The Mayflower passengers poster shows passengers (top half of poster) grouped by family, and those who made it to the First Thanksgiving one year later (bottom half of poster). It is the most powerful image I've seen of the impact of the hardships they faced that first year—and one of the most effective graphical depictions of historical information I've ever seen.
We have talked several times with the folks at the Pilgrim Hall Museum, which is the institution that created this and from whom we purchase the poster, and they are thrilled, as we are, that there has been such strong interest in this topic and this graphical presentation of what happened that first difficult year.

This poster shows the passengers aboard the Mayflower during its trans-Atlantic voyage of September 6 – November 9, 1620, the majority of whom became the settlers of Plymouth Colony in what is now Massachusetts.
"The Mayflower launched with 102 passengers - 74 male and 28 female - and a crew headed by Master Christopher Jones. About half of these emigrants died in the first winter. There were five Mayflower passengers who died at sea in November/December 1620. Those passengers were followed by forty-five passengers who perished in the bitter first winter of 1620/21. The Mayflower colonists suffered greatly during their first winter in the New World from lack of shelter, scurvy, and general conditions on board the ship.Many Americans can trace their ancestry back to one or more of these individuals who, 'Saints' and 'Strangers' together, would become known as the Pilgrims."View the original list of passengers (PDF, 2.6Mb) from the handwritten manuscript of Gov. William Bradford, written up about 1651 (file link is to the State Library of Massachusetts).Check out the video of a list of well-known descendants of the Mayflower Passengers here.
This outstanding graphic was created for Pilgrim Hall Museum, which holds the world’s most significant collection of original Pilgrim possessions.
We’re able to offer this through a special arrangement with the museum. We appreciate the opportunity to bring it to a much larger audience of history lovers.
To learn more about the Pilgrims and their arrival
We interviewed Donna Curtin, the Executive Director of the Pilgrim Hall Museum, on November 24, 2020. You can watch a recording of that interview, which includes questions from the audience.
Donna’s institution is the one behind the striking images on the poster and we worked closely with her on the development of the foldout. Donna has her PhD. in American History from Brown University. Early in her career, she was an interpreter at Plimoth Plantation. The Pilgrim Hall Museum is the country's oldest continually-operating public museum.
We also have an interview with author and historian Linda Coombs (Aquinnah Wampanoag) about the Native American experience. Linda will discuss the Wampanoag’s experience with the pilgrims’ arrival we well as the effects of an epidemic that swept through and devastated the region just before the pilgrims arrived.
Linda is an author and historian from the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah), the program director for the Aquinnah Cultural Center, and a Plymouth 400 Inc board member.
This interview was part of an ongoing series of “History Camp” interviews with noted authors and historians Thursday nights at 8 pm (Eastern). They are streamed live at HistoryCamp.org/online.

I never received mine. I notified the company and they said “well the post office shows delivery.” Well have YOU ever not had anything lost in the mail? Finally received it in the mail —11-25-23.
This should help me determine if I really did have ancestors on the Mayflower.
This is a very handy little chart and calls my family genealogy into question. fine times
This is a must have poster for any early American history, lover. It is extremely poignant and striking as a framed display.
My poster was damaged. The top of the tube was crushed & the whole long side of the poster is damaged. I wrote here but it bounced back. Please send me the email for customer so I can get a new poster. I took pics of all of it. Thank you.
Hi Betty, I am sorry to hear about the condition of the product you ordered. I will be sending an email to you.
Each family/servant group is grouped and identified by name and age. The before and after approach shows how many died. Wow! My husbands family ties to three of these groups. Fun to “see” how.
My mom loved her new Christmas gift! We are directly descended from people on the Mayflower and it means a lot to be able to say, “look, we are here because this person survived!”
