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!

Who Is this Pilgrim at Plimoth?


This photo shows a Pilgrim man dressed in authentic perod clothing of the time. The photo was taken at today's Plimoth Plantation- it does not say who the person is being portrayed- could it be Capt. Miles Standish? Isaac Allerton? Eduoad Bompasse?. Let your imagination be your guide!
There are many more names to choose from:
John Cooke
William Brewster
John Adams
Stephen Hopkins
Richard Warren
William Bradford
and many more
Do you see a realtive here?
For a great interactive link about the first Thanksgiving scroll down to the Plimoth in the fall post!

I wonder who it is, too. It looks like they get things totally authentic, down to the guns and shoes, even!

It seems they are very authentic- that's why it would be wonderful to visit there!

My Dad and I have been doing a little geneology research and believe we may be descendents of William Brewster. We're still piecing the puzzle together!

It would be so wonderful if you were descended from William Brewster! Hope you find all the pieces!
