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.

Where Is He? -- Wordless Wednesday

Does anybody know if all these old photos were taken in Kilburn, England?
(Photo of my grandfather at least 50 years ago.)

Any luck with Google Earth and these photos?? And, Lisa Logsdon may be able to explain how to do a Google photo compare. I fear I have forgotten how she did it. SIGHH Ole leaky memory.

Thanks Carol for the suggestion. I know where the town is, but am wondering of the bottom 2 photos are also in Kilburn. Wouldn't be funny if Lisa has been there?

Can't help you with the location, but until I watched American Pickers this week, I never would have known that was a mill stone in the first photograph! The pickers were on a hunt to buy one for William Shatner. This design even looks very similar to one that a mill stone collector had.
