Searching for local Mayflower Descendants

(From Mary Brown, CT Society of Mayflower Descendants)

Dear Town Historians,

In preparation for the 2020 celebration of the Mayflower Voyage, the CT Society of Mayflower Descendants is researching the impact that the Mayflower had upon Connecticut. We are developing a traveling educational display. Can you tell me if any of your town founders were descendants if Mayflower passengers? I appreciate any help you can give me. Thank you.
