Family history blog focusing on genealogy and artifacts for several surnames, including: Ackerman, Brooks, Cabot, Haskell, Holbrook, MacKenzie, Merrill and others. My interest was sparked by my grandmother's research and collection of artifacts that were stashed away in an old slant top desk that is now at my Dad's house.
Here is a photo of some logwood that was possibly brought over on the Mayflower. We have the bundle that is in the photograph stored in an acid free box. There is a note in my grandmother's scrapbook that says: "Logwood for dying clothing brought over in the Mayflower 1620".
