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.

Massachusetts Remembers 9/11 with Memorial and Names

When I came across the Boston memorial to the 206 Massachusetts victims of September 11, 2001, one day while strolling in the Public Gardens, I knew I had to share my photos and more importantly, the names of all those from Massachusetts who died. We will never forget.

The list of names came from 9/11 Victims With Massachusetts Ties (CBS Boston, September 11, 2011). Click on names to read their profiles.  The Massachusetts 9/11 Fund has a few activities for tomorrow, September 11, 2012. I am posting this a day early so that some of you might wish to attend tomorrow.

Such a sad day. Even one name was too many.

Tears are flowing. Thanks for posting this. My husband stopped on his way to Logan Airport this morning to put a flower next to Chuck Jones's name. He was his co-worker, and was killed on Flight 11. PS I'm adding your transcription to my list of Honor Rolls at I'll have to change the name from Veteran's to just Honor Roll this November.

Thank you, Barbara. The wounds in Boston were so deep.

That looks like a really nice memorial. It's a day we'll remember forever.
