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 Section)




 Lexington, Massachusetts

The library has three rooms containing genealogical information. The room above (and below) is always locked and you need to speak to the Reference Librarian about using them. About ten years ago, you could just walk in, but not now. The yellow room is open and is often used for research or studying. It also houses old yearbooks, including the 3 that I am in. The third room was being used for a meeting, therefore, I didn't take photos.






A list of all the libraries with genealogy departments I've visited in New England and New York is below. All are linked to my post for that particular library.
