Digitized Mayflower Descendant Records

If I knew my British ancestor was part of a pioneering history 400 years ago I'd celebrate the event. That's what FamilySearch and partners are doing for the estimated 35 million descendants today of the 26 Mayflower couples from Britain who landed in September 1620 and survived the first winter. 

Tens of thousands of Mayflower Society member applications (over one million images) and documented descendant family trees of the Mayflower passengers are now freely accessible online. 

The database currently covers about half of those Mayflower couples with surviving posterity (the remainder should be added by year-end).

Find out more at the FamilySearch announcement.
