Explore this link to share the stories of the pilgrims and the origin of Thanksgiving.
Remember our ancestor was George Soule, a servant/teacher for Edward Winslow’s children.
George had been orphaned when his home burned and his parents died. His brother Robert raised him. When he heard of the opportunity to go to the new world, he did so with the Edward Winslow family.
George Soule was a signer of the Mayflower Compact. A document where all of the people agreed to govern as a group.

Note: In Of Plymouth Plantation, William Bradford lists the Mayflower passengers and also tells us who died during the
first winter of 1620/1621 and spring of 1621. No other ships arrived in Plymouth until after the “First Thanksgiving”
celebration. The Pilgrims at the “First Thanksgiving” are all the Mayflower survivors.
