We are very excited to announce the creation of a new searchable database of authenticated Mayflower Pilgrim genealogies; Mayflower Families Fifth Generation Descendants, 1700-1880. The General Society of Mayflower Descendants (GSMD) has published the very well-known series of books Mayflower Families Through Five Generations: Descendants of the Pilgrims who landed at Plymouth, Mass., December 1620 which document the first generation of descendants of the Pilgrims. Also known as the “Silver Books” this series is organized with separate volumes for each for these founding families.
Through a newly announced partnership with GSMD, American Ancestors is delivering this database with a full index of the fifth-generation descendants coupled with the page images for those people. The volumes in this collection are aligned with the volume numbers of the original series of books. Thanks to the hard work of our dedicated volunteers, we are releasing the following volumes today:
- Chilton, James and More, Richard (Vol. 15)
- Eaton, Francis (Vol. 9)
- Fuller, Edward (Vol. 4)
- Fuller, Samuel (Vol. 10)
- Howland, John (Vol. 23, p. 2)
- Priest, Degory (Vol. 8)
- Winslow, Edward (Vol. 5)
This database index includes birth, baptism, marriage, death, and deed records for these individuals, and where available, the names of parents and spouses.
