Life Aboard the Mayflower 1620 
by Lori Coffey
Imagine being stuck on a cruise ship during a pandemic. 
That was very much like the Pilgrims on the Mayflower. 
We all know their story of thanksgiving after that first 
grueling winter of failures and death. 
But how much do we know about this tiny ship with the huge reputation
 on a voyage that would change history? The Mayflower was much 
more than a ship. It was lifeline and home for 102 intrepid survivors, 
where babies were born and heroes created as tempest 
and destruction crashed over them.
The meeting of the society will be via GoToWebinar,
a meeting platform that will allow us to meet virtually.
You must pre-register to attend:
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing an
“invitation” and information/link for joining the virtual meeting/webinar.
About 10 minutes before our meeting click on the invitation link.
We will join you at the time of the meeting and 
will then proceed with our scheduled presentation.

Obituaries - don\'t limit your scope of your research to just the deceased. You may find a relative in the list of survivors or pre-deceased...or pallbearers. These clues help place your relatives at a specific place and a specific time in many cases!
