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.

Wow, what a gorgeous home! When I bring the husband home to meet the family, we'll have to try to visit it.

Thank you both with your "Wows." I've always wanted to see the house too, and at long last, did.

I add my "wow" - that house takes my breath away. Must get up to New England before too long....

I love the Mark Twain house. I grew up not too far from there.

Absolutely beautiful! I think photos of this home were on a recent TV bio/documentary I watched on Mr. Clemens. I still think of him being from Missouri and forget that he lived in many different places. The show I watched talked about how he was on the lecture circuit well into his senior years because the family's financial situation had bottomed out. It was really quite sad, I thought..... Thanks for sharing these photos!
