The above image is an enlargement of Dr. John Montanee’s signature. It can be used as a talisman in conjures opening the path to communication with Dr. John. "I would deeply recommend not asking anything of Dr. John in these communications. Simply, freely offer what you can. The Good Doctor will respond" (Louis Martinie, 2014).
Records only the “Profession, Occupation, or Trade of each Male Person.” Females not recorded. This is the milieu in which Marie Laveau worked and lived.
Dr. John Montanee: A Grimoire
by Dr. Louie Martinié
The first book length publication celebrating the life and times of the first Dr. John (birth circa 1815 - passing 1885), this publication contains conjures meant to offer Dr. John the opportunity to become a fully present loa in today’s world.
History and folklore have Dr. John filling many posts. He was a freeman of color reputed to be a contemporary of Marie Laveaux in the voodoo on Congo Square, a New Orleans conjure man, drummer, herbalist, physician, and spiritual Doctor as well as having a coffeehouse and dealing in real estate. He was a man worth knowing and is a spirit worth working with.
Reprints of the actual historical documents include a contract with Dr. John’s signature, his Marriage Certificate, his Death Certificate, and various censuses from the period providing important keys to his life. Folkloric sources of beliefs about Dr. John, both verbal and written, are extensively treated. An index and a bibliography add to the book’s ease of use.
A unique feature of the book consists of experiments, explorations, experiences, investigations, teachings, and conjures by current members of the spiritual community which are provided to bring the reader closer to Dr. John and Dr. John closer to the reader. The collection of this material is ongoing through DrJohnVoodoo.com and the reader is encouraged to participate in this great work.
This book is a comprehensive reference for the study of Dr. John as well as the offering of service to the Good Doctor. So often it is heard that little is published on Dr. John. Now that is no longer the case.

Crossroads Mama's 333 Conjure Tips and Tricks
If you are looking for practical conjure tips, tricks and advice, this ebook is for you. The Crossroads Mamas have brainstormed a list of random workings and advice drawing from their combined backgrounds in rootwork, New Orleans Voudou, Native American conjure, Spiritualism, Santeria and Palo. All of the works come from the Crossroads Mamas themselves from their years of experience and practice in the conjure arts and ATRs (African Traditional Religions). We hope to inspire others to come up with their own conjures on a moment’s notice, just as our ancestors did in their time of practical need.
This book is divided into 14 sections, each representing an area of conjure. The tips and tricks in this book are quick and easy descriptions and the reader is assumed to be familiar with the basics to the extent they are able to fill in the blanks. For example, the basic ingredients and purpose of a spiritual bath may be given; however, the time of day the bath is taken or method of disposal of the bath water may not be. Thus, this book is NOT a complete instruction manual with how-to details of rootworking basics.
The Crossroads Mamas’ 333 Conjure Tips and Tricks is written in a simple and straightforward manner, uncomplicated by extraneous written chatter. It contains one tip after another, one idea after another, just as we thought of them, sitting at the kitchen table drinking multiple cups of coffee, writing them down. The only real editing was in the organization of the works, done as an afterthought to help the reader locate areas of interest with ease.
