There are over 35 million Mayflower descendants worldwide. Are you one of them? 

The Society of Mayflower Descendants in Michigan has announced a $12.00 annual increase in application fees effective with all applications received after December 4, 2023. There will be no increase for applications already in process. This increase is to partially offset an application fee increase of $25.00 approved by the General Society in Plymouth. See below for the new application pricing.

The Society of Mayflower Descendants in Michigan invites you to join us!

How do I get started?

The new GSMD guidelines require that all supporting records and other documentation be submitted as separate jpg files. If you do not have the ability to provide them in this format, please contact Deputy Historian Lee Bennett, who will assist you with an alternative solution.
