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.

DNA: What to Expect When You're Testing
by Janeen Bjor

Facts and Tips
Ensure your family photos are preserved for generations to come by scanning and storing them on flash drives, external drives and cloud services.

Search the Message Boards for others looking for the same person(s) you're researching. You go to the Board to search but you can ask to be notified of new entries.

Don’t ignore something just because the name is spelled differently from what you expect.
