I am a descendant of eight Mayflower passengers: John Alden, Priscilla Mullins, William Mullins, Richard Warren, William Bradford, William Brewster, Mary Brewster, and Love Brewster. My membership in the General Society of Mayflower Descendants is through William Bradford.
I own the following Mayflower Silver Books and can do look-ups:
I am also a descendant of Roger Conant of Salem and am very interested in this part of my family tree. I suspect that I am a descendant of the Jacobs family from the Salem Witch Trials, but I have not been able to prove that.
I have an original (1887) copy of "A history and genealogy of the Conant family in England and America" that has been handed down through the family, but it's just as easy for anyone to look that up online here: https://archive.org/details/historygenealogy00cona/page/n3/mode/2up
The Electra Cemetery is on property that belonged to my family several generations back. I am related to most of those who are buried there in one way or another, and I enjoy tracking down these lines. I am in the process of trying to get everyone added to this category: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Category:Electra_Cemetery%2C_Electra%2C_Florida
My great-grandmother, Nannie is a mystery to me. She died when my grandfather was young. Through the wonderful help of other members here in Wikitree I have been able to fill in some of the blanks, but I would like to know more.
I have discovered that researching my husband's Italian family is a totally different type of adventure from my usual PGM/Mayflower work. I would have never uncovered the information I have without the help of Wikitree members. The discovery of the paperwork related to Michelina Corvetta opened up a whole new collection of records to review.
