Or maybe I should say "capitations." To keep this site down to a workable size, I'm going to commence cropping all photos possible to head shots. No more finery or formal poses; they take too much room. The writeups have always listed the source of the photo for you to obtain for yourself if you would like to see the whole thing. (Some are pretty interesting, and I usually comment if there is something noteworthy about the full-size original.) I will also be trimming the writeups of pilgrims with 200 or more descendants who have multiple writeups elsewhere because duplication also takes up space. Right now that is the Warrens and the Alden-Mullinses but the Cookes and Howland-Tilleys are also sneaking up on the 200-descendant mark. The purpose of this web site is to look for family resemblances and maybe take an informed guess as to what our progenitors actually looked like. Lineage hints are nice and hopefully helpful but just a bonus.
In today's NEHGS online member newsletter was a link to Photo Detective Maureen Taylor's web site, where she has posted three short (15-minute) films she made with Kickstarter money, profiling three Revolutionary War individuals. (Click here to go to the site.) The 3 are NH soldier Eleazer Blake, Quaker Molly Ferris Akin of MA & ME, and Agrippa Hull, a free black soldier from MA. Check them out and let us know what you think. The length seems perfect for a classroom, a club meeting, or a quick history break,
Dr. Maura Mackowski is an Arizona research historian who enjoys the challenge of looking for Mayflower descendants, hers and anyone else's.
