One of the most important genealogical and historical sources ever published for New England!

Covering individuals not included in previous Great Migration compendia, this complete survey lists the names of all known to have come to New England during the Great Migration period, 1620–1640. Each entry provides the name of the head of household, English or European origin (if known), date of migration, principal residences in New England, and the best available sources of information for the subject.


"What an inestimable service [Robert Charles Anderson] has done any researcher by combining all the available sources, be they passenger lists, town records, land grants, or letters and diaries. No one could be more demanding or precise in his methods and evaluation of the evidence, nor more persevering and energetic in the face of such an enormous project."
