Lecture: “Disease and Epidemics in Colonial New England”
September 29 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Hosted by: Shellie Karol-Chik
Since the earliest European settlements in New England, diseases and epidemics were a regular part of colonial life.
Join Shellie Karol-Chik as she explores the types of diseases affecting colonists, the timeline of New England’s early epidemics, and how colonists viewed and reacted to this unwelcome part of their lives. The event will also review a case study of an outbreak affecting Plymouth Colony in 1747 and provide tips on how to identify outbreaks in your own genealogical and historical research.
