Pilgrim Roots of the Great Migration

I am greatly looking forward to joining a very special Pilgrim-themed ancestral tour in the United Kingdom later this summer!

In August, the New England Historic Genealogical Society and American Ancestors will host an exclusive tour, "Pilgrim Roots of the Great Migration," led by world-renowned Great Migration author Robert Charles Anderson. We will be based in Nottingham and will visit Scrooby Manor and environs, as we explore the deep roots of the Great Migration as we learn about the formation of a group of Separatists and follow in the footsteps of William Bradford, William Brewster, John Howland, Edward Winslow, and others.

This will be the first in a series of three Pilgrim-related tours "Pilgrim Pathways" hosted by NEHGS; future tours will be based in Leiden (The Netherlands) "Pilgrim Escape to Leiden" in 2019 and Plymouth (UK) "The Mayflower Embarkation" in 2020.

In this first tour, we will visit St. Peter's, Droitwich, in Worcestershire, the birthplace of Edward Winslow; Scrooby Manor, the site of William Brewster's Separatist meetings; Austerfield Church, with associations to William Bradford, and Fenstanton, in Huntingdonshire, the birthplace of John Howland.
