Society's Active Support of Education About the Pilgrims:
The Society is a nonprofit corporation approved
for tax exempt status under Section 501(c)(3) of the
Internal Revenue Code. The objects of the Society are
primarily educational in nature. With 36 current branches
and over 1500 members, the Society actively supports its
educational purpose by means of national projects (see our
"Projects" page), publications (see our "Books and Insignia"
page), and the local participation of its members through
meetings and projects of its numerous, virtually nationwide
branches (see our "State Branches" page).
We appreciate your interest in the National Society Sons and
Daughters of the Pilgrims. As explained in more detail in
our "Membership" page on this site, a male or female over
the age of 18 is eligible to join our Society, without
regard to religion or place of origin, if he or she is a
direct descendent of a "Pilgrim". That term denotes any
immigrant who settled before 1700 within the territory which
later became the forty-eight contiguous states of the United
States of America.
Literally millions of people qualify for membership in our
Society so we actively encourage you to inquire if you are
interested in joining our Society. We are interested in
having new members in order to give us greater energies and
resources to fulfill our goal of education about the
important and fascinating history of the Pilgrims. Please
feel free to contact me for more information at
firstname.lastname@example.org. Whether or not you join
the Society, we hope very much that you enjoy your time
visiting our website.
In Pilgrim Spirit,
Charles Robert Odom (USA Ret)
