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.

It is very pretty and I find that sentimental items like that are the ones that matter most. :)

I count four Mayflower ancestors for you.

Actually Mary, you are right. For some reason, I never count the parents. Thanks for pointing this out. Since you have the same line, who better to set me straight! Thanks.
