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.

Kemps -- Are the ones below yours? Surname Saturday

Carolyn Bannister and other readers have written me about the KEMP line and I've never been able to help, because as far as I know, they aren't related to me, and I don't have enough information. The Kemps were neighbors of my ancestors, and their paths crossed, but for some reason quite a few people have written me about their families. I've posted, what I believe are two separate lines of the KEMP line. Quite possibly they are related, but I haven't found a connection. The first line is directly below, the second is in bold. If you have any information, I know Carolyn and others would be delighted to hear from you.

Pam, thank you for your memory and for taking the time to comment. I'll print the above out, study it and see what I can find. I'm sure I'll have questions.
