The Piscataqua Pioneers

The Piscataqua Pioneers is a unique historical and genealogical society that celebrates our connections to the original settlers of the Piscataqua River watershed before 1776.

Portsmouth, NH and Kittery, ME located at the mouth of the Piscataqua River… the seaside communities of New Castle, Rye and Hampton, NH and of York, ME and up to Dover, NH. From the Great Works and Salmon Falls Rivers to Berwick, ME… the settlements of Newington, Greenland, Newmarket and Durham, even to Stratham and Exeter, NH. These were all places where our ancestors settled, lived, fought, helped to grow, and die.

    Hello Charles,

    Is there a way to find out where I fall into place with these stories you post about?

    • Hi Lucretia,
      The post you commented on is referring to the Piscataqua Pioneers (PP) genealogical society specifically and what they are all about. The intent behind this post… and others like it… is increasing the awareness of organizations that family members might be interested in joining in order to learn more about the times and places where our early ancestors once lived. Did this answer your question ??

      FYI, my application for membership in the PP is currently under review and will hopefully be approved shortly.
