Any person able to document their direct descent from one or more of the following people may apply to the Society of Mayflower Descendants. Descent by adoption or step-parent does not qualify. Descendants do not have to have lived in the US. These are all passengers as there are no known descendants of the crew. Approximately one half of the Mayflower 1620 passengers died without leaving descendants.
