Utah Society of Mayflower Descendants

Welcome to Our Site

Welcome to the official web site for the Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Utah. Please take a look at our newsletter on our news page. This society is a nonprofit hereditary organization dedicated to preserving the legacy of our Mayflower ancestors through genealogical and historical research, commemorative activities, and educational outreach. In the spirit of the brave souls who sailed the Mayflower to the shores of Plymouth in 1620, the society celebrates the ideals of democracy and religious freedom that brought the Pilgrims to this land. The Utah Mayflower Society was founded in 1948.  The Utah Mayflower Society is an official state society of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants headquartered in Plymouth, Massachusetts.

You are eligible to join the General Society of Mayflower Descendants if you can document your descent from one or more of the Mayflower passengers. The names of these passengers, plus instructions for joining the society, are found in the “how to join” link on the menu above. The other links contain information on the Utah Mayflower Society history, the Mayflower Compact,  a list of officers in the state of Utah, other information for members, and Mayflower-related links.

Whether you plan to join the society or you just want to learn more about the Mayflower voyage and our Pilgrim fathers, please take some time visiting these pages.  We think you will find them of interest.
