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!

I am so loving the gingerbread squirrel! I remember years ago, when we were very young and poor, we had no money to decorate our first Christmas tree. So we trudged into the woods and collected a hefty bag of pinecones; I delved into my bags of calico scraps to make bows, and made gingerbread ornaments...out of stencils I'd used to decorate our baby's room because I had no cookie cutters! My tree was full of gingerbread bunnies, bears and rockinghorses. It was my favorite tree ever! Thanks for bringing that memory back after 25 years....
Love the idea of the squirrel in the wreath, so warm and inviting!
Take Care,
