For Prospective Members

Why Join?

You do not need to join us to have complimentary, read-only access to all of the information in our Family Trees. However, we hope that joining us is right for you.

Our Members support the objectives of the Society, including the further development of Edward’s Tree.

PEDS is an all-volunteer organization. We hope that when you join us, you will contribute your knowledge to our endeavor. With your help, we can make this site the best OPEN SOURCE of information about the Doty Family in America on the Internet.

As a benefit of membership, Members enjoy additional access to this site and to the Trees. This includes, among other things, the privilege 1) to request that their Doty lineage be added or updated, 2) to run and print a variety of tables, charts and reports from the Trees, 3) to upload media files, and 4) to request custom reports.

Also, our Members are invited to register for FREE access to our Ancestry tree, and to contribute to the development of that tree, too. Finally, they have access to our Membership Directory, which includes the Doty lineage, if any, of each of our Members. Will you find an unknown cousin there?

Have you hit a brick wall in researching your Doty lineage? Do you need documentation for a Mayflower Society membership application? Maybe one of your cousins can help. Tell us your problem, and we’ll post it in our “Most Wanted” column. That’s what family is for.
