Ephraim Tinkham Sr. Project: Puritan Great Migration OR Mayflower? [closed]

+4 votes
I see that Ephraim Tinkham-11 Jr. is in the Mayflower Project and protected by Mayflower.

I am wondering is Ephraim Tinkham-10, (the father) should be managed by the Mayflower Project or the Puritan Great Migration Project.

If he isn't included in Mayflower, I can add the PGM project box since he migrated in 1634.

I believe that Ephraim Tinkham Sr. should be part of the PGM project, not Mayflower.  Sr. is the father of a descendant of someone who came on the Mayflower: his son, Jr., is the grandson, through Jr.'s mother, of a Mayflower passenger. I looked at other husbands and wives of Mayflower Family Members and did not find husbands and wives with that designation, only direct descendants.

The categorization page is unclear on this point, and perhaps it needs to be further defined.

Thanks Vic.  I'll proceed and add the PGM project box.

Only the passenger and direct descendants up to two generations or born before 1700 would be included. Spouses are not. From that definition, I would expect the Ephraim Jr would be Mayflower (check with the Project) but Sr would definitely be PGM.

Thanks to you too, Doug, for answering my question.  I'll proceed and add the PGM project box.
