  • An excerpt from the Duxbury Rural and Historical Society's (DRHS) Tour of the Myles Standish Burying Ground: Generously provided to us by DRHS, this is an excerpt from a narrated tour by DRHS's Archivist and Historian Carolyn Ravenscroft. It features the story of Dr. Thomas and Rebecca (Alden) Delano and their son Benoni and honors the completed restoration and preservation of Benoni Delano's grave marker, a project funded by the Delano Kindred in 2021.

  • Before the Mayflower, presented by author Jennifer Sinsigalli: Jennifer's book of the same name is a work of historical fiction which demanded significant research to ensure accuracy and interest. Writing under the name of J.L. Rose, she was undisputably successful in that endeavor. Her presentation gives us the full benefit of her research and experience as she describes what life was like in Leiden around the time the Mayflower sailed for America. 

  • DHRS Historian Carolyn Ravenscroft presents Captain Amasa Delano and Samuel Delano Jr.: Amasa and his brother, Samuel, had quite interesting careers. Captain Amasa Delano, a famous Duxbury sea captain, wrote of his voyages and caught the eye of author Herman Melville who turned one of Amasa's voyages into his novella "Benito Cereno". His brother Samuel was recording the ship's log when the brig Grace visited Japan, then a closed country, in 1791. Carolyn gives us the whole story in her presentation.

  • After the Mayflower by Rev. Dr. Becket Soule: Much has been written about the Mayflower, but far less has been published about the ships that followed her: the Fortune, the Little James, and the Anne. Becket Soule introduces us to the ships that followed Mayflower and the stories surrounding them.

  • The 2021 Delano Kindred Annual Meeting: Held at Plimoth Patuxet Museum's Accomack Room on September 18, 2021, this is the full recording of the Annual Meeting.
