In that spirit I am passing along a link to a group I had heard about and recently attended a presentation by one of their founders. I came away impressed by the egalitarianism of the group. It's the Guild of Colonial Artisans and Tradesmen 1607-1783. Prerequisite for membership is lineal descent from anyone who settled in the 13 Colonies AND either was an acknowledged artisan/tradesman in the Old Country (often by guild membership or an apprenticeship) or practiced such a career here. There are groups for descendants of Colonial ministers, tavernkeepers, and governors, so why not for the people who literally built America?
If you are Mayflower descendant there is a good chance your ancestor qualifies. Two of my eight signed on as servants and became yeomen, so do not qualify, but six others do: William Brewster (printer), Francis Cooke (wool comber), John Alden (cooper), Thomas Rogers (camlet merchant/draper), William Mullins (shoe and boot maker), and Richard Warren (merchant.)
Check their list of ancestors enrolled and see if your pilgrim ancestor (or descendant) is on their list. You might be surprised to find what they actually thought they were going to be when they grew up.
