An estimated 35 million people can trace their ancestry to the Mayflower. Are you among them? Use this guide to search your ancestry for Mayflower connections.

The Mayflower Migration: Immigrants to Plymouth, 1620

Following on the success of his most recent Puritan Pedigrees—which revealed the “why” of the Great Migration to New England—Anderson now returns to the “who” and expands on the 60 sketches that appear in The Pilgrim Migration (2004) by adding newly discovered material, including biographies of about 30 passengers for whom we have info about their lives before they sailed.

The Pilgrim Robert Cushman wrote a short book which criticized the Church of England, expressed many Biblical reasons for Separation, and encouraged other Christians to separate. He wrote in 1619 but his book was not published until 1642 after his death in Benenden, Kent in 1625. The book gives Pilgrim enthusiasts an insight into the religious thinking of the Pilgrims near the time they sailed on the Mayflower in 1620.
