This list is for research and sharing of information on those people who came to New England on the First Ships, their lives, why they came here, their ancestors and descendants wherever they may be, as well as those who married into these families. The First Ships include The Mayflower, The Fortune, The Anne, The Little James and certain other early ships that brought passengers associated with those now known as Pilgrims.
The people of the First Ships can loosely be described as those we now call "Pilgrims" and were at one time known as "Old Comers" or "First Comers".
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free to create a database to share your information; use the files area to upload your gedcom or other genealogical or historical document; use the photos area to display your ancestors connected with these lines or artwork relating to early colonial New England; and the links area to promote your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.
