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.

Grandmother and Me

My grandmother, Sarah Dumont Ten Eyck Bishop.

 I don't remember this photo being taken, but it was in my grandparent's kitchen nook.  It is the only photo I have of us together, and this was probably when I first met her.  She died shortly thereafter.

Thank you both for your nice compliments. After posting this, I've decided to do my first timeline of her life.

What a nice photo! I'm just catching up on missed blogs from the past two weeks. This one really caught my eye. It's too bad you don't remember the moment, but now you have the photo.

That is a fantastically gorgeous photo. And it reminds me of the breakfast "nook" in my grandparents kitchen.
