CD: PILGRIMS AND PLYMOUTH
This CD-ROM contains the following six historical works on the Pilgrims of New England and the records of the town of Plymouth, Massachusetts:
The Story of the Pilgrims by Morton Dexter (1894),
The Pilgrim Fathers of New England, A History by W. Carlos Martyn (1867),
Pilgrim Fathers of New England by John Brown, B.A., D.D. (1895),
Records of the Town of Plymouth, 1636-1783 by Wm. T. Davis, et al (1903),
Genealogical Register of Plymouth Families by William T. Davis (1899)
The Pilgrims by Frederick A. Noble (1907).
The histories cover the development of the pilgrims, their persecution, and emigration first to Holland then to the settlement in Plymouth, Massachusetts. Also included are biographical sketches of the more well-know Pilgrims including Robert Browne, William Brewster and William Bradford. The town records of Plymouth contain a complete, verbatim transcription, 1636-1783. These records cover all the formal business of the town, including: town meetings, elections, laying out of roads and land grants. Vital records are not included in this set. The books are presented as graphic images, so the user sees the works just as they were originally published. They are intended to look and function very much like "real" books. This is accomplished using the powerful Adobe Acrobat reader which is provided free on the CD for Windows and Macintosh systems. This CD has no electronic indexes, but each work has a complete human-generated name index. In addition, numerous bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the books, and from book to book. This CD is best viewed with monitor resolution 800x600 or higher.
