On Saturday, September 9, 2017 at 11:30 the Cincinnati Colony of the Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Ohio held its Colony meeting at the University Club Of Cincinnati.
During this meeting we welcomed a new member to our Colony, Jennifer Dunkirk. Jennifer is a descendant of John Alden.
During her induction into the Cincinnati Colony Jennifer, Lt. Governor Doug van der Zee and Deputy Governor Shaun Smith all recited the Pilgrim Pledge.
The highlight of the meeting was Peggy Reid’s presentation titled: Experience a Mayflower Society – sponsored “Historic Sites Tour” of England, Amsterdam, and Leiden.
Peggy was very knowledgeable about the sites that she went to during her trip. She presented information about locations where many of our ancestors were from. She shared very interesting details about how our ancestors may have spent their time in and around Scrooby, and in Leiden.
She had fantastic hand outs with detail of places and a map of locations where each ancestor came from. We would like to thank Peggy for sharing her knowledge with us.
