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.

Bites of News -- Social, Social

As I was about to toss my issue of Smart Computing, (February 2011) issue out, the new issue of Internet Genealogy arrived (April/May 2011). As a long time subscriber, actually a charter subscriber to Smart Computing, I've mentioned the magazine before. I thought some readers might be interested in seeing what the topic of the day is.

It is no surprise that Internet Genealogy has articles about social media, every issue seems to cover something along that line. However, Smart Computing is a different matter. Their article, Get Connected, How Social Networking Can Benefit Your Business runs from pages 56 to 71, no small article for sure. Chapters includes the following:

  •  Put Your Business On Facebook
  • Get Linkedin
  • Put Social Networking To Work
  • Beyond the Big Names

Same Pattern -- Wordless Wednesday

My mother majored in textiles in college and loved sewing.
As a result, just about everything I wore was made by her.
We lived near San Francisco, so I am assuming these photos were taken in the winter.
