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.

WRIGHT (3 Generations) Connecticut

The WRIGHT line was the first I worked on, because my mother and great-grandmother used ASHER WRIGHT as their DAR patriot. Therefore, I had a great start, and lots of information at hand. I have very little information about the other names in the tree, and hope somebody will find this information useful, or offer to share their own data. My direct lines are in green.  If you have any of these names and wish to share information, please contact me.
