WHAT IS THE GREAT MIGRATION STUDY PROJECT?
"The aim of the Great Migration Study Project is to compile comprehensive genealogical and biographical accounts of every person who settled in New England between 1620 and 1640. Between these years about twenty thousand English men, women, and children crossed the Atlantic to settle New England. For a century and a half genealogists have been studying these families, and thousands of books and articles have been published as a result." Source: http://www.americanancestors.org

Happy family tree climbing!
