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.

Colebrook and Dixville Notch, New Hampshire Trip


Soon after our June 2011 two-day visit, and two meals there, this resort closed. I save the breakfast menu from my first trip ca. 1985, see below. We didn't get a menu like this in 2011. While we strolled around, we saw very few people inside and out (see parking lot below). This was my second trip to this place, and I hope it re-opens soon.





Dixville Notch,
In this room, the first votes are cast for the President of the United States. The below photo shows the results of the 2000 election.


  
 As you can see, there are no people around in these public rooms.
  
  
  A few hours were spent in Quebec.

  Colebrook, New Hampshire 
was lovely, we enjoyed spending a few nights there.





 The Lupines were in season.
  

Colebrook is on the yellow line, in the middle of the map, Canada to the north, and Dixville Notch to the right of Colebrook.

The photos below were taken in 1985.




The Facebook page for The Balsams keeps the public up-to-date with information and photos.
