News from the General Society of Mayflower Descendants
Happy Fall, Mayflower Cousins,
Three-hundred ninety-nine years ago, our ancestors were "crossing the vast and furious ocean" to make their new home in a strange wilderness. We can't imagine the hopes, fears and discomfort that accompanied them on that 66 day voyage, but we are grateful that they had the courage to make the journey.
We hope that you were able to attend our GBOA meeting in Denver. We had a great time, and it is always good to see our fellow members again. Thank you for your advice and comments to help make our Society better, and we hope you were able to learn something new. All the reports and minutes from the meeting will be published in the upcoming Mayflower Quarterly in the coming spring.
