Like many teens, Thomas Hull is thankful for his family and friends. But he is also proud and thankful that his ancestors survived their first winter in the New World after traveling on the Mayflower nearly 400 years ago.
Hull, a 15-year-old WestValley Junior High School freshman, has documented his ancestry back to the ship the Pilgrims sailed on in 1620. He started the project of researching his genealogy in March 2003, and has worked on it in his spare time ever since. But, he says, "I'll never be finished researching it."
Hull first became interested in tracing his family history when his father's cousin showed him his work on their family's lineage, tracing back as far as the 1400s.
Read the article - it's great. Maybe he should talk to Zoe Williams?
I also descend from Pilgrims Richard Warren and Francis Cooke, but haven't tried to join The Mayflower Society. I don't know my distant cousin, Thomas Hull, but I would love to meet him and talk to him, and encourage him to keep studying history and doing genealogy. We need more young people like this.
