An Update on the National Pilgrim Memorial Meetinghouse
by Former Governor General Lea Sinclair Filson
For those wishing to stay abreast of news about the Meetinghouse and our fundraising drive, please continue coming back to our blog. This is where we will be adding updates as they become available.
The 41st Mayflower Congress was held September 8-13, 2017 with business sessions being held on Monday, September 11, 2017 and Tuesday, September 12.
It is really encouraging to see the interest our announcement has created with members and those who may have DNA links with the Mayflower Pilgrims.
GROUNDBREAKING PARTNERSHIP ESTABLISHED BETWEEN FAMILY TREE DNA AND GENERAL SOCIETY MAYFLOWER DESCENDANTS (GSMD)
Pioneering company in the field of Genetic Genealogy, Family Tree DNA (FTDNA), is partnering with the General Society of Mayflower Descendants (GSMD)to identify the DNA profile of the Mayflower Pilgrims.
The partnership is a natural progression. Both organizations strive to bring the most accurate information possible to their constituents. Marrying GSMD lineage documentation to FTDNA tests will allow The Mayflower Society to remain cutting edge in the genealogy field.
