This book is an essential one stop shop for those interested in researching Jamestown ancestors. It contains a number of Appendices which allow the researcher to find names, places, ships of arrival and dates of arrival, death and much more. Armed with that information, descendants of Jamestown survivors will have a chronological story to help to understand what they lived through and to piece together the fabric of their ancestors' lives. Some of the most compelling and captivating stories come from history. Jamestown 1607-1624, A Chronological History and Genealogical Reference of America's First Successful Colony is presented in a storybook fashion to capture and keep the reader's attention in this fascinating story. The author has researched the Jamestown story from numerous historical sources. Many of the earliest accounts of events contain conflicting or biased information. Accounts have been compared, analyzed and presented to the reader in an objective manner which is supplemented by excerpts of period and historical documentation. While the colony of Jamestown can be described as the birthplace of the most powerful country in the world, it wasn't an easy undertaking. Starvation, disease, murder, massacre, deceit, greed, corruption and piracy were commonplace in those first years. The winter of 1609/10 saw civilized Englishmen resort to cannibalism to survive. When researching one's roots, it is important to know from where they came: what they experienced, what motivated them, what they stood for and what hardships they had to endure. These things are essential to understanding who they were as individuals.
