Membership in the Maryland Mayflower
Society includes membership in the national society, the General Society of
Mayflower Descendants and a subscription to its magazine, The Mayflower
Quarterly. In addition, members of the Maryland Society receive its
newsletter, The Maryland Mayflower Log, twice annually. The Maryland
Society holds two dinner meetings annually for members and their guests.
In addition, if you join the
Mayflower Society, you will be honoring the memory of those forefathers who
helped set the pattern for our great democracy, and you will enter into the
fellowship of people who share a common history and ancestry in the passengers
of the Mayflower. Through the programs of the Society, that common
history can be made to come alive for you. And if you choose to personally
participate in the Society's programs (education of school-age children, for
example), you can help make that history come alive for others.
By joining the Society of
Mayflower Descendants, your genealogical record will be filed in a secure
place, both with the Maryland Society and with the General Society in Plymouth,
Massachusetts. With your records on file with the Society in this manner, it
will be easier for your descendants to establish their genealogical lines. It
will be an invaluable gift to your descendants to make your family heritage
available to them in this way.
