“Nantucket in the dark”…

…according to the NBC Today Show; Savanna interviewed an Island official.

So I searched the Internet for additional details. Living in the 21st Century, we have so many conveniences!! Repeat: “…so many conveniences!!” Eking out a living, enduring hardship–in the 16th and 17th Century–was routine for my Nantucket ancestors (listed alphabetically: Coffin, Coleman, Gardner, Folger, Macy, Paddock, Sears, et al).

In 1992, I spent hours in the Edouard Stackpole Library –expanding my information about these unique Island families.
