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.

Follow Friday -- Becky of KINEXXIONS

For many months, I've been following a fabulous blog called Kinexxions by Becky Wiseman.  She began her journey alone, from Indiana last August, and has traveled through New England, down south, then the southwest, west and up through many of the national parks. Since I had been in many of the parks and various other sites, I've enjoyed her journey on a personal level.

Follow Friday is a day when genealogists can write about another blog, book, genealogy society / historical society or anything they recommend to others. For this reason, I choose Becky's site.

Today, when she posted a map of her newest detour, that of driving to Alaska (see her map, click to enlarge), I thought this would be a great way for children to follow along.  Many still have a month of vacation, and they can take the trip with her.  What a wonderful way to learn.  And, as she mentioned today, she might not always have wifi, so if there is a lapse, you can always go back through her blogs and read about other locations and see some of the best photos you will ever see.  She doesn't sightsee like me....she does it, as in taking long hikes and getting the best shots (unlike mine taken a few feet from the car). In addition, she explains things and discusses isn't just photos.

I wish her a safe journey and hope many of you will follow her along this great journey.
