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.

Lewis 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. One suggested LEWIS from Connecticut. Later today, I will be posting another Lewis line, this one from Massachusetts. My direct lines are bolded in green. Please write if you would like more information or sources.

Could you comment on #36 Rebecca Lewis and #37 Rebecca Lewis (Connecticut Lewis's). Is the repetition of her name an anomaly of the source, a typo, or what? I'm new to your blog, and am happy to find it. --Sue in MA

Hi Anonymous, you are absolutely correct, either I added one too many, or there were 3 (2 died), and I've got #2 & #3 mixed up. My source is: Curtis, Ellwood Count, The Descendants of John Curtis & Elizabeth Hutchins, (Privately Printed, Sept. 2000). I will double check. Is this your line? If so, I could email you when I find out.
Thanks for pointing this out.

Hi, My line is the Robert Welles, so this is just a diversion in cousinry, as it were. While you're at it, Martha Lewis's sons James and Benjamin Judson both m. Elizabeth Curtis's. Is this, by chance, the same woman? I know it was common for a widow to be so-married... - Sue in MA

I will double check, but I would think there are two. (I normally use a ruler, as I type.)
