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.

That is too funny. There are some days I don't get along with anybody, never mind myself! This is my only Irish line, gee maybe I should celebrate St. Patrick's day this year. Thank you for your comment.

Everyone is Irish on St. Patrick's Day!

Barbara Poole said...

Heather, you are right!

Wendy Hawksley said...

Wow, what lovely tombstones, particularly the older ones. It is always so interesting to find that one line that stands out a bit as different, isn't it? We go along thinking all our ancestors are in Massachusetts or Connecticut and then - oop! We've got an immigrant ancestor from an unexpected place. And that's always welcome. :)

Wendy, I almost forgot about them being from another land. Imagine my surprise finding them marrying in Boston. Thanks for the comment.
