18). Where My Ancestors Landed in 1634   Ipswich, Massachusetts (July 2001)

Being a genealogy buff, I'd spent many years in Portland researching my family roots before leaving on this trip.  The name "Ipswich, Massachusetts" kept popping up, so I decided to check it out.  With the help of a friendly librarian there, I discovered that my ancestors landed at this exact spot in 1634, having sailed from England on the ship "Elizabeth."  After doing years of research, I was pretty excited to sit here and imagine the scene.
