Finding Your Ancestors Genealogy Lecture: Peggy Baker

The Mayflower Society presents its 2019 summer lecture series: Finding Your Ancestors. 


Our first speaker in the series is Plymouth historian Peggy Baker. Listen to the podcast here. 


Your family tree is the story of you. Who are your ancestors? What did they look like? Who did they love? And how did it all lead to you?

This is what genealogy is all about, and the answers are waiting to be discovered. Join local experts at 6:30 p.m. on the third Thursday of each month, from May through October, for a new, free lecture series at the Mayflower Society House. Our first in the series: Stephen Middaugh’s Revolution with Peggy MacLachlan Baker.

Intensive research on the descendants of Pilgrim Thomas Rogers led Baker to begin investigating her own Scottish ancestors. Baker will discuss a surprising story she unearthed, as well as the tactics that led to the discovery of her unknown connection to colonial American history. Genealogy can follow strange and wonderful paths, particularly if you remember to trace both male and female lines!

Peggy MacLachlan Baker is the Pilgrim Thomas Rogers researcher for the GSMD Silver Books Project, an Honorary Life Member of the Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants and Director Emerita of The Pilgrim Society and Pilgrim Hall Museum.

Join us for our next free lecture on Thursday, June 20th: Solving Family Mysteries with DNA with Lisa Pennington.

Each lecture is recorded and shared as a podcast to our YouTube channel.
