TAG 89.4 at press with the origin of Mayflower passenger Susanna (Jackson) (White) Winslow

The new issue of TAG, vol. 89, no. 4, is now at press and will mail to all subscribers in two to three weeks.

This issue leads off with the groundbreaking discovery by Sue Allan, Caleb Johnson, and Simon Neal of the origin of Susanna (Jackson) (White) Winslow, one of the two women who gave birth on board the Mayflower in 1620. This issue completes a blockbuster volume including the identity of three out of the 102 original Mayflower passengers: Susanna, her first husband William White, and William’s niece, Dorothy May Bradford, first wife of Governor William Bradford. Also in this issue are colonists in New England, New Jersey, and Virginia; a new feature including short discoveries of colonists’ origins; a nineteenth-century family with four pairs of twins (and four other children as well); an English village Typhoid Mary; and more.

TAG 89.3 published with Mayflower origins

The new issue of TAG, vol. 89, no. 3, is now at press and will mail to all subscribers just after Christmas.

This issue concludes the article begun in TAG 89.2 revealing the origin and kinship of Mayflower passengers William White and his niece, Dorothy (May) Bradford. Issue 89.3 contains a detailed genealogy of their shared ancestry among the Cross and May families, including Dorothy’s grandfather’s association with the Elizabethan sect known as the “Family of Love”.

Other material included in this issue ranges from colonial Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut, to Maryland and Georgia.
