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.

Madness Monday -- Asking For Help#1

An update to my question regarding converting a PDF to a Jpeg brought many responses and many different methods.  See post of March 1.

I just called Smart Computing magazine's technical support office and presented my question to them. As a subscriber, the support is one of their benefits.  I was told there wasn't a way, other than getting an application downloaded to your PC.  Some applications may be free, free for a while or you pay immediately.

However, as I learned yesterday, a Mac will do it.  Kathryn Doyle at CaliforniaAncestors emailed, and had me send her my DAR certificate image to her, and within minutes I had the image back in a jpeg format!  Publically, I want to thank Kathryn.  In addition, Kathleen Brandt at a3genealogy had offered to do it for me as well.

I am thinking this might be an idea for the Monday posts.  And, I am hoping others have questions about blogging and technology.  Perhaps you could send me your question or questions, and I can post here.  I would love to hear your suggestions about this idea.
