Thomas Rogers was one of the passengers who signed the Mayflower Compact. He died during the first winter. His son Joseph Rogers was also a passenger. Individuals who can prove their linage are eligible for membership in the General Society of Mayflower Descendants and the Thomas Rogers Society. This project was created by the by the Thomas Rogers Society to further our goal: That the descendants of Thomas Rogers shall keep his memory alive so that he may have his rightful place in the history of America with the other Pilgrims who came to this country on the Mayflower. To establish a Memorial Fund through which the memory of Thomas Rogers, Pilgrim shall be perpetuated. To support the publishing and distribution of a book to be named "Thomas Rogers, Pilgrim, and Some of His Descendants", in which all known descendants of Thomas Rogers, insofar as possible, are authenticated and made a matter of Record. The Society is organized exclusively for Charitable and Educational Purposes.
