Where can I find scholarly articles on the Pilgrims?

It has to be on 17th century immigration to New England, either the Pilgrims or the Puritans who came later. It's for my History class.

    Below is a list of relatively recent scholarly articles on Puritan life and culture. I was able to generate this list in about five minutes.

    Let me tell you how. This skill will serve you well throughout your studies.

    Your university's library website very likely has a search function for many databases that contain exhaustive lists of scholarly articles that appeared in scholarly journals. (If you attend a very small college, you may have to actually go to the library to do this search, but the resource is the same.)

    All you have to do is find your library's point of access to indexes and databases. In this case, since you're in an American history class, and you're looking for articles on the Pilgrims or the Puritans, choose the database/index called "America: History and Life." All I did was use the search function for this database, using the search term "Puritan," and I was provided with thousands of articles. I just selected a few of them and reproduced them here for you.

    Next time, do it yourself. Familiarize yourself with the relevant databases/indices for each class you're taking. It will be one of your most valuable tools throughout your studies.

    Best wishes to you!
