Subject: [CUTHBERTSON] First Ships discussion list
Date: Mon, 17 Mar 2003 20:31:49 -0500
I'm pleased to announce a new list called First Ships.
From the description at the list home page:
This list is for research and sharing of information on those
people who came to New England on the first ships, their lives, why
they came here, their ancestors and descendants wherever they may
be, as well as those who married into these families. The ships
include the Mayflower, the Fortune, the Anne and the Little James.
There are many mailing lists focusing on the individual surnames of
many of these people but this list brings them together so we can
study them as a group, as family units, and as individuals.
Feel free to create a database to share your information; use the
files area to upload your gedcom or other genealogical or
historical document; the photos area to display your ancestors
connected with these lines or artwork relating to early colonial
New England; and the links area to promote your favorite websites.
And of course I encourage all to participate in the daily discussions.
I'm very excited about the future of the FirstShips list and I
expect it will be a great success.
There are many discussion areas for Mayflower descendants and I
felt there was a need for a list to discuss all the people of that
group who first came to New England including those who came on The
Fortune, The Anne and The Little James. Thus this list was created.
for sign up information.
Permission is granted to forward this message to anyone you think
might be interested.
