Our Mission

The General Society of Mayflower Descendants is committed to research on the lineal descent of the Mayflower Pilgrims and education about the Pilgrims who traveled aboard the Mayflower in 1620. The Society provides education and understanding of why the Mayflower Pilgrims were important, how they shaped western civilization, and what their 1620 voyage means today and its impact on the world.

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.

Governor General Lisa Pennington's Welcome Message

The Mayflower Society depends on the generosity and support of our members and friends around the world to carry out our mission.
