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.

I am wondering if my Ranney family from Upper Houses, Middletown, Middlesex County, Connecticut and your family (above) were acquainted! Nathaniel Ranney and his son, Comfort, lived in the area during this time period. Comfort and his son (and their families) migrated to the Ohio Western Reserve in the 1850's. Small world, isn't it?

Hi Liz, Even though this direct line of mine stayed in CT, you are right, so many migrated west to Ohio. I've seen the Upper Houses book, and should look at it again.
Welcome to the world of blogging. Have lots of fun with it.
