Winslow Heritage Society
Welcome to the Winslow Heritage Society Website!
Our purpose is to perpetuate the history and honor the memory of the Winslow brothers who first stepped foot in America during the “Great Pilgrimage” beginning with the voyage of the Mayflower in 1620: Edward, b 18 Oct 1595, d 8 May, 1655; John, b 16 April 1597, d 1674; Josiah, b 11 Feb 1605-6, d 17 Dec 1674; Gilbert, b 26 Oct 1600, d (?); Kenelm, b 29 April, 1599, d (buried) 13 Sept 1672...
To assist in the preservation of history pertaining to all Pilgrim families drawn to the shores of America for religious freedom, new frontiers, trade, etc. who participated in the building of a nation...
To celebrate the time honored traditions which began when our forefathers first set foot in Plymouth Colony...
To encourage continued research and education regarding the children of Edward Winslow, Sr., including those in America and in England, and their descendants and to reach out to other kindred family and Pilgrim friends...
To establish a Memorial Fund to be used in memory of the Winslow Family and to encourage and support DNA testing programs either through the General Society of Mayflower Descendants or through established genealogical testing programs.
You are eligible to join "The Winslow Heritage Society" if you can provide documentation demonstrating that you are a direct descendant of one or more of the Winslow brothers or of any Mayflower pilgrim or those who can prove lineage to the ancient lines of Winslow.
The Society meets once a year at the Mayflower Society General Congress in Plymouth, Massachusetts or by teleconference. This is a wonderful forum to meet our cousins and learn about our common heritage.
