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!

Wow! Is That Really Burl Ives?.....

No it's my husband!
If you are old enough to remember Burl Ives you will certainly see the resemblance.
Every where we go people are always saying" Did you know that you look like Burl Ives?"
Being a pretty quiet man he does not say much about it- not sure if he is flattered or not- but if I had to guess I would say he is!
BTW he would have a fit if he knew I put this on here!LOL

Can he sing the *Big rock Candy Mountain *song?? that was my favorite till I went to actually see the mountain in Marysville,Utah and boy was I disappointed when all it was was yellow dirt, yes he does look like Burl no if he could strum a few notes

Debra said...

Nope- can't sing like Burl.

Burl Ives was a true gentleman and a very interesting soul -- don't know if you know this, but once upon a time he was a "hobo" when very young and he literally would sing for his supper with that incredible voice of his...your hubby looks great, love the goatee!!!

Debra said...

I didn't know that he had been a hobo! What an amzing turn around he had! I will tell hubby you like the goatee- I wouldn't know him without it anymore!
