General Society of Mayflower Descendants

Since 1897


This is to let you know some of our members and societies may have received an e-mail requesting gift card donations for less fortunate Veterans. It appears to be sent by the Governor General but the actual email address is not correct. 

Phishing is the fraudulent practice of sending emails purporting to be from reputable companies in order to induce individuals to reveal personal information, such as passwords and credit card numbers.

GSMD does NOT request gift cards in support of any individual or group.  ANY appeals of this sort do not have GSMD support and we encourage our Member Societies to treat them as illicit business and phishing.

To make the best tansy

In 1620, a brave group of 102 men, women, and children sailed across the Atlantic on the Mayflower in search of a better life.

In 1897, the General Society of Mayflower Descendants was established to pay homage to the Pilgrims through preservation and education.

The Mayflower Society now has a network of more than 54 member societies across the world. Our members have formed lifelong bonds together while honoring the sacred legacy of our ancestors.
