For many decades my family has been trying to uncover the circumstances that brought our ancestor, Joseph Rands (my second great grandfather) from Capetown to New York City.  Many hours of research failed to turn up the details... until one day this wonderful little book appeared in an Internet search for the name of one of Capt. Burgess' ships, the Nonantum. 

We now know the exact details of their journey and much of the life of Capt. Burgess.  This is a fun book to read, even if your ancestors were not one of Capt. Burgess' passengers.
