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.

Looking Back

My Looking Back post is something I do the last day of every month.

In late August, Susan Peterson of Long Lost Relatives surprised me with the Genea-Angel Award.  Since then, I have been trying to decide how to share it with other bloggers. Recently, I've been seeing "thank yous" to those who have left comments at several blogs, so, I asked Susan if she thought I should do it also. Without hesitation, she said, "yes." It is my pleasure to share this darling Genea-Angel Award to the following people. You may copy the link and post to your blog. Many, many thanks for the nice comments you have left at my site this past month. And again, thank you to Susan.

Please visit the below sites, if you haven't yet done so. They are all tops!

Greta Koehl of  Greta's Genealogy Bog for her Follow Friday was kind to include my new blog Flowers From My Area as one of her selections. Thank you very much. Even though flowers and nature have nothing to do with genealogy, I have discovered there are quite a few flower lovers out there. I have taken out my comment section there, so just sit back and enjoy.

My cousin, Claire who lives near Niagara Falls, New York went on a research trip and found three wills for me, two were for my direct ancestors. What a treat. I've yet to analyze them and figure out some names, but I will very soon. This is a project I can't wait to begin. I also received the Report of Separation from the Navy on my father, quite interesting and I look forward to writing about it.  I hope these things are completed by next month.
