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!

Pilgrim Hall Museum

Here is a link to Pilgrim Hall Museum- they have some collection available for viewing on line including the baby cradle of Peregine White- the first Pilgrim child to be born in America.

Argh, it is hard to type with a cat on my lap and one halfway over the keyboard, too! What an unusual name for a child - "Peregine" - and I thought kids today had fanciful names! Surprising information!

It sounds like those cats were happy though!
It is a very unusaul name- some day I will post some unusual pilgrim names again - it's fun!
