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.

Surname Saturday -- BOCKUS (Germany to New York to Canada)

More people write me pertaining to the surname of BOCKUS than any other surname. Although 324 Bockus names in my database is a fair amount, I have double that for several other names. The majority of those researchers are working on their Bockus Canadian line. The reason I have so many names is due to my access to New York records, from the NEHGS library in Boston. Once I found out about their New York connection, I wanted to help my Canadian cousins, because few had access to the records I found. I am hoping this listing will help additional Bockus researchers.
