The Great Migration

From the files of Stephen M. Lawson


Many of the New England ancestors included in Freeman Family Lines arrived in America during The Great Migration. The first phase of this migration, to the end of 1634, is the subject of a three volume series:

The Great Migration Begins: Immigrants to New England 1620-1633

by Robert Charles Anderson
(New England Historic Genealogical Society, Boston: 1995)

Below is a cross reference from this work to Freeman Family Lines immigrant ancestors. Note that there are innumerable other connections with siblings of these ancestors, and that this listing is not intended to be a comprehensive index of the work cited, which has a 148 page index by surname and a 116 page index by first names (plus indexes by places and ships).

Selecting one of the SURNAME links will take you to the top of that ancestral line.
The earliest known ancestor and first location in America is given for each surname.

Note: All page references to the given name are listed. They may not all refer to the same person.
