Classroom Visits

Our mission is to preserve the history of our Mayflower ancestors through genealogy, historical research, education and donations while providing social and educational opportunities for our members.

The Minnesota Society provides members to visit classrooms to bring the story of the Mayflower Pilgrims alive.  Dressed in Pilgrim attire, the speaker will show a thirteen minute film entitled, “Children of the Mayflower,” and present the history of the Pilgrims.   Educational material on “Five Kernels of Corn,” a Listing of the Children on the Mayflower to name a few will be provided as well as an explanation of life as a child in 1627 Plymouth.  The member will answer questions as well as interact with the audience. 

To arrange your Pilgrim visit, call Dolores M. Shellum at (651) 717-3526 or email:
