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.

Clearly a new stone.

Thanks for posting - Thomas Lord is my 10th great grandfather. I think we we must be cousins through our colonial Connecticut ancestors several times over :-)

Elizabeth, thank you for writing, and I would think we are related. My surname for Saturday will be the Lord line, and for a few generations, you'll be able to see who I have. Any time you want to write personally, we can exchange information.
