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!

Happy Father's Day ca. 1924

I am sure this photo was not taken on Father's Day but it is the only photo I have of my dad and paternal grandfather together. My grandfather passed away not long after this photo was taken. Four years later my grandmother married his brother- the man I always knew as grandpa.
My dad also passed away a few weeks before his 55th birthday. So for many years my husband has been the only family I had to spend Father's Day with- and hope fully we will spend many more together. I am greatful to   my dad and grandpa's for the love the gave me and for making me who I am!
