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.

Genealogy Reviews from Two Magazines

The two current (for March) magazines shown above have articles that might be of interest to some readers. As a lover of magazines, I often find bits of information pertaining to genealogy in them. Last night I found two.

It is without pleasure that the Entertainment Weekly magazine gave a review of “Who Do You Think You Are?” The write-up wasn't very good, but the rating of a D was pretty low. Considering this magazine is popular with TV viewers, it didn’t send a positive message to them, nor entice them to watch.

Smart Computing has an article, "Find it Online, Root out Your Family History." The magazine has always covered new genealogy products, so this wasn't a surprise. Covered are reviews of six genealogy sites, Dick Eastman's newsletter and Family Tree Builder.
