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.

I'm enjoying your series of photos of historical societies. It's fun to see ones I know, and to think about visiting some new ones I've never been to before!

Thanks Heather and Lucie. If either of you, or any other reader knows of another H.S. in New England, please let me know. I'm running out of towns.
Or, you have a photo I could borrow to post.

I love all these. You make available that which I would not be able to see otherwise. I have not cataloged all you have done, is this link a help? http://www.masshome.com/histsoc.html

Frances, thank you so much for the link, I've never seen it, and already it has helped me locate more locations nearby, like Billerica, the next town over! I so appreciate this link.
