Silver Books
Mayflower Ancestors

The General Society of Mayflower Descendants (GSMD) meticulously investigates primary records that substantiate the identity of individuals and families that descend from the Pilgrims who traveled on the ship Mayflower in 1620. 

Known first as the 'Five Generations Project' these books, also called the Silver books, are now being researched beyond the first five generations. These avidly collected books are an invaluable tool in genealogy research. Many volumes are available at the GSMD store.
