The Connecticut Society of Genealogists, Inc. presents
“Dead Men’s Tales: A Discussion of Piracy in New England and Beyond” with Casey Duckett

Presented via Zoom immediately following the Annual Meeting (approximately 1:50 pm)

Join us for a program by Captain Casey Duckett, founder of the Rhode Island Pirate Players, who will regal us with tales of the Pirates of New England, who operated legally and illegally along our shores.

Casey Duckett is a Living History Educator who believes in getting his hands dirty. For over twenty years he has immersed himself in many aspects of late 17th/early 18th-century life, including but not limited to: hearth cooking, sword fighting, tall ship sailing, small and great gun exercise, period games, and wilderness survival. Along with these hands-on activities are countless hours of scouring libraries, public records offices, and historic sites in order to research pirates, privateers, and the societies that profited by their activities. Armed with a powerful mix of research and personal experience Capt. Duckett has enraptured audiences throughout the East Coast of the United States on land and sea and even received a Letter of Marque in the State of Rhode Island in 2014.
