A sub-project of the Puritan Great Migration, "PGM Beyond New England" includes profiles of emigrants who came to New England between 1620 and 1640 then subsequently left to reside someplace else. Many returned to England, some went to Barbados, Virginia, Long Island, etc.

WANT TO JOIN  and help improve these profiles?  Respond to this post (answer, not comment) and I'll be in touch with you... 

Being a member of the Puritan Great Migration project is a prerequisite.

Many of my ancestors who came to New England were United Empire Loyalists who came to Cape Breton around the time of the revolutionary war.  Not much information available for early wettlers in Nova Scotia, but I would like to help if I can and if you are looking for Loyalists.

Cheryl, I'd be happy to help with that sub-project.  I have PGM ancestors who themselves left NE for Long Island, Westchester, and upstate New York, a couple who returned to England, and others whose descendants went there and further.

Cheryl and all,

I too have many PGM lines from Nova Scotia, both due to loyalist moves but also resettlement after French and Indian war. Since these are autosomally verified, and I have a good paper tree, I would hope to contribute.  Names in question include Eisenhower, Dexter ,and Richardson in the current era.

I would help improve profiles, especially of Long Islanders. I am just not sure how much time I could devote since I have been spreading myself thin.

Lucy, I totally understand about "spreading myself thin," however if you have an interest in this PGM sub-project we would appreciate whatever amount of time you are able to contribute.

Consider yourself a member of the Puritan Great Migration's sub-project, PGM Beyond New England.

I'll be sending you a private message.
