Canadian Society of Mayflower Descendants

I have to say “Thank You” to Margaret Dougherty, the Deputy Governor of the
Canadian Society of Mayflower Descendants, for sending me notices of two meetings of their society to take place this fall in Canada. It should be noted that non-members can attend these meetings. 

This weekend, September 12th and 13th, the Nova Scotia Colony of Mayflower Descendants holds its annual meeting in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, beginning with a Friday night supper, followed by a day long meeting on Saturday. 

For details, you can go to

Then, on Saturday, October 17, they will hold their annual compact meeting and luncheon. Their guest speaker at this luncheon is Sue de Groot, who will be making her popular Dead and Buried presentation. 

This will be their 35th Annual Compact Meeting and Luncheon. 

Payments and attendance confirmation are due by October 4th

For details, you can go to

Happy Researching!

Happy Thanksgiving!

So, please let me offer a "Happy Thanksgiving!" to our American Cousins! (I have first cousins in Maine, first cousins once removed in Texas, and first cousins three times removed in California).

Canada, in 2005, celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Canadian Society of Mayflower Descendants, and is still going strong <>.

There are four "colonies" in the country (in Toronto, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, and Alberta), with the Canadian society being the first formed outside of the United States.

They published a book for their 25th anniversary detailing their history, and it has many pictures which cover the events and meeting of their four colonies.

The site, which has had over 20,000 visitors since the website first started eight years ago, has an index on Mayflower Research Articles, Mayflower Families Corrections and Additions, and Upcoming Events & Society Meetings.

There is a List of Mayflower Passengers Who Left Descendants, Society Dues & Fees, and Application Procedure & Documentation Requirements.

They have also put online Reports of our Past Guest Speakers, Mayflower Research Articles (Index), and Mayflower DNA Projects.

For a change of pace, please read this interesting article entitled, "Were Cats and Dogs on the Mayflower?", at <>.

And finally, for a bit of fun, knowing that watching football is paramount in any household this weekend (we watch it, too!), visit our Canadian Thanksgiving page at <> and check the graphic at the bottom.
