Search the Jamestown 1624/5 Food Records

This database provides information about each household's food resources. This includes both amounts of vegetable foods such as peas and corn, and meats such as bacon and fish. Searches can be performed on Muster (household) names, locations, or on individual types of food. For example, a search of food such as Dry Fish will return all households who produced Dry Fish in the past year.

Note: A wildcard search is available - just add % to your search.
