Pilgrim Family Societies

Family Societies are organizations run by Mayflower descendants with a focus on a particular Pilgrim family and their lineage. Many descendants become involved with one or more Family Societies in addition to being a member of GSMD. As a member of GSMD, you can easily join one of the Family Societies we partner with and endorse.
