New member introducing myself

Hello! I logged into wikitree to see if I could shed some light on my family's geneology, in one specific area. My father's family has always believed that they are related to William Bradford, of the Mayflower and Governor of Plymouth, Mass. All baby boy's in the family have always had the middle name Bradford, presumably starting when a female Bradford married a male Neff, and then they carried on the name Neff and used Bradford for the middle name. I've used a couple other websites and have found nothing definitive. I'd love to tag along with al the geneology work done here and see if I can help fill in gaps also. This is really as a gift to my Dad, since his father passed away when he was so little and not much is known about the Bradford and Neff sides. Thank you!

Welcome to WikiTree! I sincerely hope you succeed in achieving your goal of tracing your ancestry back to William Bradford.
Recently I connected my tree to a DNA cousin that traces her Bradford tree back to the Mayflower. My Brett family married a Bradford & connected to my Neff’s.

Welcome to Wikitree!!!  I did a quick search on the name William Bradford and found many profiles on Wikitree.  You may want to start looking at this one.  His profile is being managed by the Mayflower Project at Wikitree.

Here is the link for the Mayflower Project as well.
