Please print the Mayflower Lineage Review form and fill-out the requested information.  This is not an application, but a review to see if your proposed line is complete enough to start an application.  Fill it out starting with the name of your Pilgrim ancestor.  On the next line, enter his/her son or daughter, and who they married.  Continue listing each ancestor through the generations down to yourself.   Please mail the form (do not email) to our Historian: Idaho Mayflower Society, Idaho Mayflower Society, JoAnn O’Linger-Luscusk, 3700 W. Hill Road,  Boise, Idaho 83703-4285, 208-571-3712.    The historian will check your information, try to determine what portion of your line is already documented, and get back to you with the results.  Please expect to wait 4 - 5 weeks for your response.
