Aside: As said in Mission and Method, posts are to contribute to a theme, though there may be divergent ones from time to time. Blogs allow categories, but these are problematic since they collect and present in a time order. From time to time, there ought to be a super-post that gives a more coherent view (here is an example - Truth, Fiction, and Finance). Perhaps, that type of thing will be done more often in the coming year.
Posts of interest, as of today:
- -- George C. Lunt (Silversmith) -- From Mar 2011. This post is linked to Wikipedia, so wiki is source for the views. George's company was a long time in existence. Too, the work that these artisans do is wonderful. The post provides a link to information about a project to identify early artisans and tradesmen.
- -- Great migration -- From Feb 2011. This seminal work allows one to make grounded claims. Too, though, it can be used to establish a basis from which to fill in gaps. After the start of arrivals in the early 1600s, there was a massive influx for a number of years which then ebbed for a number of reasons. This work helps us understand some of what happened.
- -- Henry Lunt (Mariner) -- From May 2011. Henry was a long time at sea. Too, he sailed in interesting times and with interesting people. Too, we have a portrait of Henry's son from 1805. We'll be looking at Henry again, for many reasons.
- -- Newbury, MA -- From Jan 2011. This town got its start about the same time as Ipswich, its neighbor (Rowley was a spin-off from Ipswich). Turns out that Newbury had a better access, than Ipswich, to ocean waters. We will have to look more closely at the founding times and the people involved.
