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.

Asking For Help -- Skokie, Illinois area

My husband helping me find a grave.

Do You live in the Skokie, Illinois area?
Follow-up:  An employee of the cemetery took photos for me in September 2011.

My grandparents are buried in the Memorial Park Cemetery and Crematorium, Skokie, Illinois. Many years ago, I wrote the Cemetery for information and received the information below. I sure would love some help if somebody could take photos for me. On March 21st, I submitted a request to FindAGrave...still hoping a volunteer will take a trek to the cemetery. But, if not, maybe a reader can help out.
