Canadian Society of Mayflower Descendants, est. 1980

 

Canadian Society of Mayflower Descendants Commemorates

its 35th Anniversary in 2015

 

 

Are you a descendant of a Mayflower passenger? Consider joining the Canadian Society of Mayflower Descendants (CSMD). This year, the CSMD marks its 35th anniversary. The CSMD is the only recognized society of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants outside the United States.

 

Of the more than one hundred passengers on the Mayflower, almost half died during the harsh first winter of 1620/21 after reaching New England in 1620. Today, millions of North Americans are descended from at least one of the 51 Mayflower passengers known to have had descendants.

 

Many early Mayflower descendants made their way to Nova Scotia individually or as part of the New England Planters migration before the War of Independence, and afterwards, many more followed as Loyalists to Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Upper and Lower Canada.

 

Membership in the Canadian Society of Mayflower Descendants is open to any person over the age of 18 who can document their direct bloodline descent back to a Mayflower passenger. The CSMD welcomes membership inquiries. Take the first step today: obtain a worksheet from our co-historian at cohistorian@csmd.org
