Event Details

On 11 Nov 1620, the Mayflower and its passengers landed at Plymouth Rock after an arduous 10-week journey from England with 102 passengers and crew of 30.  Do you descend from one of these brave passengers or crew members?  Explore the evidence required to join a lineage society as prestigious as the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, and explore the resources available from the Mayflower Society and New England Historical Society to assist you with this task.
