The Pilgrim William White Society has two types of membership.
The first is a lineage membership based upon an established line
of descent from William and Susanna White via either one of
their two sons, Resolved White or Peregrine White. Only lineage
members have voting rights. If you are not already an approved
member of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, you will
need to submit an application to that organization through one
of its state
chapters. Once you have proved your descent from Pilgrim
William White to the satisfaction of the GSMD, you are ready to
join The Pilgrim William White Society. Please print out and
complete the lineage
membership application, attach a copy of your approved
GSMD application showing your National membership number, and
mail in the fee with your application.
The second type of membership is as a Friend of The Pilgrim William White Society. You may join as a Friend even though you cannot prove a blood relationship to William White. Just as an example, you may belong to a family that is associated with but not descended from William White, such as the extended family of a half-sibling or daughter-in-law. Such families very often lived in the same settlements, migrated west together and occasionally intermarried. Please print out and complete the Friend membership application and submit it along with your fee.
