What’s New!

The June 2022 issue of the Buckeye Mayflower has been posted!

We have been making some changes to this website. The pages that apply to our members have been consolidated under a Member Info menu. We have not set it up as a members only section as there is nothing secret there. No login required. There you will find the page to pay your dues (we will start collecting for 2023 in late August), make donations, and forms to update us about changes in your life. We have a new membership coordinator with a new email. You can contact using the contact form on the State Officers page.

The 2022 Scholarship winner has been announced and you can read her winning essay on the Scholarship page.

Thanksgiving is synonymous with the Pilgrims. Why not find out if you share a common heritage with these most brave of our founding mothers and fathers? Information on the pilgrims and Wampanoag has been consolidated under a new History menu.

Are you interested in history and genealogy? Or perhaps you are a descendant of those who crossed over the Atlantic on the Mayflower. The Ohio Mayflower Society is part of a national group, the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, who enjoys history and fellowship. We welcome everyone to attend our meetings. Please look around our site, and come join us! The latest scholarship winner is featured on the Scholarship page and the 2023 competition will be announced in December.
