A mailing list for anyone who has an interest in genealogy or history regarding ancestors who came to New England on the First Fleet, their lives, the reasons they came here, their ancestors and descendants wherever they may be, as well as those who married into these families. The First Fleet includes that group of ships known as The Winthrop Fleet including the ships: the Arbella, the Ambrose, the Jewel, the Talbot, the Charles, the Mayflower (not the Pilgrims' Mayflower), the William and Francis, the Hopewell, the Whale, the Success, and the Trial. Also included are certain other early ships that became part of "The Great Migration".
There are many mailing lists focusing on the individual surnames of many of these people but this list brings them together so we can study them as a group, as family units, and as individuals.
Feel free to create a database to share your information; use the files area to upload your gedcom or other genealogical or historical document; use the photos area to display your ancestors connected with these lines or artwork relating to early colonial New England; and the links area to promote your favorite websites.
If you have any further ideas on how to make this a successful project be sure to share them.
I hope you enjoy the list.
