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.

Wow, that's the snazziest tombstone I've ever seen.

Do you know why it says Lewis Jones AD 1640 on top? I have a Watertown ancestor, Lewis Jones who lived 1605 - 1684. I wonder if this is the same person?

Wendy, snazziest is a great word to describe it. Thanks. I have to go back and walk around, because there is another panel on it, and I'll need to see what it says, maybe abt. the Jones of 1640.
