Discover vital information about your ancestors in the United States and Barbados from the 1600s to the early 1900s. This large collection includes many birth, marriage, and death registers, as well as publications detailing gravestone inscriptions, wills, and the military dead of the American Revolutionary War.
Did your ancestors come over on the Mayflower? Discover details about them in Mayflower Births & Deaths, from files at Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants and Mayflower Marriages. You can find, for example, Isaac Allerton, the patriarch of one of the founding families of Virginia, in Mayflower Marriages. We learn that he married his first wife Mary Norris on 4 November 1611 in Leiden Holland. His second and third marriages, to Fear and Joanna respectively, are also listed.
As well as some records from Barbados, the following U.S. states are covered in this collection: Connecticut, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, North Carolina, New Hampshire, and Virginia.

You can use the previous and next buttons in the image viewer to navigate through the images in a given volume. If you wish to view the entirety of a volume from the beginning, search by the title of the volume you are interested in and sort results by image number. Select the first result and use the next button to look through the entire volume. Alternatively, you can search by image number if you have an approximate idea of where in a volume you’d like to look.
The search feature uses direct search. It will only search for the exact words you write in the search field. For example, if you search for John Smith the results will give you pages with ‘John’ and ‘Smith.’
All search results will bring you to the page on which your search word has been found and not to an individual transcript. You can then read through the page to find your result.
Image numbers correlate with the individual pages of the PDFs rather than the page numbers used within the volume. Therefore image number one starts with the first image of a volume.
