I have been working on this new series of books since 1995, documenting the early generations of ten men who came to Plymouth after the Mayflower, viz:

Mayflower Passenger References

Welcome to my website, where you will find information on my upcoming series of books, Friends of the Pilgrims Series (FPS).  The  series will include the early, documented genealogies (children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren) of the following Plymouth Colony men: John Barnes, John Churchill, Henry Cobb, Daniel Cole, James Cole, John Doane, John Faunce, John Holmes, Samuel Ryder and John Shaw. Many of their descendants married into Mayflower families.
Full transcripts of wills are given in the first three generations along with biographical data and gravestone pictures. All epitaphs that were found and transcribed are included. Most importantly, these early generations are fully documented.
