My blog has been changed to make it more appealing for those who have New England ancestors and want to see the area through photos. Things I’ll include are typical white New England churches, libraries showing their genealogical collection, historical societies, cemeteries, war memorials, in general, anything to do with history.

For four years I’ve blogged mostly about my personal genealogy in New England (Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, and New Hampshire), New York, New Jersey, Michigan, Illinois, Wyoming, and the Eastern Townships of Quebec, Canada. I still will, can’t forget my own roots.

Please check out the labels on the right side for articles. The header tabs at the top are a work in progress.

A County-by-County look at Ancestry

 
This map has been shared many times since July 1, 2004, and it is in pretty rough shape.  However, I thought it might be interesting to some of the readers.  You could almost trace your ancestry.

Thanks, I enjoyed this. I had not seen it. I was wondering as I looked at the legend as to how was it your ancestry in the US would be American. Then I read further on how questions were answered; many don't know and don't care I guess.
Thanks

Hummer, Thanks for the comment. I am glad you saw this, and that is one reason I've kept it for over six years. It could be a tool used in tracing one's ancestors.
