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.

Griswold of Connecticut -- Surname Saturday

Several readers gave suggestions as to the surnames they wanted me to post. In my blog, "Help, Please Tell Me Which Surnames You'd Like to See" of May 19, 2012, I received a few responses. Two of them suggested GRISWOLD, yes, another old Connecticut line and of course, from Windsor and Killingworth. In my first generation, I have three direct lines of Griswold. My direct lines are bolded in green. Please write if you would like more information or sources.

Hi Barbara,

In this post I saw the surname Post (no pun intended). Could it be that she was of Dutch descent? I noticed there is another blog showing the Post name (Tales of an aspiring family historian). If you want me to I can add Post to the list of your names.

Peter, this Post line came from Hollingbourne, Kent, England and arrived in 1634 at Cambridge, MA. For many generations they lived in Connecticut. You've got a keen eye for names!

It's always the same with these Brits. They should have used the name Mail rather than Post...
