Welcome to the Kansas Society of Mayflower Descendants
Thank you for taking the time to review our Kansas Mayflower website. It has much to offer. Please take some time to review the website including information on joining our Society, links to interesting and informative genealogical and historical references, scholarship application and much more.
Do you descend from a Mayflower passenger?
You may have heard a family story or rumor that you descend from a passenger on the Mayflower. Initially, the story may not seem plausible. However, consider that there are estimated to be more than 30 million Mayflower descendants and the story becomes very plausible.
The Join Our Society tab provides information to help guide you through the process. There are many resources available to those of you interested in tracing your heritage to 1620 and the landing of the Mayflower. Please join us.
The General Society in Plymouth
The tab captioned General Society will take you directly to the website for the General Society of Mayflower Descendants. The Kansas Society is proud to have had Kansas member Jane E. Groves Riddell Hurt serve as the Governor General of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants for the term of 2020-2023.

Landing at Plymouth
The Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Kansas was organized in 1914 as a lineage organization perpetuating the memory of the Pilgrims. The Pilgrims were passengers aboard the Mayflower on it's maiden voyage to the New World. Their journey ended on the shores of Plymouth in December of 1620.
Descendants of Mayflower passengers who are 18 years of age or older are eligible for Kansas membership and those less than eighteen years of age are eligible for junior membership. Those requesting membership must be able to document lineal descent from any of the 102 passengers. Documented descent must be approved by the State Historian and the Historian General before membership is granted. Kansas residency is not a requirement.
If you have a blood relative who is already a member of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, your necessary documentation may be greatly reduced. Submit the Kansas Membership Form with the appropriate fee to begin the application process.
The Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Kansas meets twice a year in May and November. Join others who share the same heritage and carry on the legacy of our Pilgrim ancestors.
The Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Kansas is an IRS 501(c)(3) organization.
