The Mayflower, having crossed the Atlantic in just over two months, made landfall on Cape Cod in November 1620 and came to anchor in what is now Provincetown Harbor. The ship and most of its passengers remained at that location for more than a month while some of the immigrants explored the Cape in search of a place to settle. Join Robert Charles Anderson and other Mayflower experts as we explore New England and gain an understanding of the challenges facing the Pilgrims in the earliest months and years of settlement. Our tour begins in Boston at New England Historic Genealogical Society before heading to the Mirbeau Inn in Plymouth, our base for five days. We will immerse ourselves in Pilgrim history with visits to Plimoth Plantation, the Pilgrim Hall Museum, the Alden Family Sites, Old Burying Ground, Jabez Howland House, Provincetown Museum, and more. Throughout the trip, we’ll enjoy guidance from talented academic leadership, behind-the-scenes visits, special presentations, and traditional New England fare.
Robert Charles Anderson, Director of the Great Migration Study Project, was educated as a biochemist and served in the United States Army in electronics intelligence. In 1972 he discovered his early New England ancestry and thereafter devoted his time and energies to genealogical research. He published his first genealogical article in 1976, and about the same time began to plan for what eventually became the Great Migration Study Project. In 1983 he received a Master’s degree in colonial American History from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Anderson was elected a Fellow of the American Society of Genealogists in 1978 and has served as Secretary and President of that organization. He became a Contributing Editor of The American Genealogist in 1979, Associate Editor in 1985 and Coeditor in 1993. He has been an editorial consultant to the New England Historical and Genealogical Register since 1989.
