I am new to genealogy and I would like to know what the difference between a Great Migration database ancestor, and one that appears in the Pilgrim Migration both by Robert C. Anderson.



If you have an ancestor who lived in Plymouth Colony between 1620 and 1633 they would be associated with both the Pilgrim Migration - Immigrants to Plymouth Colony 1620-1633 (NEHGS, 2004), and the Great Migration Database and published series.  However if your ancestors were not Plymouth Colony residents, yet arrived in New England between 1620-1635 they would be part of the Great Migration series being published by NEHGS.
