Welcome to the Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Maine
We are a non-profit hereditary society dedicated to preserving the history of our Mayflower ancestors through genealogical and historical research.
Under the governance of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, our state society maintains an active public presence, as well as regular membership gatherings which include historical and educational speakers. In addition, we work hard to encourage public awareness of America's early history through our scholarship program. It is our hope that this site will also serve that purpose.
You may be eligible to join the Maine Society of Mayflower Descendants if you can document your descent from one or more of the passengers on the Mayflower voyage of 1620 that terminated on the shores of New England at Plymouth. The twenty-six Mayflower passengers who are known to have left proven descendants, as well as detailed membership information is included in our becoming a member section, which is linked in the menu to your left.
