Everyday Life In Truro Cape Cod from the Author: Richard Whalen. Everyday Life in Truro, Cape Cod, from the Indians to the Victorians describes the idyllic life of the Pamet Indians, the hardships of the first English settlers, the perils faced by the fishermen's families and toward the end of the nineteenth century the colorful culture of Portuguese newcomers. This companion volume by the author of Truro: The Story of a Cape Cod Town tells what their homes were like, how they dressed, how they cooked, what they ate, how they raised their children, and how families supported themselves._______________________Published with Xlibris in 2002, Truro: The Story of a Cape Cod Town carries the reader swiftly through the four centuries of the town's history while relating the adventures and accomplishments of its people. It was a town of settlement-seeking Pilgrims, pioneer whaling men, intrepid clipper ship captains, shipwreck fatalities and survivors, and an extraordinary number of world-renowned authors, artists and composers. Praise for the book included these comments: "Truro is truly a remarkable town, and Richard Whalen's lively, authoritative history captures all the drama and significance of its four centuries."-Annie Dillard"Richard Whalen's new book is a readable, up-to-date, thorough and often surprising history of the Cape's smallest but one of its most fascinating towns....a welcome addition to anyone's Cape Cod shelf." - Robert Finch

Truro from the Author: Susan W. Brennan. Tiny Truro lies nestled between Wellfleet and Provincetown at the very end of Cape Cod. Incorporated in 1709, it was originally called Pamet by the Payomet Indians who resided there. Truro is a place of spectacular natural beauty, with a rich heritage of fishing, farming, and recreation by the sea. It has been a summer resort destination for more than one hundred years and has attracted scores of artists, authors, and other notable characters to its shores. Photographs of the founding families, their homesteads, and the breathtaking beauty of the cliffs at Highland Light are reflected in Truro. The churches where the town's residents mourned their men when they were lost at sea and served as beacons for ships in the dangerous waters off the coast are recorded in these early images. The spirit, playfulness, and dedication of the community is captured here, from the celebration party re-creating the Pilgrims' landing to the dogged weariness of trap fishermen at the end of a long, hard day.

Cape Cod Library Of Local History And Genealogy from the Author: Leonard H. Smith. Cape Cod families are difficult to trace because only the probate records survived the burning of the Barnstable County Courthouse in 1827, and similar disasters have taken their toll on the Cape's town records. Many of Chatham's records, for instance, were lost in a fire, and Yarmouth's records of the Revolutionary War period have been missing for years. Even so, many important Cape Cod town records still exist; the problem is that so few of them are in print. So it was fortuitous when Col. Leonard Smith stumbled upon a series of pamphlets published at Yarmouthport by Charles W. Swift in the early part of this century under the name Cape Cod Library of History and Genealogy. Although contributors to the Cape Cod Library included such celebrated genealogists as Josiah Paine (author of History of Harwich), William C. Smith (known for his History of Chatham), and Amos Otis (Genealogical Notes of Barnstable Families), the series never reached a large audience, and is today virtually inaccessible. No library in the country holds the complete collection of 108 pamphlets. With great diligence, Col. Smith put together a complete collection for himself, arranged the pamphlets in the order in which they were published, and then, to make the material usable, compiled an index of names.--From publisher description.
