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.

This post is fascinating to me because there are so many names from my own family tree. I don't think any are direct descendants of mine, but I recognize Phelps, Allen, Poor. Longfellow and Ingersoll are names right out of history, too!

Hi Barbara,
I think we have a cousin connection here. I'm descended from Edward Phelps' and Elizabeth Adams' son Samuel Phelps through my Abbott line. His granddaughter Hannah Phelps married
my 6x great grandfather Ephraim Abbott.
