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, Wyoming, 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.

The book below was reprinted by my 5th cousin Pat and sent to me as a gift.  Over the years, I have entered the 52 pages of genealogical information into my tree and now it is time to let it go.  Pat has given me permission to donate it to the New England Historic and Genealogical Library (NEHGS) in Boston.
