  1. I have read Peter’s article titled “Connecting a London trained Joiner to 1630’s Plymouth Colony” before. Can’t say where. It is interesting to me because Kenelm Winslow was my 9th great grandfather and the first of my line to come to North America. My father’s first name was Kenneth and he was also a finish carpenter. Seeing the photos of Peter’s work gives me more of an idea of what Kenelm was doing in his life.
