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.

Wordless Wednesday -- Easter Pictures

My first Easter, I think.

Painful to look at, because I hated dressing like my youngest sister.
Showing it, because the outfits were made by my mother.
Light blue fabric and the jacket was removable.

Love them both! Maybe you didn't like dressing like your sister, but the photo is wonderful! Your mom was a wonderful seamstress.

Lovely photos! I remember being dressed the same as my 2 younger sisters and hating it.

Love the photos Barbara ... my Mom also made many of our outfits. I never appreciated the attention to detail she lovingly put into our outfits until I was much older. Fortunately, Mom never dressed us alike but she often used the same patterns with different colors. I see that your Mom was also very talented - light blue is my favorite color :-) Thanks for sharing and for stopping by my blog.

Thank you all for your comments. Susan, I feel for you, maybe our mothers were from the same gene. Cindy, both of you, my mother majored in textiles in college and she made clothes for me until high school (ugh, ugh). Cindy S. you were lucky your mother used different colors.
