Welcome To Pilgrims and Pioneers!

After many years of researching my family geneaology I have been lucky enough to discover actual information about my relatives that lived in the Pilgrim Era and the Pioneer Era- while many people also have realtives from those eras- many do not know their names or where they lived- actually seeing the proof in print makes you much more aware of who they really were.
After discovering these relatives it of course made me curious to learn more about the eras that they lived in and what their lives were like as, the history I learned in grade school had long since been forgotten.
I decided to start this blog for others who are also interested in these eras.
Some of the information here will be actual facts about my realtives and some will be information about the eras in general that I have found on the web.
I hope you will enjoy traveling back in time with me!

Dyeing Easter Eggs the Natural Way

To color you eggs the natural way add the items listed below with 1 tablespoon of Vinegar to your water and boil for 20-30 minutes.

Coffee or tea will give a tan or brownish color

Yellow onion skins a yellow/tannish color

Red Onion skins a pink/purple color

Orange peels an orange/ yellow color
Lemon peels a yellow color
Beets a deep purple color

Grape juice a Lavender/purple color

Spinach a green color
Turmeric a yellow color
Blueberries a blue/purple color
Letting your eggs steep for awhile after boiling will deepen the color. The longer they set in the brew the darker your colors will be.
