Project summary

The Mayflower DNA Project is using cutting-edge genetic genealogy research based on testing of modern descendants of passengers and crew of the Mayflower's 1620 voyage. The project aims to achieve the following goals:

  • Help resolve unanswered questions about the ancestry and genealogy of the passengers and crew of the Mayflower
  • Create a resource to help modern individuals better understand their connections to Mayflower passengers and crew through genetic genealogy tests

We aim to complete the first phase of the project by the upcoming quadricentennial of the 1620 Mayflower voyage in 2020 (five years from project launch).
