Mayflower Memories

I'm thinking of my relatives this Thanksgiving season.





My grandparents (great x 12).

No wonder I have that adventurous spirit...

Happy Thanksgiving everyone.  

We hope you have a wonderful day, with many blessings, and lots of good food.  

And a big Thank You to my Aunt Gayle


for tracking down our ancestry.

(Aunt Gayle has an even more adventurous spirit than I do...it's in our DNA...)


Until tomorrow, God willing (from whom all blessings flow...)

Happy Thanksgiving, Sherry!

Living in New England, we have often visited Plymouth Plantation...been on the Mayflower II...and witnessed the first Thanksgiving reenactments. Living History is so amazing...and discovering about those who came before us can really give us a sense of "belonging". May you and yours have a very blessed Thanksgiving today...as you give thanks to the One who "brings the harvest"!

Sweet blessings,
Laura

How wonderful that your family (and Aunt Gayle!) has been able to trace your roots back that far....We have a tentative connection, but are still working on piecing together a few broken chains. Wishing you and your family a wonderful and joyous holiday of blessings as well Sherry....Smiles & Thanksgiving Hugs ~ Robin

Ancestry is interesting, it appears that one of my ancestors may have come here to escape the law in Denmark. Can't be sure, though. Happy Thanksgiving!

**That would be "pilgrims"...:) It's good, either way you look at it!
