If your family tree includes passengers on the Mayflower in 1620, search the new American Ancestors database “Mayflower Families Fifth Generation Descendants, 1700-1880”. It documents Mayflower passengers and their descendants through five generations—more than half a million people. The project is a collaboration between the New England Historic Genealogical Society, which hosts the American Ancestors website, and the General Society of Mayflower Descendants. You can access the database by subscription.
