This important classic work, first published in 1930, lists the names of immigrants to New England during the Great Migration, 1620–1640: more than 3,500 names of passengers on 96 ships. Going year by year, for each person, Banks lists full name, the name of the ship, believed place of origin, and residence in America. The book also includes an essay called “A Study of the Emigrants and Emigration in Colonial Times.” A key source for NEHGS’s Great Migration Study Project, the book also includes comprehensive indexes.
