Mayflower Descendant: Volume 69 now available

Highland Light, Truro, MA (Photo by Venkat Pakala via Wikimedia Commons) This volume of Mayflower Descendant includes Peter Burgess’s work on Eastham and Truro town records.

Today we’ve added Volume 69 to our Mayflower Descendant database. This update adds approximately 200 new pages and 3,200 searchable names.

Mayflower Descendant was originally published by the Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants starting in 1899. In 2015, New England Historic Genealogical Society assumed stewardship of the venerable journal. It is an essential source of information on many New England families, and its focus is not limited to those with Mayflower lineage. The journal includes transcriptions and abstracts of deeds, wills, vital records, and other original documents. In addition, it features compiled genealogies and analytical studies of genealogical problems.

The indexing for these records includes full names, publication year (not the year of the record), and article titles and authors.

This update is made possible by the efforts of our volunteer David Anderson. If you have a few hours a week and would like to get involved in the digitization and indexing process please contact Rachel Adams, Database Services Volunteer Coordinator via email at
