Yesterday I read an email from the author of two books related to Mayflower history. One was a practical guide for tourists and genealogists who want to check out this historic burial site in Plymouth in person. The title is A Guide to Plymouth's Historic Old Burial Hill: Stories from Behind the Gravestones (2006) and the first 97 pages are the "stories" but the last 29 pages are an index of names in the book plus a reference to known grave locations. The author noted that it could be purchased on his web site, www.saltypilgrim.com or on amazon.com (and I would add: "or on smile.amazon.com, then designate your favorite Mayflower organization to receive a percentage of what you spend." Mine is Pilgrim Hall Museum, which houses the only portrait of a Mayflower pilgrim made during his/her lifetime, but you might pick the Mayflower Society or Plimoth Plantation, which owns the replica Mayflower II docked in Plymouth Harbor.) Amazon actually beats the author's site for price ($14.95 plus free 2-day shipping for Prime members vs. $15.95 and free shipping if you buy $49 worth of merchandise from the author.) Amazon also allows you the option of searching inside the book to see if it's what you really want. However, www.saltypilgrim.com is the only place where you can buy the e-book version, downloadable to your computer, laptop, iPad, iPhone, etc. - in other words, very useful if you are indeed traveling to New England to tromp around graveyards. It costs just $10 and obviously incurs no shipping charge. I saw, too, that www.saltypilgrim.com has other New England tourism/history books on shipwrecks, lighthouses, islands, pirates, and the no-doubt immensely practical How to Cook Bait: the Unlucky Fisherman's Cookbook.
Dr. Maura Mackowski is an Arizona research historian who enjoys the challenge of looking for Mayflower descendants, hers and anyone else's.
