Summary, etc.: "Robert Charles Anderson, FASG, now gives us a new study of the deep roots of the 1630s migrants in their "godly" (Puritan) communities of England. Stretching well back into the 16th century, in Puritan Pedigrees Anderson explores the connections among these first migrants that were genealogical, social, intellectual, and most of all, fundamentally religious. This is the book that will give readers a better understanding of the conditions that led to the voyage of the Mayflower and its landing in Plymouth Colony in 1620--planting the first permanent settlement of New England in Plymouth and ultimately laying the foundation for America" -- Publisher's description.
