On November 28, 2017, the General Society of Mayflower Descendants is proud to participate in #GivingTuesday. This global day of giving invites individuals to celebrate the holiday season by giving back to a cause that is meaningful to them.
Do you want to learn if you are a descendant of a Mayflower Pilgrim?
The silver books that Maggie (5), Mackenzie (9), and Merrill (6) are holding helped them learn they are descended from the Mayflower Pilgrims. They love dressing up every chance they can to tell friends and family about their heritage. They are members of The Mayflower Society along with over 30,000 other genealogy enthusiasts who have proven lineage.
The Mayflower Society publishes records of lineal descent, called the Silver Books, so that all those who descend from the Mayflower Pilgrims are able to find their link to the Mayflower voyage, America's founding, and the profound impact upon Western civilization that resulted. There are over ten million Americans and some thirty million world citizens who are descended from the Pilgrims so there is a good chance we are talking about YOUR ancestors.
Your donation will help make sure we can continue to identify new descendants to tell this important story. It will help us pay for researchers to do the complicated and tedious work required to document and confirm descendants of the Mayflower ancestors from today's growing population.
We are hoping to raise $15,000 so we can publish at least three more books in 2018 but we need additional researchers to do it. We want to help you find your Mayflower ancestors so please donate today to The Mayflower Society to fund qualified researchers for the Mayflower Families Silver Books.
Won’t you give the gift of finding family this holiday season? We are all related, one to another. Help us help you prove it as we continue providing the 'gold standard' of lineage research.
