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.

1972 Wedding, History and a Good Meal

On April 15, 1972, I attended a wedding in Sudbury, Massachusetts. The above menu is from that day. Yesterday, April 24, 2010, my husband and I went to the Sudbury Inn and ate there. They still serve the Yankee Pot Roast and Chicken Pot Pie, both are still delicious (prices much higher though).
The Inn / Restaurant shown above.
"Longfellow's Wayside Inn is proud to be the oldest operating Inn in the country, offering comfort and hospitality to travelers along the Boston Post Road since 1716." 

Revolutionary War events still taking place.

The wedding in 1972 was held at the Martha-Mary Chapel, just feet from the Inn.  Movie lovers may have see the Chapel on film, as it has been in many movies, including a few coming out this year.
Across the street is a beautiful, still working grist mill.

Oh, I'm so jealous. We tried to go there the week before Patriot's Day, when we visited Lexington, but Hubby's GPS died and we didn't have directions! We ended up just going home. It was lovely the last time we were there, about ten years ago.

Oh, what great photographs! They are enough to make me homesick for Massachusetts and all its beauty, history and good ol' Yankee food!

Thanks ladies. Heather, my husband and I are going to try and go each season. The Grist Mill photos are ok, but I want to retake them in the fall. Wendy, I ate for you. Yum.

That chapel is absolutely beautiful!

Jenna, I agree. If I remember, I'll let you know what movies showcase it.
