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.

I saw Newhalls this week. I can't remember if it was in Marblehead or Littleton. I can check if you like. Those stones in Malden are gorgeous. I also have to get back and check those Marblehead names you gave me earlier. I definitely saw plenty of Cresseys. I've been a bit distracted by Thanksgiving I guess. Ah, Friday will be a wonderful day for relaxing and doing genealogy!

Thanks Marian. I didn't realize how lovely the stone carving was until I posted it online. No rush about the photos you took, whenever is fine with me. I wonder if we are ever going to find a common ancestor.

Hi cousin! These two are also my 7th great-grandparents (I think). Thanks for your posting, the photographs are beautiful!

Sara G, thanks for writing and letting me know this. As a result, I'll be posting the ancestry of my Newhall line next week. Do write, if you want to compare notes.
