MARK SCHMIDT, “THE MAYFLOWER SOCIETY HOUSE AND THE RED CROSS: HOW THE HOUSE WAS USED DURING WORLD WAR II” In December 1941, just as the United States was entering World War II, the Winslow House became the property of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants. It was then turned over to the Plymouth chapter of the Red Cross, and it served as their headquarters for the duration of the war. This is their story.
In 2021, the Mayflower Society launched a very popular Lecture Series covering a variety of Mayflower Pilgrim-related topics including their odyssey, their life and times, their maritime experience and, of course, genealogy! Please plan join us to enjoy learning more about Mayflower Pilgrim and genealogy topics from the comfort of your home in 2022.
Monthly webinar lectures are free and open to the public. No pre-registration required. Check Here for webinar information.
