We have added the Thomas Rogers volume to the searchable database of authenticated Mayflower Pilgrim genealogies, Mayflower Families Fifth Generation Descendants, 1700-1880. This addition adds 430 pages, 6,000 records and over 18,000 searchable names related to the descendants of Thomas Rogers.

This database is being constructed from the General Society of Mayflower Descendants (GSMD) 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. Through our partnership with GSMD, American Ancestors is delivering this database with a full index of the fifth-generation descendants, and their children, coupled with the page images for those people.

When Thomas Rogers was about 48 he arrived on the Mayflower from Leiden with his son Joseph, who was about 17. Thomas died during the first winter in Plymouth. His son Joseph survived and had a family. Thomas’s son John came to Plymouth later, possibly along with two of his daughters. This biography is also available on our Mayflower 2020 site here.

This database index includes birth, baptism, marriage, death, and deed records for these individuals, and where available, the names of parents and spouses. We thank our volunteers for all their efforts in bringing this newly searchable data to you!

This update is made possible by the invaluable efforts of our growing team of volunteers, including; Diane Arbuckle, Jan Lundquist, Patricia Dalpiaz, Nell Nies, and David Anderson. We genuinely appreciate their dedication. If you are interested in joining the team, please contact Bianca Renzoni, Database Services Volunteer Coordinator
