I am passing this info along as being of general interest to Mayflower researchers. AmericanAncestors. org has released a searchable database of the fifth generation of Mayflower Families in cooperation with the General Society of Mayflower Descendants. Some of the information is available now, with more to come. The announcement linked below has more information.

You beat me to it, I was going to post this. Great news! Thanks.
That's a lovely addition
Excellent!
I suggest you edit your original post to clarify that it is a searchable database of the FIFTH generation of descendants, rather than "of the first five generations" of families.
Thanks, Bruce. Edit completed ☺

Some people might also be interested in knowing that NEHGS also has three Mayflower heritage tours planned in 2018, 2019 and 2020.  Information on those is on this page:  https://www.americanancestors.org/heritage-tours

They sound like great tours!

Just to be clear:

The database is NOT a database of the first five generations of Mayflower families. It is an indexed database of ONLY the FIFTH generation of Mayflower descandants. The database is comprised of images and indices of the Fifth Generation series of the Silver Books.

To clarify, TAG (under NEHGS) has a Mayflower database that has the Mayflower passengers, and you could spend months, if not years, examining the multitude of articles and primary records on their descendants.  I'm recently working on William Brewster, and his descendants through Jonathan, Mary (Brewster) Turner, Ezekiel Turner and two of his daughters, Abigail and Grace Turner.

Also note that each 'page' in NEHGS has a print button, and a download button.  I heartNEHGS.
