I didn't learn much in what i looked at because we just watched a very detailed movie before. However, I did learn that before moving there, they first did visits to see if life there would be better than England. In my opinion it is because of the religious beliefs they were forced to believe in must have been unbearable. Some colonists said life was bad in both areas.
With the specific family I was listening to. They said life in the Colonies would be better for their children. Also, the father made the decision to go to the colonies. The wife trusted her husband that he made the right decision. They had plenty of food for Thanksgiving, the Indians also gave them huge deer meat to eat.
