The Great Migration Study Project
David Allen Lambert will present a program on the New England Historic Genealogical Society Great Migration Study Project. Since 1988, the goal of The Great Migration Study Project has been to create accounts of immigrants to New England from 1620 to 1640. Between these years about twenty thousand English men, women, and children crossed the Atlantic to settle New England. For a century and a half genealogists have been studying these families, and thousands of books and articles have been published as a result.
