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.

Looking Back -- 5 Historical Societies

LONDONDERRY HISTORICAL SOCIETY
MORRISON HOUSE MUSEUM
LONDONDERRY, NEW HAMPSHIRE


ANDOVER HISTORICAL SOCIETY
ANDOVER, MASSACHUSETTS


UNIQUE DOORS ON THE BARN.

TOWNSEND HISTORICAL SOCIETY, THE REED HOMESTEAD
TOWNSEND, MASSACHUSETTS

WESTFORD HISTORICAL SOCIETY

This will be my last Looking Back post. I feel it has run it's course, and there isn't any need to wait until the last day of the month to post the blog. However, all previous photos of Historical Societies may consolidated into their own category. I believe I have 11 other photos, and there are more to take.

Barbara, you must have visited Londonderry recently because we just had the carved sign restored and repainted. It was designed by the sculptor Patricia Varrani, who done many local statues, bas-reliefs, and a coin! It looks great in your photo!

All these photos were taken in May. Too bad the building was closed when I went.

It will be open on Old Home Day 20 August 2011. I'll be there running the weaving loom again, and there will be a revolutionary war encampment in the orchard behind the museum. Otherwise, it's appointment only. If you want documents, etc., they are in the history room at the public library down the street.

Thanks Heather. I hope to make it.
