The Washington Society of Mayflower Descendants is a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational organization of nearly 475 Mayflower ‘cousins’

The mission of this Society is to educate and remember the passengers fleeing religious prosecution: to honor their strength, courage and abiding faith; and to maintain and defend their principle of civil and religious liberty to which they committed their lives. We are dedicated to preserving the history of our Mayflower ancestors through genealogical and historical research, including telling the story of the Pilgrims to keep their story alive and encouraging a passion for history. We celebrate the Pilgrim Spirit and fellowship with others who share a common ancestry and are interested in advancing awareness in the history and contributions of the Pilgrims.

We are amateur genealogists & historians who have verified our lineage, though vital records, wills, land grants, and other records, to the highest of genealogical standards, proving our family line descends from one of the 51 passengers who survived the Atlantic crossing and that first Plymouth winter. We honor the memory of our Pilgrim mothers and fathers, whose belief in religious freedom, civil liberties and undying courage became the bedrock upon which our nation was built.
