Welcome to the Gulf Coast Mayflower Colony

The Gulf Coast Mayflower Colony is a chapter of the Society of Mayflower Descendants in the State of Alabama affiliated with the General Society of Mayflower Descendants in Plymouth, Massachusetts.  Our Society welcomes inquiries and appreciates interest in our activities and publications. Our members all have demonstrated direct descent from the Pilgrims or their companions who bravely crossed the gale-ridden Atlantic in the Mayflower in 1620.

We have organized as a society to commemorate the spirit of these brave people who had such strength in times of adversity. Beginning with the signing of The Mayflower Compact, our ancestors created a self-governing community founded upon democratic principles.

Our Colony serves Mayflower members, pending members, potential members and their families across south Alabama. We also have Colony members all along the Gulf Coast as far west as New Orleans, as far east as Tallahassee and all points in between.

You are eligible to join our society if you can provide documentation demonstrating that you are a direct descendant of a passenger who sailed to New England on the Mayflower in 1620.
