The Oregon Society of Mayflower Descendants meets twice a year. One meeting is in late April or early May, the other in November. They are usually held in the Portland area, or in Corvallis. Meetings normally are luncheons, held on a Saturday, with a speaker.

Our next Oregon Mayflower meeting will be held May 3, 2014 at Hayden's Lakefront Grill in Tualatin, 11:30 a.m. Our speaker will be Emily D. Aulicino from the Genealogical Council of Oregon. Emily specializes in genetic genealogy and will be speaking about the Mayflower DNA Project and DNA testing for genealogy.
