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.

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

More information on the individuals and families of the Mayflower

"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."

          Perfect gift

          My wife is proud of her Mayflower lineage and as I never know what to give her for her birthday, this was the answer.

          Mayflower Jacket

          The Jacket is lovely, but ran a size small - If I zip it up, it's skin tight. It’s a medium; I’m 5’7” and 131 lbs.

          Love these Jackets

          I purchased two of these. For my wife and her sister who are descendants of William White. Quality is great. They look awesome and had people at Thanksgiving dinner very curious. Lots of fun.

          Love my jacket!

          My embroidered jacket is a Christmas gift from my husband, but I got to check it out before it got wrapped and I love it! Thank you so much!

          Embroidered Mayflower “descendants” jacket

          Received my jacket and was not disappointed. The quality of your products is exceptional. I’d love to have another one that was heavier to wear in cooler weather. I think this one is going to be great for spring and fall. Now I will watch to see if you ever offer a heavier one.
