Welcome!

 
Welcome to the Kansas Society of Mayflower Descendants
 
Our website exists for three main purposes: (1) to provide information for those who wish to determine if they have Mayflower roots, (2) to promote the purposes of our Society, and (3) to provide a convenient portal for use by our existing members.
 
Do you descend from a Mayflower passenger?
You may have heard a family story or rumor that you descend from a passenger on the Mayflower. Initially, the story may not seem plausible. However, consider that there are estimated to be more than 30 million Mayflower descendants and the story becomes very plausible.
 
The Join Our Society tab provides information to help guide you through the process. There are many resources available to those of you interested in tracing your heritage to 1620 and the landing of the Mayflower. Please join us.
 
The General Society in Plymouth
The tab captioned General Society will take you directly to the website for the General Society of Mayflower Descendants. The Kansas Society is proud to have Kansas member Jane E. Groves Riddell Hurt serving as the Governor General of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants. To hear a message from Jane, please click on the following link.
 
 

 
 
Landing at Plymouth
 
The Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Kansas was organized in 1914 as a lineage organization perpetuating the memory of the Pilgrims. The Pilgrims were passengers aboard the Mayflower on it's maiden voyage to the New World. Their journey ended on the shores of Plymouth in December of 1620.
 
Descendants of Mayflower passengers who are 18 years of age or older are eligible for senior membership and those less than eighteen years of age are eligible for junior membership. Those requesting membership must be able to document lineal descent from any of the 102 passengers. Documented descent must be approved by the State Historian and the Historian General before membership is granted. Kansas residency is not a requirement.
 
If you have a blood relative who is already a member of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, your necessary documentation may be greatly reduced. Submit the Senior Membership Form with the appropriate fee to begin the application process.
 
The Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Kansas meets twice a year in May and November. Join others who share the same heritage and carry on the legacy of our Pilgrim ancestors.
 
The Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Kansas is an IRS 501(c)(3) organization.
