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.

Wordless Wednesday -- The Engagement at Table 40

"Table 40 in Parker's Restaurant*  is where John F. Kennedy proposed to Jacqueline Bouvier." 

*Now known as Omni Hotels and Resorts. This location is in Boston, Massachusetts, and it was the first time I was able to take the photo without people in the dining room.

How cool! I've been there and didn't know this story. We always try to sit in Kennedy's booth at the Union Oyster House, but usually it is full with a waiting list!

How cool is that? And getting to learn some history at the same time.
