More from the 1600's

Learning from my past has helped me learn a great deal about myself and my family.  An important early period that I have researched in my family my family is in the 1600's.  I wil share some of them.

One of my ancestors actually came to the United States in the 1600's twice.  He first came to Jamestown in the early 1600's for reasons I am not sure of he only spent a short amount of time in Virginia and would reboard the ship for the trip back to England.  A little while after his he made plans to return to the United States via the Mayflower.  The stories of this journey sounded terrible.  It was definetly not a modern cruise ship.

Once they arrived in Massachusetts Plymoth Colony the task became even harder.  The group of people soon found that they had not prepared for everything they were to face in this new country.  They lacked the proper skills of house building, food growth and gathering.  The winters and weather were harsh and would cause much sickness and hardship.  My family would face all of this, but they somehow would manage to survive and flourish.

Reading the history of the Plymouth Colony has helped me in understanding the adversity that people have in their lives and how they manage to over come it.  Learning to work with those around them, those to come and the Native Americans in the area is a classic lesson of learning to get along.  The importance in depending on your own abilites and those around you was a valuable lesson for me as well.

Thank you for the read and I look forward to your comments.
