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.

Summer Break

Just a week ago I wrote a post, A Step-grandmother Connection about my step-grandmother, Edna and how a relative, Claudia, contacted me, after she googled my grandfather's name with hopes of finding information. Within a quick week, Claudia has been in contact with a family member of Edna's. We now know where she is buried (New Britain, CT, where I was born!) and other bits of information. What a wonderful conclusion, and for that I am thankful this Thursday.


I just wrote my 500th blog, to be posted on Saturday. Now it is time for a break. I also just did my 100th post on my Flower blog, Flowers From My Area (which includes gardens throughout New England).


Everybody have a wonderful summer.
Photo taken for the New England Bash logo, this is the Nubble Light at Cape Neddick, Maine
Updates:
My break was two weeks.
The relative of my step-grandmother, Claudia is indeed a good friend. We're in almost daily contact, and I hope to meet her in a few months.
The Blog, "Flowers From My Area" is now incorporated in the "Seeing New England" blog.

Tombstone Tuesday -- What Would You Do?

My June 7, 2011 post was a request for help. I'd love to have somebody take a photo of my grandparent's graves. This came about because I went through some old correspondence with the cemetery, dated 1998 and 1999. The thought came to my mind, what if I hadn't written the letter, what if I had used email instead and didn't print out the reply. A few what if's, but I'm thinking that is what is happening these days. No hard copies anywhere, and surely none coming in the mail.

Below are two sections of a letter Memorial Park Cemetery sent to me. The first section tells me that William Frederick Poole and Charles Poole are not buried there. When I received that, it was an eye opener and within a few weeks, I discovered where they were. William is buried just 35 miles from me, and  Charles is buried in Washington, DC. Both died in Illinois. It is important to not assume where they died, if you don't know for sure.

Then I was informed there were two spaces available in the plot of my grandparents. Both of their children are deceased (my aunt and father), and there are now six grandchildren. Perhaps I read that 12 or so years ago, but I was probably more intent in finding where William and Charles were buried. Now, reading it again, I'm wondering what to do. Perhaps try to contact some of the cousins, we all live in different states, but until I get the addresses, I'll write the cemetery and put in writing that it is my desire to donate the plot.

The letter below proves it is necessary to contact cemeteries when looking for a more recent ancestor's burial. You never know what they have in their files. (I enlarged the print so you could read it easily.)

A Few Firsts in Boston

The Boston Public Library Courtyard
I've never seen the Boston Public Library Courtyard, it underwent a face change years ago, so I made a point to see it before checking out the Farmer's Market and meeting Bill West. The courtyard is a perfect place to grab a bite or eat the lunch you brought.

After a stroll through Copley Square, I headed to the New England Historic and Genealogical Society (NEHGS) to meet fellow blogger, Bill West, for the first time. A quick run through the building indicated he wasn't there yet, so I chatted with a few people I knew, and shot a number of photos.

Bill arrived, and even though the building was packed, because it was open to the public for free. Everything was beautifully organized for the visitors, including a separate place for children to learn about genealogy. As I was chatting with Josh Taylor, Bill appeared. So, of course, after a quick intro, I took a photo of the two.  I gave Bill a tour of the building, and suggested he have his free consult with David Allen Lambert, and he did. After that, we went took our lunch to Copley Square. We talked non-stop and had a good time. I walked him back to NEHGS, then I decided to do my thing.


Bill West is in front.
NEHGS didn't need an extra body there, and since I'm a frequent visitor, I decided to leave.  This was the first time I went to NEHGS and didn't do any research! One of the employees told me the following week, they had over 350 visitors! I left very early and headed to the Boston Public Gardens. That was a first in over 30 years. Boy, was I amazed at the flowers. Those of you who know about my flower blog, you must know, I was in heaven.
Since the weather was super, I then walked to King's Chapel Burying Ground. I had been there several times, and more recently in the winter. I knew my ancestor, Roger Clap was buried there, but I wasn't able to locate the stone. On Friday, the Church was open, and I asked if there was a list of burials. Yes there was, and I got a map, but even with that, I couldn't locate it. I took a number of photos. In the evening, I was looking at my shots, and low and behold, there was the stone for Roger Clap!!
I ended my wonderful day, seeing five huge rigs with the equipment for the Keith Urban concert that evening. I really wanted to stay, but it was out of the question.

 Information about King's Chapel (Top has pages 1& 4, Bottom has pages 2-3
Tidbits of information from pamphlet.
Was the first Anglican Church in New England.
After the American Revolution, it became the first Unitarian Church in America in 1785.
The pulpit is the oldest in the United States still in use on its original site. It is called a wine glass pulpit.
King's Chapel was the first church in America to use an organ.
The largest bell ever cast in the Revere foundry and the last made by Paul Revere himself is still run for all services. It weighs over a ton.
