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

A year ago I began posting my cemetery stone photos for the Tombstone Tuesday entries on my blog.  It became a huge project, since none of the 10+ year old photos were scanned and I had no organization whatsoever. In addition, I added them all into Find-A-Grave. That project is now complete and if I hadn't begun a blog, none of that would have been accomplished! Today, I posted my last Tombstone Tuesday posting. I've already begun a list of cemeteries to visit in spring. Did you know that Find-A-Grave now has 54 million grave records online?

Although, I haven't yet ordered a flip-pal (see 2-part blog review by Susan of Long Lost Relatives), I did subscribe to GenealogyBank thanks to Greta of Greta's Genealogy Bog and thanks to Elizabeth of Little Bytes of Life who mentioned the half price special at Footnote, I subscribed immediately before the deal expired. I've learned one thing from my blog friends, if somebody orders something, then we all seem to want it...I could go broke soon. But, it is so much fun.

A follow-up on my post about Historical Societies, this post now contains more photos of Historical Societies in New England. Recently, I took additional pictures, they are from Massachusetts: Sawyer House (The Bolton Historical Society), and from Keene New Hampshire is the Cheshire County Historical Society.
