MAYFLOWER SOCIETY –Episode 5–An update on my application process and a link to a presentation

I wrote my last post about my journey to join the Mayflower Society, in December 2019.  I thought I would give you a quick update.

If you want to read my previous posts about my journey to join the society please click here Mayflower Society

My completed application package was mailed on 27 Jan 2020.  The approval process in Plymouth is said to take 3-5 months in normal situations.  One thing we can say about 2020, it hasn’t been normal. 

The process for everything can be delayed in these unusual times we are living in.  Reviewing and approving society applications is no different.  It’s been over 6 months now and I still have no word. 

However, I completely understand.  I have heard that they are known to be up to applications that were submitted in December 2019.  Mine can’t be too far behind, since it should have arrived in Plymouth the last days of January or first days of February.

I’d like to say I’m waiting patiently…………but, I’m pretty much checking my mail all the time to see if there is an envelope from the Mayflower Society.  I even have our mail lady (who’s the best ever) on the lookout.  Our boxes are 3 miles from our house so we don’t check the mail each day.  She says she’ll text me if she sees anything from the Mayflower Society. 

I continue to be hopeful that I will hear back soon.

In the meantime, my friend and fellow blogger Debby Warner Anderson (Debby’s Family Genealogy Blog) and I are co presenting to the San Diego Genealogical Society this Saturday, July 11th at 10 a.m. via Zoom.  Our topic ~ How to Find Your Mayflower Passenger AncestorThis presentation is open to all, so if you’d like to register to attend, here is the link 

You’ll be among the first to know, when I get that envelope in the mail.

Happy hunting,

Michigan Girl
