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.

Have a Seat in Lowell, Massachusetts

Photos taken in Boarding House Park, facing the stage, with the Boott Cotton Mills Museum in the background. The trolley takes visitors, free of charge, to and from the Museum to the Lowell National Park Visitors Center.

What a nice idea! Cities have these calm, often unused spaces. Lowell is doing something to combat that!

Thanks Jenny for your comment. The entire green area is filled with people during the summer months when there are concerts and the largest free folk festival in the U.S. is held here.
