Registration Procedure

Can you trace your ancestry back to Pilgrim William White, who came to Massachusetts in 1620 aboard the Mayflower?

Are you already a member of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants (GSMD)?

Then you are eligible to join The Pilgrim William White Society by filling out this membership application and returning it with your dues to the address listed therein.  As a member of The Pilgrim William White Society, you will receive its quarterly newsletter and are cordially invited to participate in the Society’s activities.

Since all lineage members of The Pilgrim William White Society share a common ancestor, your family tree will instantly gain many more branches as you explore your relationships to other members. You will undoubtedly discover many distant cousins--perhaps some in your own hometown--you never knew you had!

Please direct all lineage inquiries to David Grinnell, Lineage Research Committee Chairperson, at dvytca@gmail.com.

Lineage Membership

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.

Friend Membership

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.
