The Great Migration Study Project

Robert Charles Anderson, FASG, Director

The 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. The project’s published works contain thousands of sketches, many of which are also included in our Great Migration databases, available to NEHGS members. They are necessary resources for any genealogist, historian, or descendant with early New England interests and connections.
