GSMD application fees are not refundable: If and when the Maryland Historian approves your application for transmission to the General Society of Mayflower Descendants in Plymouth for final review, and hopefully approval, a non-refundable GSMD fee of $150 must accompany it. We will ask for that fee at the time we send your completed and Maryland approved application to you for signature.
