Pilgrims

If April showers bring May flowers, what do Mayflowers bring?
Pilgrims. :-) 
Do you think your ancestors were among the first to share a meal with the American Indians in the new world? Well, it was a small boat, but as you know we humans tend to reproduce exponentially. If you want to check out the possibility of your ancestor having sailed the seas with those first adventurers try the book Mayflower Source Records from The New England Historical and Genealogical Register (copyright 1986 Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc.). From the introduction this book "contains vital, church, ministerial, cemetery or other records for all but three of the Plymouth colony towns that composed early Plymouth, Bristol, and Barnstable counties and were not later annexed by Rhode Island." You can find this source at R Gen 929.3 May.

Happy Thanksgiving 2011 everyone.
