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.

The Concord River is in the background.

Paul Efthemios Tsongas
Born:  February 14, 1941, Lowell, Massachusetts
Died:  January 18, 1997, Lowell, Massachusetts

Paul was a former politician and candidate for president.
See Wikipedia for more information.
When I was working at the Giant Company, I used to have lunch with his mother. I remember how proud she was of her son.

I recognized his name as a politician immediately. I remember when he ran for President - '92, I think. That looks like a peaceful spot.

Susan, his widow is now a congresswoman from Lowell, so you might hear the last name in the news on occasion.

A good man. His mother had reason to be proud.
