macedonians...

Hello all,

The fourth book in this Macedonians of America series is out. It's called Big Sky Macedonians: A Study of Montana's Macedonian-Americans. Unlike the three previous books in this series, which followed a particular individual in a community, this book is in two parts: the first is an analysis and examination of the data and trends for 645 Macedonians that worked and lived in Montana. I examine their recorded birthplaces, mother tongue, birth years, immigration age, where they resided, and etc. to draw some specific conclusions about Macedonian immigration to Montana and about Macedonian immigration in general.

The second part of the book is a look at about 65 profiles and biographical sketches of a sampling of those Macedonians who actually lived out their lives in Montana. This helps give faces to all of the data and to better understand what life was like for Macedonians who lived in an area where there was no true "Macedonian colony" like in Detroit, Fort Wayne, Cincinnati, and etc.

At the end there is a table with a list of all 645 Macedonians examined, including their birth years and where they resided in Montana. There's also 27 pages of footnotes.

The book is 118 pages. Please note that the e-book version skews the tables, graphs and charts because of formatting issues, but those charts appear normal in the paperback version. The charts are still readable in the e-book version, they just look a little funky.


Here is a link to the book:

I will have a more "exciting" book coming out on Macedonian-Americans in about a month -- one that (partly) takes a deeper look into the feuds between Macedonians, Bulgarians and Greeks in the early years of Macedonian immigration.

My fifth installment in this series:

The First Macedonian Colony: The Untold History of the Macedonian Settlement in Granite City

Summary from the back cover:

Quote:
Riots. Vendettas. Blackmail. Murder. For thousands of Macedonians who settled in Granite City and its environs during the first decades of the 20th century, life in the New World was in many ways the same as in the Old World. These Macedonians may have escaped their impoverished and enslaved homeland for prospects of prosperity and freedom in America, but Macedonia followed them across the ocean to the saloons, factories, and boarding houses of Granite City.

The First Macedonian Colony explores the Macedonian immigrant experience in Granite City during the early 20th century. It examines the monopoly that the wealthy Macedonian bankers and businessmen held over the local Macedonians; details the political and ethnic rivalries of the Macedonians, Greeks and Bulgarians; and chronicles ordinary Macedonians as they integrated into American society all while preserving their Macedonian identity and culture. This little-known story of America’s first Macedonian settlement carries readers on a rousing voyage that will challenge all preconceived notions about the history of Macedonian immigration to America.
The book is 122 pages.

A nice little surprise, this book is now available at the Dallas Public Library in their genealogy collection...if any of you ever find yourselves in Texas.
