It may be hard to believe, but the chances of tracing your ancestry back to Mayflower families are rather high. Of 102 Pilgrims who landed in the New World in November 1620, only about half survived. The Mayflower Society compiled a list of 51 possible ancestors. Being the 15th or 16th generation since the memorable journey, the number of potential descendants has greatly increased.
With the help of modern technologies, it’s possible to research your family tree in the comfort of your own home. There are numerous online databases and libraries offering information on Mayflower descendants.
