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, Wyoming, 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.

How special.

I don't know how people of that time period celebrated anniversaries, or even if they did... but it would be hard to forget a Christmas anniversary!

Now that's a cool day to get married.

Thank you Carol, Nancy and Michelle for your comments. A little secret here, I've posted this the past three years, because it's so appropriate for this day.
