Pilgrim Embarkment paintingThe primary purpose of this Web site is to link the members of the Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Georgia with each other and with other Web sites that may enhance their further genealogical search for their Mayflower roots, as well as to inform and guide any potential new members in the search and documentation of their lines of descent from the Pilgrims that arrived in this country aboard the Mayflower in 1620. In addition, we hope to encourage everyone with an interest in our Pilgrim forefathers to pursue that interest and learn more about their place in our country's history. The accurate portrayal of those historic events is a fundamental basis for our society's existence.

Notwithstanding any statement of purposes or powers aforesaid, this organization shall not, except to an insubstantial degree, engage in any activities or exercise any powers that are not in furtherance of its specific and primary purpose.
