Tonight I am looking back to a post from almost ten years ago where I shared some Thanksgiving related books. I will probably be reading portions of these over the next few weeks.
This book is a little over 100 pages and gives a brief overview of the first years that the Pilgrims spent in America.
Pilgrim Stories was originally written by Margaret Pumphrey, but was later revised and expanded by Elvajean Hall.
Another great resource that I have is Of Plymouth Plantation 1620-1647 by William Bradford.
A newer book that I have about the Mayflower and the Pilgrims is Mayflower: A Story of Courage, Community, and War by Nathaniel Philbrick.
This is a very good book and sometimes I go back and read sections of it again.
Plymouth Colony: Its History & People 1620-1691 by Eugene Aubrey Stratton is another great resource as Stratton is a former Historian General of the General Society of Mayflower descendants.
I do have a Mayflower passenger in my ancestry. I also have ancestors who are considered Old Comers (those who came to Plymouth from 1620-1627).
The Pilgrim Migration: Immigrants to Plymouth Colony 1620-1633 by Robert Charles Anderson includes profiles of several of my ancestors.
The book is part of the Great Migration Study Project and was published by the New England Historic Genealogical Society.
I have acquired more books about Plymouth and the Mayflower since I wrote this post back in 1993, and some of these are covered in other posts that I have written through the years.
