Pil­grim de­scen­dants have new on­line tool

Richmond Times-Dispatch - - REMEMBERING -

BOS­TON — Fig­ur­ing out whether you’re a de­scen­dant of a Pil­grim is now just a mouse click away.

A month­s­long ef­fort to dig­i­tize and in­dex the au­then­ti­cated ge­nealo­gies of Mayflower pas­sen­gers has been com­pleted and is avail­able on­line, the New Eng­land His­toric Ge­nealog­i­cal So­ci­ety an­nounced Wed­nes­day.

The so­ci­ety’s Pil­grim data­base project, launched last year with the co­op­er­a­tion of the Gen­eral So­ci­ety of Mayflower De­scen­dants, in­cludes 193,000 birth, bap­tism, mar­riage, death and burial records through five gen­er­a­tions of 50 of the 51 Pil­grims known to have de­scen­dants.
