One of the most enjoyable activities parents can use to bring history and genealogy to life Is to take their children to Plimouth Village in Plymouth, Massachusetts.
I’ve always enjoyed our visits to the village and my talks with my ‘ancestors’. The cast are well-trained. It is hard to impossible to get them to come out of character.
Perhaps we will take all of our grandchildren to the village at the same time and see if they can tag team their ancestors like they do me. The sweet young ladies in the group are especially adept in getting me to do something I typically wouldn’t agree to.
Which houses belong to my ancestors? For some reason I always slide George Soule’s lot one lot down hill from its actual location. The homes of Edward Winslow, Francis Cooke, John Billington, William Bradford, William Brewster and Richard Warren are etched in my memory though.
If you haven’t visited Plimouth Plantation before, jump in the car soon. You’ll thoroughly enjoy the visit.
