Welcome to the
Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants !

We have several events every year and welcome your attendance at each one. Please bring along friends, relatives, and neighbors who have an interest in our Society. The benefits of membership in Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants are many, the best of which involve get-togethers with others who wish to celebrate the memory of our Pilgrim ancestors.

Three times a year we publish our newsletter, The Compact, which has articles of interest to all members. As a member of Massachusetts Mayflower Society you also belong to the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, so you will receive their Mayflower Quarterly. Between these two publications you'll be kept up-to-date on events such as the 2020 celebration of the 400th anniversary of the landing of the Pilgrims, and other interesting programs and events being presented.

To those reading this for the first time, please take a moment to browse our website to learn more about us. You will find information on how to join, the history of the society, research ideas, see a photo gallery of our latest events, and consult our calendar of events for upcoming programs.

Your membership helps preserve the memory of our Pilgrim ancestors and furthers learning about life in Plimoth Colony. If you are already a member, please consider having your parents, grandparents, children, and grandchildren become members. Many members are descended from more than one Mayflower passenger, and we encourage you to document these additional lines so we may better understand the full complexity of the Pilgrim progeny. You can do this through supplemental applications, for which you pay only a one-time fee. Our entire staff is ready to assist you to complete these applications.

Thank you for visiting our website. Please email or call us if you need any further assistance!
