Ask a Genealogist: Which William White is mine?

 Permanent link

Question: I was told we were related to William White of the Mayflower.  However my research points to Essex County not Plymouth County, Massachusetts.  Can you advise on a resource for both places for a William White family?

Answer: William White who arrived on the Mayflower died at Plymouth, Mass.  I would suggest the Mayflower Families through Five Generations - Family of William White (Plymouth, Mass., The Generatl Society of Mayflower Descendants, 2006); Robert C. Anderson, The Pilgrim Migration.  Immigrants to Plymouth Colony 1620-1633. (Boston, Mass., NEHGS, 2004).  For the treatment on William White of Ipswich, Mass. who died in 1684 you should consult Robert C. Anderson, The Great Migration.  Immigrants to New England 1634-1635. (Boston, Mass., NEHGS, 2011).  All of these titles are available to purchase from NEHGS.
