Official Website of The Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Wisconsin


Thank you for visiting the official website of The Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Wisconsin. We are one of fifty (50) state societies, plus one in the District of Columbia and one in Canada, under the umbrella of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants (GSMD) which is headquartered in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

The Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Wisconsin is a non-profit lineage society dedicated to preserving the history of our Mayflower ancestors through education and research. We are active participants in the documenting of tens of thousands of Mayflower ancestral lines which may otherwise be lost to history. Members are also provided an opportunity for fellowship with others who share a common ancestry and are interested in advancing awareness in the history and contributions of the Pilgrims.

Members of our society have proven their descendancy from one or more passengers who in 1620 sailed on the merchant ship, Mayflower, from England to what is now Plymouth Massachusetts. To learn about joining, see the list of passengers who left descendants and contact the Historian to begin the process.
