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.

Again, another match in my database! I found Simmons Secomb, and at first I was puzzled as to why he was in the family tree, but then I saw RAND, I am descended of Thomas Rand and Sarah Edenden, Elizabeth Rand's grandparents.

Heather, we will have to compare our Rand lines. Are you keeping track of these connections?

To the person who didn't leave a name, I have no idea what you mean by "where my family entered" into your line. Pretty hard to determine, since I don't know your line. You may email me, if you like, and we can take it from there.
