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.

The Librarian's Guide to Genealogical Research -- Examples

Friday's post was about a book I've used many times and I recommended it to researchers, mainly for some unique forms. In my last paragraph, I indicated I wrote to the publisher for permission to share some examples with you. He responded today, and his reply was I could, as long as I print the credit, provided by the publisher.

Example 1 is a checklist for Genealogical Research 1950-2000.

Example 2 is a checklist of Personal Genealogy Sources.

Example 3 is a Federal Census Chronology for following a person in several censuses from 1790 to 1860.

Thanks for mentioning this book and showing us some of the forms. The checklist for personal genealogical sources is the most extensive list I've ever seen.

Thanks Nancy. Your comment makes my effort to get the permission worth the effort. Enjoy.

I am very impressed. One of the libraries in a nearby town has a copy. The next time I'm over that way I'm going to stop and take a look at it.

Michelle, I hope you like this book and the checklist.
