Rowley Family




Mayflower Descendant



The Mayflower Descendant, A: Magazine: of: Pilgrim Genealogy: and: History [MD] was originally sent free to all Society members.  George Ernest Bowman, founder of the Massacusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants, was the Secretary for the Society's first 45 years, and the only editor of The Mayflower Descendant for the first 34 volumes, starting in 1899.  After he became ill, and the Great Depression depleted the Society's membership, it was discontinued.  In 1985, publication was resumed with Volume 35, and it has been published semiannually since.  It is published by the Massachusetts Society of Mayflower Descendants, 101 Newbury Street, Boston, Massachusetts 02116.
