The 400th anniversary of the Pilgrims disembarking the MAYFLOWER and stepping foot on Plymouth Rock is around the corner! If you are interested in the journey of our ancestors, you'll love this presentation about the MAYFLOWER itself! It is a must attend.

Linda B. MacIver

Essex, England: The Home of the Mayflower?

Somerset Public Library

1464 County Street, Somerset, MA 02726

The voyage of the Mayflower in 1620 is seen as a defining moment in American history with some 10 million living Americans able to trace their ancestry back to the ship’s passengers. The early and final history of the Mayflower will be explored including the ship’s close connections to the county of Essex, England.

Linda is the Civil Records Director for Federal Records for the Massachusetts Genealogical Council and a member of the Massachusetts Society of Genealogists (MSOG) and the Essex (MA) Society of Genealogists (ESOG.) She serves as the New England Representative for the Essex (England!) Record Office.
