Rhode Island Society of Mayflower Descendants



The Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations is a lineage organization founded to:


     1.  honor the memory of our Pilgrim ancestors, the passengers on the Mayflower who landed in
          December 1620 in Plymouth, Massachusetts, and to
     2.  preserve our Pilgrim ancestors' records and history for our membership and for posterity


We were the tenth society chartered by the General Society of Mayflower Descendants of Plymouth, Massachusetts which now has fifty-four member societies throughout the world. We have operated continuously in Rhode Island since 1901 welcoming over two thousand members from Rhode Island and elsewhere who have proven ancestry from passengers on the Mayflower when it landed in Plymouth, Massachusetts in December of 1620.
