Many of us are familiar with the story of the Mayflower, but who exactly were the passengers? Where did they come from? Why did they migrate? Where did they settle after Plymouth Colony? Join leading early New England experts to explore the movements and motivations behind the voyage of the Mayflower and how they relate to later arrivals during the Great Migration. This online conference will illuminate the interpersonal, ideological, and geographic connections of the passengers; explore the motivations behind their departure from England; and show how subsequent generations settled across New England, parts of Canada, and beyond, informing today’s diaspora of Mayflower descendants.
Recordings of each session are available to registrations through August 31st. A live Q&A will take place on May 9 from 2:00-3:00 PM. Live link will be sent out via GoToWebinar while URL for all conference sessions and handouts will be sent out by NEHGS.
