Genealogy Presentation to Consider ‘The Mayflower Compact’

The Mayflower Compact was a written agreement signed by the male passengers on the Mayflower, who, after leaving England, decided to make and enforce their own laws — setting the stage for the American way of life. Having fled persecutions for their religious beliefs in Holland and England, passengers on the Mayflower had no sponsor, nor a set of regulations to guide them.

Hansel, a Princeton University graduate, teaches constitutional law and political thought. He has also founded the non-profit Elm Research Institute to protect and preserve the American Elm.

All are invited to listen to this Zoom presentation.
