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.

Christmas Trees at the Big Rhode Island Estates

Many genealogy bloggers are spending the month of December writing about all aspects of Christmas. However, since I did that during the past two Christmas seasons, I've decided to post photos of some of the elegant trees taken recently, at two mansions in the Newport, Rhode Island area. Below are scenes from the Blithewold Mansion and the Marble House.
