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.

Simon Bradstreet at the State Capitol

Portrait of Colonial Governor, Simon Bradstreet of the Massachusetts Bay Colony.
Located at the State Capital, Boston, Massachusetts.
He was my 8th Great-Grandfather.

I was at the NH state capitol in Concord last month and I was amazed at all the portraits, too. I didn't have time to photograph them, but I did pick up a brochure listing all the art. Your post definitely has inspired me to go back with my camera!
