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.

Tombstone Tuesday - LORD of Connecticut

Duck River Cemetery, Old Lyme, New London Co., Connecticut

Richard Lord
Born:  May 16, 1647, Saybrook, Middlesex Co., Connecticut

His Wife Elizabeth Hyde
 Elizabeth Hyde Lord

Richard and Elizabeth Lord are my 7th great-grandparents.

A good example of three photos of the same cemetery stone can look very different.  See Find-A-Grave for an example of Richard Lord's cemetery stone.
