The best documentation to look for is vital records such as the birth, marriage, and death certificates for each person. Other documentation might include published genealogies, family documents, and other official records. If you have a relative who is a member of the Society, you may be able to use their lineage documentation to help you with your research.

Print out the Preliminary Application Form from our web site, and fill it out beginning with the name of your Pilgrim ancestor. On the next line, list his son or daughter, and who they married. Then list the next son or daughter and their spouse, through the generations down to you. There is now a non-refundable $10.00 fee per inquiry for this service.

Make a copy for yourself and send in this preliminary application along with a check for $10.00 per inquiry, payable to SMD-NJ, to:
