2014 SOCIETY MEETING

Our Pilgrim Henry Samson Kindred is about to meet on 5 September at the Radisson in Plymouth. It is a time to elect and appoint officers for the next three years - 2014-2017. In this day and age, where we live is not a problem. Business is conducted via email.

Our marvelous members are scattered all over this wonderful country and Canada. Have YOU thought about being an officer? This is YOUR chance. Below, all the offices are listed. You might not be aware of how many there are for the Kindred!

The General Society of Mayflower Descendants Historic Site Tour 2013 visited Henry's place of baptism and was given an entire day in the area. The Kindred presented the church with $500 and a plaque honoring our Founders, Caroline Lewis Kardell, Joseph Howland Wood, and Stacy B. C. Wood. Stacy gave me the names and wanted them listed in that order!

In September 2015, we hope to do another tour and visit Henry's place of baptism again which is in Henlow, England at St. Mary's.

DNA SEMINAR
Speaker: DARREN MARIN
Date: Saturday, 6 September 2008
Time: 1:30 - 4:00 p.m.
Place: Plymouth, Mass. in the Radisson Hotel Ballroom
Program: DNA & GENEALOGY

The DNA Committee invite and encourage Plymouth area people to attend this debut of structured education. We believe the program is ideal in showing how DNA and Genealogy can work together in eliminating many of our “stone walls.” We trust that members of the Plymouth area genealogical societies and others will appreciate this opportunity without having to travel far from home. We hope to see a large turnout and are excited about this new program.

The seminar is being supported by private donations. There is no fee and you do not need to be a Mayflower member. In order to determine attendance, the committee does request that people pre-register.

To pre-register: by Email: MFSDNA@gmail.com
or by regular mail: DNA Seminar; P.O. Box 588; Sunol, CA. 94586

Since early 2007 our speaker Darren Marin has been with Family Tree DNA which is associated with the Arizona Research Labs, one of the world’s leading authorities in the field of Y-DNA genetics. He is a California native who graduated from the University of Houston with a Degree in Italian Studies. Darren’s interest in his own family roots helped draw him to Family Tree DNA where he has become a favorite speaker.

Sponsored by the DNA Committee of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants.


THE SAMSON KINDRED Y-CHROMOSOME DNA PROJECT
We are seeking descendants of Pilgrim Henry Samson who arrived in 1620 on the ship Mayflower and of Abraham Sampson who is first found in the Plymouth records as living in Duxbury in 1638. Our goals are to validate existing lineages and to develop a DNA database, or signature, of Abraham and Henry in order to identify and dispel existing confusion of their many descendants. See More

THE SAMSON CHURCH: ST. MARY THE VIRGIN CHURCH, HENLOW, BEDFORDSHIRE
St. Mary the Virgin Church is probably best known to Americans as the parish church of Elizabeth Tilley Howland and the plaque to her memory there. Often overlooked is the fact that it was not only the parish church of her parents, "Mayflower" passengers John and Joan Hurst Tilley, but also Pilgrims Edward and Ann Cooper Tilley (Elizabeth's uncle and aunt), John Dunham, Jr., a son of later arrival (between 1628 and 1632) John Dunham and Susan Kaino/Cainehoe, John Masterson who never made it to Plymouth from Leiden, and our Pilgrim Henry Samson.
