Greetings! The Society of Mayflower Descendants in Delaware welcomes you to its website. We are one of fifty-two societies in the United States and Canada formed under the auspices of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants which was founded at Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1897. Our membership consists of individuals who have proven their descent from one or more of the passengers who sailed from Holland and England to New England in the fall of 1620 aboard the ship Mayflower, and established an English colony there at a place they named Plymouth, located in what is now Massachusetts. Thirty-seven men and fourteen women of the original 102 passengers aboard the Mayflower have descendants, and genealogists estimate that today, almost four hundred years later, there are over twenty million living persons who descend from those twenty nine Pilgrims.

The 2nd Annual Thanksgiving Remembered Program
A Great Family Time for All Ages
Friday, November 22, 2019 at Bible Fellowship Church
7:00 to 9:00 p.m.
The 60 minute program will be followed by a time of refreshments, games, crafts and hands-on activities. Plymouth Governor William Bradford will relate the history and foundational events behind the uniquely American holiday we celebrate today called Thanksgiving.
The Pilgrims are an unforgettable people whose exploits are iconic of America herself. David and Aaron Bradford share a dramatic retelling in the Governor’s own words who the Pilgrims were, what they did and why. Be inspired by the courage, humility and love that Bradford says epitomized these Pilgrims whose sacrificial love he described as...“A rare example, and Worthy to be Remembered.”
Come, remember and celebrate the faith, love and gratitude to God that inspired the first harvest celebration enjoyed with Native friends and came to symbolize the spirit and soul of a nation. A time of refreshments, training with sword and pike, musket firing, period games, and “make-n-take crafts” will follow.
Anyone wanting a program on the Mayflower or the Pilgrims, may contact David Bradford at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Delaware Society has two members that go to schools or groups. They dress in Pilgrim attire and bring to life the incredible journey of our forefathers.
