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!

The Women of Plimoth

The women of Plimoth did not have a radio, tv,computer or cell phone- so their life was a much simpler time. But that does not mean they had an easy life- far from it! They were responsible for cooking, cleaning, nursing the sick,working in the gardens. and sometimes tending the animals and working in the fields.
If the colony thought they had committed a wrong the were put in the stocks just like the men.
Above are some photos of Plimoth women at their work in there traditional dress.
