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!

Marriage Records Of Edward Bump & Maraih Benson

I have been lucky enough to find the marriage records for my great grandparents on line.
The book that contains these records is at Wareham , Massachusetts. There are two entries- one that contains the date they filed their intent to marry and the other the date they actually married and who married them- what a find! I am ecstatic!
1:270 Bump, Edward Wareham Benson, Maria Middleborough m. 24-Nov 1748 Israel Fearing Esq.1:272
Bump, Edward Wareham Benson, Meriah Middleborough int. 09-Apr 1748
Note the differences in the spelling of her name- I have seen it spelled Mariah on more than one document- so I am assuming that the correct way is Mariah. Such a pretty name- if onlyI could travel time back in time to meet them!

Deb, you're so right! Wouldn't it be so fun to have a time machine or at least a way to peek back into time? I would love to gaze at even the most ordinary things from long ago -- even the inside of a turn-of-the-century general store would be heavenly to see!

It would be great! There are so many things I would want to see!

What a find Deb, it's great when we find info about our ancestors.....
I have a full subscription to ancestry.com and there are great USA records on there eg. census, social security death index, immigration/emigration, some BMD, military, etc. Obviously some records are not on there but I have found great details for some of my ancestors who emigrated to the US. If you want me to look anything up for you please contact me through my email.....Hugs Chrissy xx
