Additions and Corrections to The Great Migration Directory: Immigrants to New England, 1620-1640

By Robert Charles Anderson

On this page we will collect documented changes to the entries in The Great Migration Directory (2015). These changes may include adjustments to the published entries, whether contributed by readers or derived from newly published articles and books. Also, since the criteria used for inclusion of an immigrant in The Great Migration Directory are conservative, evidence may arise which leads to the acceptance of additional immigrants during the Great Migration, which will result in completely new entries. Finally, some of these changes, whether corrections or additions, may result in changes to the indexes.
