This volume covers the lineage records of l,500 members new to the Society from 1953 to 1981. Generation by generation, descent is traced from the earliest immigrant ancestor to the l,500 members of the Society who joined between 1953 and 1981, the sole condition of membership in the Society being that the immigrant ancestor must have arrived in the Colonies between 1620 and 1700.
Each of the lineage records contains the names of all ancestors in the direct line of descent from the original immigrant, each with dates of birth, marriage, and death. Readers should be advised that the term “Pilgrim” in the context of this book refers to travelers to all parts of the Colonies, not just New England. For the researcher’s edification, we should mention here that the index contains about 28,000 names!
