This is the family history project for descendants of William and Susannah White, passengers of the ship Mayflower, which arrived at Provincetown Harbor, Plymouth Colony in what is now Massachusetts, United States, on 11 November 1620. Please note that their parentage and origins are not known.

We are also tracing the ancestors and descendants of William Vassall, whose daughter Judith married Resolved White. His father John Vassall was the builder and owner of the Mayflower.
