Has someone in your family told you that an ancestor was descended from a Mayflower Pilgrim?  We all have family lore to one degree or another.  Some is true and some is not.  Unfortunately if you don’t check it out, you may never know.

Any person able to document their descent from one or more of the Mayflower Pilgrims is eligible to apply for membership in the Mayflower Society.

So, today might begin your journey to find out you are a descendant of one of those brave individuals to cross the Atlantic Ocean back in 1620.  You can check the list of those who travelled on the Mayflower at: Mayflower Passenger List.
