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.

Cary Memorial Library, aka Lexington Library, Lexington, Massachusetts -- Genealogy and History Room

 Lexington, Middlesex Co., Massachusetts

Three of the rooms below are for genealogy research, I believe two are always locked, so you will need to find a research librarian to unlock the door.

This room is a locked genealogy room (and below). When I was in high school, it was where I studied and got books to borrow.

The yellow room has the "tan books," the vital records for many towns/cities in Massachusetts.
