The Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Maryland
In remembrance of the Pilgrims who were the first English settlers of New England, their descendants founded the
General Society of Mayflower Descendants on January 12, 1897. The General Society is a federation of
52 State Societies, consisting of the 50 States, the District of Columbia and Canada.
You may be eligible to join the Maryland Society of Mayflower Descendants if you can document your descent from one or more of the passengers on the Mayflower voyage of 1620 that landed on the shores of Plymouth.
The Maryland Society of Mayflower Descendants holds two Society dinner meetings per year. Compact Day is held the Sunday before Thanksgiving, and Spring Dinner is held the third Sunday of April each year.
In 2020, we will be celebrating the 400th anniversary of the Mayflower voyage and the founding of Plymouth Colony in Massachusetts.
