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.

Monday Madness -- Jamboree and my "Brick Walls"

Many years ago, at least 13, I prepared the below flyer to be posted to a wall at a Jamboree.  I mailed it, assumed it was posted and never heard from anybody.  No problem with that.  However, I am wondering if this was for the same Jamboree coming up soon.  When I located this gray sheet recently, I began to wonder, and with all my senior moments, I thought somebody could remember for me.

After all these years, only 5 walls have come down.  Those being: ANDERSON, DUMONT, LAY, ROSENBERGER AND SCHRAMBLIN / SCHRAMBLING.
