Researching Your Colonial New England Ancestors
by Kathleen Kaldis, aka “The Ancestor Finder”

The Great Migration of New England started with the Pilgrims, who sailed on the Mayflower, and ended in 1640. During that period, almost 20,000 individuals came to the New England Colonies from Europe but mostly from the British Isles. Over the next 150+ years, many of their descendants migrated westward to the great western frontier to become Pilgrims in their own right. The lecture will discuss some of the common migration patterns out of New England and record collections helpful when tracking your ancestors back to New England.
