The Society currently consists of over 500 descendants of the first settlers of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.


Members who are able to prove biological descent from more than one qualifying ancestor may submit additional lineages claiming supplemental ancestors. Supplemental enrollment has a one-time $50 fee.

Applicants submitting supplemental ancestors should use the standard Membership Application , writing the word Supplemental, along with applicant's Society Member Number, in the upper right-hand corner of the first page. Please read the instructions carefully. Proofs must be provided. However, you may use your approved lineage society record copy, including your Winthrop Society record copy (original application or other supplemental) for proofs of some generations.  The citation should read:  "WS # ____ gen ____", "DAR # _____ gen ____", or other society.  Include the record copy with your proofs, with appropriate generations marked in red.

Please contact the Registrar for further information.
