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.

A couple once again

In September 2010, I posted the above tombstone photo of Peter Rosenberger, buried in Krans Cemetery, Missisquoi Co., Quebec, Canada. His wife was mentioned, however I didn't have her photo. When it was taken in 1999 (before digital cameras) I ran out of film. Fortunately, a friend with ties to that area made a recent trip, and I asked if he would take a photo of his wife's stone, as I recall seeing them together. Thank you David Ellis for taking these four photos.

There's something quite touching about the way her headstone is leaning towards his :-)
