Attention: Members of the National Society Daughters of Colonial Wars (NSDCW) and potential members of same. The latest national newsletter contains an announcement that the President's Project will be the wall covering restoration and the preservation of the gallery section of the 120-year-old structure newly renamed the National Pilgrim Memorial Meetinghouse. The General Society of Mayflower Descendants (GSMD, aka The Mayflower Society) bought it recently, as it is on the site of the actual meetinghouse built by the Mayflower passengers who arrived there in 1620. Qualifications include being a female and having an ancestor somewhere in the 13 Colonies between Jamestown (VA, 1607) and the Battle of Lexington (MA) in 1775 - AND who served in the military or held a civic office during one of the many battles that went on. (There are more of them than you'd think.) If you are reading this and are a female, the chances are excellent that you qualify.
If you are a member of Plimoth Plantation you should have gotten word that the Mayflower II - after several years of restoration work - will be relaunched at a ceremony at Mystic Seaport in CT on Sep. 7th. That's where the restoration has been going on. Mystic's site has more information on when you would actually be able to see the Mayflower II underway and when (starting May 2020 in Boston & Plymouth.) Plimoth Plantation is hosting an event revolving around casting a new ship's bell for the Mayflower II from Aug. 31 to Sep. 1st, called Let History Ring: Casting a New Ship's Bell. If you can make it to either event, I would be happy to post your photos here.
Congratulations, Cookes, you have hit the coveted 200 mark. That means 200 unique Cooke descendants have photos and write-ups giving their lineage in the Cooke section. In other encouraging news, yesterday google adsense counted 1,143 unique visitors to this website over the previous 7 days, with 15,732 page views. Thank you, and keep up the good work!
