I believe my family can be traced thru the book published by the Mayflower Society ..... Mayflower Families Thru 5 Generations ... EATON). Does anyone know if there would be any records for the 6th, 7th generations which the Mayflower Society is collecting? How would I find this out?

If I can prove my line to the Published Fifth Generation book put out by the Mayflower Society do they except the first five generations as already "proved"?

You asked:

"I believe my family can be traced thru the book published by the Mayflower Society ..... Mayflower Families Thru 5 Generations ... EATON). Does anyone know if there would be any records for the 6th, 7th generations which the Mayflower Society is collecting? How would I find this out?

If I can prove my line to the Published Fifth Generation book put out by the Mayflower Society do they except the first five generations as already "proved"?"


Susan Roser, the historian for the Canadian society, but speaking of procedures for any of the states, has addressed this question at the Canadian Society of Mayflower Descendants website:

http://www.rootsweb.com/~canms/canada.html

First, your second question, whether the first five generations are accepted is answered, "Due to the excellent work of the Five Generations Project of the General Society, and other researchers, all of the Mayflower families (with the exception of some Howland branches) are represented in print for the first four (MFIP) or five (MF) generations, so these early generations are easy to document. If you do not have access to these publications, not to worry, the Historian does."


Second, the matter of generations beyond what is covered in the silver books may be answered by this comment of Susan's if you believe you know your line and are looking for proof. The link for the form is

http://www.mayflower.org/apform.htm


"There is a way to find out if someone else has joined the society based on your line, you can send a synopsis of your lineage to the General Society and ask them to do a search for a well documented paper that matches yours. A synopsis form can be printed from the General Society’s site (where you will also find their address) and should be filled out (Mayflower passenger #1) and sent along with $5 (U.S.). If a previously approved, well documented paper is found, you will be sent a copy, and will be able to use the data & sources from that paper, up to the point where your lines branch off, which means your documentation efforts will begin at this point. If the search proves successful, this could be extremely beneficial and cut down on the number of generations you will have to document."

The best way to find if there are any further generations on file with the Mayflower Society is to send a synopsis (form avail at <http://www.mayflower.org>;) with your lineage through you with $5 to the Historian General. Address is on the website. She will check their files and send you a photocopy of the most recent well-documented lineage that follows your line.

To answer your second question: Yes, the data documented in the published Five Generations of the Mayflower Families is recognized as a source, and no futher proof is required.

It would help if The Mayflower Society web site mentioned the $5 fee
on the "Proposed Application Review Form". I sent in a completed form
for my wife's line with a SASE and all I got back was a blank copy of the
same form (still no mention of the $5 dollar fee) and info on joining
the society.

I tossed it in the trash and chaulked up my experience as a waste of time,
stamp and an envelope.

Maybe I'll resubmit now that I know more....

Thank You,

Jim

Just curious, Is there a fee for joining the Mayflower society? I've been all over the site looking for info, and can't find anything, including the afore mentioned 5$ for submitting the "Proposed Application Review Form".

Fees for joining the General Society of Mayflower Descendants varies by state as each state sets their own fees for application as well as yearly dues. Go the contact site on the Mayflower site, and check with the state in which you wish to join.

Interesting double entendre with the way you spelled "except"/(accept)...it could be used both ways!

I was on the website today and the preliminary fee was $20. Where does it say the fee is $5? Cheryl

If you look at some of the dates on the posts, you will find they are over 10 years old. The fees were lower then.
