Be Prepared for Changes on

If you are watching any of your ancestors in the Family Tree and have asked to have FamilySearch send you a weekly update, you may "hit the jackpot" with changes to a famous or infamous relative. The list above is for Francis Cooke, a Mayflower passenger. I get about two dozen or more changes to this person every week. The interesting thing is that the information about all of the Mayflower passengers has been printed in the Silver books for years. There is no controversy.

In addition, the New England Historic Genealogy Society has a new website for the 400th Anniversary of the Landing of the Mayflower. Suffice it to say that there is absolutely no reason for any controversy, i.e. changes need to be made to any of the Mayflower passengers or any of their five generations of descendants. The fact that there are this many changes every week is an indication of low level of awareness of these basic sources.

  1. Amen, James! I have considered taking the passengers off my watch list due the this group that just won't quit. I wish they would just make them all read only at some point. Hope all is going extra well on your mission. From what I have seen it looks like you are both loving it.
