Greetings from Salt Lake City and RootsTech2020. If you came to the General Society of Mayflower Descendants (aka The Mayflower Society) booth today, I was the woman in the hot pink "Hail to the Sail 1620-2020" jacket. We had lots and lots of inquiries and It was heartening to speak with so many people who believed they had Mayflower passenger ancestors. We gave them all blue "Mayflower Descendant" ribbons to stick to their name badge. (GSMD members get pink ones.) It will be even more heartening if they all do apply for membership. NOTE: If you come to the GSMD booth and fill out a paper lineage-review request form, it will be hand-carried back to Plymouth, MA and researched by the expert lineage reviewer there to see if your theoretical line is actually a known or plausible line, and then email you in a few weeks with the results. THIS IS FREE DURING ROOTSTECH2020. If you fill out their online version any other time they will charge you $75 (going up in 2021.) Given that so much of what you see online is garbage you will want to find out as quickly as possible if YOUR line is an urban legend debunked years ago but still making the rounds on the Internet -- or a genuine contender. Doing it for free is a fantastic deal. However, you have to fill it out and hand it back in before the GSMD folds up its tent and heads back to Plymouth on late Saturday to take advantage of this offer.
Dr. Maura Mackowski is an Arizona research historian who enjoys the challenge of looking for Mayflower descendants, hers and anyone else's.
