How you can help
As a participant
If you are a descendant of passenger(s) from the Mayflower, , you may be able to help the project's research by providing a DNA sample (from saliva). Currently, we are only looking for males who are direct patrilineal descendants (which would typically share the surname of the Mayflower passenger) OR anyone who believes they descend in a straight maternal line (ie mother's mother's mother's etc. mother) from a female Mayflower passenger (or spouse of a male Mayflower passenger) . If you believe you meet these criteria, please contact us via mayflowerdnagmail.com.
We hope to eventually expand the project to consider descendants through other lines.
As a researcher
We are very much interested in working with genetic genealogy researchers, surname project administrators, and Mayflower organizations/genealogists/researchers in order to help guide project goals and research. If you are interested in contributing, please contact us via mayflowerdnagmail.com .
