We are happy to announce that we have added Volume 70 (2022) to the Mayflower Descendant database. This update adds 224 pages, 4,488 records, and 4,435 searchable names.

The 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 volunteers David Anderson and Sam Sturgis. If you would like to get involved in the digitization and indexing process, please contact Rachel Adams, Database Services Volunteer Coordinator, at rachel.adams@nehgs.org.
