A family member may sponsor for junior membership any individual less than 18 years of age who is of the same family and bloodline as the sponsor and has a prima facie proven lineage. The completed application form should be accompanied by a one-time fee of $25.00 and a copy of the junior’s long-form birth certificate. The child will receive a Junior Membership Certificate, a birthday card each year and a November mailing about Mayflower history. Junior memberships expire at the age of 19, but a junior may apply for adult membership after the age of 18. If the application for adult membership meets the usual requirements and is submitted before the age of 19, the Arizona Mayflower Society will waive the processing fee and the dues for both State and General Society for that year; however the applicant will still pay the General Society application fee. The Junior Membership Application form may be obtained here.
Junior Friends include adopted and step children (less than the age of 18) of adult members of the Arizona Mayflower Society. This will allow children of blended families to feel part of the Mayflower family. The adult member may be a parent, grandparent, or other close family member, and will complete the Junior Friends Application Form, but will not need to provide birth certificate or any other documents since this is a special category and does not involve lineage to a Mayflower ancestor. There is a one-time fee of $25.00, and the child will receive a special Junior Friend certificate, a birthday card each year and a November mailing about Mayflower history. This is a special certificate and cannot be used in any way as proof of eligibility for adult membership. The Junior Friends application form may be obtained here.
