Are you interested in improving the profiles of Mayflower passengers and their families?

The Mayflower Project currently covers the passengers of the Mayflower, their wives, and their descendants for two generations or born before 1700, which ever is more inclusive. Please note that all Mayflower passengers and most of their family members already have profiles on WikiTree and should not be duplicated. Can’t find yours? Please ask.

Anyone who has signed the Honor Code and has the Pre-1700 badge is invited to join the project.

To Join - Follow these Directions: 

  1. Read the Project page.
  2. Ask yourself: Do I actively want to participate in the project and contribute to the  Mayflower Project goals? See Project FAQ
  3. Add mayflower to your Followed Tags on your profile.
  4. Post an answer (not a comment) below, introducing yourself, and sharing why you are interested in the Mayflower Project and who your ancestor is (if you have one). Add yourself to the participants list

If you simply want to acknowledge that you are the descendant of a Mayflower passenger and honor that passenger, Mayflower has a Sticker you can add to your profile.

Terralea, this is still a comment, not an answer.

This forum G2G is about questions and answers. The main "heading" is usually the question. At the end of the introduction there are choices in very small print " edit close hide answer comment " what you've done (this) is a comment, click on the answer choice instead. When you open the question to read it, usually an answer box opens by default.

I don't either know or don't understand, what you are saying, so I retract myself from helping with this project.
My GSMD is 95,245 with NY # 6336. I am descended fromThomas Rogers and his son Joseph. The Lineage is properly proved down to me and i would be pleased to know any more in fo you might have or info which I might be ableto share with you or others.

Here’s a link to the lineage chart created by the WikiTree relationship finder when I search for a link between myself and Thomas Rogers. When I use the finder to compare your profile ID with Joseph Rogers, it cant find a relationship, probably because you haven’t completed adding profiles for all your ancestors back to the Rogerses from the Mayflower. Check this chart and see where our lines diverge.

I just found my relation to Thomas Rogers of the mayflower through his son John. I still have some more digging to do but I am pretty confident in my findings so far. That will be my 5th mayflower ancestor. Also Gary Taylor we are 7th cousins. Nice to meet you!
Hi Dan, I am part of the group! I even learned of new relatives in Phoenix area... It's no longer six degrees of separation! It's really neat to learn more and more about the ancestors. Hope you are having a great day!
have Mayflower Grandparents
I would very much like to help for my mayflower family tree

Scott, would you kindly post an answer (as opposed to a comment) You don't need to repeat the whole thing.

Hi, Im wondering what my family tree looks like up to Mary Allerton. She is my seven greats grandmother. I am Auden Voisine
Have you tried the relationship finder

On your profile click on the Family Tree and Tools tab. Scroll down to "Relationship with me" Use your Wikitree-ID and Mary Allertons

hi is there any pike relation to the mayflower?
by Diann George G2G Crew (380 points)
There don't seem to be any Pikes in the first three generations of Mayflower (covered by the Project). That doesn't mean you aren't related, it just means that your relationship (if any) is through female lines after grandchildren of passengers.
There are Pike descendants who are Mayflower descendants. Leonard Pike married Ann Snow (MF:6:274-5). One of my lines (GSMD 70468s) is through Jonathan Whorf and Hanna Pike b. 1806 in Truro.
Yes, MF:6:274-5

My name is Chris im a firefighter and father of 3 living in Florida.  I’m currently doing research trying to verify one of my lines tieing into William Brewster’s.  I have verified lines to the Hopkins, and the Allerton families. I grew up in New England and the early history of our countries founding was  integral part of my childhood.  As an adult I’ve come to find links to many important events in our history including the Mayflower.  I look forward to being a part of this project and being able to contribute to this wonderful community tree.

I have the pink book (fifth generation) for his son Jonathan, if that helps.

Hi, I am Dave Dardinger. I recently decided to see what cousins I had which were Mayflower passengers.  Turns out I have 6 of them, but I also find I'm a direct descent of the Hopkins family. Constance Hopkins is my 9ggrandmother.  So I'll go put the Mayflower tag on my list and see if I can find any way to get the 5 links which have Unknown Confidence to become confident.
by Dave Dardinger G2G6 Pilot (395k points)
Great Dave - go forth and source, and may the source be with you
Hey Dave!  My Snow married Constance Hopkins.  Are  we cousins?

I'd like to be a part of the Mayflower Project. I am currently an Assistant Historian for the Nevada Society of Mayflower Descendants. Richard L Dalton, Member of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants GSM # 88,879 State Society Nevada # 477 descendant of John Howland, Elizabeth Tilley, John Tilley, Elizabeth Hurst, Degory Priest and George Soule.

by Richard Dalton G2G2 (2.7k points)
Excellent and thank you for joining the project. And welcome to a very distant cousin.
Thank you Anne B.

I look forward to the journey and making more connections with cousins and our friends. Such a small world, one of my co-workers and I both descend from passengers on the Mary & John in 1630 similar to the Mayflower in that 400 years later descendants meet each other and find our ancestors knew each other, worshipped together. But the best gift so far was two weeks ago researching for a dear friend I've known for more than 40 years to discover that we are distant cousins as we both descend from Mayflower passenger George Soule, and several other couples in early Massachusetts.

I'm new to WT, but not genealogy.  My husband is a descendant of Isaac Allerton and his daughter Remember.  I'm not sure I have time right now to join the project, but I am interested in joining eventually.  I would love to connect to other descendants of Allerton.
by Lynnette Hettrick G2G2 (3k points)
Hi Lynette, Whenever you're ready to join the project, let me know. You have Mayflower and Allerton in your G2G tags so you will know if anything concerning either is happening here in the forum.

I am descended from Giles, Stephen and Constance Hopkins, Edward Doty, John Howland, Elizabeth, John, and Joan (Hurst) Tilley, William and Mary Brewster, and Francis Cooke. Being able to fill in more details on my own family tree while at the same time putting in some volunteer work for the project seems like a no-brainer. I've only been a WikiTree member for one week and (though not new to genealogy) am still in learning mode here. So I'm happy to get assigned to any grunt work that needs to be done--I am retired and have time to dig in.
by Jen Hutton G2G1 (1.2k points)
Hi welcome to Mayflower Project. I will have some more "grunt work" available soon.

Make sure you add mayflower to your G2G tags (the green things on the top right side of your profile. You currently have two hatton and yelverton.

William Bradford was my fifth cousin,ten times removed. I am related to him to my Norcross and Springer lines. My side of the family is confirmed. It won't take much to confirm William Bradford's side of the family.

My name is Jerry and I have been on WikiTree since 2016. I've recently connected the dots back to Constance Hopkins. Hopkins-5, and Nicholas Snow, Snow-4, who are my 8th Great Grand parents.. Snow was my Grandmothers Maiden Name. I had some help from Chet Snow, who confirmed my research.  So, yes I would like to join the Mayflower project.

Have two identified Pilgrim Uncle's on the Mayflower-Edward Fuller and Samuel Full. However, many of my other ancestor's lines have not been identified but by common last names with other Pilgrims-Reynolds, Gardiner, Thompson, Brewster, Brown. I have a lot of cousin detective work to do!

I have two known ancestor passengers who are 10th Great-Grand Uncles: Edward Fuller and Samuel Fuller. But, I have many more questions with aunt/uncle relationships and last names in common with other passengers, but no lineage link! Whew, there is a lot of work to be done during this period.

Hello my name is Candice Hines. My profile is Cross-4010. I am a teacher in Maryland. My Grandmother started our genealogy research about 10 years ago and I have been trying to fill in the blanks since then. She was able to find three well documented mayflower ancesters Stephen Hopkins, Francis Cooke and Mary Allerton. We have discovered that there may be more, still working on it. I would love to be able to find out more about the first two generations of the mayflower. I started working on my mothers side and she might have a connection as well. Thank you

Thanks Candice and Welcome to the Mayflower Project.
