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, Wisconsin, 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.

Wordless Wednesday - President Clinton

William "Bill" Jefferson Clinton
Back to the White House after a jog.  It was a warm but very cloudy day.
Got a hug and these pictures.  We met at a walkway intersection.
Note:  Little security, but this was 1994.

Isn't it amazing the way the security has had to change. So sad. Great pictures!

Lori, thanks for commenting. I was the first person he came to, and I wish I had had my picture taken with him.

President Clinton is one of my favorite modern day Americna President. I always have a wish to meet him one day, some day, I am glad you did. What did he say to you? How did he come across as? How did you feel meeting the President of the United States?

Barbara Poole said...

Sanjay, I had seen him about 15 times before this, always at little distance. He was always jogging (I walked around the ellipse by the WH every morning, so I saw him coming and he had to have seen me at 7:45). Can't remember what I said, prob. something like it was nice to meet him. It was of course thrilling, but just about everybody at work had seen him at one time or another. But I did get the pic. and hug.
Google ellipse white house, go to wikipedia and scroll down to the pic. of the ellipse circle. If you want more info. please email me. Thanks for writing.

He looks so young, and quite relaxed. Yes, the 90's were less turbulent times, I think. Clinton always seems like such an affable guy!

Barbara Poole said...

Wendy, it was before Monica, or at least before it broke in the news. In DC everybody seemed to like him.

How lucky are you!!! He and Hillary are two of my favorites. I probably would have fainted! Too cool to have a photo of your meeting.

Barbara Poole said...

Thanks Lindalee for writing. Because of these comments, I've decided to post photos of another president, and other presidental stuff. Thank you for your comment.
