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!

Desperate Times Call for Desperate Measures

A few minutes ago  I heard this true story on the news.
A man went into a bank and handed the teller a noet that said I want one dollar and medical care.
Now since he tried to rob the bank of 1.00 he was charged with larceny and went to jail.
But once in jail he now has an appointment to see a doctor and will most likely will be having surgery soon.
 He said that going to jail was the only way to get the medical care he needed.
All I can say is: Shame on you America! Letting the economy get to this state is simply unexcuseable!!

WOW, it certainly is a sad state of 'life' to get to that extreme isn't it.
