Tonight I decided to take a look at my shelves and share a few Thanksgiving related books that I will be reading portions of over the next week.
Pilgrim Stories was originally written by Margaret Pumphrey, but was later revised and expanded by Elvajean Hall.
I have read parts of this book before and plan on reading more of it this week.
I have heard that this is a very good book, and it is near the top of my reading list (along with many other books).
I have not found any Mayflower passengers in my ancestry, but I do have ancestors who are considered Old Comers (those who came to Plymouth from 1620-1627). You can read about them in Pilgrim Ancestry. I plan on reposting part of the information from my post last year along with some new and updated information that I have found.
The book is part of the Great Migration Study Project and was published by the New England Historic Genealogical Society. This year I finally joined the society so that I have greater access to their vast resources.
This is one of the books that I recently ordered from them to take advantage of a new member discount. You can see some of the others by clicking on my post: Home Again
Now to start reading 🙂
