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.

Remember Roots Tech 2012? Now you can View the Lectures for FREE

What a surprise, after over a month, Roots Tech 2012 has finally decided to make available the individual lectures many of us saw in early February. At that time, we were glued to our computers watching the outstanding lectures. Even the minute they were over, I wanted to watch again, but we were told they would be available soon. I've thought about them, but hesitated to ask anybody for fear of appearing stupid for not knowing the answer. It paid off, I just saw the announcement on Google+ by Dave Barney. He wrote, "Individual session videos are now live on RootsTech!

There are 12 that were streamed live, and five new ones. In addition, "Jay Verkler's keynote "Inventing the Future, As a Community" and Ron Tanner's presentation "Future of FamilySearch Family Tree" will be posted at a later date."

So friends, go to the site, and pick a lecture to watch for the first time or the second. I, for one, am very glad to have these available.
